Street food in Bangkok is a melting pot of culture. It brings people together, it celebrates history and is part of showcasing some of the tastiest food each respective country has to offer. There is something magical about walking down a narrow street.
Smelling a rich broth cooked by a converted bicycle and being served a heart warming noodle soup whilst sitting on a tiny chair, watching the world go by. You could live in a city like Bangkok for years and still be surprised by a tiny woman cooking Thai food on a corner you have never seen before.
Street food in Bangkok is such a big part of why so many flock to the city every year. And our way to celebrate it is to highlight our top picks. We spent a long time going to every soi, district, and corner house to bring you our top picks for 2020. With special mention to Gary Butler, the Roaming Cook who helped us create this list and took much of the photography.
The city of Bangkok and its street food chefs are spread out wide across the Thai capital. Because of this we have only focussed on a few select areas. Alongside a few profiles we will also give advice on how to get to each place and what to order.
The fact the street food is so versatile and robust as a category meant it was hard to pick and choose our favourites! We chose our venues for there role in the community, popularity and also the way the food has impacted on culture.
Bangkok is certainly one of those cities you could live in all your life and still discover new hidden gems. We spent a long time wandering every Soi, exploring every corner and also asking the locals about the best street food in bustling Bangkok.
