Streetfood: Wang Lang Market

Great snacking spot

What we say: 3.5 stars

Located at a busy cross-river and express boat ferry pier, and right next to a large hospital complex, the Wang Lang Market is a great opportunity to snack your way to satiety.

Getting here is easy as both cross-river ferries and the Chao Phraya Express boats stop here. Come off the pier and you're in the market. It stretches up Phran Nok for at least 300 metres, and melts back into the tiny alleys behind. Have a wander around first and then make a plan of attack.

Sweets and little snacks are plentiful, like kanom krok (tiny thai cupcakes baked in a hot metal mold) or kanom buang maprow (crispy wafers filled with meringue and sweet coconut filling or salty dried shrimp filling- they look like tiny tacos, and both are delightful).

There is excellent roasted pork served at several places immediately to the left of the ferry pier, and southern food is common throughout this market. Once you've reached your street food limit (never, is the answer of the truly dedicated), tons of vendors gather at the centre of Wang Lang selling retro (or faux-retro) clothes, very cook kicks, very-used-yet-real Chanel bags.

Stuff your face, then clothe your back. Go on, you deserve it.
