The ETLR (Eat, Travel, Live & REPEAT) Bangkok Food Trail

Every city which becomes a popular tourist spot has a unique character to it. And the city of Bangkok in the kingdom of Thailand, which has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in South East Asia is popular for its Street Food Culture. That is one of the primary reason why any trip to Bangkok is incomplete without The Bangkok Food Trail.

After months of planning, when we finally decided to head out to Bangkok in the month of October 2016 and also celebrate my parents 25th Anniversary, my excitement knew no bounds. And thus started the period of excessive research about things to do but more importantly things to eat. Even before departing, I had already decided, that come what may, I am going to do The Bangkok Food Trail .

Soon the D day arrived, and we boarded our Thai Aiways flight from Mumbai to Bangkok. In a matter of another 6 hours, we landed, got our Visas and soon checked into Mac Boutique and Suites, in the Sukhumvit area.

We soon headed out to Chatuchak weekend market, and thus began my epic Bangkok Food Trail.

 

Roti Banana Pancake - ETLR Bangkok Food Trail

Had seen this particular dish in many Bangkok street food videos and was very fascinated with the making of it. And I knew it that I wanted to add it to my Bangkok Food Trail.

So when I stumbled across this stall during a late night stroll in the streets of Sukhumvit, I ordered one and stood glued there watching the vendor make it. It was a delight to watch and a delight to eat as well.

PS : Its a sweet sin and becomes heavy for 1 person. Its better to share it to enjoy the taste and the dish.

Tom Yum Soup

The famous Tom Yum soup, is a spicy broth with a concoction of see food and spices . And It is definitely a must have during your Bangkok Food Trail. Though you will find various iterations to this soup, throughout Bangkok, the one I liked the most was in a restaurant near Wat Pho.

The MBK mall in Bangkok is no doubt a shoppers paradise,but it is also a foodies delight and definitely one of the best places to try out all different kind of food items for the Bangkok Food Trail.

The best thing I liked was that the rates of the dishes were at par with the street rates.

It was indeed a wonderful experience to see such a variety of Bangkok specialties under 1 roof. This time I Tried the Thai green which was just yummy and the quantity was more than generous. Definitely worth the 50 baht spent.

Any food trail in Bangkok is incomplete without trying out the famous Pad Thai noodles.Though I had tried Pad Thai noodles from a couple of places but I liked the one I had on the street near Indira Square in Bangkok.

    Without a doubt Thailand is known for it’s beautiful food, full of flavor with many dishes being light and not make you feel like you are overly full. Just satisfied and content having enjoyed their wonderful cuisine. Food and the culture is a fantastic part of traveling and I have loved every dish I tried in Thailand and will certainly be back for more in the future! This post makes me want to hurry up booking that next trip!

    Ahhh I am so mad at myself seeing this post. I was in Bangkok last year and planned to gorge on street food and never did. I did try a few things but not even half of your list. Getting me so hungry and ready to go back to Bangkok!

    This is exactly what I would want to do in Thailand. Thai is my favourite food! I love pad thai, but there are so many amazing dishes shown here, I would be spending all of my time eating:)

    Food is indeed a mirror of the place and its people. Bangkok is indeed a potpourri of exotic food. Even though we were vegetarians, we had a wonderful time tasting the street food of Bangkok.

    Reading food posts always makes my mouth water and really makes me want some Papaya salad right now. It’s too bad the Bangkok food trail is mostly for non vegetarians, but the seafood looks absolutely delightful.

    This post just made me hungry. Haha! The roti banana pancakes look delicious. I will search for the recipe and make it. Thailand’s street foods are fascinating. Your trip would be incomplete if you will not go here and eat. It is a good cultural experience too.

    Sounds like Bangkok is perfect foodie destination. I was there once and I loved it, cannot remember if I visited the places you have mentioned though. Thai food is one of my favorites and though I was not a vegetarian back then, I love all the vegetarian choices they have. The Thai green curry would be perfect right now.

    All of these look so good! I also enjoyed exploring the food scene in Bangkok, especially the street food. I love that their food wakes up all of your senses – sights, sound and definitely taste. I was spoiled for options during my visit, no doubt!
