Top 05 Street Food Locales in Bangkok – Strictly for the Serious Foodie

Bangkok is well known for its street food and the reputation is well deserved. Read on and make use of this essential street food guide on the best places to sample these delectable delights.


The Victoria Monument

The Victoria Monument is Bangkok's main transportation hub, always crowded and of course, well serviced by a number of street food stalls. A pretty good guide to follow when on a foodie trail, is to look for the crowds, where they gather so are the best street food experiences. Around the monument and connecting roundabout, you will find enough and more food kiosks and restaurants, which do not skimp on variety and flavour. A must try is the Thai Boat Noodle Alley which is tucked away on the northeast corner of the iconic roundabout.



Chinatown is tough on food vendors; only the best survive. Hence, you can be assured of savouring some of the best food in Bangkok. Yaowarat, as the precinct is better known, will be within easy reach of accommodation options provided by Chatrium Hotels & Residences or other centrally located Bangkok hotels; which is a pretty awesome deal for foodies. There you can look forward to not just a mouth-watering range of local cuisine but also little treasures, such as birds nest soup and the utterly delicious suckling pig. Plan your visit in the evenings, which is when the popular souvenir shopping district transforms into a bustling food street.


Sukhumvit 38

Sukhumvit 38 is at its best between 5 pm and 2 am; that is when hordes of tourists hit the place for treats such as pad Thai, Isan specialities of sticky rice, stir fried aham dtam song and pork with rice, fried egg and basil – heavenly! Home to some of the best restaurants in Bangkok, the area is easy to reach as it's well serviced by the BTS Skytrain. Take the BTS to the Thong Lo Station; the street is located right in front of the station.


Charoen Krung

You know you are close to Charoen Krung by the heavenly scents wafting across the air; made up of a variety of food kiosks the area dishes up, just about every type of food. Savour Thai noodles in all forms, discover the pleasures of dumplings, and sink your teeth into juicy slices of tropical fruit. You can hop a taxi straight to Charoen Krung or take the BTS Skytrain up to Saphan Taksin Station; best of all the food stalls operate both day and night.


Bang Khun Non

If you are on the scout for 'quality' street food; this is the place to head to. The place is more refined, less crowded and less noisy than other foodie streets. The area certainly does not lack in variety as a number of food stalls and restaurants offer one a chance to savour just about every type of popular street food in Bangkok. Must try dishes include, Kaho Ka Moo which is pork leg on rice and the classic Yen Ta Fo which is Thai Pink Soup. Located on the Thonburi side of the Chao Phraya River you can get there via taxi or the nearest BTS Skytrain.
