Street Food – Sweet Potato Balls

By Wilbur Suen

Update: 27 September 2014

Have you tried this street food, Sweet Potato Ball also known as “Khanom Kai Nok Krata” in Thai? I must say that this item is not easily located and not available everywhere. Hence, if you manage to locate it, just buy and try it for yourself.

It is lightly crisp on the outside and airy soft on the inside. Does the description sound bouncy? It’s so delicious that you can’t stop at just 1.

Where can you find this?

  1. Pratunam (stretch of road in between Platinum Fashion Mall and Pantip Plaza) or
  2. Pratunam (Soi Petchburi 19)
  3. Outside Central World
  4. Outside Silom Complex

Do note that their carts are not permanent at one location and they could be at other parts of the street market. Do walk around if you can’t find it. Of course, do share if you manage to find it elsewhere too! 🙂

Just to update on the sweet potato balls in case anyone interested. Found 1 inside a hawker centre next to The Empire Place (near BTS Chong Nonsi, Sathorn)… just walked towards The Empire Tower and its a 2 mins walk to The Empire Place…. you will find a small hawker there…..
2 years ago when I visited the same place, it wasn’t there, think because of the new ruling, most pushcarts are now cramped inside the hawker……
The little balls are really crispy on the outside and airy inside and just so yummy delicious….
