1. Woah! Pang, these pictures DEFINITELY piqued my interest in visiting Thailand for the food! What are those vegetables that look sort of like an artichoke? Is it another kind of artichoke? Also, what are they making in that pan with the bubbles (the pan that looks like a takoyaki pan)? Bring me some street snacks when you come back to SF! 🙂

      Hi Sarah, I am so happy to hear that 🙂
      Those are not vegetable, they are fruit called “sugar apple” (Noy-na). I don’t see them in the U.S., and hardly in Thailand anymore. There are ton of big seeds in one fruit, but the the fruit itself is sweet & yummy; its texture is sort of like raisin, but not as sweet as raisin. I admit it’s kind of weird … hahaha

      The snack is called “Kanom Bueng.” I found them in Thai Town in LA, but I think you might be able to find them at Thai temple in Oakland. I heard there were many food vendors on the weekend. I love them, too. You can choose the stuffing between sweet or salty.

      When you go to L.A., you should visit http://www.bhankanomthai.com for all kinds of Thai dessert. 🙂
      Also, when you plan a trip to Thailand, please feel free to contact me for any help you need 🙂

      I love to hear that, Dana. If you ever come to Thailand, you might “give in” to fried food 🙂

    • What do you mean you don’t like fried food Dana?? We are going there for sure, you and me, and I will make you eat all this- Pang will be taking pictures for documentation purpose ihhihiii

      Thank you for your kind words, my lovely friend. I am really happy you like the photos 🙂

  3. Oh wow! I’m obsessed with these colors and textures. This looks like the most magical place on earth. And though I adore spicy food…… I don’t doubt that I would collapse under the heat of some of this street food! Wheeeee 🙂 Have you seen David Thompson’s oversized book Thai Street Food? http://www.amazon.com/Thai-Street-Food-David-Thompson/dp/158008284X Your photos remind me of that book, so lovely!

    What a job Pang!! I really love the way you present this story….the photos of the food and its cooking process. More like before and after. Some knowledge (how they prepare the food) blends smoothly in your beautiful story. Although I lived in Thailand almost 30 yrs, but I admit that this is the first time I see the deep fried crab with Kaffir lime leaves. I even have no idea what the name of this crab menu. Also, LOVE your rotee and chac chak photos. You caught the moments! I superb love the moments the guy preparing the rotee flour and the guy pouring chac chak. When I showed your post to P’Nod, he said your work is amazing 😀
