In this dynamic city, almost electric with an energy that never seems to sleep, there is always something happening and always something tantalising to eat. Bangkok is a city in which you will never go hungry with authentic, affordable and abundantly tasty food always close at hand whether it is the comforting treat of sweet and sticky barbecue pork skewers or chicken satay on the go. Even the corner 7-Eleven offers some seriously drool-worthy options like steamed buns filled with tiny quail eggs! Thai food in general is known for its delicate balance of flavour, with every mouthful promising a little sour, salty and sweet. Located right in the middle of the country, Bangkok is privileged to an influx from north and south, offering cuisine from all over the country. In essence, Bangkok for foodies is a dream come true! With so much delicious food to get to (and only one lifetime in which to try it all) you won’t want to miss a thing, so I’ve compiled a must eat in Bangkok list to help you out. After a lifetime in Bangkok, picking my favourites wasn’t easy, but here you have it – a Bangkok food guide that will show you exactly what to eat in Bangkok, and where to find all the most scrumptious dishes!
