Satay with sticky rice
Sunset at the market
Everywhere throughout the city you will find small skewer stands serving their idea of marinated chicken or pork skewered onto a stick and then cooked over open coals. These skewers are also called satay, which can be found all over Asian cooking or in Thai Mu/Gui Ping (หมูปิ้ง). Each skewer tastes different because it is up to the cook as to what it is marinated with. Many of them tend to be marinated in soy sauce, sugar, and fish sauce. They are some of the cheapest street food here and for good reason. For about 5 baht you get one tiny skewer of meat that you eat like an animal off of the stick. Many people also opt for the bag of sticky rice on the side to make it a well-balanced Thai meal, protein and some broken down carbohydrates. The satay here tastes great and for many people is an easy grab and go breakfast or lunch item.
