Streetfood: Soi Rangnam

Take a slow, munching stroll

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 4.5 stars

This short road feeds office workers their morning sweets and coffee, serves up dish after bowl after skewer of lunchtime fare and continues to sizzle as the sun goes down.

Starting from the western end of the road (closest to the BTS station) and working your way all the way to Ratchaprarop Rd, this is a great street food find. Right on the side of the mall and all the way up the north side of Rangnam there are great fruit, grilled meat, fermented isaan sausage (sai-grok), and fried chicken (heavenly, barbarously good fried chicken).

In the afternoon and early evening the goong ten (dancing shrimp) vendor makes a mean version of this salad of live, freshwater shrimp — look for his over-the-shoulder pole-and-basket combo if you want to try it (it's actually really delicious). Further up, past the King Power complex, the action switches to the south side of the road, with noodle carts, ladna stands, and hot pot options springing up every evening in front of the Tesco Lotus Express.

On the opposite side of the street, Isaan food and lots of baame soup tempts. All the way up at the junction with Rangnam is Club Esso Isaan (not it's real name) that turns the corner of a petrol station forecourt into an amazing Isaan restaurant- it's worth a slow, munching stroll up and down this street, with several Thai-style bars offering libations and rest for the road weary.
