Rice vendor at Thung Kru Market

Most of the vendors in Thai markets are female.

A whole stretch of stalls selling halal food.

Muslim fishmonger. I like this market as almost 70% of the vendors are Muslim.

Some of the fresh fish available here.


Pakcik Mohammad's Duck Rice shop is located along Prachauthit Road, opposite of Prachauthir Soi 73 and Islamic College of Thailand. It used to be at Soi 67 but has moved and taken over Ibrahim's Duck Restaurant since Khun Ibrahim has moved to Mae Hong Son. The new venue is more spacious and more comfortable.

Pakcik Mohammad, in kain pelikat and white kopiah opens his shop daily from 8am to 5pm

This lttle outlet is full with just one table left for the two of us.

A plate of scrumptious crispy roast duck coated with a special creamy sauce, served with pickled ginger and cucumber....yummy!!!

Succulent chicken and shrimp dim sum.
I paid THB 145 for the two dishes.
