There are are a growing number of stalls and food courts in both Bang La On and Bang Niang that sell more local cuisine than in restaurants with familiar "street food" favourites. Look for where locals are eating as opposed to tourists.

Don't know if it's exactly the 'street' food ur looking for but in our family it ain't bedtime until you have had a Nutella and banana pancake or a 'milk' pancake (for milk read 'dripping in condensed milk)! Heaven with a little bit of a sugar rush!!!!

That's what BoldBoysMum is referring to. There are various stalls in Bang La On and Bang Niang as well as being on the menu of various more local restaurants both in town and on the beach.

I know in Phuket I had trouble finding the 'roti' pancakes. I only ever saw the normal pancake stalls

Every pancake we had it Khao lak was a roti. We stood fascinated as a wee ball of dough was stretched into ultra thin giant disc and fried! I don't think we every saw a normal pancake (for us normal street pancake would be crepe style)

Ohhhh thank you. I'm so happy to know that.

II only found them in Bangkok. Phuket was just the crepe style.

Every time we talk about Thailand, the banana roti pancake comes up. We will certainly be getting our fill in Khao Lak

Also there are a few street carts that do yellow noodles which were a revelation to me! I don't know if they are only really found in the KL/ Phuket area or I just hadn't noticed them anywhere else I've been in Thailand. They were more of a tangy flavour than other noodley dishes I've had and loved before.
