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….
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)
