Bangkok - Fried Fish Balls, Market Streets and Khao Moo Daeng



Our first morning in Bangkok, we rolled out of our hotel hungry. Fortunately, we found a guy frying up fish balls on a little side-street off of Yaowarat Road:



Served up hot with a sweet and spicy sauce, these were a perfect way to start the day.



At least somewhat fortified, we set off wandering around the Chinatown alleys, where all sorts of stuff was for sale.



Including a place that specialized in pork rinds - I don't think I'd ever seen this much pork rind in one place before.



Lunch was Khao Moo Daeng (red pork rice):



Three types of pork - sausage, bbq pork and pork belly, served over rice and topped with a really flavorful sauce.



The place we had it was called Si Morakot, not far from Wat Traimit (a temple housing a ginormous gold Buddha). Khao Moo Daeng is all they make, and they do it well.



The place was efficient, friendly and bustling with locals having lunch - exactly kind of spot where we love to eat.
