Bangkok Food Guide If You're There For Only 2 Days

That's How You Drink A Fanta

I'll get straight to the point. Don't go to Yaowarat or Bangkok's China Town because it's a tourist trap. It's not that near to the city either , so scrap that.Instead , go to Som Tam at Siam Square. The food is Isaan based and it's authentic. If CNN says you should eat at Som Tam, you eat at Som Tam.
We ordered fried fish, chicken wings (their signature dish) and pork shoulder (signature dish as well) Every dish is infused with Thai spices with chopped up bits of onions, garlic, parsley, etc. Amazing

Next, if you're in Bangkok on Saturday or Sunday, be sure to visit Chatuchak Weekend Market. How to get there. Take the MRT lazy bums. Don't worry, on your way back, you will take a cab and I will tell you why later. Chatuchak is the world's largest market selling all sorts of stuff. I mean it....EVERYTHING !!! From sex toys to sushi, you find it there. They may even have Hitler's underwear for all I know. Be smart and dress as little and skimpy as possible because it will be hot hot hot. Walking under corrugated zinc roof will definitely drive you nuts. JJ Market as it is also known sells food and drinks - enough to keep your energy going and remain hydrated. Like the first photo at the top of this blog, you must drink your Fanta in a plastic bag or you will be thrown in a Bangkok prison.
Here are some photos of Chatuchak Market
The only way to drink a Fanta

Pork stewed rice - So damn good. Please order this

Now that's you're done browsing around for the past 4 hours, take a cab back to your hotel because taking the BTS after that ordeal is just torturing.
Now, for the ultimate authentic Chinese - Thai street food cuisine, you have to go to Pochana 55 in the Thonglor district. Don't ask the cab drivers where it is. Have them drop you off at the Thonglor BTS and find your own way. Live a little would you? It's only 1 minute from the BTS.
Omelette oyster and seafood tom yam-Too delicious and too authentic.
Pochana 55 only opens from 7pm until 4am catering for night crawlers.

Lastly, for the ultimate ultimate food of any form, you must have the Shibuya Honey Toast from After You. It's the dessert from heaven because the moment you cut out a piece of buttered toast plus whipped cream and ice cream, you'd melt with happiness.
