Bangkok's finest street food

Posted by comtam3000 on 23/8/2014 at 04:12

When I was in Chiang Mai I ate kao kaa moo served by this lady in a cowboy hat. It was easily the tastiest I've ever had, and apparently that was no coincidence. From what I understand, the green/white bowl on her sign signifies that her stall is one of the city's more distinguished. Last time I was in Bangkok I spotted another street food stall with the same award on their sign, and the dish they served was delicious. Does anyone know what this award is called and how I can find out more about the recipients of it? I'm heading to Bangkok in 2 weeks and I'd like to make myself a street food bucket list. I'd appreciate your help!

Happy eating.

Yes, Bravo to Mark Weins. Beautiful work.

He has done for Bangkok what Chanchao did for Chiang Mai. Mark has some info on CM too.

I kid, to tell you the truth one of my thai favorites is kao kaa moo, the dish that I mentioned in post #1. Stewed pork leg with rice, cabbage, a hardboiled egg if you'd like. Best topped with the fresh garlic and some of the red chili vinegar sauce that they'll serve alongside it. It's a pretty mild dish if you've got a sensitive stomach!

Also moo ping (barbecued pork skewers) and sticky rice is a must. The fried chicken in Thailand is smackin too. Both of these will be most delicious as street foods!

Another classic and delicious one that comes to mind is kao moo kob/moo dang (rice with crispy pork/red pork). Look in the street food stalls for the red strips of pork and large chunks of crispy meaty pork, they' commonly serve these meats in soup or on rice, both of which should be ok on the tummy unless the soup is tom yam!
