Trip Report Bangkok Food Tour

Jump to last reply

I'm not much for organized tours, but on the recommendation of some friends I tried out a new guided walking tour yesterday. "Bangkok Food Tour" takes guests on a walk around part of the Bang Rak district of Bangkok, visiting several old restaurants and stalls. Special tasting sizes of the specialties of the places where we visited were served at each stop. We had roast duck with rice, boiled egg with curry, pandan custard buns, som tam, and green curry with crispy roti.

Everything was really good. The green curry was especially tasty, without the overdose of sugar that is common to the dish in other restaurants. There were other stops at local sights along the way between the food shops, and the tour gives out radio earpieces so you can hear the commentary from the guide over the noise of traffic.

Even for a long time resident like me, there were things on this trip I probably wouldn't have ordered on my own, so it's a trip I would recommend to frequent visitors as well as first timers.
