Yaoworat Road in Bangkok is the HEART of Bangkok Chinatown – home to some of the BEST Street Food in the world, some even with Michelin Stars! In this video, I visit Bangkok Chinatown for the FIRST TIME at night. We have lived in Thailand for 5 months now, with over a month of that in Bangkok – and we never went!
I try my FIRST EVER Tom Yum Goong, a traditional Thai Dessert, and something unique I have never seen before. There are also plenty of Street Performers and Buskers on Yaoworat Road, just adding to the atmosphere at this amazing and iconic Thai Street Food scene!
After stepping out on to Yaoworat Road from the hotel, I could feel the Street Food energy and vibe – truly, there is nowhere else like this on the planet when it comes to Street Food and Food Culture – just amazing!

  1. I just found you the other day your adorable love watching but sweety don’t eat shark fin it’s cruel they cut off the fins and throw the rest of the shark away 😢

  2. Hi Josie, I am a Thai student who is studying in Melbourne. I have been watching your vlogs and I miss Thailand so much. Btw, you guys are so sweet and I love the vibes in your videos. 🙂

  3. dont eat sharlpk fin soup … you can hv fish maw soup (kra-por-pla) instead (normally sell at the same restaurant with the same soup base, but not as cruel)

  4. พวกคุณน่ารักมากค่ะทำคลิปเกี่ยวกับเมืองไทยที่ดูแล้วสนุกทุกครั้งที่ฉันดูคลิปพวกคุณ​ฉันก็เป็นคนไทยคนหนึ่งที่ดูแล้วชอบมากๆค่ะ​ ทำต่อไปนะคะจะคอยติดตามค่ะ☺️💖💖

  5. Hi can anyone tell me where in Chinatown Bangkok to get the BEST garlic lo Mein well hopefully anywhere in Bangkok has good noodles like China 🇨🇳
    And I’m wondering if they sell walnut shrimp with the broccoli and pineapple?
    I’m also wondering And I hope not all of Bangkok sells fake ramen noodles 🙄🙄I like real noodles as in “fresh”

  6. Spicy tolerance can train. You will be better and better but you need to eat spicy often. My 8 years son can eat KFC spicy chicken with no problem now.

  7. The prices in Yaowaraj is just high relative to much of BKK. That's just because of the popularity of the food in the area I believe. Simple economics then, high demand gets you high prices. But to be fair, the Tom Yum Gung Soup you got for THB 120.00 is lower than actual restaurant prices in much less popular parts of town.

  8. Shark Fin Soup is delicious, but to be frank, I could do without the shark fin and it would taste similar (to my palate) to Egg Drop Soup after seasoning it with vinegar. I have to admit, I was eyeing the Roast Duck though. That looked beautiful!!!

  9. ร้านขายหมูสะเต๊ะน่าจะแนะนำให้ชาวต่างชาติกินขนมปังปิ้งจิ้มกับน้ำจิ้มถั่ว เขาจะคุ้นเคยมาก เพราะรสชาดจะใกล้เคียงกับขนมปังกับเนยถั่วที่เขาค้นเคย แต่จะมีกลิ่นของเครื่องเทศที่เป็นไทยๆ

  10. Every vendor in Chinatown must be good otherwise their business wouldn't survive. If you plan to stay in Thailand longer, it is in your best interest to increase your tolerance to spiciness 🙂 Have fun and Thanks for the videos.

  11. In terms of the shark fin and the bird's nest, both, I believe, would be on the pricier side when compared to the street food in and around the Yaowarat area. You'd basically be paying for the experience of eating those items. They're indulgences…delicacies even, mainly for their textures. They aren't your everyday choices…what a local might get because he's lazy to cook dinner. That said…they are good and have their merit. Shark fin is invariably prepared in soup, a kind of thicker broth. The fin itself is chopped up into thin strands and isn't recognizably "shark fin." It's a bit gelatinous and crunchy but, all in all, kind of neutral tasting. The bird's nest is usually served in soup as well. I have less experience with this. Although, I believe the bird's nest itself is gelatinous but with a gooey characteristic too as well as being crisp and pliable. There's another dish that goes by the moniker "bird's nest." It actually looks like a bird's nest, is crispy and fried, with stir fried vegetables nestled within it. But, I don't think that's the "bird's nest" that's being sold in Bangkok's Chinatown.

  12. Welcome to Bangkok ka, If you like thai food, I think you should also go Talat Phlu (ตลาดพลู), there are many various street foods, desserts and snacks, the famous dessert is Thai Crispy Pancake (Kanom Buang), will see the train view near coconut ice cream store and I would say your vlogs its so kindly, that make me want to go yaowarat.

  13. Yaowarat foods average price quite on the expensive side, if you want good foods and have times to stroll around, try go to Bang Rak. Prajak roasted duck (don't forget to try crab fried rice too), Joke Prince (congee), etc.
