Where To Eat

Where to eat in Bangkok

Here’s a map of the places I ate at (or wanted to eat at but didn’t make it to) when I was in Bangkok recently.

The food is excellent in Bangkok. Some things you MUST do:

  1. Night market street food: either explore on your own or book a food tour with an experienced guide who will know the best vendor for all the most popular dishes, such as mango sticky rice

  2. Mall food courts: the food at them is to die for and it’s such an easy way to try a ton of Thai dishes in a really clean and comfortable environment

  3. High-end Thai food, at either Nahm or Bo.lan

  4. Floating market: you’ll have to hunt for really good dishes but the whole experience, though super touristy, is really comical and fun

Just be prepared for (1) hella traffic, probably the worst I’ve ever experienced and (2) a culture where it feels like a lot of people are trying to scam money out of tourists, particularly taxi drivers.

Where to eat in Hoi An

Vietnamese cuisine varies by region, so it was fun eating a lot of the dishes I had in Hanoi again in Hoi An and seeing how differently they’re prepared.

The Hoi An places I tried are below, with my favorites being Morning Glory, Banh Mi Tam Hoa (sells out by 10 AM), Vy’s Market, and Pho Xua. I’m sad I didn’t get to try Com Ga Ba Buoi because every time I swung by they weren’t open yet or were already closed. I bet I would’ve loved it there.

Most of the restaurant cluster you see in the map are in the Hoi An Old Quarter. I wish I had booked an AirBnB or hotel walking distance from that area because I pretty much hung out there the whole time I was in Hoi An. None of the restaurants I saw by the beach looked good to me.

Where to eat in Hanoi

I had the best time eating and drinking in Hanoi, Vietnam for 5 days. Since so many of you who followed along on our Instagram stories requested that I share a list of where I went, here’s the Google Map I used to get around Hanoi. I ate at most but not all of these places. The list also includes a few gyms and tourist attractions, but I’d use this list for the food bookmarks.

BTW, all of my Vietnam Instagram stories are saved on the Highlights of our Instagram profile page: https://www.instagram.com/gomethodology/
