Street Food in Bangkok, Thailand

do you have a strong stomach? if you do, then you must try the street food that u see in Bangkok. i mean, it's unique, it's delicious and it's CHEAP! but mind you, they're nomads. now you see now you don't. u see them that that spot today, u won't see them in a couple of hours. if WHEN u see them, don't think twice of coming back later to have a snack. they might (most of the time) disappear!

this stall serves freshly squeezed orange juice. i believe these oranges are locally grown and it's super sweet! no water added, no extra sugar added, just pure orange juice! great for a hot day and source of vitamin c.

now this drink stall, is practically everywhere. and they make practically all types of drinks, from different types of coffee, tea and juices. they have green tea, milk tea, white coffee, black coffee... and God knows what else. there's a menu somewhere but it's all in Thai so am not sure what other drinks they have. but from what i know, the milk tea... (all you tea drinkers) is YUM MEH i tell you!!! (sorry ah coffee drinkers.. :P heheh)

i'm sure if u're walking around the streets of Bangkok, u'll find these type of street stalls and if u're feeling thirsty :) go for it, don't worry if they don't have ice - they DO! hahahah

Stuffs in 7-11, Bangkok, Thailand

you would think the 7-11 down the road from your house is the same from the 7-11 in another town or in another city or country. i sort of thought it will be quite SIMILAR but when u come to Thailand or Bangkok to be exact. it'll make you go O_O hehehe literally. ok lah, i'm ulu like that.. hahahah y? well if you know what is in store in a 7-11 in Bangkok, you should know what i'm talking about right?

i let the pics tell you...
you can literally have a full course meal in there! from appetizers, to snacks, to main meals to desserts and of course drinks! they have the instant rempah, instant rice set meals, noodle meals, fresh meat like ham, bacon, sausages.... even a microwave for you to reheat the food... and... get this... PORK!!! hahahahha and that's what got me to O_O with :D

if i could, i could just shop in here, like as in, grocery shop... hahahah tell me bout your 7-11 stories... just as good as the one i went in Bangkok?

Love Scene, Sukhumvit, Thailand

Ever since we landed in Bangkok, somehow we couldn't find the time/place to have authentic Thai food. so the 2nd night we were there, we insisted in finding a local Thai restaurant. we asked the locals there on where we can get local Thai food. fortunately one was quite helpful in pointing to us the direction of the restaurant, that was just down the road from where we were.... and the name of the place is called Love Scene... hahahha don't ask me why, i don't know :P

the front of the restaurant had the fish tanks (indicates they have fresh seafood) and the menu. but when we headed inside, we were somehow had to pass by the kitchen.. and the word dodgy came to my head. but surprisingly, the dining area was cozy, dimmed lights, interesting Thai deco, tv with the sports on, and a lil bar. there were even pictures of the Thai King and family pictures.

there were patrons having dinner there already when we arrived. the menu was warned out indicating that this place have been around for a very long time. they had of course the local Thai food and also western food.. they call it European food hehehhehe... but of course we ordered Thai. no words can describe, having tomyam in Thailand... da bomb i tell you!! and everything else that we ordered was good as well :)

what we had? the usual tomyam "red" seafood soup, steamed fish, a lala dish, and some mixed vege. the rice was hot, fluffy and fragrant, the food was good and so was the bill too! satisfaction!!! :)

i think if you google Love Scene Thai and European Food, u'll find the address somehow. it's definately in the Sukhumvit area, near a gym hahahah i'm sorry, that's all i can give you on the location :P
