Finding great food isn’t difficult in Bangkok. But if you want to find the most delicious places to eat, then this food guide will lead you to twelve of the best restaurants, street food stalls, markets, and food tours in Bangkok.
Like many of its neighboring countries, there’s a clear Indian and Chinese influence to Burmese cuisine. There seem to be strong regional identities as well.
