If this is your first visit to Bangkok, then you'll quickly understand that food is king and street food in particular is an essential part of this city. Your perception of street food is going to change here. Instead of Sabrett Hot Dog stands like in New York and oily kebabs like in Europe, Bangkok's streets dish up meals that could very easily be served in a brick-and-mortar restaurant for a multiple of the price. There are so many streets dedicated to food in Bangkok that it's hard to choose where to gorge. But for a convenient and late night option, Sukhumvit Soi 38 can't be beat.
We recommend Trabblrs meet at Pad Thai Fire Look, one of the first stalls on the street that makes arguably the best pad thai in the city. Grab a stool, relish your first bite, exchange travel tales, and then move on down the road to savor Hainanese chicken and rice, noodle soups, mango sticky rice, and more. The number of locals eating at these stalls is testament that you're getting the real thing in a hygienic setting. So don't be shy, try everything...the food doesn't bite!
Meeting point: Pad Thai Fire Look. The stall is by where Sukhumvit and Soi 38 intersect.
Leaders, this should be a dinner plan at the earliest!
