Sukhumvit Soi 38 offers a great initiation into Thai street food. Located only a few steps from the BTS at Thong Lor, it is a real contrast with the smarter restaurants that line Sukhumvit Road. Here you will eat on the street at a wobbly metal table with cars dodging the carts and stalls that line the road and the occasional friendly soi dog jogging by looking hopefully for some scraps. Open from 18:00 until the early hours of the morning, there are plenty of eating options along this busy street. The food is tasty, cheap and arrives quickly, and most menus are in English making it easy to make your choice. Unlike some street food stalls, those on soi 38 are pretty hygienic and the ingredients are fresh – an extra plus point!
