To ease your dilemma we have narrowed down quite a few choices to give you an experience to remember. From street food kiosks to lavish restaurants, from oh-so-sour to the best desserts and beverages, we have it all sorted for you. Have a look!
Noodles are probably one of the most hot selling street food snacks in Bangkok. Some of the readily available ones are:
Gieow (wonton): it is not the conventional noodle you may come across all the time, but it is more like pork mince enclosed on yellow dough.
Sen Yai: these are flat noodles made of rice flour.
Bah Mii: they are available with a little yellow tinge to it made of wheat flour and egg.
Boat Noodles: as the name depicts that they were sold from the boats on the floating canals. Boat noodles constitute rice noodles and a thick broth made of pork stock and blood.
GRILLED PORK (MOO PING)
It is one of the most widely available foods available on the streets of Bangkok. The aroma it exudes can be felt even before you walk past the kiosk. It tantalizes your sense of smell long before it touches your senses of taste. It comes with boneless pork marinated in soy sauce, served on skewers along with sticky rice.
There are uncountable versions of this Thai delight that it gets difficult to finalize which one you like the most. There is a Thai salad cart at Sukhumvit Soi 38 which offers a huge variety of salads on the menu. It includes papaya, blue crab and Som tam boo maa and many more for a reasonable price.
STICKY RICE MANGO
If you are fortunate enough to be visiting Bangkok during March-July, you are bound to bump into stalls and carts which sell this mouth watering and opulent Thai dessert which is made of sticky rice, coconut milk and mangoes. It costs around 60 baht.
Yes! You read it right- FRIED INSECTS. This may be the most unconventional food you might have tried. Eating them will be considered an accomplishment to boast about whether you end up liking them or not. Including grass hoppers, spiders and bugs they are deep fried with chilies so they can be very hot. They give a feel of popcorns in the mouth and pop as you chew like a crispy pop corn.
