Street Food in Bangkok

Unless you're a street food phobic, the stuff is unavoidable in Bangkok, but for good reason. Street food is everywhere, quite varied and cheap as well as delicious! This post isn't meant to be a comprehensive listing or guide to what's available - Nomadic Matt has written a great post for that - but it does show a few of the things we saw and tried out.

For snacks, it wasn't surprising to come across a box of spices to go with some cut pieces of green mango and other fruit. Being a fan of pickles, seeing the stuff makes my mouth water!

We saw a vendor adding different colour sauces directly into small loaves of bread. Not sure whether it was sweet, sour, or spicy and whether it was eaten on its own or with other dishes.

In a similar vein, one guy served ice-cream in the same mini-loaves of bread, together with a choice of small, exotic fruit pieces.

Grilled meat is probably the most tourist-friendly item around when you're hungry.

For a more fulfilling offering, there were lots of vendors willing to make up a pad thai or papaya salad for a few more baht.

A favourite of Linh's to round off a day of exploring was a portion of mango sticky rice.

Chocolate isn't the way to do street food in Bangkok. Especially not the plastic kind.
