Here we are for another week of Wanderfood Wednesday, kindly hosted by Wanderust and Lipstick.
The Emporium on Sukhumvit in Bangkok is one my favorite malls to window shop. A browsers delight, and once in a while there are some great bargains to be had. Walk out the front door, and a few steps to your left you’ll find some fantastic Bangkok street food. I don’t remember these food stalls being here the last time I was in the city. However, they’re here now, so I decided on dinner to go.
First stop was the som tam salad lady. ” A little spicy I say.” (My translation… hot with a small “h”, not a capital “H”. Don’t make me cry!)I watch as the salad is freshly made, and packaged to go.
Then I decide on some Thai sausage. If you like sausage, then Thai sausage is an absolute must. When bought from a street stall it will be grilled over charcoal until crispy on the outside, moist and flavorful inside. There were quite a few sausage stalls to choose from. I chose this one because he had lots of customers, and the sausage looked to be freshly grilled.
Off I went with my salad and sausage to enjoy at home, and I was not disappointed. Both were prepared to perfection, and I enjoyed every morsel.
I spent about 70 baht for the entire meal (under $3.). There are also tables available where you can people watch while you eat your delicious budget dinner.
I believe these food stalls open around 6pm. The Emporium is at the Phrom Pong Sky Train station.
