So one of the main reasons we came to Thailand was for the street food. And also the cheap-ness of everything because STUDENT LOANS BABY. So anyway, I tried to document all the food which is hard considering I wanted to inhale everything as soon as I got my greasy paws on it.
I’ve given myself the vital task rating all the yummy little foods on three scales. Taste, experience and BM (bowel movement) scale.
Please enjoy my very professional review and mediocre photo edits!
(I’ve tried my best to title the foods and link the locations of the places but half the time I don’t know where I am or what I’m eating. Some foods have titles, some don’t. You’re welcome.)
Let’s get into it boys!
#1 & #2
Tom Yum Goong:
Taste: 10/10 oily, spicy, sour, a soft boiled egg and dumplings all singing in harmony like a church choir on Christmas Eve. Phenomenal, top 3 Bangkok foods. Zero complaints.
Experience: 6/10 (+) amazing food, (-) foreigner asking annoying foreigner questions ruining the vibe.
BM scale: 3/10 good day, normal
Taste: 8/10 soft omelette with ham and rice. Pretty standard. I love eggs.
Experience: 6/10 (+) amazing food, (-) foreigner asking annoying foreigner questions ruining the vibe
BM scale: 3/10 normal
Hours: 10am -9pm, closed on Mondays
Taste: 7/10 (+) hot & zingy, about 13 different unidentifiable flavors, (-) lots of full chilis, (-) molded rice
Experience: 9/10 (+) we watched Thai dramas while eating, (+) entire restaurant involved
BM scale: 4/10 looks bad, not bad
Taste: 4/10 better than Cass, still worse than most
Experience: 7/10 (+) thai drama but (- ) ice in beer?
BM scale: 2/10, didn’t drink enough
I couldn’t find the name or address of this place but its right across the street from P’aor on Soi Petchaburi 5. It has bar seating outside with thousands of bottlecaps glued to the bar making it difficult to place drinks down. Otherwise a good time.
Crispy coconut ball:
Taste: 9/10 (+) sweet coconut nectar inside crispy ball, (-1) for green onions?
Experience: 9/10, (-) squirted hot coconut cream all over shirt and shoes, (+) very fun and hilarious
BM scale: 1/10 almost to no effect on regular poops
Again, Soi Petchaburi 5. Just a food stall non the same street as P’Aor we stumbled upon. You’ll be able to smell it.
#6 & #7
Taste: 8/10 (+) zingy and sour, very fun noodles
Experience: 6/10 (-) came for crab, out of crab. (+) Good sewer view, drinks had crushed ice
BM scale: 2/10 a good break
Taste: 8/10 (+) soft boiled shrimp in eggs. I love eggs.
Experience: 6/10 (-) came for crab, out of crab. (+) Good sewer view, drinks still had crushed ice
BM scale: 2/10 again not bad
Nhong Rim Klong (ร้าน หน่องริมคลอง)

Address: 30 Ekkamai 21 Alley, Khlong Tan Nuea, Bangkok 10110.
Opening hours: Mon-Fri, 8.30am to 4.30pm.
Sadness (aka grilled muscles with cheese)
Taste: 5/10 (-) sliced cheese, mediocre, (-) waited 2 hours, (+) can’t really go wrong with grilled mussles
Experience: 2/10 (-) waited 2 hours, then was told no scallops after we ordered them already, only got these. Mediocre at best, made me sad. (+2) for cool guy cooking
BM scale: N/A didn’t pay attention, forgot about these almost instantly
Taste: 9/10 (+) firm noodles, soft duck, good rich flavor
Experience: 7/10 (+) food stall, (+) rude lady but in a cool way, (-) stole my condiments
BM scale: 3/10 normal
#10 & #11
Taste: 6/10 (+) meat sandwich, (-) cold
Experience: 4/10 (+) pretty mall, (-) inside a mall, don’t really like eating inside or parsley sprigs
BM scale: 3/10 normal
Taste: 5/10 (+) good supple texture, (-) too sweet. (+) I still like eggs.
Experience: (+) pretty mall, (-) inside a mall, don’t really like eating inside or parsley sprigs
BM scale: 3/10 no noticeable difference
It’s in the food court somewhere but honestly I forgot where or what it’s called. But the meat sandwiches are sitting on a display in the front looking very nice and supple.

#12 & #13
Taste: 9/10 (+) shack style thai food, no idea what it was. But there was eggs. Oily, fluffy eggs, spicy curry and rice
Experience: 9/10 (+) wonderful lady, unreadable menu; dirty pans; dirty water and firey shits. Amazing. Went back twice.
Shit level: 15/10 bunghole burning, better have a book ready for the toilet type of poops. I mean fire down below, thunder down under toilet time. Don’t make plans for the day.
Shack restaurant right across our hostel called Phobphanhostel.
Taste: 9/10 (+) mild in spice but full of flavor, like a Thai chicken noodle soup. Mega relaxing to eat, I wanted to be sick just so I could eat this and feel better.
Experience: 9/10 second time here, (+) same wonderful lady, same unreadable menu; same dirty pans; same dirty water but no firey shits. Still amazing.
BM scale: 2/10 a relief
Welp! That’s it for now, my fingers are tired of editing pictures incorrectly and hitting the underline button (A Prachi insert: she doesn’t even know how) so many times. Hope you enjoyed reading and hearing about my travelers poops!
Basically, Morgan handed off the job to me (Prachi- who else) while lounging, drinking my coffee and saying “Uhg…finish it for me little Pumpkin Fritter”.
