Day 1 & 2 in Bangkok, Thailand! I recently was away for 5 days with my mom on a food and shopping trip to the most awesome and jam packed Bangkok! My blog ran as normal as I was gone as I always pre-write my blog post so I just had to click 'post' while I was away! It's super easy for first time travellers or seasoned visitors to get around Bangkok city cheaply and easily! It's a bustling city for those who love food, shopping, friendly people and a huge array of old school markets and upscale modern hotspots!
This post is of our first evening there and the next day's first morning in Bangkok. I will be breaking up my holiday in posts by days and then separate posts for the haul of snacks, beauty and then skincare shopping! Hope everyone enjoys the photos!
Continue below for the photos!
|Holiday Special: Day 1 & 2 in Bangkok, Thailand!|
|A cart selling charcoal BBQ chicken liver, chicken hearts, pork strips, pork belly and more! All coated with that same sweet savory marinade the deep fried chicken had! Get 1-2 sticks for about $1 SGD or less than $1 USD!|
|With the deliciously thin, crispy goodie filled crepe! We had egg, crabstick, mayo, sweet spicy chilli paste and chilli sauce! So good eaten freshly made! Great to share for two!|
|Just look at all those sandwiches, butter cakes, banana cakes, fruit flavored sponge cream cakes and single slices of bread with spread packaged to grab and go! Seriously love the variety in Thailand!|
|A must have in Thailand! The Tom Yum Goong! A spicy, sour, savory seafood soup filled with herbs and spices! If you can't take truly spicy foods, you might need to only taste and then pass on this!|
|Filled with shallots, lemongrass, fresh staw mushrooms (so rare in singapore to get these), coriander, shrimp, squid and fish! This is sooo good eaten on it's own or with rice!|
|Sweet sauce fried noodles! Made with wide flat rice noodles, egg, kai lan and sweet sauce this dry fried noodle is a must try! I only wish for more sweet sauce for a saltier flavor and deeper color to the nooodles!|
|Lastly my mom ordered a plate of stir fried mixed vegetables! Done just right with oyster sauce! Loved the fresh sweet corn, I wanted more!|
|A delicious moist buttery sweet cake for a late night snack with tea and my mom picked out a vanilla strawberry jam sponge cake! Both from 7-11!|
|A stick of beautifully BBQ chicken hearts! Delicious, chewy and tender! I miss this so much already!|
|Having late breakfast in a small cafe around the corner of the hotel! The noodle making station in the front of the shop! Since we decided not to pay for breakfast at the hotel in out booking as we know how cheap and good it is to eat in Bangkok!|
|My mom being all cute! The shop was very small but very clean and comfortable, after we went in the shop filled up slowly with other tourist and locals!|
|My mom intended for this to be dessert but it came first! A bowl of 'red ruby' dessert which are sago covered chestnuts! Delicious but there weren't that many pieces and the ice pieces melted diluting the already not so sweet coconut milk!|
|The street food vendors along the same street! This one was parked outside another 7-11 outlet! Nothing but fried fish cakes, fish balls, sausages and other fish paste looking things!|
We definitely had a food filled first evening and morning in Bangkok city and I can tell you now that the rest of my post will not fall short on mouth watering photos of street food and other meals we had while there! It's totally awesome to experience street food as it's been eradicated in Singapore due to food hygiene laws and other government regulations! Stayed tuned for the rest of day 2 in Bangkok!
When was the last time you visited Bangkok?
Do you eat street food when in Asia?
