The alley of Sukhumvit Soi 38 is one of the best places to eat in Bangkok. Not only are there a lot of variety in food, you can also see many Thais patronizing the street food stalls. When locals patronize a place, you know that’s a sure stamp of approval.

Located just a stone’s throw away from Marriott Sukhumvit’s mesmerizing rooftop lounge, these stalls are vibrant and noisy at night, with many people milling about. Go with an empty stomach!
We’ve always heard about Saab Saab wanton mee at Pratunam, but there’s another quite famous stall here that serves pretty good wanton mee too. No queue for sure!
It’s one of the last few stalls at the end of the food street.
Dry Wanton Mee – 50 baht (about SGD 2)Wanton Mee Soup – 50 baht (about SGD 2)G & J: Each serving is about the same size as Saab Saab, but it’s 10 baht cheaper for each plate. Try both versions if you can, because each has its own attractive point. The dry version was seasoned well while the soupy version had a distinct taste of char siew and meat.
Other worthy food stalls include:
Mango Sticky RiceLocated at the front of the food street, on the right side.G & J: We don’t know what is it about the mango sticky rice in Bangkok, but the mangoes are mostly very sweet, and the glutinous rice well-cooked and clingy. The sprinkle of sweet seeds at the side made it extremely tasty with the added crunch and sugar.
Crispy Noodles Pad Thai
There are many good food stalls here to be missed. Put it in your itinerary on your next BKK trip (:
