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.
I promise to write about this for www.agoda.com friends. If you happen to stay in this hotel like I did, and it happen to rain heavily or you happen to feel very tired and don’t feel like moving your ass to anywhere, you should really check out the food at the coffee house below.
I was having a lunch meeting one of the days at the coffee house located at the same lobby of Bangkok City Hotel. Well, it is not a distinctively coffee house but when you approach the staff at the front office, they will get someone to come and take your orders. The menus are not new, and not many varieties, afterall this is a boutique hotel. Hence I ordered what I felt like eating. They have room service as well but I reckon it’s a lot nicer to lunch downstairs and watch tourists go by… 😉
Taste: Put it this way, my Thai counterparts even agreed that the food was good! Wonder who the chef is…. hmmm…
Price: Very reasonable. Suitable for lunch meetings for local Thais.
RTE: If I’m nearby or staying at same hotel again, I definitely would!
I reckon I should write about this awesome place I’ve been to during my last trip to Bangkok. Reason is, this place serves very authentic Thai food dated back to the days where they are being served to the Thai royalties and these dishes are believe to have medicinal effects on our bodies. No wonder most of the Thai girls we see are so slim! Well the attraction of this place is not just the food but also the whole structure. The place is made from traditional Thai teak wood and service staff are all dressed in traditional Thai costumes. So are the utensils and serving plates and bowls. My buddy in Bangkok brought me there for dinner much to my surprise as this place is tucked in some back alleys in Sukhumvit Soi 20 and it’s a really nice little paradise to have authentic Thai food, chat up with your mates, or even a date with that special someone. Check out the pics below:
Taste: Awesome. Must check it out at least once.
Price: Buddy paid but I should think it’s quite reasonable for the quality of the food and ambience.
This is a famous pork noodle place in Bangkok among the locals. One will notice all their branches are all in Thai names and even the menus are in Thai. I remembered my first time visiting this shop at Siam Square about 8 years ago, almost died from the spicyness… At that time a bowl of noodles was only 10baht… now it’s 29baht. But the taste hasn’t change at all, that’s the best thing about that. But before you order, just becareful the chilli levels.
Taste: Love the thick broth in the noodles. Other food equally good and tasty. A place I must visit everytime in Bangkok.
Portion: Portion is a little small for the noodles… I remember I had to eat 2-3 bowls the last time.
Price: See last picture. About SGD$11 only for all that above.
RTE: Hell yeah!
Location: This location is at the ground floor of MBK… in front of the supermarket and cab stand.
