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.
