REVIEW: THAIFOOD VERY GOOD AND VERY CHEAP

Wheeled street carts serving Thai classics are an institution in Bangkok, but they are not always practical; stalls are usually perched on the edge of hot and stuffy roads with no seats and no comprehensive menu. ‘Thaifood Very Good and Very Cheap’ is street food presented as more of an alfresco restaurant; lines of benches sit either side of a small dead end street with waitresses and a full, open air kitchen.

Located by exit 3 of Phrom Phong BTS station, the restaurant does exactly what is says in the title. The Thai food is fresh and tasty, cooked fast, and is as inexpensive as any market food we have seen. It’s a fantastic introduction to Thai street food with pictures of dishes displayed on the walls and a huge variety to choose from, including a full vegetarian menu.

Drinks are served in tin mugs and the plates are more picnic plastic than delicate china, but the food is definitely some of the tastiest local delicacies we’ve tried. Our standouts include the 45 baht fried tofu with cashews and the 80 baht spring rolls.

Bangkok is a culinary capital with hundreds of tempting places to eat, but we can’t find a single fault with this laid-back, colourful and rustic vendor.

  1. Did you try the ice cream served in hot dog rolls sold at street carts? Such amazing variety of food at the markets and sold by street vendors. Stomach problems made me cautious. I did eat rat though.
