The wok master closest to Sukhumvit has been written up in several publications for his Pad Thai and other dishes.
Sukhumvit Soi 38
Carts start setting up after 6 pm; restaurants earlier
, Local Traditional
When the sun goes down, the food carts come out. This night market near Thonglor offers a number of local favorites from pad Thai
, noodle soup, krapow moo sap
, and grilled meats, to smoothies and mango and sticky rice. Prices are local (cheap) and depending on what your there to eat, you might have to wait in line. There are places to sit on plastic stools and metal tables. The mango and sticky rice is notable as is anything done up in the flaming wok cart near the entry to the soi. That particular cook typically shows up last of all the vendors, often just after 8 pm. His assistants set up everything and wait from about 7 pm on. Put your order in before he gets there; the list gets long fast. There are no restrooms. However, you can ask kindly at one of the several open storefront restaurants. You ought to buy a little something in that case -- a drink, appetizer, or the like. These places are also good for eating and the wait is generally a little shorter and more seats are available. Take the Skytrain to Thonglor Station and the entrance to Soi 38 is right under the station on the south side of Sukhumvit (opposite the well known Thonglor Street).
