In this Thai street food in Bangkok video, I went over to Sriyan Market (ตลาดศรีย่าน), one of my favorite local market areas on Bangkok, and tried a legendary version of crispy rice salad with soured pork, called yam naem khao tod in Thai (ยำแหนมข้าวทอด). But before that stall opened, next to this Thai street food stall is a stall selling amazing haw mok (ห่อหมก), Thai fish custard.

Mae Boon Ma Haw Mok Pla Chon (แม่บุญมา ห่อหมกปลาช่อน)

Let’s start with the Thai fish custard (ห่อหมก). This is one of the Thai dishes that can be really good, or not too good if it’s made taking shortcuts and using lesser quality ingredients. But this was an amazing version. The Thai street food cart is called Mae Boon Ma Haw Mok Pla Chon (แม่บุญมา ห่อหมกปลาช่อน), and it’s a family run stall that specializes in mainly fish custard made with snakehead fish and noni leaves (bai yaw ใบยอ).

Normally you would eat haw mok (ห่อหมก) along with rice, and at this street food stall in Bangkok they mainly just did takeaway to eat at home. But since I had a spoon with me already, I decided to eat it right there on spot. It was absolutely insanely delicious. The typical recipe of haw mok (ห่อหมก) a red curry paste that is stirred by hand with coconut cream and duck eggs until it turns to a foamy paste. Then it’s steamed in a banana leaf cup or packet with the fish and noni leaves. This was one of the better versions of haw mok (ห่อหมก) I’ve had in a long time.

Price – 20 Thai Baht ($0.56)

P’Aor Yam Nam Khao Tod (ร้านพี่อ้อ ยำแหนม-ข้าวทอด)

Next up for the yam naem khao tod (ยำแหนมข้าวทอด) and this is the Bangkok street food stall that I really came to eat at. The opening times are a little tricky (you can read more about it on the blog:, but we arrived in the early afternoon, to get what many people say is the best time. Yam naem khao tod (ยำแหนมข้าวทอด) is a Thai mixed salad dish of deep fried crispy rice balls with soured pork, and crispies, which is mixed up with lime juice, fish sauce, and chilies.

This is one of the street food stalls that as soon as they open up, there’s immediately somehow a lineup of customers waiting. My wife and I ordered, and luckily I brought a plate from home along with a spoon — most people ordered takeaway to eat at home, as there are no tables there to eat.

Yam naem khao tod (ยำแหนมข้าวทอด) is not a Thai dish or snack I eat very often, but this version was delicious. It was refreshing, and ironically, though it includes quite a bit of pig skin, it was light, and didn’t have an oiliness to it.

If you want some amazing yam naem khao tod (ยำแหนมข้าวทอด), this is a Thai street food stall in Bangkok that you should check out.
