One of the highlights of our trip to Bangkok must be visiting the Chinatown known as Yaowarat. The trip wasn't the best or ideal in any ways because it was raining pretty much the whole day (to be exact it was raining non-stop for two days straight) - the Yaowarat road was muddy, traffic was heavy, and we had to be really careful when navigating around the areas. But nonetheless, we did manage to find and sample some of the best street foods Bangkok has to offer including the most famous Yaowarat Toasted Bread (more on this below).
Our trip began after finishing our early dinner at Pad Thai Thip Samai – The Legendary Pad Thai in Bangkok in Maha Chai Road. We did arrive half an hour after the restaurant opened only to find a super long queue and could easily be a 45 minutes wait before we get a table let alone waiting for our foods to arrive. It was a tough decision either to skip and go straight to Chinatown or to wait here and join million other people in the quest of finding the best Pad Thai in Bangkok. At the end of the day, we decided to wait at the expense of delaying our visit to the Chinatown. At first, we thought it will be a short walk to Chinatown since a lot of people are saying this restaurant is around Chinatown area, but we kid you not it is just a shy 25 minutes - 1.9Km walk. Can't be bothered walking, we decided to catch a 'Tuk-Tuk' that cost us around 150THB (~ $6 AUD), which we believe to be expensive by Bangkok standard, but the rainy condition made it super worth it.
Our 'Tuk-Tuk' driver dropped us just in the heart of Chinatown where we spotted groups of people eating seafood, one of the popular food destinations in the area. T&K Seafood is arguably one of the famous seafood restaurants here (you can easily spot the staffs in green t-shirts) although there are other smaller options as well, they were not too busy compared to T&K. But we were here not a full-size dinner after our big meals at Pad Thai Thip Samai, we rather looked for smaller bite-size snacks and desserts. Being in Yaowarat, there are plenty of good food selections available at your disposals.
