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.

Rating: 4.5/5

BANGKOK CITY HOTEL COFFEE HOUSE @ BANGKOK


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… 😉

Lobby Coffee House
Pineapple Fried Rice – Awesome
Fried Kale With Roasted Pork – Apparently a local favourite
Fried Red Chicken Curry – This is a really nice dish.

Rating: 5/5

Taste: Put it this way, my Thai counterparts even agreed that the food was good! Wonder who the chef is…. hmmm…

Portion: Average

Price: Very reasonable. Suitable for lunch meetings for local Thais.

RTE: If I’m nearby or staying at same hotel again, I definitely would!

RUEN-MALLIKA @ BANGKOK, THAILAND


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:

Menu
First up, Chun-Cheu-Boos-Sa-Ba. An assortment of Fried Flowers which is said to aid digestion. This is nice. 🙂
Tod-Mun-Goong. Some prawn mix batter. Taste good! Aids appetitie.
Khao-Tang-Nha-Thung. Traditional rice crackers with shallot and garlic dip. Relieves cold & cough and reduces blood pressure.
This is how you eat it... addictive!
Kor-Moo-Yang. Grilled Pork and if eaten with dip, will aid digestive system, blood circulation and gas in stomach... No wonder that night I was so farty... ;P
Tom-Yum-Goong-Mae-Num. This soup needs no introduction but Tom Yum soups have some medicinal effects on us too! It has high vitamin C, decreases blood sugar and relieves coughs and indigestion.
This is the clear broth version. Just love the big river prawns and the taste!
Gang-Kheaw-Waan-Gai or Pla -Grai... Or Chicken Green Curry. Lovely dish and this dish actually helps in bone strengthening, cures rheumatism and decreases blood pressures.
Nam-Prik-Khai-Poo. Salad base dish but the main thing is the dip. Very healthy dish. Promotes appetitite and healthy skin, relieves coiughs and promotes a healthy heart.
Wonder how long they spend carving this... hmmm

Rating: 5/5.

Taste: Awesome. Must check it out at least once.

Portion: Average

Price: Buddy paid but I should think it’s quite reasonable for the quality of the food and ambience.

RTE: Yuppers!

THA-SIAM NOODLE BRANCH @ BANGKOK, THAILAND


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.

Outside the shop... very not halal lah...
Kitchen counter which looks like a ship...
Deco with ancient Thai paintings
The famous Pork Noodles... awesome...
Very nice and crispy wings
Vermicelli salad yum woon sen
Fried Bee Hoon with Pork Chop... This is a must try too... Love it!
The ingredients in the noodles...

Rating: 5/5.

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.
