Grill food in food stalls

Cookshops in Thailand:

The number of restaurants and cookshops in Thailand's metropolitan areas is very high. In the countryside, cookshops predominate. Tourists and locals alike benefit from this abundant supply. In the capital Bangkok alone, there are estimated to be up to 51,000 cookshops. They can be found on every "street corner". They are popular with tourists because they offer a wide range of food and are good value for money. For 1 € you get a Thai delicacy that would cost many times more in Europe. You get fresh seafood very cheaply. The cookshops are very simply equipped and set up to save space. A few small tables and chairs made of plastic, wood or metal stand by the street or on the pavement. Here you can sit down and eat a snack while enjoying the colourful culture.

Can tourists eat there?

Yes, you can, even if there are many opinions that contradict each other. The dishes of the good cookshops are very tasty and the quality is very good. Most of the food is fried, roasted or boiled in hot fat.

Beverages:

There is always water on the tables, which you can usually drink for free. Drinks are available in all variations and are usually stocked in large coolers directly at the cookshop. If the cookshop doesn't have the drink, we quickly buy it at the next 7 Eleven, which is represented at many places. Alcohol is usually only available there after 5 pm.

Our recommendation :

It is possible to get an idea of the freshness and quality beforehand. Take a look at the dishes and how they are prepared. The ingredients are laid out in the displays and are visible to everyone. You can clean the cutlery beforehand with a napkin and water; water and cloths are usually on the table. If many locals take their food at the cookshop and the cookshop is constantly frequented, you can also enjoy the food. You should always bear in mind that things are not always hygienic in German restaurants and snack bars and that something can always happen.

Here is a small selection of the most common dishes. The English, German and Thai pronunciation is directly below the picture.
