Moo Ping

Taking the exit toward Mahapruttharam road from the Hua Lamphong MRT station, you can find small Moo Ping vendor in the evening. Moo Ping, the famous grilled pork skewer. They are the most common snack outside the school, metro station and tourist attraction locations.

The smokey flavour comes from the smoke of the coal. What a delicious marinated salty and sweet grilled pork, costs in a tourist place 10baths a skewer, buying one is not usually enough. To buy these skewers, ask the vendor how much a skewer costs and pick up yourself the best skewers from the steel wire cooking grid and hand them over to the vendor. The vendor usually will pack them in plastic bag and you may ask for the sweet spicy dipping sauce too(jaew).
