With travel restrictions still in place, eateries specialising in street food of our neighbouring countries might be the closest thing we get to the local dining experience for a while.
New to the F&B scene here is BANNGKOK Street Food, which hails from Malaysia.
Located on Sultan Gate in the Kampong Gelam district, the place serves up Thai street food similar to its KL counterpart. This is also their first location outside of Malaysia.
Thai street vibes
BANNGKOK Street Food’s first outlet in KL opened in 2016, and the eatery is well known for its distinctive decor, layout and menu that are very reminiscent of Bangkok’s iconic street hawkers.
Here are some photos of their outlet in KL:
