This humble eatery actually does have indoor seating, but it still qualifies as street food. Famed for its pad thai and stir fried mussel and oyster creations, Hoi Tod Chaw Lae has been on countless television specials as noted by all the logos inside the simple fast food joint. The pad thai and fried egg with seafood grills are about triple what you'd pay elsewhere in town, but in trendy Thong Lor, its actually a steal, especially given how tasty the offerings are. Everything is good, but the or-ror oysters, eggs, and rice flour pancakes are a real standout. As of late, Chaw Lae seems to have moved away from having pad thai available, but if you like seafood, they still get the vote for being one of the best no frills food spots in Bangkok, and are a great option in pricey Thong Lor.
