Best Thai Street Food

An attraction in its own right, Thai food has won the hearts and stomachs of many visitors. With a reputation as the world’s kitchen, trying the local food when you’re here is a must! Make the most of every trip to Bangkok by sampling the best Thai street food available. Let this guide inspire you to try new treats, especially around the famed Banglamphu neighborhood. With its central location in Bangkok Old Town, ibis Styles Bangkok Khaosan Viengtai is full of foodie hotspots.

Basic Foodie tips

  • Looking for a street food fix? Remember that Monday is the worst day for that. Things are quiet due to street cleanings from the city administration. Most stalls are closed; with some that are still open.
  • Wondering if your stall or shop of choice is any good? Follow this simple rule of thumb: If there’s a queue of locals, it most likely will be.
  • Beware the spice levels! If you’re not a fan of chilis, remember to say “no chilis” and “not spicy”

Neighborhood bites

Step out from the hotel lobby and start on your very own journey to discover the best Thai street food. Fruit stalls offer freshly cut fruit of your desire, but more substantial fare beckons. Some local gems are mere steps away!

  • Asheeyah Roddee: Authentic Halal food tucked away in the Banglamphu neighborhood! Try the chicken biryani, beef satay and spicy chicken soup.
  • Nai Meng Noodles: Our choice for the best “pink noodle” yentafo soup at pocket-friendly prices. Tip: Order extra fish balls!
  • Tom Yum Goong: Let the snaking queues of local office-workers be the guarantee of the deliciousness! A seafood tom yum that’s worth the wait.
  • Patonggo Café: Look out for the oversized “Pantonggo” or Chinese cruller mascots in front of the shop. Highlighted in the Michelin Guide, enjoy savory or sweet dishes in a retro setting.

The famous destinations

A true foodie paradise has to be Yaowarat (Chinatown). Delicious food from roadside stalls and tucked away shops are always available, but it truly comes alive once the sun sets.

Some highlights:

  • Grilled seafood (T&K Seafood)
  • Thai ‘guay jap’ noodles
  • Roasted chestnuts
  • Toasted bread with gooey filling and more.

Just nearby is Pahurat (Little India), which offers authentic Indian fare.

Another choice for weekend explorers is the Or Tor Kor market. Adjacent to the famous Chatuchak weekend market, this large wet market offers everything from fresh fish, meat to fruits and Thai desserts. Browse the orderly stalls and make your pick, or just dine at the attached food court. Our tip? The som tum papaya salad and fried chicken with sticky rice, followed by the famous Thai dessert shop. Be sure to wash it all down with a refreshing Thai herbal drink or fruit juice.

A city full of food

This is just scratching the surface! Keep an eye out for the latest pop-up markets or food crazes as you search for the best Thai street food. Food will always be everywhere, because Bangkokians just love their food! When you stay at ibis Bangkok hotel, you’ll always have a comfy bed to sleep off that food coma.
