CNN names Bangkok “Number One in the World” for street food
BANGKOK: — Bangkok has been named the number one place on earth to enjoy street food.
The accolade comes from the American news giant CNN in a latest survey. The City of Angels has ousted Tokyo as the best place to enjoy eating out by the roadside, reported Thairath.
The Thai capital beat 22 other cities to the title with CNN saying that no matter what time of the day it was possible to find good value, hearty, and well prepared meals in Bangkok.
They singled out the morning treats of Nam Taohoo and lunchtime delight of Khaw Man Kai as real favorites of Thais and tourists alike.
Tokyo still got a special mention for having a huge number of Michelin stars in its fancy restaurants as well as great budget street food.
Rounding out the top ten were the following cities:
5. New Orleans
7. Honk Kong
and 10. Marrakech in Morocco.
