About Wang Lang Market
Wang Lang is popular as a food market and shopping by the river. You will find plenty of mouthwatering food dishes that include seafood, continental food, Chinese food, and multi-national cuisine dishes. At the market food stalls, you can relish the taste of Kanom Krok and Kanom buang maprow. Kanam Kroks are tiny cupcakes baked in a hot metal mold. Kanom buang maprow are crispy wafers filled with meringue and salty dried shrimps or sweet coconuts.
Kanom buang maprow are available in small sizes but their taste is great. You can also enjoy roasted pork, muu daeng yang, served at several places just to the left of the ferry pier. Tourists can order a plate of ‘baame muu daeng heng’ containing springy wheat noodles studded with chopped scallions and chunks of roast pork. Southern food is hard to find but many stalls along the south of Phran Nok road serve it. You can ask to try phad sataw muu tawt. It is made from delicious stink beans stir-fried with crispy fried pork belly.
