Just recently, news has been going around about a stall at Golden Mile Tower that specialises in a popular Thai dish called Leng Saap. Since then, the internet has been splattered with pictures of a gargantuan mountain of pork and everyone has been scrambling to try this Instagram-worthy pile of meat.
Leng Saap essentially translates to ‘Spicy Pork Bone Soup’ and it basically consists of giant portions of pork ribs and spine that are generously doused in a rich and addictively spicy broth as well as plenty of lime, coriander and chilli.
We’ve tried the one at Golden Mile Tower and were instantly hooked, so naturally, when we were in Bangkok, we HAD to try the original to see how it measured up. And boy, were we impressed.
You can’t say that you’ve been to Bangkok unless you’ve experienced their night market scene. Bangkok is home to a plethora of markets that sell anything and everything that you could need; from food to the latest fashion trends to services like manicures and perms, they’ve got you thoroughly covered.
If you don’t have much time to go night market hopping in Bangkok, the one market you need to head to to get the full experience is the famous Talad Rot Fai Srinakarin, which is also known as Rot Fai Train Market. There are a number of similar train markets across Bangkok but this is one of the bigger ones.
This market is a little out of the way from central Bangkok but we promise you that the journey is completely worth it.
