Since I have been in Thailand for quite some time now, it’s only fair to share with you some Thai street food you can expect to find when you visit the country. There are many more, of course, and you should definitely come visit here to see for yourselves.
The 1st part is the appetiser. Can you tell that we, Thais, love fried food?
I love all these appetisers. More often than not, I ate them in place of my main dish, and it drove my mom crazy. When I was little, my grandma would prepare some of these for me after she picked me up from kindergarten, and I would eat them too much that I couldn’t eat dinner. hahaha I haven’t changed my habit since then, and yes, it still drove my poor mom crazy.
In case you haven’t noticed, Thai people eat ALL THE TIME. We could have breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack all day with all these appetisers. Find them easily, you guess it, on most streets in Thailand. 🙂
The 2nd part is the main dish. Eat them with either jasmine rice and/or sticky rice, unless it’s noodle. Thai people also eat porridge at any time of the day. Prepare to drink lots of water, my friends. If you love spicy food, you come to the right country.
FYI: You may be able to handle “extra spicy” when you order Thai food in the U.S., but I would not recommend you do that for Thai street food. 😛
The 3rd part is my favourite part, fruit + dessert. In case you wonder, these fruit are barracuda mango, mangosteen (aka. superfood), rambutan, star fruit, and sugar apple.
P.S. I will be back in San Francisco in 2 weeks, so you can definitely expect my Thai inspired food post weekly after that 🙂
Bonus: Some of you love Thai iced tea & Thai iced coffee, but do you know how they are made? 🙂
