7 Spots for Superb Street Food in Bangkok

Thailand, Bangkok Guide (B): 7 Spots for Superb Street Food in Bangkok

Eating is huge in Bangkok, and luckily for the famished, you won't be that way for long, regardless of the hour. You can find conglomerations of vendors selling five-star fast food (in the you-won't-have-to-wait-long-to-enjoy-it sense, not McDonald's style) for under 100 baht (roughly $3.30), beginning at the crack of dawn until well past midnight, pretty much anywhere within the city limits of the Thai capital's tourist districts. Whether you opt to get your fast food fix inside a shopping mall (making Bangkok’s retail palaces as much of a must-visit destination as the ones where Siamese royalty used to reside) or on the side of the road, satisfaction is pretty much guaranteed. Then you can sweat it off on your walk back to the hotel! The bottom line: In Bangkok, you don't have to go to expensive restaurants to enjoy fine, five-star quality dining. In fact, you don't even have to leave the sidewalk!

If you opt to indulge on site, you’ll have a perfect view of joggers burning calories while you consume them. Oh, the guilt! Sunday (beginning around 6am) is the big morning for this outdoor mom-and-pop food court and grocer rolled into one, with pre-prepared and made-to-order Thai food, freshly squeezed orange juice and various sweet treats on sale, and fresh fish, meat, fruits and vegetables on the raw menu for foodies, who’d rather burn calories in their own kitchens, cooking up tasty delights in the comfort – and coolness – of home. ......
