Located between the high-rise office buildings, next to hotels and near the intersection of Silom Road and Naradhiwas Road, La Lai Sap Market is a stark contrast from the surrounding building. From the Chong Nonsi BTS station you just need to walk straight down the narrow alley and La Lai Sap Market is right around the corner.

  

Today I will show you where to local office crowd go in Bangkok. This is where they go for lunch and some shopping. You can also get your fresh fruits, fresh vegetables and seafood here.

  

 

From the hotel FuramaXclusive Sathorn, you can take a 5-minute walk to the La Lai Sub Market. You just need to turn left from the hotel's entrance/exit and you are already there!!

 

Some recommendations for food.

There is a food court inside the market, serving up local cuisine.

 

At Trinity Building, head down to the basement for the Trinity Food Mall.

  

Or head for some Japanese cuisine, also at Trinity Building.

Sample a myriad of local flavours from stalls selling colourful snacks and lunchboxes.

Apart from food, the street is also lined with ladies fashion items like clothes and bags.

You must try the fresh dessert, Khanom Thua Paep (Mung Bean Rice-Crepe). Green Bean wrap topped with freshly grated coconut! 

There are also stalls selling gadgets and accessories.

Follow the scent of freshly baked bread and you will arrive at Home Bread. This bakery makes fresh bread daily. Their Fresh Butter Bread is very soft and smooth, not too sweet with a hint of butter. If you prefer pies, do try the young coconut pie, bursting with coconut flavor with every bite.

Do try the Tod Mun Pla (Fried fish cakes). The fish cakes are made with fish meat mix with Thai herb and lentils. The mixture is then kneaded until it becomes sticky. It is then deep fried. Best eaten with sweet and sour sauce. It is a bit spicy because of the Thai herb, but it is oh so yummy!

When you are in Bangkok, do drop by La Lai Sap Market for a peek at the daily buzz of the locals.
