Top 16 favorite places in Capital of Street Food
It’s not easy to narrow down the list of Bangkok’s best street food streets. Anyone who has spent time navigating the city surely acknowledges that there is without the stretch of the imagination.
1.Victory Monument (Anusawari Chai Samoraphum อนุสาวรีย์ชัยสมรภูมิ)
Victory Monument is such a good area for street food. Because it’s one of Bangkok’s main transportation hubs – countless buses load and unload at this giant roundabout everyday. It’s also served by the Victory Monument BTS station. Wherever there’s lots of people, there’s always lots of food.
2. Yaowarat (Chinatown เยาวราช)
Yaowarat road is the most famous street, cutting through the heart of Chinatown. But on the parallel Charoen Krung road, and down countless small market lanes, you’ll also find endless eating options.
3. Ratchawat Market (ราชวัตร) / Sriyan Market (ตลาดศรีย่าน)
Ratchawat is first and includes a fine selection of restaurants serving roast duck. Kobe beef noodles, and unnamed restaurant where a man in a shower cap cooks up a stir fried curry shark that burst’s with so much flavor. You will get the made of his professional cooking raise to your hands with a “hallelujah!”
4. Charoen Krung (เจริญกรุง) and Bangrak (บางรัก)
A walk down the entirety of Charoen Krung Road is bound to end with a full stomach. There’s no humanly-possible way (not that I’ve discovered) to resist the tempting delights that are thrown at you from every direction.
5. Bang Khun Non (บางขุนนนท์)
Bang Khun Non is the source of Som Tam Boo Maa (ส้มตำปูม้า). Som Tam Boo Maa is one of my all-time favorite restaurant for Isan food. There are also many other great restaurants on the streets. They serving dishes like yen ta fo (เย็นตาโฟ Thai pink noodle soup), khao ka moo (pork leg over rice), and roast duck (pbet yang)
6. Petchaburi Soi 5 (เพชรบุรี ซอย 5)
This soi especially comes alive in the evening. When you’ll find dozens of street food carts and restaurants with their doors open. They catering to many people coming home from work. Since it’s a neighborhood, much of the street food in the evening is for takeaway. But there are still some places to sit down and enjoy a meal.
7. Talat Phlu (ตลาดพลู)
The area is blessed with high concentration of skilled street food. A lot of personnel that prides themselves on serving some of the best things to eat in Bangkok. A number of street food stalls have received local Thai awards for their dishes. And including an ancient street cart serving a snack (kanom buang yuan ขนมเบื้องญวน). That is so famous it has been decorated with plaques and winning awards that dangle from the pole of the street light.
8. Rangnam (รางน้ำ)
There are a slew of trendy bars, international restaurants, hotels, and massages. Some fancier sit down restaurants (like Tida Esarn), and a worthy mass of street food stalls that sprout up especially in the evening time.
9. Sukhumvit 38 (สุขุมวิท 38)
Sukhumvit Soi 38 is frequented by tourists and expats.It has the best street food in Bangkok, but it is very convenient. The vendors are friendly, and you’ll find a decent selection of Thai dishes to choose from.
10. Tha Pra Chan / Banglamphu (ท่าพระจันทร์ บางลำภู)
You’ll find street food carts, snack stalls, shophouse restaurants. A number of vendors selling the famous traditional Thai snack of kanom buang (ขนมเบื้อง).
The market close to the river at Tha Pra Chan weaves around in a baffle of stalls and carts. One may as well close their eyes and just let their nostrils do the navigating.
11. Wang Lang Market (วังหลัง) by Siriraj Hospital (ศิริราช)
At Wang Lang Market there is a mind blowing quantity of street snacks and cute things to sample. I often have to need to take a breather in an attempt to analyze what to eat in the most efficient manner to maximize my stomach space.
12. Nang Loeng (นางเลิ้ง)
The market consists of picturesque ancient wooden buildings and grannies that have made the same home-made snacks and Thai desserts for the entirety of their lives. The Thai recipes of dishes at Nang Loeng are proven.
