Street Side Kebab

There is always that sense of appreciation I get for street vendors who truly put their heart into the food they make. From the selection of quality ingredients to the robust flavors of condiments used, the difference can definitely be distinguished between their counterparts at department stores. This shop in particular, has been associated with the joys of sharing a meal and spending time with my father.

Shop Setup

All the ingredients are then tightly rolled up like a Cuban cigar and wrapped with aluminum foil.

Price Tag

Price for this kebab is reasonable cheap considering it is a vendor on the side of the street. The approximate prices are as follows:

  • Standard Kebab – USD 2.00 (THB 60)
  • Cheesy Kebab – USD 2.60 (THB 80)

Vendor Location

Away from the busy beach roads of Pattaya’s downtown party scene, this little street vendor is tuck away within Khao Talo’s peaceful residential area. At the entrance of Khao Talo’s Soi 7, across from 7-Eleven convenient stores, this shop is open once the sunsets beneath the horizon.

For easier reference, the location on google maps can be viewed here.

In conclusion, I would highly recommend this shop to adventurous foodies everywhere. The flavors and prices are exquisitely reasonable with the vendor truly striving towards taking this individual dish and perfecting it. It is both quality and quantity all in one with the attention to detail that makes this street vendor truly outstanding among the other. So give in to your cravings and satisfy your soul.
