There is fierce competition on the noodle front with multiple varieties and choices available. The exotic spiders, grubs, scorpions, frogs, grasshoppers, etc. are also still sold in a few streets where immigrants from the far provinces treat themselves to a delicacy from their birthplaces.
Many of the stalls provide small plastic tables and stools to enjoy your meal. Be warned though, usually when a vendor requests “Spicy or No?” with a twinkle in their eye, if you are brave enough to choose “spicy” be prepared to experience a temperature close to the sun, for no people like their spices more than the Thais of the North and North East of Thailand. These seemingly harmless tiny red and green peppers/chilies pack a punch that would put Mohammad Ali to shame. Unless you truly eat Jalapenos like Jelly Beans, do not try to match a local on “spicyness content”.
