So I’m just going down the escalators here at the Emquartier shopping mall and I’m going to give you a little tour through the food court down here so as you come down this escalator there’s a couple of sets of escalator you get to this end of the food court which would probably remind you of a food court where you’re from down over here you have like the typical fast food KFC, Burger King, McDonald’s and yeah Ronald’s doing the “Wai” this is a great shop I would recommend farm factory they have a whole bunch of healthy salads healthy food options and that’s a really good option but as you walk this way you start to come across all these little restaurants there’s a little Korean restaurant over there a Thai restaurant some of them are pretty tasty back here more typical stuff Subway you got a whole shop serving up nothing but mangoes but I’m gonna recommend that you walk through this shop if you want to just get a little more local Thai food if you’re in Bangkok and you love street food but sometimes it’s too hot out there and you want to get in to like an air-conditioned spot where you can enjoy really good quality local Thai food at reasonable prices head down here to the foot of that escalator and you’ll come across what’s called the “Quartier Food Hall” here’s a tip for you if you have a rabbit card you can use the rabbit card to pay for your food here you can also use it on the BTS that’s probably the reason you’d have the rabbit card and if you don’t have a rabbit card you’re going to need to get one of these a lot of these stalls over here don’t take cash so there’s a lot of good options here a lot of local Thai options Haelee likes this little vegetarian spot where you can pick two dishes with some rice or something like that there’s a good little Indian spot some nice Chinese noodles a whole bunch of great stuff in here and I’m gonna go for a little Thai omelet with Thai chilies and fried chicken inside I ended up getting a Thai omelet but he folds it over a thin layer of egg over what I got in the middle was chicken and of course they put some nice Thai chilies with it a lot of nice Thai flavor they give you extra chili they give you some rice but let’s just load up a whole spoonful and see how it tastes.

Oh wow!! that is a tasty bite it’s 95 baht so it’s not as cheap at this food court as over at terminal 21. I’ve probably left a pin over there too because you’re going to want to hit some of Thailand’s food courts for sure and make sure you get over to the Thai side it’s like having street food in the middle of air conditioning so there’s probably a few pins in this area in this shopping mall it’s right at prom pong BTS station and it’s worth a visit so the Thai chicken was nice and if you want a really good treat at the end of it come and find this cart here this thing’s lined up in Chinatown they have these little soft bread rolls with like different fillings I get the milk flavor but you can get whatever flavor you like and that’s it that is the Emquartier food court down here in the bottom level of him of Emquartier it’s a little bit more expensive than say terminal 21 but I probably left a pin over there as well so go check that out!


Additional Information

Bangkok, Thailand has some of the most epic shopping anywhere on earth. Many of these massive mall complexes would put their counterparts in Europe or North America to shame. The Holy Grail of Bangkok shopping is IconSiam. This is a newly built architectural masterpiece located right on the east side of the Chao Praya river across from central Bangkok. It has anything and everything that you could think of. Whether you’re looking to purchase something from a luxury brand like Gucci, Chanel, Fendi, Rolex, etc. or simply want a basic Tee from Uniqlo, this place has it all. You can even buy a Ferrari right in the mall if you’re looking to spend some serious coin. There’s also an epic food court on the ground level of IconSiam which features all sorts of tasty Thai treats that you can get at street food prices. One thing that’s actually quite common across many Bangkok shopping centres is to have at least one or two food courts that act more like Thai markets than they do a typical eating area. The food in these areas are both tasty and cheap. The reason that these exist is because the developers or owners of these massive shopping complexes want to drive as much foot traffic as possible inside of their real estate. So, they give significant rent breaks to the vendors that would normally have to compete for space in an outdoor market. What ends up happening is that residents find a specific vendor or restaurant that they like, and make it a weekly routine to go and enjoy some food from that specific location, inside of whatever mall it exists in. The food courts inside of these malls actually become attractions on their own, resulting in more foot traffic inside of the mall.
