Street Food at Bangrak (บางรัก)

Street Food at Bangrak (บางรัก)

Bangkok is sometimes known as the foodie capital of the world and with good reason; the local restaurants and stalls have quality food of course, but that’s not the only reason why. It’s the abundance, variety and value that makes Bangkok the number one destination for food. The street food in Bangkok is everywhere, easy to find and cheap.

The street food at Bangrak is no exception, with locals and foreigners alike praising how good it is. Some of these recipes have been kept a secret and passed down generation to generation, and there are many restaurants here that have been in business for decades. If you ever find yourself wandering down Charoenkrung Road, lost and unsure of what to eat, look for the restaurants with old-style décor and newspaper clippings lining the walls. Additionally, if it is packed with locals, chances are the food is good and while you might have to wait awhile before getting a seat, it will be worth it. Some of the best restaurants are also ‘hole in the wall’ shops such as Home Cuisine Islamic Restaurant, famous for its mutton biriyani, or Prachak, which will have locals lining up for a taste of the roasted duck. Prachak has been famous since the turn of the 20th century, and the duck always runs out before closing time at 8pm. If you want to satisfy your sweet cravings, Boonsap Thai Desserts, which used to be a street vendor, but is now a restaurant with air conditioning, still serves some of the best mango sticky rice (Khao niew mamuang) you can find here in Bangkok.

If you do not like the street food, then there are some other restaurants such as the Sala Rim Nam which is on the bank of the river Chao Phraya which serves good food to go with such a nice riverside setting.

With the area being close to Pahurat, or Little India as it’s sometimes known, there is a wide variety of South Asian and Muslim cuisine on offer as well.
