Thailand Street Food: Insanely Delicious

I’ve been traveling in Southeast Asia for six months now and my favorite part of this trip is the street food. It was fun to go hunting the streets for a meal.

In Bangkok and in any part of Thailand, there are many kinds of street food to try. Fried Rice, Pad Thai or the Egg Noodles with pork dumplings. You can literally find food on every corner or in every market in Thailand. And yes, it is way cheaper than eating in a restaurant that’s why it’s the best choice for budget travellers. There are BBQ carts everywhere offering different meats, seafoods and tofu on a wooden stick.

One of the negative aspect could be is that they are often on busy roads and the hot weather makes it more uncomfortable to sit and eat. If you don’t want to sit you can always order to go. Pick the one where lots of Thais are eating and you won’t go wrong.

There are tons of streets lined with food stalls even in the more commercial/financial areas where many Thai office workers go for lunch. Some also set-up only at night that serves predominantly grilled meat or noodles. But each neighborhood throughout Thailand have street-food stalls either during the day or night.

Here are some snap shots of street food I found in Thailand:

To avoid a bad stomach or getting sick, Always make sure that you only eat foods cooked in front of you – especially with street BBQ.

The food, and especially their street foods is so addictive and I go absolutely crazy about it!
