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.
Address:68/51 Soi Phetchaburi 5, Khwaeng Thung Phaya Thai, Khet Ratchathewi, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10400, Thailand
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
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”.
