The bus was not bound for Chinatown, so I got off near the Sampeng Market and walked around.
When I entered the market, I found that the narrow streets were lined with stores. This market is mainly for miscellaneous goods, and there are many small items displayed in the stores. If you like knick-knacks, you will love it. However, what attracted me was not the miscellaneous goods, but the food sold at the stalls.
There are always places to eat at markets, and in the Sampeng Market, there were food stalls selling food in the midst of the crowded general merchants. Shopping must be an act of getting hungry.
The table in the photo is from one such stall at the Sampeng Market. On the table are sausages roasted on a stove. All of them were browned and looked delicious. A closer look revealed that Sai Oua and Naem sausages were sold, but not Sai Krok Isan, the famous fermented sausage from the Isaan region in northeastern Thailand. Too bad I wanted to try it.
