One of the best things to do while travelling is trying all of the culinary wonders a destination offers. If you travel for food, then you’ll be pleased to know that Bangkok is one of the world’s greatest street food cities that let you discover its abundance of delectable things to eat everywhere you look as soon as you start exploring the city.
1) Guay Teow (Noodle Soup)
Guay Teow is one of the most popular Thai dishes without doubt and can be found almost everywhere. The dish is made from chicken, pork, or fried vegetables and is topped off with seasonings of your choice, these include dried chilli, pepper, lime juice and fish sauce. The dish can be eaten at any time of the day and is particularly enjoyed as a late-night snack.
2) Tom Yum Goong (Spicy Shrimp Soup)
This steaming bowl of goodness is aromatic and comes with a fairly strong spicy kick. It is made from lemongrass, chilli, galangal, kaffier lime leaves, shallots, fresh lime juice, fresh prawns and plenty of sauce. Just one sip of this soup is enough to exuberate your taste buds, from the tangy taste of the lemon to the flavour of the fresh prawns… everything about this soup just tastes right.
3) Yam Pla Dook Foo (Fried Catfish with Green Mango Salad)
Crispier than you can ever imagine, the Yam Pla Dook Foo is where Catfish are fried in tiny pieces and mixed with a salad made from your choice. This scrumptious fish salad is best paired with a sweet, sour and spicy green mango salad and is best enjoyed by tourists and locals alike in almost every single restaurant in Bangkok.
4) Yam Talay (Spicy Seafood Salad)
Yam Talay is not your average seafood salad, it can have any combination of squid, shrimp, mussels, scallops or crabmeat. Mixed in with the seafood medley are tomatoes, onions and rice grass noodles or if you prefer to add some other ingredient, you can add mushroom, mint or drizzle your favourite sauce on top. However, the dish is not recommended for those who can’t handle spice as it tends to come with a hefty kick.
5) Pad Thai (Fried Noodles)
Pad Thai consists of white rice noodles stir-fried in thick soy sauce with chicken, pork or beef as well as Chinese Broccoli or cabbage that are fried and seasoned with soybean paste, soy sauce, dry chillies and more. This dish is a complete sensation of flavours, it is a complete mix between spicy, salty, sour and crunchy all at the same time, and is capable of satisfying anyone’s taste palette.
