Update for Sukhumvit Soi 38 Food Street (Night) in 2016 @ Bangkok [Thailand]

I am a food loyalist and if i like something from a specific place, chances are i would make a special trip just to curb my craving; just last year, i had a great time at Sukhumvit Soi 38 Food Street and decided to drop by for dinner in April 2016. 

Same street but my mind was telling me something was amiss. 

A row of shophouses was demolished and there laid a void that changed the atmosphere. I am not an avid believer for Feng Shui but it's hard not to notice that the crowd was exceptionally thin throughout my short stay.

We went back to the same food cluster (sheltered) visited in 2015 and there appeared to have more stalls. Maybe those stalls along the street where the shophouses used to stand have moved in.

Feels like a typical coffee shop / non-air-conditioned food court and i was thinking, along with Alex, if we would be better off dining at Pier 21 instead.

Mango Sticky Rice - in 2015, this was amazing! This time, flavour appeared to be lacking. Now, when it comes to food, it's hard to maintain a hundred percent, guaranteed consistency unless everything is prescribed to the precise timing, portion etc.

Satay - no complaint although i would prefer some fats in between the lean meat. More commendable was the pickled onions and cucumber slices; tasted somewhat like our local achar. Sorry i didn't make a mental note for the prices for both dishes!
