This Ramadan, visit Bangkok and enjoy Halal food!
In Thailand, Bangkok’s halal food market has become one of the hottest attractions. Non-Muslims in this holy month are massively drawn toward rotis, curries, noodles, skewered and grilled meat with peanut sauce, and murtabak, fried crepes stuffed with egg, chives, and minced meat in the halal food market of Bangkok.
In Thailand, Islam is a minority faith; with only five percent of the population is Muslim.
In Ratchathewi, one alley, Petchabury 7, is the center of Ramadan fare. Here, faithful visitors have been visiting for many years in the Holy Month.
“I don’t live in this area,” Lek told Arab News as she ordered Pattani-style chicken curry. “But I come to this street market during Ramadan every year to try the food.”
TeHo, a Pattani shop right at the entrance of the alley is one of the most popular spots. It is mainly well-known among the young crowd who hang out in that place to eat roti and drinking tea until the early hours of the morning. The shop sells hundreds of rotis every day during Ramadan.
“My husband was from Pattani and he told me that in the deep southern provinces, this kind of small shop — selling roti and hot tea or coffee — is on every corner,” Kulchalee Na Pattani, who has been managing TeHo for 14 years. “There were no shops like this around here until he started one.”
Additionally, sweet and savory types of roti, TeHo also sells chicken curry and other halal items. A full meal will cost no more than $3.
