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.

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!
