Deep Fried Bananas (Kuay Tod) are not the most delicious of street food but they are one to be aware of. If your car or taxi is surrounded by masked men – do not cower in the corner or get out to run. Chances are the masked men are selling deep-fried bananas (Kuay Tod). The reason for wearing masks is to protect from car fumes when working the streets.
Deep fried bananas (Kuay Tod) are only sold to cars on specific streets of Chinatown. At the roadside they can be found all over Bangkok and are easily recognised by giant bubbling woks. Pay around 20 baht for a bag of 10.
