Best Street Foods Of Bangkok, Thailand – Scoutripper
Did you know Bangkok is synonymous to street foods? Well, not technically but I believe this culinary heaven is one of the best places I’ve ever explored. If you are a big-time foodie, Bangkok’s diverse street food options are bound to leave your mouth watering.
In Bangkok, there is a saying very popular among its local people. It is ‘where there are people, there will be food’. And this totally indicates the food haven of this city of Thailand.
So, here I’m going to list some of the Best Street Foods of Bangkok that totally won my heart. There is a very important thing I noticed in the streets of Bangkok, I.e. fewer street foods on Mondays.
Hence, if you are planning to hop the streets of Bangkok on a Monday, it won’t be the best thing to do. As Mondays are street cleaning days here and as a result, there is a 50% decrease in street food carts.

Are you one of them craving for authentic Thai Food? Well, then you deserve this. There are hundreds of street stalls, markets, carts and restaurants that serve amazing Thai dishes here. During night time, Yaowarat or China Town looks as glistening as ever. Not to mention, their superb dishes will utterly satisfy your taste buds.
During my visit, one of the Pad Thai noodles vendor lady told me that Chinatown was the first place in Bangkok to start the trend of street food. Over 200 years ago, Chinatown first came into existence when Bangkok was the major trading hub of South East Asia. My favourite among all the dishes was the oyster omelette. They were not only delicious but as cheap as only 19 baht each.
Silom Road, Bangkok
Silom Road in Bangkok is the ultimate replica of Office Para in Kolkata. You will see a lot of people here in formal clothes. This is a central trading town, as a result, a lot of people flock here to have a quick meal in between their office hours.
Soi Convent and Soi 20 is where I usually went during my stay. It’s a perfect place to gulp down some lip-smacking cheap Thai food.
Nestled amidst the lushful green district of Dusit, Ratchawat is one of the traditional markets of Bangkok. This place has the best collection of restaurants that serve roast duck, Kobe beef noodles and many more. Believe me or not, you will hear all kinds of meat dishes which are extraordinary to taste.
One of my most memorable experiences was tasting the curry shark dish that gave a total blast of multiple flavors in my mouth. Believe me or not, I haven’t really tasted something so heavenly in a while. What I really love about Ratchawat market is street food carts and vendors fill the place, yet one can sense a feeling of solace here.
Bang Khun Non
Bang Khun Non is one of the most exotic street food hubs in Bangkok. This community of Thai Street Food Vendors believes in a special kind of moral behavior and values. They are widely popular for serving the best quality street food in Bangkok. Usually, most streets in Bangkok have a very busy and bustling atmosphere, but this place is pretty different.
You don’t really have to be worried about finding a proper place to stand and eat. One of my favorite dishes from here were Isan dishes, roast duck and Thai Pink Noodles Soup.
Talat Phlu is an old-school street food garden of Eden in Bangkok. This street boasts of having one of the most talented chefs who take pride in serving excellent dishes to customers. A number of street food stalls have received local Thai awards for their dishes.
One of them is the ancient street cart which is so popular that the vendors have decorated it with high plaques and prizes. I personally loved the dish – Steam Tea Bass served with lime juice. You can also try the dish of Morning glory fry and crispy pork which is equally delicious.
Tourists consider Sukhumvit as a sheer oasis amidst the hotshot expensive district of Thong Lo. This means that Sukhumvit serves a lot more considerably cheaper dishes than its surroundings. The streets light up from the evening hours until 2 am at night to serve great dishes, especially for tourists.
I feel this is a perfect place for Indian tourists, as per the kind of dishes they serve. Rice platter with crispy pork and basil, pad thai noodles and Isan style sticky rice with green papaya salad is pretty famous here.
