Tripadvisor

Or Tor Kor (Awe Tor Gaw to you, farang), is another favorite place to eat. Grab yourself a table and start ordering from the different stalls – satay, curries, desserts, soups – every Thai (a few Chinese and Vietnamese too) dish you can imagine is here.

One thing that strikes me when I eat there is how few farang I see; usually a sign of a good restaurant is how crowded with locals is it… the restaurants at Or Tor Kor are not crowded because there’s a lot of space; they are all busy.

Before lunch is a good time to hit the food stalls – everything is cooked and ready by then; but it is just before the mad rush of lunchtime so easier to order and get a seat.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_feature_list][x_feature_box title=”Food” title_color=”” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”60px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(354, 63%, 49%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”#272727″ graphic_icon=”diamond”]Amazing variety, fresh and great quality.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Atmosphere” title_color=”” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”60px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(44, 63%, 49%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”#272727″ graphic_icon=”question-circle-o”]It’s a bustling market busy from when it opens to when it closes; people are friendly and love that you’re there to eat their food.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Location” title_color=”” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”60px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”#2ecc71″ align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”#272727″ graphic_icon=”envelope-o”]It is one of my favorite parts of Bangkok.
