Bangkok is a food paradise, where you can find local food almost everywhere. On the road side, hawkers pulling their carts or motorbikes, selling their food to walking patrons. We did not dare to try much of the food because of hygiene, if you get what I mean. The dust from the vehicles etc.
But we did ate wanton noodles and kuaw chap from few food carts. Sometimes the nicer food can be found from those food carts than those restaurants and café.
Enjoying my duck noodle
Duck noodle -their noodle is like mee suah
Stewed duck noodle - this one is like silky kuaw tiaw
I had one duck noodle in Pratunam, very tasty. 5-spiced duck meat with mee suah-like noodle. Its stewed duck noodle also not bad.
Chunchy roasted pork noodle soup
I love Thai egg noodles especially the one that they served with roasted pork belly. Simply delicious. Hubby had few bowls of this noodles there. But hard to find egg noodles as I believe Thais like mee hoon and kuaw tiaw more. Or it is not so?
But if you want Pad Thai (those flat egg noodles served with peanuts and seafood), restaurants are definitely your option. We had one Pad Thai in one of the restaurants opposite Berkeley Hotel Pratunam on the 2nd night.
My first time eating Pad Thai
I ate a lot of Tom Yam Kung in Thailand. Think I missed them the most!
One thing about Thailand eating places and even the food stalls at the street side, they are pretty clean. The toilet hygiene is better than Malaysia's, sorry to say this. So far, the places we have been to in Bangkok and Pattaya, they were clean. The street side stalls have dustbin for you to throw your cigarette butts and rubbish.
And what I missed about Pattaya? Its beach, coconuts and bbq squids with small sized cucumber and spicy and sweet sauces dip. Just THB150!! Very fresh.
