    Yes, agreed. Try everything. EXCEPT meat skewers that have been in Bangkok heat for the last 2 hours, bacteria multiplying by the second. I was paying homage to the porcelain throne for 2 days afterwards.

    Foods that are being made on the spot are best to avoid food poisoning. I had my best pad thai from a street food vendor.

    I agree...only eat things that you know we're just cooked...some things sit for MANY hours while being served...also...food sold by individuals on trains has often been prepared hours earlier and not cooled or kept hot. over 5 years ago

    Pad Thai is a personal favourite, and a must do. It is very cheap (and delicious) on Khao San Road, and you can watch it being put together. over 5 years ago

    Pad thai is the obvious choice here but does vary but is always a winner with chicken, freshly cooked also. Tom Yum soup full of goodies is great also but can be hot hot hot. Bugs ...Khoa San Road has them : ) Not Thai but there is some very good and real coffee about and cheap! I was there a week ago so its all fresh advice : ) over 5 years ago

    You can eat extremely well on the street in Thailand. Look for places that have a lot of locals lined up -- they won't eat at places with low quality and poor food safety.
    I prefer the street food to most restaurants. I always choose something that is cooked in front of me (though I will eat freshly cut up pineapple and mango, as well as smoothies).
    My favourite is pad kra prao - which is stirfried chili peppers, holy basil and a protein, usually served with rice and sometimes with a fried egg. Chicken is usually a safe bet in Thailand -- gai. You can order this in Thai quite easily and will be rewarded with a smile and a delicious meal. You pronounce it like "pad kra prow guy". If you are a man, add "cup" on the end, and if you are a woman, add "kaa". This is, more or less, please. almost 4 years ago

    Agree with all the above. However there are some fantastic river street food places near kao San road. They are fantastic.

    Eat everything you want, don't worry about the engridients its all good.
