Taladrodfai Night Market and Some Blazing Pad Thai

Saturday, April 29, 2017

I'm back to continue my Bangkok, Thailand 2015 travel diary and next on my list is how my friends and I spent our last day in the country. As usual, we little rebels opted to explore the places we've never been to and just shopped & ate the hell we want. So my friend, Pei, led us to visit Sukhumvit Soi 38 (near BTS station: Thong Lor). It's known for their street food and of course, the Blazing Pad Thai is located there.

If you're looking for the best pad thai in the world, this is definitely the place to be. The moniker 'Famous Chef in the World' is not just a claim, it's actually true and he has the awards to prove it. There were numerous dishes to choose from but I wouldn't missed a dish of blazing pad thai for the world and any food trip will never be complete without mango sticky rice for dessert.
Oh gosh, I missed this. Imagine the al dente noodles, poached chicken, scrambled egg, veggies, and that sweet-sourish-nutty taste in your mouth right now. Ahhh! Just too good and I really can't wait to go back now that the Thai government is planning to clear its streets from the carts of food and its vendors. But I really hope they can find a win-win agreement or maybe a place to relocate all these, perhaps to put up food parks or something (read the article here).
Always make sure to end your meal with a dish of mango sticky rice. For only 60 baht, I just can't say no to this big serving of this sweet and creamy combo. I can eat this all day.
The crew.
After eating all the good food we can eat, we went to Taladrodfai Night Market. It's famous for vintage items to score, from art to clothes to gadgets, you name it.
I wasn't able to shop as much there but I was happy to have experienced the culture and vibe of the place. The energy and the theme were very welcoming that you would want to see every stall, enter every shop, and just appreciate art in any form.
The market is open every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 5:00 in the afternoon until 1:00 in the morning. To go there, you must take the MRT to Thailand Cultural Center and get out at Exit 3. Walk into the soi on the left side of the Esplanade mall and follow the flags of the Talad Rod fai Market.

I'm glad I was able to visit this place. I can't wait to discover more. Make sure to drop by in these two places when you're in the area.

Love lots, xx
