Bangkok: street food and the green papaya salad

I could not recommend a restaurant in Bangkok. There are many, and probably some are very good ones. We get our meals on the streets, from one of the multiple food stands: rice or noodles with vegetables, sweet chicken or pork on the stick and green papaya salad.

I fell for green papaya salad. It's an adult-only, very spicy moment of pleasure. It's refreshing too, slightly sour. Simply delicious... The children in turn enjoy picking their choice from the grill. All you need to taste exquisite food in Thailand is a few Baths and an adventurous hunger (and anti-bacterial hand gel, as well as handkerchieves or cleaning wipes).
