If you’re seeking an unforgettable culinary experience, then look no further, then look no further than Exploring the Famous Street Food of Thailand. From spicy curries to savory noodles, Thai street food has something to offer everyone. Whether you’re an adventurous eater or just looking for a quick bite on the go, here are some of the best dishes that Thailand has to offer:
Pad Thai: This classic noodle dish is one of the most popular dishes in all Southeast Asia. It consists of stir-fried rice noodles with eggs, fish sauce, tamarind paste, and your choice of various proteins like chicken or shrimp and vegetables such as bean sprouts and carrots. Pad thai is usually served with lime wedges and crushed peanuts for added flavor!
Tom Yum Goong: Tom yum goong is a hot & sour soup made with lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves & galangal (a type of ginger). The broth can be clear or creamy, depending on which version you order; both are equally delicious! Shrimp (or prawns) are often used, but other types of meat can also be included if desired.
Som Tam: Som tam is another famous dish found throughout Thailand; it’s green papaya salad mixed with chilies, garlic, tomatoes, dried shrimp & nuts. The dressing typically includes fish sauce and sugar & lime juice giving its signature sweet yet tangy taste. You’ll find this at many roadside stalls around Bangkok – make sure not to miss out!
Gai Tod: Gai Tod translates directly into “Fried Chicken” in English but doesn’t let that fool you because this isn’t your average fried chicken! Gai Tod uses marinated pieces that have been battered before being deep fried until crispy golden perfection – perfect snack when walking around town during lunchtime!
Khao Man Gai: Khao man giai translates literally into “rice cooked in fat.” It’s essentially boiled jasmine rice topped off by poached free-range chicken and dipping sauces typically consisting of chili jam/paste + soy sauce + vinegar mixture. A side serving of cucumber slices helps balance out flavors making this one tasty meal worth trying while visiting Bangkok!
