Chinatown in Bangkok or known as Yaowarat is one of the largest Chinatowns in the world. It is also one of the must-visit places when you travel to Bangkok, Thailand. Expect the road packed with both locals and tourists’ whole day long. As the night falls, explore the roadside stalls starting from 5.30pm onwards.
Highly recommend trying the famous Yaowarat Toasted Bread which is located just outside Government Savings Bank. The toasted breads are placed on the charcoal grill to crisp up the bun skin. Once it is warmed up, the choice of fillings is added.
I was there around 5pm and they only just start to setup the stall. The queue starts to form when the stall is almost ready for business around 5.30pm. I quickly joined in the queue while grabbing the order-chit to tick my orders and wrote my name on the sheet. Then, pass the order chit to them and they will ask you to wait at a corner. Wait patiently for your name to be called and collect your order and make payment at the same time.
There are a total of 8 fillings available – Sugar Butter, Strawberry, Marmalade, Pineapple, Chocolate, Chilli, Egg Custard and Milk. Each piece is priced at THB25 ~S$0.97. We ordered Strawberry, Marmalade, Egg Custard and Pineapple to try.
Be sure you eat it fresh the moment you got hold of it. The warm toasted bread with the generous fillings is so satisfying! Aroi Mak Mak!My favourite is the egg custard. But I wouldn’t suggest keeping overnight because the buns are no longer taste good.

Apart from Chinatown, you can find them at Siam Paragon Mall. No queue and air-conditioned stall. But I think the original stall taste much better.
