Sukhumvit Soi 38 – An Introduction to Eating Street Food in Bangkok

Eating on Sukhumvit Soi 38, Bangkok, Thailand

NOTE (October 2015): Unfortunately Sukhumvit Soi 38, due to a property dispute, has been shut down as a street food street.


Back in 2009, when I had only been in Bangkok for a short period of time, Sukhumvit Soi 38 (สุขุมวิท ซอย 38) was one of the very first places I did a marathon…

…No, not the jogging kind of a marathon, but a street food marathon.

Fresh in Bangkok, I was thrilled with every street food cart in the city, and I literally wanted to pull up a stool at every vendor and devour whatever they served me.

Life moved on, and I kept eating more and more food in Bangkok, discovering numerous other marvelous street food areas in town, and sampling all sorts of Thai dishes I never even knew existed.

Sukhumvit Soi 38

So from eating street food a number of times on Sukhumvit Soi 38 back when I first came to Bangkok, it had honestly been years since I had been here.

I was well due for a trip back to this famous street food street in Bangkok.

Sukhumvit is one of Bangkok’s main roadway veins, a street that runs through the heart of many important districts of Bangkok, from Siam to Asok to On Nut.

“Soi” is the Thai word for small or neighborhood street.

Stalls open starting in the evening around 5 – 6 pm

Located just below Thong Lo Station (ทองหล่อ), on the Sukhumvit Line of the BTS, Soi 38 is extremely accessible and centrally located.

Everyday, beginning at about 5 pm, a variety of street food stalls begin to set up on both sides of the road.

Thong Lo station (ทองหล่อ)

I arrived on the early side, just after 5 pm, and while some of the vendors were already serving, others were still setting up (to confirm all vendors are open, you might want to show up about 6:30 pm or so).

(Note: If you’re looking for a sit-down meal, check out 55 Pochana across the street from Soi 38, food is pretty good)

Where and What Should You Eat?

There are a number of vendors selling things like khao moo daeng (red pork over rice), kuay jab (noodle rolls), khao ka moo (pork leg), khao man gai (chicken rice), and a few other types of noodle dishes.

There’s a good variety of different dishes to sample, but some of the vendors do sell repeat items – like 2 or 3 vendors selling the same dish.

Best thing to do is first have a walk down to the end or the soi, see what looks the best, and then start to eat.

As a side note, towards the end of the street food stalls you’ll find a small mini-van known as Daniel Thaiger. They serve some pretty awesome looking burgers – I haven’t eaten there yet, but my buddy Dwight has.

Sukhumvit Soi 38
Small food court on right hand side

A good place to start eating is the small food court.

Located on the right hand side, about 20 meters down the road or so, with food court style seating in the back, is this famous “ยำ Yam” stall.

ยำ (Yam)
“ยำ (Yam)” – Thai salad vendor on the right hand side, good choice

My wife had said that the ” ยำ (Yam)” – Thai salad – stall was quite famous and that many Thai people recommended it, so that was our first stop.

The lady selling the som tam (ส้มตำ) here was really nice.

Suk Soi 38 Bangkok Thailand
Menus in Thai, Japanese, and English

You’ll notice that there’s often Japanese and English written on some of the menus in this area.

This area of Bangkok, around Thong Lo (ทองหล่อ) and Ekkamai, is one of the main Japanese areas of town, and many Japanese expats come to eat on Sukhumvit Soi 38.

Bangkok street food
Blue crabs waiting their turn…

She serves the full range of different Thai som tams (green papaya salads), the most popular version being som tam boo maa (ส้มตำปูม้า), or green papaya salad with raw blue crab.

This is the same dish that one of my favorite Isaan restaurants in Bangkok is named after.

Blue crab
Som tam boo maa (ส้มตำปูม้า) – Green papaya salad blue crab

The som tam boo maa (ส้มตำปูม้า) was very decent, a nice blend of fresh and crisp green papaya, pounded with chilies, long beans, tomatoes, and an entire blue crab chopped up into bite sized pieces.

The crab was soft and sweet, a little on the slimy side, and had great flavor.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to eat the crab, you could just order “som tam Thai ส้มตำไทย” – which is just the normal version of sweet and sour papaya salad with just the vegetables.

Price – 160 THB

Yam woon sen ruam talay (ยำวุ้นเส้นรวมทะเล)

We also tried yam woon sen ruam talay (ยำวุ้นเส้นรวมทะเล), a mixed seafood salad that included one of my favorite vegetables, yord mara (melon leaves).

In the mix were some de-shelled blood cockles, shrimp, pieces of squid, water mimosa, melon leaves, and glass noodles. I thought it could have used a little bit of extra lime juice, but still good.

Price – 70 THB

Yam mamuang pla krob (ยำมะม่วงปลากรอบ) – green mango salad

Equally as good as the som tam boo maa (ส้มตำปูม้า) was the yam mamuang pla krob (ยำมะม่วงปลากรอบ), a salad of shredded green mango, sliced shallots, peanuts, dry shrimp, and finally some crispy fish on the top.

The mango was a little bit ripe, so it had a nice sweet and sour taste, and the dressing added some extra zing.

I’m always a big fan of yam mamuang pla krob (ยำมะม่วงปลากรอบ), no matter what stage the mango is in.

Price – 60 THB

Some of the worst cheese-sticks I’ve ever tasted

Within the small little food court, there are about 5 street food vendors that all have menus and will, kind of aggressively, try to get you to purchase from them.

If you only want a certain dish from one stall, just kindly say no to all the other vendors and only order what you want (don’t let them make you feel obligated)!

My sister in-law ordered a plate of cheese sticks from the vendor next to the salad vendor.

They were quite terrible in my opinion (I had 1/2 a bite). Don’t think you’re about to get some gooey mozzarella sticks – these were more on the rubbery side and there was only a tiny bit of cheese in the middle.

Price – 70 THB

In this cul-de-sac you’ll find a famous Pad Thai vendor

Within the small cul-de-sac, located immediately on the right hand side of Sukhumvit Soi 38, you’ll find a few stalls, including and Japanese and Korean street food cart (I have yet to try them), and quite a famous Pad Thai vendor.

I ate at the Pad Thai here years ago, but I’m not a huge lover of Pad Thai, so I didn’t have it this time.

However, if you do love Pad Thai, you could give it a shot.

Street food stalls on the left hand side of Soi 38

With a nice satisfying base of salad in my stomach, we walked around for a few minutes and decided what to eat next.

Khao Man Gai Champ Lok (ข้าวมันไก่ แชมป์โลก)
Khao Man Gai Champ Lok (ข้าวมันไก่ แชมป์โลก) – Decent khao man gai (chicken rice)

A couple strolls down Soi 38, and I decided to sit down next for a plate of chicken and rice at  Khao Man Gai Champ Lok (ข้าวมันไก่ แชมป์โลก).

A Thai street food name with “Champ” in it, sounded pretty good to me, and though I rarely eat khao man gai, it appeared to be one of the best things to eat that evening.

Khao man gai ruam (ข้าวมันไก่รวม) – fried chicken and boiled chicken over rice

I went for the khao man gai ruam (ข้าวมันไก่รวม) a combination of both fried chicken and boiled chicken, sliced into strips, and over a pile of rice.

The rice is cooked in chicken broth, so it has a nice extra chicken-y flavor to it. What I liked about the rice was that it wasn’t overly oily as it sometimes can be.

Price – 60 THB (normal plate of chicken rice with just boiled chicken is 40 THB)

Thai chicken rice
Fried chicken and boiled chicken over rice

The chicken, wasn’t anything too high of quality, but the portion size was pretty big, and the mix of fried and boiled chicken is never a bad thing.

Chilies, garlic, ginger
Chilies, garlic, and ginger, that’s what makes it good…

What I liked most though, was the communal, all-you-can-eat, bowls of shredded garlic, ginger, and sliced chillies.

I may have gone a little overboard, filling up my sauce with the trio of ingredients, but then again, to me, khao man gai, is all about those three ingredients – even more so than the rice or the chicken!

Anyway, the khao man gai was not the best I’ve had, but it was alright, and was satisfying.

Goy See Mee
Next up…

Directly next to Khao Man Gai Champ Lok (ข้าวมันไก่ แชมป์โลก), and you can actually order and sit at the chicken rice tables, is a place that sells a couple different types of noodle dishes.

Goy See Mee (โกยซี่หมี่)

We ordered a bowl of Goy See Mee (โกยซี่หมี่), a Thai dish of yellow egg noodles and a mix of seafood in a gravy like sauce. It’s kind of similar to sen yai radna (wide rice noodles in gravy), but a little different, and this time they served it in a goong ob woon sen pot.

A few spoons of chili vinegar and chili flakes, and it was actually quite tasty.

Price – 80 THB

Sticky rice mango
Khao neow mamuang (ข้าวเหนียวมะม่วง) – Sticky rice with mango

If you have a sweet tooth, Bangkok always has you covered, and you have plenty of options of Thai sweets to sample on Sukhumvit Soi 38.

Especially during season (from March – July or so), but probably most of the year (just depends), you’ll find a couple of stalls selling khao neow mamuang (ข้าวเหนียวมะม่วง sticky rice mango), one of the most praised and well known Thai desserts.

Price – 60 THB

Mook Dow Tung (มุกเต้าทึง)
Mook Dow Tung (มุกเต้าทึง) – Right hand side of Soi 38

My wife and her sister were pretty excited to try Mook Dow Tung (มุกเต้าทึง), one of the most famous Thai dessert restaurants on the street.

It’s not so much a street food stall, but more of a shophouse, so you sit inside – but they still prepare the desserts on the side of the street.

Sukhumvit Soi 38 street food
Itim Gati Kai Kaeng (ไอติมกะทิไข่แข็ง) – Coconut Ice Cream

We ordered a bowl of Itim Gati Kai Kaeng (ไอติมกะทิไข่แข็ง), a rich bowl of coconut ice cream topped with a coating of egg (sounds a little strange, but you’ve got to try it, and with a choice of toppings).

The home-made ice cream was rich and had a nice balance of coconut, and I thought I tasted some vanilla in there, but that would not normally be typical in Thai coconut ice cream.

Nevertheless, the ice cream was excellent – I might say one of the best in Bangkok!

Price – 30 THB

Bangkok street food
Nam kang sai (น้ำแข็งใส)

The nam kang sai (น้ำแข็งใส), was also quite good.

You can order whatever items you want from the selection of goodies at the front of the restaurant. The items you choose are then covered in rich coconut cream and topped with a spoon of crushed ice.

Price – 30 THB

Tiny cups of ice tea at Mook Dow Tung (มุกเต้าทึง)

Mook Dow Tung (มุกเต้าทึง) is an excellent shop to try Thai desserts, my wife and sister in law loved it – and they, like many Thai females, love desserts!

Overall, Sukhumvit Soi 38 is a decent place to sample Thai street food, with a range of different dishes to taste, and quite a nice friendly environment.

When you come to Bangkok, among your many other food adventures, if you are in the area, Sukhumvit Soi 38 makes a good introduction to Thai street food.

Sukhumvit Soi 38 – Thai Street Food

Pros and Cons of Sukhumvit Soi 38

Open hours: 5 pm – 2 am daily (but to ensure most stalls are open, go more about 6:30 pm earliest). Also, Monday’s are street cleaning day in Bangkok, so you’ll notice less street food stalls open citywide, so if you have a choice, Monday is NOT the best day to go – some vendors may be closed.
Prices: Typical street food prices – perhaps a little bit more expensive than other areas due to location. You’ll spend about 40 – 60 THB per dish.

How to get to Sukhumvit Soi 38

Take the BTS Skytrain to Thong Lo station (ทองหล่อ). Exit #4 (you’ll see the street perpendicular to the station as you are on the skywalk), walk down the steps, then make an immediate u-turn, and you’ll be there – it’s impossible to miss.

    Hi Mark! I’m a big fan of your blog. I’m coming to Bangkok next month and was getting so excited for this street food because I’ll be staying pretty close to Thong Lor BTS station. I was sad to see the update that it has closed. However, I have seen a few conflicting reports around the internet that perhaps several of the vendors have moved somewhere (inside?) nearby. Do you happen to know anything about this? Thanks!

    Hi Mark,

    I have been reading your blogs and all of them are interesting.
    My elderly parents and I will be going to BKK next month and staying near platinum.
    Can you introduce us where should be go for our food and shopping? I am trying to plan the trip to be easy for my parents who may not be able to walk too far and climbing too much stairs.
    By the way does your BTS has lift/escalator to get up and down to the platform rather then staircase?

    Looking forward to hearing from your soon.

    Tks and regards,

    Just sitting here looking for BKK street food and I think i’ll check soi 38 out. Thank you! But mentioned that it isn’t the best street food in BKK. I guess you’re saying soi 38 is quite good, but do you have a personal favorite? Also, when I was there in 2003 someone introduced me to khung tenh. (jumping small prawns served alive.) Do you know where I could find them? Basically, we’ll be going to cambodia, with a brief 2-3 day stop in BKK. I really miss the street food there and I really want to make the few meals we’ll have there really special (local and cheap and traditional great street food). I’d be so greatful for any insight. 🙂 Happy eating and thank you in advance for your time 🙂

    Hi Mark,

    I’m armed with your guides and ready to take on Bangkok in 2 weeks! I just know I will also be making that famous ‘tasty food’ face of yours 🙂
    One thing I was wondering about, when you order, do you pay first and then sit down and wait for the food? or will someone take the order at the table? I want to get the etiquette right

    • Mark Wiens

      6 years ago

      Hey Kureshan, great to hear from you and that’s a great question. Typically you sit down at a table then the waiter / waitress will give you a menu and then your order, eat, then pay at the end. Hope you have an excellent trip, enjoy the food, and thank you.

  • Amanda

    Hey Mark,

    My boyfriend and I will be travelling to Bangkok next year and would love to eat at all the places you’ve recommended. Just a quick question: Would you say that the meat in Bangkok is relatively safe for Canadians to eat? Do you think we would be okay eating at the street places you’ve recommended?

    • Mark Wiens

      6 years ago

      Hi Amanda, thanks for reading and for the comment. Yes, the meat in Thailand is safe to eat, and typically the street food is pretty safe as well. But just make sure the meat you get is cooked fresh and still hot if possible. Hope you have a great upcoming trip!

  • Nicole Aby

    We are going to Bkk in Nov for just a short 2 nights stay. Seems like most of the famous places to eat in Bkk only open at night (5pm-6pm on wards). 1 of the night I’ll definitely come here to do a marathon too, another night probably some night market. Please~ is there anywhere we can go for lunch?

    • Mark Wiens

      6 years ago

      Hey Nicole, in the morning check out Silom Soi 20 for a nice pleasant morning market from about 7 am – 9 am, and for lunch check out the massive food court on Silom Soi 10 – just walk into the alley – this place is especially good for food on weekdays. Hope you have a great trip!

      • Nicole Aby

        6 years ago

        I went there on a Monday night. The street didn’t look like this. It was very quiet, not many stalls, no tables on the road side, we ended up in the food court area on the right. Food didn’t impressed. Very disappointed.

  • Amorn

    Worst place for street food in Bangkok. I went back to visit after 23 yrs. I asked our friends to drive us almost an hour to get there to a big disappointment. It’s fewest food stalls comparing to most any other street corners or any street food locations. Our friends laughed. No wonder the real Thai people does not understand what a big deal we made about Soi 38. Not even the taxi recognizes it as a good street food location. This article makes it out to be more than it is, in our opinion. Wasted our 2 hrs.

    • Mark Wiens

      6 years ago

      Hey Amorn, wow, you shouldn’t have driven that far to come here, you missed the point. I said it’s a good and convenient place (if you’re on the BTS) and an introduction to Thai food. If you’re looking for market street food in Bangkok, there are plenty of better places. When people visit Bangkok, not everyone has friends to take them places. That’s why Sukhumvit Soi 38 works as a convenient introduction to street food.

    To be honest when it comes to local food in Thailand, or most of S E Asia, street food wins every time. Sure, many first time travellers have been told horror stories of unhygienic establishments and stomach upsets, but in my experience from many times visiting Bangkok is sometimes there’s not much difference between a $3 meal and a $30 one!

    By the way, have you ever been to ราม2 night market?
    This is one of my favorite places to fill my stomach full.
    If you haven’t, I recommend you going there.

    “Cons: It’s not the best street food in Bangkok, and they seem to have many stalls serving the same thing – like there’s maybe 3 stalls selling khao man gai (chicken rice). Some of the food stalls cater to tourists – like the over supply of sticky rice mango – to please visitors.”

    YES! Completely agree with this assessment, Mark, and this actually why Tony & I have now struck soi 38 from our Bangkok food crawls. On our first visit to the city, we thought it was absolute heaven, but on subsequent visits, we’ve found ourselves increasingly unimpressed with the food. We’ve noticed that there isn’t very much variety, prices are a little high, and the food is ok, but nothing special. Maybe it’s just that we’ve become a lot more comfortable with Thai food now, but we find the selection of dishes here quite uninspiring and not that interesting. Definitely feels like soi 38 is catering more to “fly by night” tourists to Bangkok these days.

      Hey Steph, glad you noticed some of the same observations, and thanks for your extra input. I think Suk 38 does offer a great introduction to Thai street food, and what I really like is that many of the vendors are very friendly. Have you tried the desserts from Mook Dow Tung (มุกเต้าทึง)? They are really good.

    Hey Mark fun post! Som tom is my favorite food inBangkok and we eat it every night that we’re here(except for durian nights :P) If you haven’t tried it with unripe durian yet you should keep a look out – the durian adds a nice sweet and savory crunch.

    Great photos and thanks for the mention. I get annoyed with this place mentioned so much because so much of the food is average and about double the price it would be in any other spot in Bangkok. Good place to get started and it has improved incredibly since we first moved in here, more seating, English signs, and overall variety than a few years back.

      Hey Dwight, no problem, thanks for your input as well. Man, I’m sure I was with you the first few times I came here, and I think we were with Ali too! Still not the best place in Bangkok, but I do think it has improved as well, and it’s a good place for an introduction to street food in Bangkok!
