There are some cities in the world that are actually famous for their street food and Bangkok is one of those places. People actually visit the city just so they can try all of the different kinds of street food that there are available. Some people who are doing stopovers in the local Bangkok airport for a few hours, will even make the trip into the city just so they can enjoy some of this excellent cuisine. For those of you who are not familiar with street food, let me reassure you that it is the best available and some of the street stalls have actually won awards for the quality and taste of the food.
If you’re wondering about where to find the best street food in Bangkok, the simple answer is that it is everywhere and it is readily available. If you’re still not sold on the idea of sitting down at a table while traffic passes you by and people as well, then please consider the following reasons why it is something that you really should try on your next vacation.
* It is incredibly affordable – You need to remember that the vast majority of these roadside stalls do not have the massive overheads that normal restaurants would have. This means that the rent is a lot cheaper and maybe they don’t pay anything at all, they don’t have any rates and the only bills that they have is for the little light bulb that they use for their customers comfort. For their cooking, they use gas which is portable and affordable. This means that all of these savings can be passed on to you the consumer and so this makes street food incredibly cheap.
* There is a massive selection – You would not believe the huge selection that you have available to you and as well as Thai food, there is food from all over the globe being prepared in the streets of Bangkok. The hardest decision that you will have to make is what you want to eat for that particular evening and how much of it that you want. They provide soup and seafood starters, your main course and even a nice shaved ice desert to finish. It is the perfect situation to find yourself in with friends and family.
The quality of the food is excellent and the great thing is that the cooking process is not hidden away in some back kitchen. You can actually watch your food being prepared and handled and this gives you the necessary peace of mind about hygiene and food standards.
