While combing Yaowarat street for good food, this scene caught our attention. When people congregate like this around a stall, it's usually a sign of good food ;-p
We braved the Yaowarat street traffic and crossed the road over to the stall. It's a simple street side stall selling toast bread and buns.
The toast bread stall is just across the road from the famous T & K Seafood Restaurant and in front of the pink signboard of the Government Savings Bank.
The toast bread and buns are freshly grilled over charcoal.
Ordering is easy. There are butter-sugar, butter-condensed milk, butter-egg fillings with chocolate, condensed milk and even sweet chilli toppings. Just write down the type of bun, fillings and toppings that you want at the front of the stall and hand over the slip of paper to the staff.
Then, stand back into the milling crowd and wait for your queue number to be called. Waiting time is about 10-15 minutes.
Seth (of Sethlui.com) bought a box of two of these buns for BT18 (SGD 0.70) to try. I wasn't too eager when Seth bought the buns as we were already very full with more food to taste, so why squander precious stomach space on bread?
The bun with chocolate topping and butter-sugar filling had the usual sweetness. But, what struck me was the bun's very delightful crispy soft chewy type of mouthfeel which is new to me. It's a lovely snack. I
Thanks Seth! For one of the best food finds of this Bangkok trip.
If you are in Yaowarat, give this unique toast bread and bun a try.
It's funny that in the land of amazing and exquisite Thai cuisine, I have to say that this simple toast bread is a Must Try in Bangkok.
