The Magic Food Point at Suvarnabhumi Airport

Thai Chicken Rice Stall

Here's an interesting little secret about Suvarnabhumi Airport that I read about online: rather than eating at one of the many tourist-focused restaurants in the airport, one can go down to the food court in the corner of the first floor instead. It's used by the local airport staff; one has to exchange cash for those little paper voucher things. I ended up stopping at this stall, which was just selling chicken rice, but clearly these huge bowls of hot sauce were the things that caught my eye. Most of them were a bit sweet, but nonetheless it was fun to try each one. Next time I'll have to get that "crispy" som tam that I saw at another stall; presumably it's deep fried papaya?
