Ratchaprasong has a diverse variety of places to eat. The area's many roadside food stalls means you can easily join the locals by grazing from one of the many fruit, grilled meat, noodle, or beverage stands dotted around, and that seem to multiply as dusk descends. Once you've started, you won't want to stop. Typically, prices are between 25 and 40 baht per plate, and each stall serves a limited menu which can be eaten there or taken home.
All the malls offer extensive eating options. CentralWorld has over 50 restaurants, with cuisine for every palate and prices to suit all wallets. Aside from the typical fast-food outlets, find international cuisine, coffee and snack shops and fusion foods.
