Meat skewers are great for eating on the go so you can continue doing your shopping while snacking at the same time. You will find a variety of such stalls at Rot Fai Market Ratchada.

If you are pressed for time, skip the popular stalls at the night market and give these stalls a chance. You may just find something better instead!
It is impossible to resist getting some crepes because they look so delicious! With most crepe stalls offering both savoury and sweet delights, getting a crepe at Rot Fai Market Ratchada is something you must not skip.
