Something that goes hand in hand with traveling is of course, FOOD. And boy, do I love food. Here I have an ongoing list of the food I love, or at least have tried, so be sure to check back often for updates. I will give you my best description, possibly the Thai name if I know it, and the price (USD) I paid for each item.
Something to keep in mind. I enjoy the Thai food at the street markets. This is where I frequent for awesome yummy food. Not only is it cheaper, but in my opinion, more authentic and delicious! Sometimes restaurants try to westernize their dishes, and this is exactly what I DON’T want. I mention this, because this will affect the price you see. If I ate these dishes at a restaurant, I would be looking at paying at least $1-2 extra for each dish.
Also, most of the things you see won’t have a Thai name because it’s completely unnecessary. When you wander a street market, you look, point, buy. This is how you can ‘shop’ for food at the markets. Use your eyes to gather what they might be selling. I can pick out certain ingredients and see right away what food they sell. Train your eyes, then you can point and eat. Easy!
PS- I am a vegetarian. Sorry! Don’t worry, I will start taking more photos of all food, not just the ones I eat. Promise! With that said, every dish you see here regularly comes with meat, I have to ask for it with out… So really, just imagine a juicy piece of pork or chicken sitting on top of these dishes.
Enjoy your meal….
Khao Soi – Northern Thailand curry dish.
Red curry, spices, coconut milk, vegetables/meat and noodles. The soup is topped with crunchy noodles, cilantro, pickled mustard greens, raw onion and a squeeze of fresh lime.
This is one of my favorite Thai dishes! ($1.50)
These last three dishes were made my ME! After two years of living in Thailand, it’s about time I took a cooking course to learn how to cook Thai food. These are my top favorite dishes in Thailand. (Price is what I would have paid if I bought it at a street stall)
