In Thailand, it is the way to eat. You’ll see everyone and their nan pulling up next to a Thai street food vendor to get themselves a cheap Pad Thai or Chicken and Rice. For us, exploring the street food stands is one of our favourite things to do in Bangkok.
OMG, if you love authentic street food you will love visiting Chinatown in Bangkok. There are hundreds of food stalls, markets, carts, and restaurants. Nighttime is when Yaowarat, as Chinatown is also known, will rock your taste buds.
You’ll find many carts lining the road serving BBQ skewers and Pad Thai. It’s an area that most people end up in when visiting Bangkok as it’s right by Lumphini Park, so make sure you save room for street food when venturing into this area.
We can absolutely affirm that this is a great place to eat the best street food in Bangkok. This was where we ate dinner most nights when we lived in Bangkok, we loved to feast on fish cakes and noodle soup.
