It’s always fun trying unusual foods in other countries and exploring their national cuisine. Food presents the habits of any nation as well as their attitude to eating. During holidays people prepare special dishes showing their behavior and lifestyle, so it’s interesting to know what people eat in different regions of the world. Thai cuisine has always been one of the most spectacular and specific cuisines. Many people consider it the best. Various spices and colorful dishes with original combination seem very extraordinary and even weird. But how tasty they are! Today we are going to explore the street food of Thailand. Note that it’s not fast food or junk food, it’s something very unique and delicious.
From early morning till late night street vendors prepare full meals. People buy them and enjoy right in the streets. Not only inhabitants but also the countless tourists visiting Thailand throughout the year say that street food taste is not available even in the most expensive restaurants of Thailand.
There are neighborhoods that serve best-of-the-best from Thai street food and one of those is Luphini Park. Right outside Lumphini on Ratchadamri Road street sellers will offer you Isan food and this will be an ideal choice for your dinner. Dishes most popular with people are som tam, lab and sticky rice. This place is usually very crowded, so you shouldn’t even think of finding a calm place; it’s just impossible. Oh, make sure you ask the vendors not to make your food too spicy because spicy food is peculiar to Thai cuisine. Sometimes they might even not ask you whether you love it or not, but just serve with a big smile on their face.
The second very popular street food place is Victory Monument where you will find a large street market full of street vendors offering delicious food. You will find countless noodles and rice dishes and also sandwiches usually made for high-school students who study near the market.
In all street markets you will find a lot of fruits. There are special tropical fruits, which can be found only in this territory called Thailand, hereby we suggest that you don’t miss your chance and try them.
