We always find time for a stop at Suan Lum Night Bazaar when in Bangkok, and on our first night at the Met. this is where we were headed. There's been lots of talk that Suan Lum was closing making room for massive high rises, so we were glad to see it still there !! There does seem to be quite a lot of movement at ground level, there weren't as many shops as we remember and food courts had moved from one end of the plot to another. So we decide to head down to Soi Polo for a quick fried chicken fix before heading back for more exploring.
We take a seat and place our order. Within moment we are graced with a larb muu - spicy pork mince salad and little baskets of sticky rice.
Then the fried chicken arrives, in all it's golden glory, smothered in deep-fried garlic.
And a som dtum - spicy papaya salad.
It's all covered in alternating spoons of the 2 sauces, a home-made sweet chili and a nam jim jiaw.
With our bodies now fueled, it's back to the Night Bazaar ..... Our favorite find in the little corner of local artists, was GumBKK, an aspiring artist with a very artistic use of gold and rabbits.
He also does some creative things with some Doraemon characters ....
Some of the rabbits are just too cute ... he even does custom shoes / bags / suitcases.
We get our little hot chili rabbit and a few other goodies to declare another sucessful and enjoyable trip to Suan Lum Night Bazaar.
