Bangkok's street food is legendary, and food critics around the world have sung its praises. It is often said that the one burner vendor sitting on a stool in front of the five star hotel will whip up a better meal than the posh restaurant above it. This may not always be true, but if you know where to look, there are some treasures. Jae Fai has been raved about by just about every foodie and guidebook, and for a good reason, the auntie's seafood pad kee mao is of legend. So are the mangoes and sticky rice at Korpanich, which has been around for almost a century. The curries at Khao Gaeng Jek Pui are legendary, while those seeking Muslim chicken biryani may want to sample the hidden Aisa Rot Dee across town. Food courts are also a great way to sample street food, with all kinds of curries and other Thai classics available from an array at vendors. The day market at Lang Suan is an excellent choice, as is the food court at the Or Tor Kor market up near Chatuchak. Don't forget to leave room for dessert, with Nuttaporn homemade ice cream leading the list, served in a small shophouse and going strong for over seventy years.
