After spending months in Thailand eating out (mostly because I had no kitchen at my flat or was always traveling around), I learned to how pick the best meal at a restaurant after a few bad experiences. Trust me, ordering food at a food court when you have no idea what it will look like can be adventurous.
My favorite 5 favorite Thai dishes are:
- Green Curry
- Chicken Coconut Soup
- Pad Thai
- Fried Rice
- Massaman Curry
Of course this is only a small selection of what Thailand can offer you. You should also try cashew chicken, papaya salad, shrimps’ noodles, spring rolls, grilled salmon and spices, fried chicken and rice… the list could go on! I truly believe that the Thai cuisine is one of the best in the world. It is fresh and delicious.
With so many choices and variety, you rarely get bored of it! Let’s not forget that it’s also very cheap, you can eat at any restaurant for under $3! However, if you don’t fancy going to a restaurant for some reason, another alternative is to get street food. Here’s my top 3 street food items in Thailand.
- Chicken on a stick
- Spring Rolls
Yes, I ate a lot of chicken in Thailand, I loved it! Now that I’ve tempted you with main meals, let me introduce you to some desserts you might enjoy if you like exotic food.
- Exotic Fruits Salad
- Banana and Coconut Milk
- Sticky Rice and Mango
