So it comes as no surprise that the Victoria Monument, the main transportation hub in Bangkok is at the top of this list! There are abundant rows of street food stalls and restaurants lining the roundabout and the adjacent streets of the monument that serves an intoxicating range of mouthwatering foods. Don't miss out on the renowned Thai Boat Noodle alley located to the northeast of the roundabout! Victoria Monument can be reached via the BTS Skytrain which stops at the Victoria Monument station. The joints are generally open between 10 am to 8 pm.

Chinatown

At Chinatown, only the best of the best stalls and vendors survive. Home to some of Bangkok's most beloved and respected street food joints, Chinatown, or Yaowarat as it is locally known, is packed to the brim with mouthwatering dishes and magnificent food gems including unique and eccentric treats like suckling pig and bird's nest soup! Street food stalls usually open up during the evening and night. Chinatown can be reached via taxi or by taking the MRT to Hua Lamphong station, which is a 10 minute walk or short tuk tuk ride away from the street food haven.
