Bangkok restaurants

The Thai equivalent of "how are you?" is "Gin khao ru yang?" or "have you eaten?" which sums up their attitude towards food—a passionate national pastime. Meals are enjoyed throughout the day in Thailand, and food carts with fold-up tables and chairs flourish everywhere from sidewalks to shopping malls—even sois, or side streets, often have impressive selections of cheap, flavorsome snacks that can't be found on typical restaurant menus. Although many carts operate until late at night, the best time to go is at lunch when the food is freshest and selection is at its peak. Hygiene isn't a huge concern, but follow the wisdom of the crowds and avoid places where the oil looks too dark, the ingredients look limp, or the food isn't cooked in front of you. Stick to stir-fried, grilled or boiled dishes (anything raw or involving ice may be contaminated) and keep an open mind when it comes to ambience—these booths thrive on quality, not appearance. Bangkok offers a myriad of multicultural, fine-dining options as well (everything from Chinese and Indian to Japanese and Italian), with many restaurants located near subway stops.
