A food lover’s guide to Thai Street food – A culinary journey through the streets of Thailand

If you are a foodie, then you would understand that the flavours of food are not restricted to restaurants that offer fine dining. The rather messy eateries out on the street can prove to be quite satisfying too with their unique street food dishes.

 

 

Street food in Thailand

Thailand is well-known to be a foodies’ paradise, mainly because of streets that exist for the purpose of cooking and selling out amazing culinary delights! If you are lodged in major hotel chains such as the Minor Hotels ubiquitous in Thailand, take a break from your hotel food to set out and venture the smorgasbord for street food.

 

Pad See Ew

This is one of the most common Thai street food dishes among tourists and locals alike. Pad See Ew is a mix of wide rice noodles garnished with vegetables like Chinese broccoli or cabbage and stir-fried with a meat of your choice. Add some dried chilli flakes to spice things up!

 

Kluay Tod

Kluay Tod is a dessert made of deep fried bananas coated in a batter of desiccated coconut and sesame seeds. Once prepared, the outcome is a fresh and crispy golden treat to bite into!

 

Som Tam

Since Thai seafood dishes are simply the best, you simply have to try Som Tam! This wonderful street delicacy makes shrimp the highlight, with papaya, tomatoes and carrots mixed with lime juice and a whole lot of sweet and spice.
