The Foodie’s Guide to Bangkok Street Food

Dive into the deliciousness that is Bangkok street food during your stay at W Bangkok.

Start at the hotel’s very own The Kitchen Table for a modern take on heritage Thai and international cooking, or choose the ultimate indulgence at The Dining Room at The House on Sathorn for an unforgettable culinary extravaganza centered around Thai favorites.

Then explore Bangkok street food where you best find it – the streets.

Yaowarat Road

Yaowarat road or Bangkok's China Town is a haven for foodies, with endless food stalls dotting both sides of the street. Treat your taste buds to the burst of spicy, sour and sweet of the Pad Kee Mow, stir-fried noodles with basil leaves before washing it down with a fresh juice from the nearby vendor. If you have a big appetite, continue with the Massaman Curry, with succulent lamb in gravy, or the famous Thai Chicken Rice. While it shares the name of its Singaporean counterpart, the Thai Chicken Rice lends itself to a more adventurous palate, with a mix of fried chicken strips, chili and soy sauce. Don’t forget to end your foodie adventure with the best dessert in Thai cuisine, the coveted Mango Sticky Rice.

Charoen Krung

Another foodie temptress is Charoen Krung. There are many stalls whose street food will give your taste buds a new thrill. Som Tam, the fresh green papaya salad will refresh your palate, while Moo Ping, the pork satays will see you savoring every bite of pork with the accompanying sauce. Vegetarians will also find their Thai food haven here, as the street food vendors happily whip up their vegetable versions of Thai fried rice and red or green curry. 

Thip Samai

Of all the dishes to try in Bangkok, none come more highly recommended than the coveted Pad Thai. Complete with shrimp, beansprouts, peanuts and chili powder, these noodles have propelled Thai cuisine to become one of the best cuisines in the world. And there is no better place to try the most authentic Pad Thai than at Thip Samai. Here, Pad Thai is served in an egg cocoon, enhancing the delicious flavors with every bite.
