Bangrak Food Tasting & Culture Walking Tour
Whether you’re a foodie or just feeling hungry, eating at Bangrak’s favorite restaurants among locals and exploring its amazing street food scene is a must-do when you’re in Bangkok. Bangrak (translates to village of love) is one of the oldest neighborhoods of Bangkok where the multi-ethnicity residents lead different believes, practice unique culture, and carry on their secret recipes which are luckily offered to us at street-side restaurants and vendors. You’ll be having delicious Chinese, Muslim, traditional Thai, and Northeastern Thai or Issan dishes, all in small portions to leave room for the next stops. These Mom & Pop style restaurants have been operated for generations. They are small businesses with intimate and cozy atmosphere where you can even greet the owners themselves. Besides the restaurants, we will explore street vendors for snacks so you can get an ultimate eat-like-a-local experience. En-route, we stop at off-the-beaten-tracked iconic attractions of the neighborhood where our guide teaches you Thai cultural tips you may find useful during your stay in Thailand.

Depart from Saphan Taksin BTS Station around 9.30 and head to our first restaurant to try the neighborhood's best roasted duck rice. Next is a Muslim establishment famous among locals where you sample different kinds of dishes. From here, we have a digestion walk by leaving the main road to back streets and small alleys to visit a beautiful temple and a spectacular Catholic church. Old heritage buildings can be seen along the way. Then we cross a ferry to an Issan restaurant. Once we cross back, we taste a Thai custard bun at a bakery shop, and go to the last stop to have delicious Massaman curry with roti, and their signature coconut ice-cream to kill the heat. The tour ends near Surasak BTS Station about 1pm. Our guide can take you to the skytrain, or suggest what you can do for the rest of the day and get you a taxi.
