Bangkok - In search of Kanom Krok vendors

Joe MacBu Sep 18, 2008 11:43 PM

I'll be in BKK for 4 days in October. I'll mostly be eating at street vendors and markets. I want to make sure that I get a few dozen kanom kroks in my belly. Who make the best ones (and where exactly are they located)?

    My favorite is Kanom Kroc Lopburi, located inside Chatuchak Weekend Market.
    It's a little different than most; it's green!
    Although the cart moves around a little, it's basic location is where the cart is on this map:

      Do you know what makes them green?
      They look fabulous! Thanks.

        Not sure; they're a bit saltier than most.

        If you want to try them, note that she is only there Saturday and Sunday, during the weekend market operation.

      Not a street vendor or market atmosphere, but the food floor at the Emporium usually has kanom krok. There's another big mall that has a great sweets section, and they not only have kanom krok but also kanom ba-bin. If only I could remember which mall it was...somewhere along Sukhumvit (like that narrows it down...).

        I think the green ones use pandan (ใบเตย).

          I am salivating over all these talk of khanom krog. I have this knack of eating two at one go - just invert one over another & form this oval "sandwich" :-)
