Bangkok bans its street food leaving foodies fed up, vendors in a pickleAuthorities in Thailand’s capital are banishing its world-famous street-food vendors as part of a clean-up drive by the military government, outraging foodies and threatening the livelihoods of the road-side cooks. Bangkok is often voted the world’s best destination for street food in travel polls. “We would like the consumers, tourists or even the Thai patrons to be entitled to sanitary food, so far I don’t think we have achieved that,” Wallop Suwandee, chief adviser to Bangkok’s governor, told Reuters.
