“My favorite place to eat, for now at least, is a nightstand in Bangkok near the Ratchathewi BTS stop on Petchburi Road,” KC says. “They open around six or seven every night, and set up shop all across the sidewalk for a good half-block or so. They specialize in various seafood dishes, but I always have to order a full steamed fish—it’s out of control good. Everything there is on point, from the Tom Yum Goong to the papaya salads, and it has a good local atmosphere, real lively. It’s usually my first stop when I touch down in BKK. There are actually three different spots lined up in a row on the same sidewalk, but they are all good. I just prefer the one closest to the corner, but you can’t go wrong wherever you find a seat.”
