7 Eleven Toasties Must Try Cheap Eats in Thailand
Even when I’m not on a budget, I still enjoy eating tasty 7 Eleven Toasties – Ham & Cheese is best!
Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, and Malaysia, have an abundance of 7 Eleven convenience stores. These are great places to hang out and shop.
For some, 7 Eleven is a great go-to place for cigarettes, condoms, and two large Chang beers to get the night started or even keep the night going.

We head here for families with young children as a safe hangout to browse and get a few snacks without traveling far by taxi or tuk-tuk.
We often look for a hotel with a 7 Eleven or a MacDonald’s in its vicinity.
Ham & Cheese Toasties are great for a Quick Breakkie!
On my last trip to Bangkok, we stayed at STAY Hotel Bangkok, which is excellent.
It has a 7-Eleven directly opposite the hotel.
All I could think of were Cheese Toasty, Ham and Cheese Toasties, and junk food.
The FamilyMart is a 5-minute walk away, and MacDonald’s is a mere 7minutes from the FamilyMart outlet.
Our breakfast and supper where we get to eat toasties instead of instant noodles!
Confession, the hotel’s breakfast cost THB250; in comparison, Ham & Cheese Toastie is only THB25!
I know, I’m cheap in a way, but then those darn toasties taste so good, they’re practically addictive.
I even repurchased some sandwiches home for my breakfast!
For my 4D3N trip, I must confess that I packed in 4 Ham & Cheese Toasties!
I foresee a rise in that number by the end of the year with more trips coming up.
The grilled sandwiches are enough to warm our tummies and souls.
What is a 7 Eleven Ham and Cheese Toastie?
It’s a simple concept. It’s just a slice of ham, a piece of cheese sandwiched between 2 slices of white bread.
You purchase one for about THB25 (remember to watch out for offers!)
The cashier will ask if you want this toasted, and she pops it in a sandwich press, and 3 minutes later, you have a delicious treat.
There are other variants to this culinary delight. Some have double cheese or ham slices.
Others are in a croissant.
But I still love the winning formula.
Do I read the Nutritional Info on the 7-Eleven Ham and Cheese Toastie?
Not that I can read Thai. I don’t bother.
I look for 7-11 Ham and Cheese Toasties with Extra Cheese!
And lots of Cheese Flavours.
There’s one that’s called Burnt Cheese, very delicious cheese varieties to enjoy.
It also depends on the neighborhood you stay in.
Krung Thep Maha Nakhon is a posh area with high-end condos, so there was still some toastie to find at night.
In all the beach towns, you’ll be lucky to find a toastie on the shelf by lunchtime!
I’ve heard stories of a budget traveler buying 5-10 toasties at a time for lunch and dinner later in the evenings.

7 Eleven Burgers
These days there is an impressive range of burgers at 7-11.
I tried the burgers, which are reheated in a microwave.
The heated meats and fillings taste good, but the bun turns out greasy and soggy.
A better bet is to try the more Thai-inspired sticky rice burgers.
You can get locally inspired sticky rice street food staples, such as Moo Ping (marinated pork) or a spicy Kaprao.
Moo Zaap (pork and holy basil) is tasty, although I stick to the street food originals because I don’t fancy eating microwaved food.
