We recently spent three weeks eating our way around South East Asia. We have sorted through our thousands of photos to bring you our favourite Thai hawker and restaurant food in Bangkok.

Our first proper meal after landing was, of course, the tourist staple, Pad Thai.

Rice noodles, with veggies, chicken and tofu, flavoured with lime and tamarind and topped with egg. When served at a cheap plastic table in the middle of a bustling market for only 50 baht ($1.60), it doesn't get much better for street food.

For 15 baht (45c) we could get an ice cold Pepsi,

A visit to the Suan Lum Night Bazaar for some hawker food.
Iced tea with lime and fresh fruit shakes, pineapple and watermelon. I lived on these! A huge chunk of fruit, ice and a squeeze of lime blended together into a refreshing drink.
