This is a popular night spot for eating in Korat. This place has with retro or vintage look, but it is not 100 years old. It was build around 2015 on 3 Rai of land. Beside many food stands, there are kinds of “antiques” at the back, from old cellphones behind a glass, to old pedicabs and old cars.
It still has an historic value: I read that during the Vietnam War, the owner has wooden bungalows for American soldiers to rent. These bungalows were about 100 years old and remained until 2011. Later, the land was sold and transformed into that market.
It’s covered so even during the rainy season, you will eat outside without any problem. In the last years (2017-2018) more or more seafood and fish on BBQ are available and seems to be a trend. I personally like the “pla tap tim” on BBQ, or Pla Ka Pong. With sauces and vegetables, it’s normally 180 baht and you have enough for 2 people. The best stand, for me, is the one around the back of the market, near the Chang Bar.Snails are nice at 100 baht, beer Singh is currently 70 baht. Chang and Leo are cheaper… 🙂
It closes around midnight every day, but after 10pm, many shops are closed.
