Bangkok does come into its own after the heat subsides and the lights go down, but it also has some fabulous places to have a bite to eat for lunch. The range of choices is incredibly wide here, from the cheapest street corner meals from vendor stalls, to some great bargains at some of the city's most posh eateries. If you favor healthy meals, head to Dressed, where you can build your own salads and wraps, or go stock up on gourmet deli fixings from the local branch of New York's Dean and Deluca. While some of Bangkok's most elegant dining spots will really break the pocketbook come dinner, one can find set lunches at these same spots without needing to whip out the credit card. The city's most elegant French restaurant, Le Normandie, is a prime example of this, but set deals can also be found at Nahm, voted one of the top 50 restaurants in the world for several years running now. For Japanese fans, those who can never get a table at dinner at popular Isao will actually have a shot at lunch, along with a 'lunchtime specials' menu. For those on a budget, some of the best hole in the walls are available for lunch, spots like Nai Mong Hoi Tod and its delicious seafood omelets, or perhaps some Thai Muslim chicken biryani at Aisa Rot Dee or fried chicken at Soi Polo. The list is endless and hopefully this guide will steer you in the right direction.
