It’s been a month since I went to Bangkok, Thailand. I already shared with you the Thai tea I had each day that I was in Bangkok, read about them here. Now I’d like to share with you different foods and drink I had while in Bangkok and also some of our pictures in Bangkok.
On our first day in Thailand, we had a full day tour. We visited the Royal Grand Palace first. The Royal Grand Palace is so beautiful. This place is really fit for a King.
We also went to Wat Pho to see the famous Reclining Buddha. I have megalophobia but the Reclining Buddha didn’t trigger my fear of large objects unlike New York’s Statue of Liberty that really scared the bejeezus out of me. If the Reclining Buddha was standing, I’d probably not go anywhere near it. But that wouldn’t be called Reclining Buddha anymore.
After our tiring walk around Royal Grand Palace and Wat Pho and climb up at Wat Arun, we were famished. So we stopped by and grabbed something to eat at the ferry port.
The picture above is the very first authentic Thai meal I had in Thailand. It’s noodle soup with pork, crab meat, and wanton. I liked it very much.
To wash down my noodle soup, I bought this fresh dragon fruit juice.
I also bought this Thai milk tea which is sold in front of the fresh fruit juice stand. I can’t decide which drink to buy so I bought two drinks.
On our way back to the van, we passed by this vendor which sells fried banana, sweet potato balls, tofu, and spring roll vegetable. My friends tricked me into buying fried tofu so I did. I was glad that I did buy the fried tofu, at THB20, it was well worth my money. I love the sweet sauce that it came with. It’s sweet and and a little spicy.
After our filling lunch, we were ready to continue our tour so we went to Wat Trimitr which houses the Golden Buddha. Unlike the Reclining Buddha, the Golden Buddha is small and non-threatening at all.
Our tour finished around 4PM so the tour guide dropped us off at our hotel. We rested for a bit and then we headed out of the hotel to go to Platinum Mall to do a little bit of shopping. We got to shop a little but since we’re scared of staying out too late (and since the mall is closing by 7PM,) we headed out of Platinum Mall to grab something to eat.
Since I was really starving, I bought the first food that I saw. We passed by a food cart that sells this crepe looking food. I ordered one that had pork floss, cashew nuts, hot sauce, and some sugar.
Here’s my Bangkok crepe with all of the toppings.
My order in its clear plastic bag. This has that sweet and spicy taste to it. It was quite huge. I already shared it with my friends but we still had a hard time finishing it.
Mandatory selfie with my food.
I also bought this Bangkok style pork BBQ. It tasted like tocino to me. It was good. I paid THB10 for one stick.
We also ordered Pad Thai near Pratunam area. Here I am at the Pad Thai food cart.
Here’s my spicy Pad Thai that costs THB40. The taste was just ordinary, nothing special to it. It was very spicy since the chili was cooked with the noodles. I found it a little unbearable to eat so I had to drink water with every bite. I was too full after eating this Pad Thai.
On our second day, we were scheduled to go to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. My friends already warned me that goods will be a lot expensive there so I didn’t really buy anything in the floating market. But we did eat there.
Here I am with the Pad Thai that Aki ordered. This Pad Thai is way better than the one that we ordered the night before. But this is more expensive. I think this costs THB100.
After our floating market tour, we bought food once again.
Here’s my chicken and pork satay. This is good. I liked the chicken satay better.
Here I am on our way to MBK Mall. Our van had to drop us off on the road leading to MBK road. Vans are rerouted since there was ongoing protest around MBK Mall while we were there. Our tour guide lead the way to MBK Mall.
Here is another picture outside MBK Mall.
When we got to MBK Mall we checked out their stalls. Since we were going to Pratunam Night Market, I decided not to buy anything in MBK Mall. We ate lunch in MBK’s the fifth Food Ave.
This is the soup that came with my Fried Rice meal. This soup tastes gross. I just had one spoon and I couldn’t stomach the taste.
This is my Fried Rice with Beef Vietnamese Style. This fried rice tastes quite good actually. This fried rice is good for two people so my friend and I split up this rice meal.
On our way out of MBK Mall, we saw Baskin Robbins. I bought a single scoop Old Fashioned Butter Pecan which is my favorite flavor from Baskin Robbins.
All smiles since I was able to taste once again Baskin Robbins’ Old Fashioned Butter Pecan ice cream.
For our dinner we settled for this noodle place.
I got a large bowl of Noodles Roasted Duck with Shrimp Dumplings for THB70. This noodle soup tasted good.
Here’s a mandatory group picture on our last night at Bangkok.
Here’s our bill during our last dinner. We had a hard time figuring out which order was ours. But good thing their menu had pictures to it.
Overall, I don’t think we had food in Bangkok that tasted phenomenal. We weren’t able to go to the suggested foodie areas since there were protests in those areas. I guess I’ll need to go back to Thailand to have a taste of the most delicious Pad Thai.
