Barbecue Street on Koh Chang island, who would miss?

Koh Chang barbecue street, have you been?

 

One night when Chris and I had just finished our flavourful Indian dinner, the owner of the restaurant told us about a barbecue place where we can have varieties of barbecue foods.

At first, we thought that it’s like an extensive market or particularly a shop because we couldn’t grasp and imagine how exactly it looked like, we just went on for a walk on a long stretch of the street of Koh Chang while drizzles of rain were pouring over our head.

At first, you wouldn’t be able to figure out if it that was really the one that you’re looking for because honestly, we both had no idea it was really it.

 

So how does it look like?

Here you go. Rows of compact stalls were set for people’s choices of barbecues.

Barbecue and other finger licking good foods! Chicken and pork barbecue were being grilled and we were one of the customers who was drooling while waiting!

In traveling, you just go for whatever you feel like eating and not because it was recommended by someone or hearsays or just because flocks of tourists go to the same locale. Right?

 

Here, you can have some rice, too! Rice lovers, anyone? I would lie if I say I’m not one!

 

On Koh Chang Island, this local barbecue street has what you crave for. Whether you want to go for rice or fruits, kebab, and of course, barbecue foods are more extended and offered and rustled up here.

 

I love corn, you know? Yey! It’s 20 baht!

 

My boyfriend caught me devouring my barbecue corn.

 

Koh Chang island in August is a wet season so it’s more pleasurable and ideal to dine in at restaurants, however, since the day that we arrived, we had been feasting on commercial restaurants so we opted to try something new like authentic local barbecue foods.

 

30 baht coconut

 

 

Kinds of seafood are also available like squid, fish, shrimp and more. It doesn’t cost much so prices are reasonable and pocket-friendly.

 

Tropical fruits are abundant!

Take away is preferable here because there are no available tables for eating in. That’s exactly what we did. It was also a bit dripping of rain so we just grabbed and went back to our Villa.

 

 

What did we end up buying though? Here we got 2 coconuts, a set of fruits, barbecue fish, pork and squid and spicy fried rice with an egg on top with a total of 260 baht!

    I love this kind of night markets where they bbq all sorts of types of food. I didn’t go to Koh Chang island but the best food night markets I have experienced were in Beijing and in Kuala Lumpur. I felt like I wanted to taste a little bit of everything!

    Yung totoo umalis ka ba talagang pinas, parang mercato lang yan ah hahaha… I love anything grilled so I think I would have a grand time if I were there. Speaking of, I might go to Thailand next year, still planning for it. Not sure when it is going to be but I will sure include Koh Chang island in the itinerary.

    Barbecued corn and tender coconuts are two of my favorites. Luckily, both are abundant in my country. However, to have them in a buzzing street of Koh Chang would definitely be an experience in itself 🙂 Which no one would want to miss

    Wow seems like a treasure house of exotic affordable local food. I think I will head there straight.
    Those fish getting roasted over coal is tempting me.

    Beautiful food shots. And those fruits are just perfect. That is what i tend to look for in most places – the local fruits. I can see you had a blast with the food there. Cheers

    Ohhh.. I can just imagine the enticing aroma of the grilled foods! I love barbecue and I’m pretty craving right now! hahaha. I usually tend to eat where my foot will take me when visiting a new place, but a good recommendation from the locals is very much appreciated! 😉

    I love Thai food, but as I was following you through this post I was thinking – what a shame, I’m a vegetarian. But then towards the end we reached the seafood stalls and I was relieved – I’m a vegetarian that eats fish… It looks like a lovely, typical Asian food market. Just wonderful.

    I love these Asian night food markets: they are colorful, fun and you always find something yummy to eat for not much. A pity that you learnt about this street market only after you finished your Indian food!

    We love barbecued food though our options are limited as we are vegetarians. We regularly visit a few restaurants that specialize in this. But a ‘Barbeuque street”, that is something else. I can well imagine rows of stalls with barbeques, that must have been great fun. The rice looks spicy too. After gorging on all that stuff I am sure a cool tender coconut is needed to wash it all down. Nice discovery.

    Wonderful… I actually like the simpler things more, like the corn and the coconut water. Would also like to see the “flavorful Indian dinner” that you had before the barbecue. A meal for 10 Baht makes it a real paradise for budget travellers.
