00:25 Silom Soi 20 (สีลมซอย 20) Market – One of my favorite morning Bangkok street food markets in central Bangkok is Silom Soi 20 (สีลมซอย 20) Market, open everyday in the morning from about 6 am to 9 or 10 am. You can walk around , get some good street food, and just enjoy the Thai food atmosphere. The market isn’t very big, so it remains small and easy to navigate, but it still packs in quite a bit. I started the morning street food tour with a bowl of nam king (น้ำขิง), which is hot ginger soup, and along with soft silky tofu, plus some fried crispy dough thrown in the bowl as well. It was a good way start the morning at the market, and the ginger soup always feels good on the through. Located at the front of Silom Soi 20 (สีลมซอย 20) Market is a lady who sells khao neow dam sang kaya (ข้าวเหนียวดำสังขยา), black sticky rice with custard, and according to my wife who loves Thai desserts, it’s one of her favorite versions in all of Bangkok. And even though I’m not too big into Thai desserts, I do enjoy a couple bites of khao neow dam sang kaya (ข้าวเหนียวดำสังขยา) as well – that’s how good it it. She sits at the front of the market, right on the corner of Silom Soi 20, and when you order, she’ll add some black sticky rice to a piece of banana leaf, add some coconut cream, and then follow it by a slice of Thai custard. What I like is that it’s not too sweet, but the rice is perfectly cooked so you can taste the grains, and then it’s slightly salty to contrast the sweet custard. Finally, the coconut cream is so ridiculously creamy and rich. If you love Thai desserts and sweets, this is a stall you don’t want to miss.

Finally, for my real Thai street food breakfast this morning I went to the outside of the market, along Silom road and got a plate of khao mok gai (ข้าวหมกไก่), which is the Thai version of chicken biryani. The flavor of the rice was incredibly, with a touch of cumin and turmeric, and the chicken was moist and flavorful. The sauce was sour and minty, with a herb touch, and not too sweet. The lady selling khao mok gai was also extremely friendly, and when she saw that I was filming, she gave me an extra piece of chicken. She was awesome, thank you to her!

7:36 Bangkok Street Food Stall on Sathon Soi 12 – For lunch, since we had eaten such a huge breakfast, we just hung out around our neighborhood and ate a quick plate of ka prao moo sab kai dao (กระเพราหมูสับไข่ดาว), Thai basil chicken with minced pork and a fried egg on the side. This is one of the quintessential Bangkok dishes that’s available at nearly all street stalls that serve stir fried dishes. It’s easy to order and usually tastes pretty good.

9:59 Sky Bar Bangkok at Sirocco, State Tower – I’ve been living in Bangkok since 2009 and I still had never been to the most famous sky bar in Bangkok: Sirocco, State Tower. So after having a quick late lunch (more like a dinner), we headed to the sky bar for sunset. Since Sirocco wasn’t yet open until 6 pm, we had a drink first at Distil bar, which is adjacent and saw the sunset from there, and then at 6 pm we headed to the other side of Sirocco sky bar for an even more incredibly view of Bangkok. Drink are crazy expensive, but that view is pretty ridiculously amazing!

14:36 Suan Phlu (สวนพลู) Market – Finally, to end this fantastic day in Bangkok we headed to yet another Bangkok street food market at Suan Phlu (สวนพลู). I couldn’t really decided what I wanted to eat, so finally I decided on a bowl of kuay teow gai sen mee (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวไก่เส้นหมี่), Thai chicken noodles – a dish you’ll find all over the streets of Bangkok and a very popular dish. It was alright, and a good way to end the evening.

  1. I was just there this morning. The place is awesome. The food was everything Mark says it would be. I walked 3km to get there just to build up an appetite. Worth every step. There is a BTS about a 10 minute walk away.

  2. Truly a great spot,spent more than a week just behind the 711 at soi 20 that khao mok gai is exactly it Mark,,sooooo aroy mak! and many other foods at this morning market. One of my favourite places in BKK for me as i am a morning person.

    Cheers Clay

  3. Experienced the chicken and rice as well as sticky rice dessert and it was incredible! Using your videos throughout our trip, any more tips for breakfast?

  4. 这是一个很棒的节目我是台湾的观众 主持人真的主持的功力也不错基本上来说 只要不怕辣不怕臭 就可以享受天底下的美食 有一些美食节目的主持人 在吃一些他们陌生的食物的时候是捏着鼻子走着眉头痛苦的表情 我觉得这些人就已经不够资格去主持一个美食节目了因为他们的味觉太主观了 對於味道的記憶已經成為主觀的習慣就沒有辦法客觀的去品嘗任何的食物 所以這個節目我很喜歡看 但是一边看一边流口水的感觉不怎么好哈哈哈
