must eat and drink in chatuchak market

Chatuchak Market, also known as Jatujak or JJ Market situated on Kamphaeng Phet 2 Road, is the largest market in Thailand. It has more than 8000 stalls, separated into 27 sections.

Apart from being the place to go for good shopping bargains, it is a food haven too! From the famous coconut ice cream to chicken noodles, there is bound to be something to satisfy your tastebuds!

1. Coconut Ice Cream

At only 35 baht (approx. SGD1.50), you get a scoop of rich coconut ice cream along with 2 toppings of your choice (sticky rice, nata de coco, peanut, corn or atap chee etc). Some stalls provide complimentary coconut juice too! Definitely a must-try at Chatuchak Market!

2. Noodle Soup with Chicken

Chatuchak Chicken Noodles Soup

We spotted this stall that sell Chicken noodles soup by chance when we were in search of something to fill ourselves with. Judging by the fact that most of its customers are locals, I knew we were in for a treat and I was right! The herbal soup base is rich and tasty while the chicken is very tender! And guess what? It is only 50 baht (approx. SGD2.01) per bowl!

While I'm usually not a fan of roasted pork, I must say that the roasted pork from this stall at Chatuchak market is really good! It is crispy, juicy and very flavourful. Apart from roasted pork, we got some chicken wings and ngoh hiang as well. The chicken wings are very fragrant and crispy, so much so that you can hear the crunch when you bite into it. But what completes it is the chilli it is paired with. It might be a tad too spicy for those whom can't take spiciness but trust me, you will find the stinging of your tastebuds worthwhile. 

Tip: These fried snacks is charged according to weight. A pack like the above costs 140 baht (approx. SGD5.70).

4. Pork Satay

Another good thirst quencher in Chatuchak Market is fresh orange juice. These green-colored oranges are so sweet! Sweeter than the normal orange-colored oranges we have back at home.

We were shopping at Chatuchak Market till about 7pm when we heard something being played and everyone around us just stopped in their tracks which we followed suit. After which, I realised that it was the Thai national anthem being played! This goes to show the Thais have remarkable respect for their country!
