Bangkok street food comes in many shapes and forms. You can buy street food from roadside vendors, traditional shophouses and street markets. Bangkok street food has variety and they are never banal.
Noodles top the street food list in Bangkok. While you can enjoy noodle dishes at a Bangkok city hotel, for the most quintessential experience, you must visit the night markets – those lodged at Pathumwan Princess Hotel make an easy trip to Bangkok night markets.
You can witness the best street food scene on Chinatown’s main thoroughfare, which is Yaowarat. With the few restaurants lining the street, barbecued seafood fares to be the main highlight. However, if you are to experience a complete Chinatown experience, you must move around sampling as many dishes as you can.
You find the most legendary street food restaurants in Bangkok Old Town. Here, visitors get served the finest pad Thai in the city. The area starts getting busy from mid-afternoon.
Bangkok has a most diverse culture, which is reflected in its cuisine. The area of Bang Rak is a great example of this. The dishes you find in Bang Rak are suffused with Chinese, Indian and Western characteristics. If you visit Bang Rak, you will find crispy pork, green curry with roti, pork dumplings, rice porridge and baked bread to be very much in demand.
