From the Book : Street Food in Bangkok

It’s hard to find a square inch of a sidewalk in Bangkok that doesn’t have a street stall of some kind. Street food is a way of life here, especially late at night. Pull up a plastic stool and choose from an array of noodles, meat, and vegetarian dishes. Save space for delicious fruits and sweet desserts.

Where to Eat :
Chinatown; Nang Loeng Market (Nakhorn Sawan Road); the side streets around the backpackers’ haven of Khao San Road; the Saochingcha neighborhood (near Bangkok City Hall); Soi Rambutri across from the Viengtai Hotel (known as Pad Thai Alley); and Aw Taw Kaw, across the Expressway from Chatuchak (or JJ) weekend market.

How Much :
For around $3, you can enjoy two or three courses of Bangkok’s finest.
