The fruit cart that can be seen everywhere around Bangkok and the rest of Thailand. A piece of fruit cost 10 THB which is very very cheap, 2 pieces of fruits can easily fill you up. Typical fruits in the cart are tropical fruits such as green mango,papaya,watermelon,cantaloupe, pineapple and guava.

Usually, the sachets of salt, sugar and chilli flakes mix will come with the purchase of fruit pieces.  Few year back the seller would simply scoop a spoonful in the fruit bag, but now not only it come separately, but in some of the vendors, there are varieties of the condiments.  I usually ask for salt and chilli sachet without the sugar.

A word of caution though, if possisble, better buy from the vendor where seller wear gloves when picking and chopping the fruits, at least you’ll know that he or she is hygine.
