Street Food in Bangkok

Bangkok’s Amazing Street Food: Moving Indoors?

Thailand has arguably the best street food culture in the world. Food is omnipresent, stalls on wheels are parked on almost every street, at intersections, and deep inside Bangkok’s alleys. The food always looks appetizing, tastes great, and is still very, very affordable, especially for Europeans and Americans.

A “trend” I’ve noticed during our visit to Bangkok is how more often I see street food stalls inside even the fanciest of the capital’s shopping malls.

The above image was captured at the ICON SIAM earlier today. Some would say that street food is a lot easier to appreciate in an air-conditioned food court. To me, eating street food is something I totally connect with visits to Asia in my younger years – when eating a leg or two of bbq fried chicken on the sidewalk was the ultimate way to round off a whirlwind, Mekong-fueled night in Bangkok.
