The shopping malls are overrated. The girls have too much makeup and plastic on. And the river? It's so filthy that you can't baptize anyone in it. Instead, it is the river that needs baptizing.

The food in Bangkok, however, is world-class.

The flavors, the heat, and all the involuntary perspiration from your body when you eat in Bangkok is worth the flight and airfare. Screw bacons and donuts - Thai food is the real deal.

I must have had at least five meals each day when I was there. The sweltering heat, the bustling streets and the profuse aroma of spices in the air are what made this city so special. You don't really love it, but you definitely can't hate it either. Dining in this city is an exceptional gastronomic experience. Hence, it must have been a dream come true for foodies when they discovered Sukhumvit Soi 38, the mother of all Bangkokian street food spots.

Please bring me back!

Despite being discussed elaborately in travel forums, Sukhumvit Soi 38 is still delightfully free from tourists. Finding it is a breeze - you will not be able to miss it once you get out of Thong Lor BTS. Alternatively, just follow the smell!

Yes, those are frogs. And no, I did not try it.

Sukhumvit Soi 38 Bangkok

Rice, noodles, rice noodles, hot broths and meats of any existing animal. Maybe even a few cans of Leo or Chang to further enhance your dining experience in Bangkok.

Food stalls are open from 6 p.m. till late night (apparently it is a popular spot for local teenagers after clubbing hours so now you know where to go to see attractive Thais in skimpy dresses) and prices are around 60 baht for most of the dishes.

Have fun hunting for food!
