Most pictures of this Thai street food have been taken in Sukhumvit Soi 38, the famous night market. I dont know much about the Thai language, but my strongest point is naming Thai food dishes, which throughout reading this post you will know its actually quite terrible.
For organic food please check out my article on Paleo Robbie.
We start off with a typical dish served in Sukhumvit Soi 38, which is the kai gai tod, which is friend chicken with rice. The price for this will vary from 40 baht to 80 baht, depending on the size you want.
The next dish is a papaya salad which in Thai is known as som tam, very common all over Sukhumvit soi 38, prices start from around 40 baht upwards.
One of my favorite dishes is the pork, rice with a friend egg and some basil. I’m afraid I don’t know the Thai translation for this dish, but for 50 baht its a steal! The quality of the pork is something to be desired off, but if your only playing 50 baht, you really wont be getting the best cuts, well in Thailand anyway.
The kai pad pu is a simple dish that consist of fried rice with shredded crab, depending on where you go in Sukhumvit Soi 38, the price will vary from 50-60 baht, this is one of my favorite dishes here and a week wont go past where I don’t order it.
Zooming out of the last picture, we get to what is most likely the two most famous Thai dishes, the first being pad Thai (pictured far right) which in this instance is with chicken, costing a mere 50 baht. The second being mango sticky rice with coconut milk, which is a desert rather than a main course. There are a few sellers of the mango sticky river on Sukhumvit Soi 38, so depending on where you go prices will vary from 40-60 baht.
The latest thing I tried was the duck and rice, which looked a lot better when it came out than when I saw the picture in the menu. It has taken the #1 Sukhumvit Soi 38 spot for my favorite dish, costing only 50 baht, the skin, the duck the everything is amazing!!!!
Sukhumvit Soi 38 is very good for different types of street food, the place doesn’t really get busy until after 5pm, if you head there anytime before then, only 1-2 stalls will be open. Prices for street food tend to be on the high side by about 5-15 baht, most likely because its near Thong Lo. If the prices are too expensive for you, you can head down to the On-Nut beer garden which has cheaper food.
