Street food in Thailand brings together various offerings of ready-to-eat meals, snacks, fruits and drinks sold by hawkers or vendors at food stalls or food carts on the street side in Thailand. Sampling Thai street food is a popular activity for visitors, as it offers a taste of Thai cooking traditions. Bangkok is often mentioned as one of the best place for street food. In 2012, VirtualTourist named Bangkok as the number one spot for street food—the city is notable for both its variety of offerings and the abundance of street hawkers.
There are many areas in Bangkok that are famous for as a street food center such as Yaowarat and nearby area (Talat Noi, Wat Traimit and Chaloem Buri), Nang Loeng, Sam Phraeng, Pratu Phi, Bang Lamphu, Yotse, Sam Yan, Tha Din Daeng, Wongwian Yai, Wang Lang, Talat Phlu etc.
How good is the street food in Thailand?
This question sounds redundant at first since we’ve already established that Thailand is synonymous with the best street food. But HOW good is it really? I use this clever transition to tell you about Jay Fai, the Queen of Thai Street Food. This lovely 72-year old lady is the first person to be awarded the sought-after Michelin star for her – you guessed it – phenomenal street food. Particularly her crab omelet is famous.
This should give you an indication of how good this type of food can be. It goes to show that just because something is being cooked in a small space, doesn’t mean it has to be bad or inferior to a restaurant in terms of quality.
Just like Jay Fai, many of the street hawkers have been specializing in only a few selected dishes. After honing their craft for decades, they now manage to create near-perfect meals. It is therefore completely irrelevant whether they cook in the sidecar of their scooter or in a fancy kitchen.
