After moving from place to place, we thought we'd just grab dinner at the markets before heading back to the hotel. Again, it's cheap food and well, if you're anything like me, you'll be pleased to find that there's a whole range of traditional and strange dishes to try. This is what caught our eye.
Green curry fish ball noodles with a fried egg. There's also the option of a boiled egg but as the menu was in Thai, we could only do our best and point at the pictures they had up on their sign. Unfortunately, whilst you bump into any number of tourists in Thailand, English is still the second language and most vendors have a very limited command of English words - usually limited to how much something costs and what they have on their menu.

Quite common when you're eating on the street/markets, all your stalls will have an assortment of condiments and fresh greens sitting on the table for you to add to whatever you've ordered.
Coke became one of our staple drinks when we had street food - most places actually offer you free water but for some reason, the water made me nervous.
Not sure if you can see the sweat pouring down J's face but it was definitely pouring down mine and a chilled coke was definitely a life-saver (the heat is a big downside when you're eating out on the street). I can tell you know I am absolutely hopeless with heat but I suppose it was something I got used to over the three weeks that I was in Thailand. Well, when you've got to eat on the street in the boiling heat, you've got to eat on the street in the boiling heat!
Our dinner at this stall in Chatuchuk markets was definitely one of the more unique and memorable meals.
