Street Food in Bangkok

It’s no secret that the best food in Bangkok is on the street. That might sound strange, because a lot of people seem to associate street food with ignorant tourists (ever eat a lamb kebab in Hong Kong at 2 in the morning? Such a bad idea) or drunks fending off nausea after a bout of binge drinking (see above), or diarrhea.
But street food here is better than that: it’s cheap (most of the time – more on that later), quick (again, most of the time), a showcase for Thai entrepreneurial spirit, and yummy. Juicy skewers of pork with peanut sauce; fried pad thai noodles with chives and banana blossom; egg noodles in minced pork broth, garnished with a feathery-light won ton and slivers of just-cooked egg – these dishes are all just minutes away, on nearly every street corner, and at least as good as anything you would find in a restaurant outside of Thailand.
So, feeling hungry yet? Want to eat?

    Love it! We’d like to come visit you at some point in the next 5 years. I haven’t seen you since Bobby Brown and Debbie Gibson were holding down the music charts. Good Lord.
