Street food in Bangkok is relatively cheap, plus it is authentic and yummy. If you are a foodie and yet do not want to spend a bomb eating your way through Bangkok... you have come to the right place :)
Street food in Bangkok is easy on your wallet and satisfies your stomach!
Chatuchak weekend market is great for both shopping and food. It is a rather huge market and will leave you walking through different areas exploring. Before you know it, almost an entire afternoon is gone!There are tons of street vendors selling coconut ice-cream and i strongly recommend to get one. The price depends on the number of toppings you choose for your ice-cream, perfect for the scorching weather.Besides the ice-cream, there are stalls selling pork buns and chicken/pork satay which you can easily grab and go while you are shopping. Oh yes, and don't forget the thai ice tea!
Pratunam is so-called the wholesale shopping area. This is where Platinum Mall and the Pratunam Market is located. Somewhere along the alley (sadly I forgot the exact soi number), there is a famous stall which sells char siew wonton noodles and braised pork rice. You can ask around and almost everyone will be able to tell you where it is. Or if you happen to walk past it, you definitely will not miss the long queue! Don't worry about queuing for too long as the table turnover rate is high.
Sukhumvit Soi 38 is a hidden gem. It is an alley of street food but take note that it only opens at night from about 7 pm onwards. I would recommend having their pad thai and mango sticky rice (these few stalls are located on your right as you enter the alley). And there is also a duck rice stall (which i thought was pretty yum) on your right if you walk further down the alley. There are actually alot of stalls for you choose from that i suggest if you are going in a group, to NOT each order a dish for yourself. Sharing several dishes in a group will give you more variety to try difference dishes :)Dining along the street with cars and motorcycles driving by is a rather authentic thai experience you will ever have.
