Previously I Backpacked to Bangkok from the 1-5 November 2013 , we decided to arrange our own schedules, hotel bookings as well.
We stayed in one of the backpacker hostels “Lucky House” in the Khaosan Road area with room rates of approximately USD 7 per night for 2 people with bathroom inside. The price was including wifi. The hotel is quite satisfying, the employees are friendly and the hostel is clean . If u wanna book, you can immediately see the link below:
The only difficulty is to find halal food in Bangkok. Some of blogs that I visit rarely mention the location of halal food in Bangkok. Therefore, I try to share to you guys, some halal food places that I met there.
Around the Grand Palace and Wat Arun Temple
Some restaurant that I visited, all serves pork. Some merchants do not understand English so that they do not understand if I say “No Pork”. My advice, use the word “Mu” which means pork. Some of halal food around the Grand Palace as:
1. Grilled Squid (80 baht), located in front of the station Tha Tien Pier, boat station for the crossing to Wat Arun. In addition to squid, there was prawns too.
2. Pad Thai, not all of pad thai is halal, I only found one place behind the seller grilled squid, at Tha Tien Pier boat station.
3. Coconut ice cream, the ice cream that given a coconut container. The ice cream is also made of young coconut.
4. Fried Chicken with Sticky Rice, the food we found after walking around looking for of halal food. I think that this is the most delicious fried chicken I’ve ever eaten despite its hard sticky rice . / wahaha
Around Khaosan Road
Around Khaosan Road there was a few places of halal food, if you want to look for, you will surely find of halal food places 🙂
1. KFC, that is less evident, if you are unsure merchants use lard or not, it is better avoided.
2. Beef Noodle (40 baht), located in the Moslem Food, at the end of the road Khaosan Road. Besides beef noodle, this restaurant also provides other menus, such as nasi briyani. The restaurant is small like a regular street hawkers, but do not see from the size of the restaurant, their beef noodle was really yummy anyway 🙂
3. Turkey Kebab (60 Baht), well that is quite easy to find, and tasty too. It’s different with a kebab in Indonesia. You should try it!
4. New Taj Mahal, Indian Halal Restaurant, prices at this restaurant quite expensive. Not a street hawkers. The location of this restaurant on the street next to Khaosan Road, a bit in the middle, but I forget exactly, hahaa .. Here provides various types of Indian food. Curry was obviously the main menu yaaa .. 🙂
In Chatuchak, we just went to a restaurant that has been labeled halal and also try Sticky Mango, there’s no intention to culinary tour because our focus is SHOPPING!! / hahaha
Sorry dont know the name because use Thai language (which is important there was halal label). This restaurant has a fairly complete menu such as Rice Briyani, Beef Noodle, Pad Thai, Tom Yum, etc with a variety of drinks as well. I get confused want to eat anything. For those that have a little size of the meal, be careful, because the portion of the food here is super huge.
In asiatique we ate at KFC and tried mochi ice cream (the seller says halal)
Halal Food in MBK quite easy to find, many Halal restaurant located on the 5th floor such as Foodcourt etc., or on the ground floor.
