Food has long been a major component of Bangkok’s appeal. Fortunately the food paradise of the world doesn’t just consist of Thai food. From Fine dining to street food, the finest ingredients, exciting composition, beautiful settings and impeccable service. Production houses here can find that this is what makes the food here so tasty and looks as good as its advertising. Restaurants in Bangkok have always treated people in video production awesomely.
Local Street Food
Being known as the king of street food, food carts are around every corner. This is the soul of Bangkok as street food is the cheapest and quite possibly as the most delicious meals you can find in the world. Permitted you know which one to go to. Cheap foods like this, apart from the usual 7/11, Lawson 108 or Family Mart convenience stores, aren’t always on the street. There are also indoor and outdoors where one can sit, eat and enjoy a nice beer with friends or colleagues along with a variety of BBQ meats with sticky rice, seafood, exotic noodles, and even Thai salads. Food for thought, some of the best Thai food can be found in the humblest of shophouses and street side stalls. With that in mind if you’re a hungry director it’s always good to follow big crowds.
Mid Range Restaurants
Between luxurious dining and street food, the middle is just as good if not better. Restaurants are all over the city with a delicious taste of Thai, Japanese or Western food. Keep in mind that Western food might not always taste like home but it is sure near it, if not with a twist. Bangkok makes sure its hospitality is absolutely flawless for foreigners. Which is why there are so many cafes and affordable international restaurants people can go to if Thai food isn’t really in their palette. Plenty of Bangkok restaurants have been featured in multiple social media pages that many people love including the Thai locals. Not to mention Bangkok has been forming a very well established foreign cuisine. This is thanks to the myriad of expats and immigrants bringing the tastes of home. Most notable are Indian, Japanese, Korean and Middle Eastern as well as small authentic Mexican restaurants. If you’re vegan, have no fear, a lot of restaurants offer vegan options some who adapt signature Thai dishes.
Aside from the reputed Thai cuisine, there is an astounding range of upscale International cuisine. They offer meals by chefs from all around the world. Dishes from European delicacies such as French fine dining courses and steakhouses to more oriental touches such as Japanese omakase courses and of course a fine dining approach to the local cuisine. When it comes to food, Bangkok is a one dish hot pot. One of the most notable things to look out for are the unique fusion resturants. Often blending multiple different sensations to bring you a truly exceptional experience. Many chefs in bangkok transcend making food, and aim to cater a unique experience.
