Bangkok has been touted as an Asian food paradise, a reputation it works hard to hold onto, and, according to many, succeeds in doing so, with more new foodie-attracting experience to the food scene every year. There are many options for those looking for that special food experience to sate their needs, with seaside seafood at Nonthaburi, to a rooftop bar in Sukhumvit, even Chinatown attracting food enthusiasts with their own spin on Thai cuisine.
With so many choices and many places to visit, it comes as no surprise that many people come to Bangkok for the food and the experience. If you’re looking to get a bite of Bangkok’s food scene, here are some places to visit.
- Sundowner at Rooftop Bars – Vertigo Grill and Moon Bar
- Bangkok is a city of many high rises, so rooftop bars offer a great way to drink in Bangkok whilst enjoying a delicious meal. One good example is the rooftop bar in Sukhumvit, the Above Eleven. Other options include the Vertigo Grill and Moon Bar at the Banyan Tree, as well as the Lebua, which was featured in the Hangover 2. Panoramic view, good fresh grilled food. For those who want to enjoy a bit of dancing, some rooftop bars turn up the music.
- For those hoping to experience Chinatown, dedicate an entire day for it with so much to do. Bangkok’s Chinatown is seen as one of the largest in the world. The mix-up of Chinese and Thai culture is most evident at this part of the city, with authentic food cooked by street-side vendors. Additionally, there’s old architecture, as well as the world’s largest gold Buddha.
- The 22-Course Indian Meal at Gaggan
- The Gaggan restaurant is owned and operated by Chef GagganAnand, and was listed in the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards and World’s Best Restaurants Awards, as #1 and #7, respectively. Needless to say, it’s definitely a must visit. There’s no menu, with only a list of emojis to give its customers a clue of what to expect when they sit down for a meal. The 22-course menu has a lot of offer, and you can meet the head chef himself.
