Photo: Streetside curry near Khao San Road

Easily one of the cheapest ways to eat in Bangkok, and in Thailand for that matter, is to pull up a chair at a streetside food stall selling ready-made Thai food served either on a plate, or in little plastic bags for takeaway. While you’ll find all manner of Thai food served in this fashion, as in the photo below, Thai curry often takes centreplace.

Unless the vendor is smack bang in the middle of Khao San Road, most customers will be Thai, which means the taste — and the chilli quota — shouldn’t be watered down for a foreign palate. The stall above is just a five-minute walk from Khao San Road on Rambuttri and when I ordered a plate of the green curry, the vendor warned me that it wasn’t “farang-friendly”. He was right, but that was exactly what I wanted.
