Street Food @ Petchburi Soi 10, Bangkok, Thailand


Well I know there are a lot of street food in Bangkok but since I was staying near this street, I might as well write about the good and cheap food I had for the past few days I was there. I heard this street can be quite happening for good supper during the weekends. But I must warn my readers that I have a seasoned stomach train in Thailand and China, so when buying street food, please observe how they cook their food and check if the food itself is fresh, especially seafood. My comments for the food are in the pics.

Petchburi Soi 10
There’s a wet market here as well selling lots of local fruits!
This Thai-Chinese shop selling loads of local snacks and side dishes. See next photo.
From the Thai-Chinese snack stall – Rice dumpling, Thai fish cake, and fried chicken. The chicken would be nice if hot from the wok. Rice dumpling and fish cake were really good. Forgot how much but damn cheap.
Thai Fish Cakes. Lovely side dish to go with your rice.
The rice dumpling was full of ingredients and really nice.

 

BBQ Chicken – I’ve always wanted to try this. They pasted ‘CP Chicken’ sticker on the stall hence I reckon it’s safe to eat.
Choose your chicken carefully cos some sticks have chicken neck or boney parts. But the taste is really good.
Taste awesome but cannot eat too often cos BBQ stuff.
Thai Sausage – What is street food without thai sausage! This stall looks pretty good so I decided to try it.
Looks really good right? I was told that this sausage was originated from Laos. Hence it prolly came through the North Eastern part of Thailand, Udon Thani. Taste is fragrant and savoury. But it comes with a little sour taste. Try it, it’s really not bad!
I was wondering what this stall was until I came close and realized it’s a drink stall. This is where you can get your Thai milk teas or very good ice coffees. But what is that big pot of white stuff?
Found out this big pot of white stuff is actually hot fresh milk! Thais love to drink this with sugar. I tried, very nice and milky. You can choose to have it iced as well.
Ice Coffee made to perfection with less sugar.

 

Noodles! – Another stall must try is this stall that sells won ton noodles. Handed down by the lady’s mother and has been there for decades. I was told that they operate 24hrs. When this shop is close for the night, her sister will be selling by the side from 10pm till the next morning. And she speaks Teochew!
I asked for a big packet of noodles with double portion of noodles and extra ingredients. Really nice for just 60 bahts.

海外天鱼翅酒店 @ BANGKOK, THAILAND


Told myself I need to feature this place after my last trip to Bangkok in Jan. (Yes I’ve got loads of backlogs… sigh) I’ve been patronising this shop since the year 2000, from the time I was savaging sharks fin soup then to the current fish maw soup. It serves very very authentic Chinese Thai seafood cuisine and the fire control is so good, it makes the dishes taste like they have been glazed over the fire before they are being served.

It is started by the old aunty who sits behind the cashier counter and now her family is helping in the whole restaurant. She is also a Teochew and when you step into this restaurant, you can speak almost anything with them from English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Burmese, Teochew and Thai of course. Check out the pics below:

Signboard in Thai...
Many HK magazine reviews... that explains why so many HKgers frequent this place when in Bangkok.
The Chrysenthemum drink is very nice and free flow... love it...
My favourite Fish Maw Soup... Thick and tasty!
Oyster Omelette
Awesome Claypot Vermicelli with River Prawns
Fried Kang Kong... They call this Morning Glory... but quite nice although not sambal.
This is a must try... Salted fish fried rice... after trying this, you will not eat SG ones anymore...
Love this chilli dip sauce... great with the vermicelli and whatever...
Old Aunty and me... She recognises me all the time since my 2nd visit... Feel the warmth when I chat with her...
Stairs to 2nd floor if ground floor is filled.

Rating: 5/5.

Taste: I can’t describe anymore. Just go try it when in Bangkok. Try the steam cod fish also, very nice and fresh. You can wash it down with cold bird’s nest also. 🙂

Portion: Average.

Price: The whole meal came up to about slightly less than Baht$1000 which was about SGD$44 for 2-3 pax. Very affordable good food.

RTE: Everytime in Bangkok!
