Eating Thai street food in Bangkok is one of the most incredible and rewarding things you can possibly do when you visit the city!

Street food is available everywhere you look and there’s never a shortage of meals to eat and things to snack on.

In this Thai food video, I take to the streets of Ramkhamhaeng, an area of Bangkok that has an amazing array of authentic Thai street food and also includes a cool little Thai market. On Soi 29 (street 29), there’s an abundance of stalls serving takeaway Thai food as well as sit down street style restaurants.

One of my favorite choices is a little Isaan food restaurant that serves an extensive Thai food menu that covers some of the best Isaan dishes available.

Along with eating the authentic Thai street food, I’ll show you exactly how you can order the same dishes exactly how you want them.

Here’s what I ordered during this meal:

1. Som Tam Thai (ส้มตำไทย) – This is the very popular Thai green papaya salad dressed in lime juice and fish sauce. It’s an outstanding dish to try in Thailand and is one of the most widely available dishes on the Thai food menu!

By the way, in the video I ordered my Sam Tam with ‘prik ha met (พริก 5 เม็ด),’ meaning ‘with 5 chillies.’ You can change the ‘ha (5)’ to another number if you like. 1 – neung, 2 – song, 3 – sam, 4 – see, 5 – ha, etc.

2. Larb Pla Duk (ลาบปลาดุก) – One of my favorite Thai street food dishes is salad made with spicy roasted catfish. The catfish is deboned and mixed with a handful of other delicious Thai spices to make it fantastic!

3. Nam Tok Moo (น้ำตกหมู) – Grilled pork neck is sliced up and dressed with a delicious dressing that includes fish sauce and lime juice. This Thai dish off the menu works great for dipping your sticky rice in!

I ordered it “mai man (ไม่มัน),” meaning “without fat.” You can learn how to order your Thai food just the way you want it!

4. Yam Ruam Mit Talay (ยำรวมมิตรทะเล) – A popular Thai street food to eat is a mixed mung bean noodle salad. The clear noodles are often mixed with your choice of seafood and and then are nicely flavored with lime juice.

5. Tom Saap Sekong Moo (ต้มแซบซี่โครงหมู) – To round out a complete Thai meal, it’s necessary to have a soup along with your other dishes. At this Thai food market I enjoyed a delicious bowl of soup flavored with pork ribs!

Make sure you also eat your Thai street food meal with sticky rice or plain white rice:

Sticky Rice – Khao Neow (ข้าวเหนียว)
Plain Rice – Khao Suay (ข้าวสวย)

After you finish your Bangkok street food feast be sure to get the bill by saying “gep dtang (เก็บตังค์).”

Thai Bangkok Isaan food feast cost me just 240 THB – 5 dishes, 2 sticky rice, 1 plain rice, 1 water bottle, 1 bucket of ice all for less than $8 USD!

Thanks for watching this Bangkok street food video from the Thai food market in Ramkhamhaeng and I really wish you the ultimate Thai food dining experience while you visit Bangkok!

Happy Eating!
