Food Plus, Siam Square, Bangkok

Bangkok, Food Plus, Siam Square

Great little lane that joins Soi 5 and Soi 6 down in Siam Square. A stretch of long tables runs down this section of the sheltered alley with food stalls flanking both sides of those tables. Food is cheap and catered to the working crowd in the vicinity with petite sized meals can be had for as little as 50 baht. 

Bangkok, Food Plus, khao kha moo

More khao kha moo can be found here. This had leaner meat that wasn't directly from the knuckle. Delicious too if I may say. 

Bangkok, Food Plus, duck offal rice noodles

And a stall that serves a tasty and umami braised duck rice noodles in soup. It came with gizzards, fish balls and addition portions of duck blood curds. The flavour was crisp and clear. I'd eat this again in a heartbeat.

Bangkok, Food Plus, hok mok

A side of a lemon grassy hok mok (Thai otah), fried egg and stir fried bitter gourd.

Bangkok, Food Plus, chicken rice

And chicken rice that is served with deep fried meat from the thigh. This was as the whole pretty good in spite of the fact that the rice was in no way on par in terms of flavour with the one at Siam Paragon.

Bangkok, Food Plus, coffee

The surprising find in this street food stretch was one of two coffee stalls that sold coffee brewed from freshly ground beans. The beans were measured and then ground by to order, brewed from a machine and flavoured with evaporated milk. It puts the regular brew at Starbucks to shame. Don't just take my word for it, try it for yourself.
