Pig Brain Soup

Although this might sound unsavoury at first, many who have tried this claim it’s a Michelin-level dish, and among the best food in Bangkok. The balls made of pigs’ brains melt in the mouth and are flavoured to perfection.

Blood Noodle Soup

This is another dish that might sound weird to laymen, but is actually quite delicious and enjoyed by many. It features a delicious spiced and aromatic broth made from either pig’s or cow’s blood. You might not find any mention of this on a Bangkok travel guide but it’s still something worth experiencing.

Bamboo Worms

Locally known as Rod Duan, although these might look unappetising at best, a quick bite will probably make you wonder if this could serve as a finger-food because they are crunchy and delicious. This is one snack you can find on blogs such as Travel Bangkok Now.

Grasshoppers

It’s astonishing how much protein this common snack can provide, with a single handful containing the same amount of protein as a chicken breast.

These are a unique and delicious snack that can be described as relative to sushi, where instead of seaweed wraps, noodle sheets are used to wrap various ingredients into rolls which are then usually cut into several bite-sized pieces.

Bowl Pudding

These are delicious and are more gelatinous cakes than puddings. They generally contain a red bean paste and are commonly served hot, although some like them cold.

Fried Squid

This is one of the most delicious snacks one can experience in Hong Kong, but be warned…some places deep fry an entire squid, which might be a little intimidating. This is available in most places where dining in Hong Kong is concerned, from street stalls to entities such as Cosmo Hotel Wan Chai Hong Kong.
