You think Thai food is spicy? Then may the gods have mercy on your tongue when you try southern Thai food. At Wang Lang market next to Siriraj Hospital, there is an unusually high number of southern Thai food vendors. Lined up on the south side of Phran Nok road, these vendors will melt your face off with fiery curries. Grab a bucket of ice, grab a seat, and steel your stomach.

People often wonder why there’s more street southern Thai cuisine here than anywhere. One theory as to why this might be the case is that a nearby railway station used to be the gateway into Bangkok for southern Thais. They arrived and never left the locale.

In any case, once you are done testing the your spice tolerance level, wander around and pick up other meals, snacks and sweets. Wang Lang market is a foodie’s paradise and an affordable one to boot. No wonder students from Thammasat University often take the boat from across the river to fill their tummies.
