With the rise of reputation from the recognition and awards of Micheline and restaurant guides of such, the Thailand’s culinary image has been a controversial but it is inevitable that it’s indeed brought much limelight to the street food as well. Long feted as a street food paradise, Bangkok is leading and endowed with such powerful magnet. It is a city that has long attracted, and continues to attract, migrants from across Asia and beyond. As a result, its cuisine – but in particular the street food – blends countless influences that make it what it is. And being a neighbour country, we share similar ingredients and spices and the love of spicy food. It’s fairly safe to say that Thai restaurants are abundant within Klang Valley itself but on that fires the flavour of the street of Bangkok is few to come by. Jatujak @ Siam Bangkok Street Food is one that is showing much effort to continuously provide the authentic profile of Thai street selections but to protect the interest of Thai street connoisseur, I must say that it’s not as good as what I had in Bangkok last month. That being said, I love the heavy and intense spicy and acid in the pork knuckle Tom yum soup and the barbeque pork skewers with a fair ratio of both leaner meat and layering fat on between it. I’m impressed with how paku pucuk isnt “not available” like most Thai eateries I’ve been, as well as how the menu has 80 percent of all the street food in Thailand one can think off.
