    Thai street Food in Pictures

    In addition to churning out delicious eats at any time, anywhere, they bring colour and energy to the pavement. Though some mansion dwellers and government officials would like to see them disappear into Singapore-style food malls, most Bangkokians rely on them, and many, like us, cherish their presence out in the open air. This thread is a tribute to the men, women and ladyboys who keep the street food coming. Without them, Bangkok simply would not be Bangkok.

    Unlike many vendors who buy the pre-made variety, this vendor in Nang Loeng Market wakes up early to make sai grok (Isaan sausage) by hand — nice and plump.



    A master of vegan Chinese-Thai cooking, she opens daily at Arawy on Dinso Road in the old quarter.



    Our go-to nam prik gaeng (curry paste) vendor in Or Tor Kor Market can be found near the seafood section if you’re looking for exceptional handmade curry pastes.



    While Pornchai is known even to members of the Thai royal family, most vendors work their carts in obscurity. This modest young man grills skewered meats down an alley in Pathumwan, one of the city’s ritziest areas.



    Now in her eighties, this lovely woman has been selling khao niao bing since she was young. We love these grilled sticky rice treats with banana, taro and other fillings, and she makes the best we’ve ever tried. She can usually be found somewhere (she moves around) amid the Old Town streets east of the Grand Palace from morning to early afternoon.



    As this khao lam (grilled sticky rice in bamboo trunk) vendor shows, selling food in bustling markets like Wang Lang can be safer and more pleasant than roaming the streets.
