Bangkok hosts one of the world’s most interesting street food scenes. Bangkok street food has something to offer for everyone. You can get almost everything they serve in restaurants, on Bangkok streets as well! And prices can get dirt cheap. Below you’ll find a list of my favourite Bangkok street food vendors and their most delicious dishes. You really can’t go wrong with any of them.


 

Spicy Thai Shrimp Salad at Tom Yum Goong Banglamphu (200 THB)


Tom Yum Goong Banglamphu is my favourite street food restaurant in Bangkok. As the name suggests, this street food vendor is specialized in “tom yum”. However, I like their other seafood preparations even more! My favourite is their spicy Thai shrimp salad (pla goong) a flavourful salad prepared with lots of herbs, veggies and chillies, and fresh jumbo prawns!
Why Tom Yum Goong Banglamphu is 
my favourite Bangkok street food restaurant? The food here is incredibly fresh and delicious, and the prices won’t break your bank. I really don’t know any other place in Bangkok where you can get food this good, for prices this low.

Roasted Prawns with Glass Noodles at Somsak Pu Ob (290 THB)


Just thinking about having a delicious pan of roasted prawns with glass noodles (goong ob woon sen) at Somsak Pu Ob makes my mouth water. This street food restaurant is located outside of Bangkok’s city centre and is known for serving Bangkok’s tastiest goong ob woon sen. The glass noodles, prawns, seasoning and soy sauce are all tossed in a pan and sizzled together above hot blue flames. Mix everything together, and get yourself ready for having the meal of your life! You can also order your pan with crab (310 THB) and roe crab (450 THB). A more detailed review can be found in this article about Somsak Pu Ob.

Stir-Fried Spicy Chili Sauce with Crab and Vegetables at Nhong Rim Klong (440 THB)


Even the canal next to this Bangkok street food restaurant is smelly. The seafood served here is of high quality (and so are the prices). At first sight, Nhong Rim Klong doesn’t look like you’re going to have the meal of your life. But after sampling one of their delicious seafood preparations, you will understand what all the fuzz is about around this popular Bangkok street food restaurant. My favourite dish is their stir-fried spicy chili sauce with crab and vegetables, OR drunken stir-fry. The stir-fry mix is incredibly flavourful due to the variety of herbs and veggies and goes really well with the large chunks of crab meat.

Khao Moo Grob Goon Chiang at Nakhon Sanook (60 THB)


This is my favourite spot to go in Bangkok for my hit of khao moo grob. This Bangkok street food vendor is located in a small alley off Luang Road and has been honing their khao moo daeng moo grob skills since the 1940s when the grandfather of the current owner started serving this tasty pork and rice dish. The crispy pork (moo grob) is better than at other vendors, but where Nakhon Sanook really stands out is their heavenly good homemade Chinese siu haau sauce. The sauce makes or breaks your plate of khao moo grob, and at Nakhon Sanook you can’t go wrong as it’s the best in Bangkok! Don’t forget to add some sweet Chinese sausage to your plate as well. A more detailed review can be found in this article about Nakhon Sanook.

Mango Sticky Rice at Je Meaw Sukhumvit Soi 38 (80 THB)


Sukhumvit Soi 38 is home to a small street food market, which offers a variety of mostly Thai cuisine. One of the most popular shops at this market is Je Meaw, a well-known mango sticky rice vendor. The portions served at Je Meaw are generous and budget-friendly (from 80 THB). The sticky rice is sweet here and served with lots of salty coconut cream and crispy mung beans. The mangoes are sweet and juicy, just like they supposed to be. Overall one of the better mango sticky rice in “the big mango”, and a noteworthy mention for Bangkok street food.

Pad Thai with Big Prawns at Pad Thai Narok Taek (70 THB)


This newcomer to Bangkok’s pad Thai scene quickly gained a good reputation for serving killer pad Thais. Although this Bangkok street food vendor is located outside of Bangkok’scitycentre, you won’t be disappointed after sampling. The stir-fried charcoal-flavoured noodles are a real treat. The Pad Thai is a bit sour, due to the use of tamarind and the prawns are big, juicy and more than you expect to get for just 70 THB. Overall the best street food pad Thai you can get in Bangkok.

Spicy Minced Duck at Larb Bpet Yasothon (70 THB)


Larb Bpet Yasothon is a Bangkok street food restaurant located in Silom Soi 9. Calling it “street food” might be an understatement, as the street food establishment is quite large and can seat up to around 40 people. But still, due to its popularity, even these tables will fill up on Tuesday till Saturday evenings. As the name suggests, Larb Bpet Yasothon is specialized in “larb”: a Thai-Lao minced meat salad. This is exactly what you should order here. Typically larb is made with pork, however, at Larb Bpet Yasothon they prepare it with “Bpet” which is duck. The minced duck has lots of flavour, more than other larb’s I’ve tried!

Red Tofu Spicy Soup with Seafoods at Tee’s Yen-Ta-Fo (200 THB)


Look at that picture… Who doesn’t want to try that? Tee’s Yen-Ta-Fo is a famous Bangkok street food restaurant located on Maha Chai Road close to other food legends Pad Thai Thip Samai and Jay Fai. This street food restaurant is specialized in yen ta fo, a sweet-sour and spicy pink soup which got its pink colour due to the use of fermented soybean paste. And at Tee’s Yen-Ta-Fo they add some fresh seafood’s to this flavourful soup to make it even more special. Tee’s Yen-Ta-Fo is our favourite street food noodle vendor in Bangkok.

Spare Ribs with Honey Mexican Sauce at Cook Chom Restaurant (110 THB)


The only street food restaurant in Bangkok on this list that doesn’t serve Thai food. Cook Chom Restaurant is quite unique. The owner was a former chef at a fancy 5-star hotel. And he had a vision, to open a street food restaurant which cooks quality European classics, Cook Cham was born. To be honest, the food is far from what you can get in a fine dining restaurant in Bangkok. However, the experience of having international cuisine on the streets of Bangkok is quite fun. My favourite is the spare ribs with honey Mexican sauce. The ribs are deliciously tender, and the flavourful sweet-spicy sauce accommodates the meat well. All in all, a fun well-priced and unique experience.
