Late Night Eateries in Bangkok

Where I’m from, you grab a kebab or pizza on the way home after a night out drinking. In Bangkok, things work a bit different. Here, it’s common to stop by a streetside restaurant and order several dishes before going home.

Food is a central part of Thai culture, and unlike us in the west, Thai people don’t order one plate that belongs to you; they order the same number of dishes as the number of people in the group and share it together.

It’s also about balancing the meal — curry, meat or fish, stir-fried vegetables, and soup is a typical mix that stimulates all of your taste buds with saltiness, sweetness, sourness, and heat.

There are plenty of late night eateries in Bangkok with some open until 4 a.m. and even 24 hours as they are expecting party animals to come and eat (most of the bars and clubs are closing at 2 a.m.)
