Going to Thailand during the New Year, good idea for a foodie?

Hello everyone!! Long time freeloader on these boards, but I think it’s time I came out from the shadows.

I will be in SE Asia for the first time and I wonder if anyone has recommendations for eating experiences that are not to be missed by a bay area native that knows good food but likes it simple. We’ll have approximately 36 hours in each city and I’m looking for non fine dining options, just great food that will change my life and is somewhat close to the basic attractions of the cities. I feel like I need 5 options in each city that are relatively easy to find before we go on the trip. Thanks everyone!!

We’ll be staying by the MBK center in Bangkok, but will probably go to all the temples/attractions around the city. In Chiang Mai we’ll be in the middle of the city, in Koh Samui we’ll be in Choeng Mon, and in Hong Kong in Kowloon close to the water, but will probably venture to all the attractions of the city so anywhere along the train routes are fair game.
