Hotel JAL City Bangkok recommends four spots, where you can experience authentic Thai cuisine.
Mae Varee is a famous and long-established store popular in Bangkok. You can easily tell that it is a store that specializes in selling mangoes, even from outside the store. The quality of the mangoes is excellent, making them very popular among tourists. Fresh mangoes can be purchased for as little as 100 THB (410 JPY). If you want to eat them right away, you can buy the ones that are just ripe, or if you tell them you want to eat them a few days later, you can buy the ones that are not ripe yet and will be ready in a few days.
Popular menu items include freshly cut mangoes and the traditional Thai dessert, khao ngao mamuang (mango sticky rice). You can take it to go, and savor them in your hotel room while in a relaxing atmosphere.
