05 Places to try Famous Bangkok Street Food – A Never Ending Fiesta of Tastes

Just about every street corner in Bangkok will have food carts proffering aromatic fish cakes, BBQ pork ribs and hearty noodle soup. Listed below are some of the best venues for these popular dishes.



Authentic Bangkok street food does not get any better than Chinatown. Yaowarat as it is traditionally known is home to an innumerable collection of street stalls, carts, restaurants and markets. The place certainly deserves the number one spot since it is where Bangkok's street food was initiated almost 200 years ago. Enjoy sitting at the ad hoc tables ordering a Singa Beer and tucking into all kinds of delicious snacks, hot pots and crispy delights. Best of all the prices are easy on the purse and promise to keep you smiling long after you leave.


Silom Road

Silom Road is right smack in the middle of Bangkok's business district; hence there are lots of hungry mouths to feed come lunch hour. Catering to this there are plenty of street food districts in Silom. Head over to Soi Convent and Soi 20 where a variety of cheap street food is yours to savour. Succulent kebabs, comforting pots of noodle soup and sticky rice with mango are some of the treats to look forward to; Bangkok dining does not get any better than this folks.


Soi Rambutti

The place is not just a foodies haven the precinct is also ideal for a respite away from the maddening crowds of Bangkok. Soi Rambutti is a rather small food district and was hardly popular in the past but with a facelift and new uber chic image the less crowded precinct is loved for its variety of cheap Thai street food.



Banglamphu is located in the Chao Phraya river district. It is close to the Golden Palace and incorporates the popular backpacking areas of Khao San Road and Soi Rambutri. From this point if you walk towards the end of Khao San Road the possibility of tasting some of the best street food in Bangkok is high. Plenty of street stalls and food carts are found in the precinct for a night of utter indulgence. Guests at Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel will find these precincts are within easy access and should most certainly browse the area for an experience to remember; the fish cakes and noodle soup served here come highly recommended.


Soi 38 Sukhumvit

Soi 38 Sukhumvit is well known for its excellent selection of street food; the place is a buzzing hub of stalls and carts that seem to proffer a range of delicious dishes. The Tom Yum Goon is especially good while the likes of banana pancakes with chocolate syrup, fried pork and phad Thai noodles promise to tantalize your taste buds and have you coming back for more. The trick to savouring Bangkok street food is to base yourself in a central location, from there enjoy walking to the various districts.
