Khlong Toei wet market

Wet market dreams

What we say: 3.5 stars

Along with piles of fresh chillies in all shapes and sizes and just about every type of fruit Thailand has to offer, the market's tables are awash with innards, scales and scraps. If you ask for a duck to be roasted, expect the vendor to just hand it to you live.

Although the market is a wake up call that the food we eat doesn't spring forth fully formed in plastic wrappers, it is possible to nibble on prepared foods like grilled meats, steamed dumplings and Thai sweets.

While not for the queasy, the market is as good a place as any to get a feel for Thai ingredients. Khlong Toei keeps right on rolling from 02:00 to around 18:00 every day, and the best time to go is early morning when shipments are being received, although it's not a bad place for lunch either.
