Personally this is my favourite street food in Bangkok. When the Banana and the Condense milk melt in your mouth, that taste is perfect! If you’re not a fan of condense milk, you can have other choices like honey and chocolate.

This grilled salt-coated fish is Awesome and you have to try unless you dislike the taste of salt. This fish is very popular among the locals because it’s cheap and the size is just enough for everyone in the family.  The meat is very fresh just like those you just caught and grill straight away.

This thin and crispy pancake will satisfy your snack craving. They have different toppings to choose from as well, like shredded coconut, chopped scallions or fried eggs / egg yolks. khanom buang are actually a traditional dessert. The shells are made on a hot cast-iron griddle pan like crepes and end up tasting like a fresh fortune cookie.

Sticky (glutinous) rice is flavoured with coconut milk, sugar and salt before it is steamed in pandan leaves. Comes with fresh, ripe mango and sprinkles of toasted mung beans. These days Khao Niao Mamuang is better found in Bangkok’s street food vendors. The mango sticky rice pictured was bought in Chatuchak and cost 70 baht.

These Otah (cake made of fish meat paste)  are very different from Singapore’s small and expensive ones. They are cook in Pandan leaves added with coconut paste with chilli. You may be wondering if this taste weird, but definitely it’s so good that you will want to bring some back to home-town. 

Where to get: this is a little more difficult to find, I have seen these at Pratunam and MBK

#9 Quail Eggs

These Quail eggs are really small and cheap, they are 20 Batt or lesser ( $1 lesser )  If you are very concern about your cholesterol level intake, then this will not be a good choice. They cook these in nice iron pan to keep it round in shape. It’s very simple yet tasty.

#10 The Insect Feast

Eating fried insects in Bangkok appears on the priority list of most daring travelers, something you should try at least once and take a photo so you can proudly exhibit it once back home. This only goes for the brave ones, the cowardly ones just want a photo of the little crawlers… to such an extent that some insect vendors started to charge 10 baht just for the right to take a picture. In a way, you have to put yourself in their shoes: they are running a restaurant here, not a Ripley’s-Believe-It-or-Not shack!

Where to Get: Mainly found in Khao San Road
