//Most of the street food market at Sukhumvit Soi 38 has moved away from the street and into the parking lot at the beginning of Soi 38//
During the entire flight, I was dreaming of all the simple, yet incredibly tasty street food that as awaiting me in Bangkok, so the first thing I did upon my arrival was to get on the Skytrain to Thong Lo station.Right next to one of the exits, in the beginning of Sukhumvit Soi 38 (Soi = side street), there’s a cluster of food stalls, serving all sorts of delicious food.
The menus are in English and the convenient location just next to Thong Lo station means that there is always a rather large crowd of tourist seated at the small plastic tables.
Many locals will probably tell you that there are better and less expensive street food places in Bangkok, but if you’re in need of a quick fix not too far from the beaten track, then Soi 38 is a great choice.
I got a delicious Chinese soup with seaweed and pork, and for dessert I had sticky rice with fresh mango. It all didn’t cost me more than140THB (approx. $4.5) including a Coke, so even though it might be expensive according to Thai street food standards, it was still well worth the price if you ask me.
