Halal Food in Bangkok, Thailand

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.

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 🙂

Around the Chatuchak Weekend Market

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.
