=Travel= Thailand-Bangkok Street food fest @ Sukhumvit Soi 38

Please refer to http://ow.ly/SitsC to get new update about Soi 38.

Sukhumvit Soi 38 is a place similar to New Lane in Penang, where you can find all the local street foods. Since Soi 38 is the entrance to many of the ambassadors’ residence, so the road are wider that offer more space for the street vendors to ply their trade. The most important fact is Soi 38 is located just under a BTS station.

According to my Thai friends, the food here is not the best in town. However, by local standard, the Bangkok best tasting food is far too sour for tourists. So the reason we are here is because of the variety of choices, and the taste here is more tourist friendly.



After searching through the web, Gibson came to a conclusion that there are 3 “must try” foods here, which is the grilled meat, Thai Salad (Som Tam) and Wan Tan Noodles.



Grilled meat, especially grilled pork are practically everywhere in Bangkok. But in Soi 38, you can find seafood and sausages too.



A grilled squid that looks juicy and delicious.



Different parts of the squid are also sold separately.



Mouthwatering grilled sausages.



Not into meat? You can get grilled banana or sweet potato too. They grilled the raw banana that is still sour, and then eat with coconut milk.



Second must try here is Wan Tan Noodles, taste like chicken noodles in Kedah, not the Penang signature dark soya sauce style.



The Wan Tan noodles here can be prepare into many different flavors, even the sour and spicy.



Salt baked fish as named in the menu, one set costs only 280 Baht, about RM32. The chef will “butterfly” the fish when served.



Thai pork leg and roasted pork can be found here as well.



This is Daniel Thaiger food truck. Their burger is very famous, but you need to come early and queue up for at least 20 minutes.

The third must eat here, which is salad which I personally didn’t have a chance to taste, as we were only 2, and we did not have enough space in our bellies. Will have to return someday for a review.



Take BTS to Thong Lo station and take exit 4 to reach Soi 38. Remember to take the correct exit, if not you will end up on the other side of the road.

Address:Sukhumvit Soi 38
Operating Hour:Starting from 5pm

The price list presented here is as on 16th June, the day when I visited the restaurant; when the exchange rate was RM1 to 8.80 baht.
