Are you a fan of street food, who loves trying various foods from stall to stall?
If yes, I would like to recommend you to go to Sukhumvit Soi38 when visiting Bangkok.
If no, I also recommend you to try street food there. Not just because it is cheap and delicious, but because the stall sellers there usually have an English menu for you, and try to speak English with you.
Street food at Sukhumvit Soi 38 is not a place for tourist only. You will see that many local also have dinner there. Street food there is not that big; it is like a small version of the street food at China town, the most popular place for street food in Bangkok.
Last night I went there to have dinner with my friend. Since this street was not long and there are many food stalls, we decided to walk until the end of the street before choosing what we wanted to eat.
Finally, we first choose to eat noodle. This egg noodle with roasted red pork, crispy pork, and crab meat was really awesome. It costed 60 baht for the noodle and 25 baht for the smoothie.
We then move to the next stall to have satay which costed 50 baht.
Then, move to the next stall for the dessert. The coconut ice cream (on the left) costed 30 baht and the stuffed water chestnut in syrup and coconut milk served with crushed ice costed 25 baht.
If you have never tried mango with sticky rice before, you can try it here as a dessert.
In total, this meal was about 140 baht. Cheap, wasn’t it?
