all these above photos where taken by me in MAY--06 when i visited Bangkok
In bangkok you dont have to worry about a quick bite at any time of the day. You will find food vendors with fresh and ready food at every nook and corner and all along the street.
There are a large variety of fruits in Bangkok which we cannot taste in india , i tasted the yellow watermelon in Bangkok, i found the papaya and the pineapple to be very sweet , juicy and in plenty .
As you walk along the street you will find food being cooked on small carts right from morning, where people line up for breakfast. Lunch and dinner is also available on these small carts and its common to see people sitting around a table on the street and having their meal.
Thai cooking, especially the street food seems to be the "throw together" style of cooking that allows room for creativity . you see people ordering for soups with various combinations , you can see it in the picture above , the lady mixing her concoctions into a bowl according to her customers recommendations.
i felt that Bangkok was a great place for food lovers like me who not only like to eat but to observe and see the locals deal with their food. My visit was very short , just three days and not enough to satisfy the foodie in me , maybe i will get an opportunity again to browse through and relish the food of Bangkok.
