Thai street food in Bangkok, a feast for your taste buds and eyes

Among Bangkok places to visit, alongside its colorful and picturesque open markets, also the streets of Thailand‘s capital are clothed with Thai street food stalls of any kind. From fish to meat to fruits to juices, in Bangkok’s streets you can find literally everything until late night, which is a good thing given that after 7 pm we struggled to find open restaurants.

Like for open markets, I also enjoyed taking pictures of the incredibly diverse Thai street food.

Here is a small selection of my favorite shots. I hope you like them and that they will give you a hint of how mouthwatering the streets of Bangkok look from morning to night.

These sort of meatballs were all over the place in China too. I don’t really like them, but given their popularity on Thai street food stalls, they must be really appreciated.

Frying is a highly common practice in Thai street food

Again olives and fruit, an unlikely combination, but very popular

Thankfully, Bangkok weather is lovely all year round, so street food stalls and open markets of any type are always available and easy to find all around the city. In Thailand I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all street food I could find as it was actually prepared food, not packaged one, so overall healthy and very tasty. No wonder why this is a real tourist draw and always mentioned as one of the best things to do in Bangkok.

Now, these I’m not sure what they were, I think still sweets, but I haven’t tried them, I couldn’t try everything in one morning…

  1. Suddenly I’m hungry :)
    That fish stall in particular looks awesome.

  2. Una sfilza di cose deliziose, almeno a vederle!

  3. ça a l’air bon!

  4. The one you couldn’t name looks like ‘mee krob’ a crispy noodle used in soups. Hope that helps!

  5. Looks very delicions, even from the photos. Hope I can visit Bangkok one day, and try all of them! :D

  6. 65 Baht for a pineapple? Wow, they’ve got expensive since I was last there! Or maybe they’re just dearer around the tourist areas. In fairness, when I first went, it was also closer to 90 Baht to the pound, not the current 45-ish.

  7. Hey Angela, I love your photos! The street food looks so delicious and colourful. I’m heading to Bangkok next week and can’t wait to see Chatuchak Market – I’m dying to get my fill of mango sticky rice, sugarcane drink and fish cakes :)
