Thai Street Food near Central World, Bangkok

If you dare to eat street food then this is one of the places that you must try in Bangkok. The thai street food outside of Central World is popular and infested with both locals and tourists. Take a train (BTS Sukhumvit Line) and alight at Chit Lom station. You will see plenty of 5 star hotels around the area and the popular Erawan Shrine is also located nearby.

Once you've entered Central World mall, look for Isetan. Exit the mall from the main entrance near Isetan. Keep to your left by the main road and you will see 3-4 stalls selling the same food. Take a sit at any one of the stalls or the one with the most customers. But come 8pm, tables will extended to the side of the main road I kid you not!

This is around 7pm. Packed to the brim.

Busy busy chopping up squids and stuff.

This is around 6pm.

Tables on standby.

Traffic building up. This is a main road that never sleeps.

Quench our thirst with a big Singha. Cheers!
White Rice.
Thais love their Morning Glory aka Kangkung aka Water Convolvulus aka Water Spinach.
Grilled Pork Neck.
Tom Yam Goong. Won't have it any other way.
Salt Baked Tilapia.
The aftermath.

All photos are cross processed because the originals came out shitty. I don't own a DSLR or a SLR so it will have to do. Wear light clothing when you're there coz it's pretty humid and hope that it doesn't rain. Seats are tight so if you've just finished shopping, be prepared to put your goodies on the ground.

We paid about 700 baht in total for this. With the current conversion rate, it's about RM72.80 for 2 plus 1 beer. It's quite alright because all the portions are huge. Thank god we are gluttons or else we'll waste a lot of food. And the good news is that I did not suffer from diarrhea. Good sign indeed!
