#Thailand #streetfood #streetfood2020
From about middle of February to middle of March to middle of May, Thailand closed all sit down dining at restaurants and street food stalls, and only take-away food was permitted. But with a great campaign to reduce the spread of infection, in the middle of May 2020, Thailand re-opened its restaurants and street food stalls for sit down, dining in customers – under certain regulations and guidelines. The main rule is that it’s one person per table, unless you have some kind of a barrier on the table. And street food vendors have become very creative to have cardboard or plastic shields to divide tables.
Thai street food in 2020 – I wanted to go out and experience the social distance dining regulations in Bangkok for my self – so we my wife and I headed to Yaowarat, which is Bangkok’s Chinatown – known for its vibrant street food culture. Most street food stalls were open for evening service, but it was still very quiet compared to normal, maybe 15% of the action and energy and customers that would typically be there. Even though sit down customers are now permitted, many Thai street food stalls in Bangkok have taken to using apps for delivery.
Here are the places and food we ate:
Kuay Tiew Muay Zaa (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวหมวยซ่าาส์) – This is a noodle stall restaurant in the middle of Sampeng Market. I had never been here before, but just stopped in as it was a convenient location. I orderecd their Tom Yum Noodles (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวต้มยำ), which was pretty decently good, filled with a variety of fish balls. Ying had the yen ta fo (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเย็นตาโฟ).
Price – 40 THB (1.26 USD) per bowl
Bitter Liquid (น้ำขม)
Krua Porn La Mai (ครัวพรละมัย) – This is a legendary well known Thai street food stall in Chinatown, known for their flaming on iron skillets filled with a variety of different dishes. They set up tables with increased social distances, spacing out the tables, and with plastic sheet barriers between diners at each table. We ordered Suki (สุกี้น้ำไก่), Fried Noodles (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวคั่วไก่กรอบ), and finally Oyster Omelet (หอยทอด).
Total price – 230 THB (7.22 USD)
Pa Tong Go Savoey (ปาท่องโก๋เสวย) – Finally, we ended this Thai street food tour in 2020 with Thai Chinese style pa tong go, or youtiou savory fried dough. It was delicious, this is one of the best places, featured in the Michelin Guide. Pa Tong Go (ปาท่องโก๋) – 70 THB.
And that completes this Thai street food tour in 2020 in Bangkok, Thailand. Overall, most people wear masks, and many street food vendors have added plastic sheet shields to their cooking and food displays. Additionally, especially in busier areas of Bangkok, street food tables have a blockade between customers.
Hope you’re doing well, having a great day, and keeping safe. Thank you for your incredible support!
