Eating / Food in Bangkok
What makes each Thai’s life happy???? EATING (and sleeping, everywhere, where he could find a place). Independently of the day- or nighttime. There are no typical meal times, as in the ” rest of the world “. Every Thai eats, when he gets hungry; not when it gets up to lunchtime 😉
Everywhere you could find kitchens or small meal statuses (beside innumerable branches of a well-known Hamburger chain) in which you could eat very well up to excellent meals. For Europeans the ” Ambience ” is surely not known, however I can only recommend it to everyone I spoiled myself in the last years only once the stomach, and that was in a restaurant and not in a kitchen or a meal status. Accordingly I can only say little about good restaurants, I adhere more to the kitchens.
The soups and the weighing courts are recommendable. Orders are very easy to complete also for Europeans: simply show, what you want and the meal will be arranged. Some Thai meals are very to extremely sharp, but the ” cooks ” are in the meantime so clever that they don’t use “hard spices” for Europeans. And everybody understands, if you say “not spicy “. You should use this note above also in restaurants, if you order a Thai Tom Yam soup. A very good soup, but for Europeans REAL uneatable sharply, if you get it served “Thai-Style”.
Who wants to go well and with large selection meal, and this still in a beautiful atmosphere has from December to January the possibility at the “Word trade center beer garden”. I like this beer garden, which offers many meal statuses and different beer places also: from roasted grasshoppers (a ” specialty “) up to Frankfurter small sausages and bratwurst you get everything what is well and tasty. Very recommendable is e.g. also the splinter piglet that is served with a sharp sauce. The statuses have really a very large mixture from Thai and international courts and the more frequent international courts will be “changed” to Thai-food. Since all courts show samples, you could choose your meal by seeing; not only by guessing.
