Prachak and the Saphan Taksin and the Bang Rak Area. Bangkok, Thailand
Note

This is an old part of town with many restaurants and food stalls that have been there for decades! These guys know some cooking secrets that would put the finest French chefs to shame. The stretch of road going from Saphan Taksin BTS station to the crossing of Charoen Krung Road and Silom Road is a foodies dream walk.

Prachak – Bangkok`s best roasted duck
There are simply too many food gems along this road to mention them all but here lies Prachak Pet Jang famous for its Chinese-style roasted duck with a dark, spicy sauce over rice. It is delicious! The skin is perfectly crispy while the duck meat is super juicy. The rice is cooked perfectly and the Chinese sausage is delicious slightly sweet. Mmmmmm!

Prachak is an institution, and has served roasted duck to hungry Thais since 1909!

Reviews on TripAdvisor
Some other great places to sample street food in Bangkok is around the Victory Monument and on Pectchaburi Soi 5 and many others. Bangkok’s street food is everywhere and is almost always tasty and freshly made, so step out of your hotel and explore!
