I’ve been far away from my homeland more than a decade and the thing which makes me homesick every single time is the street food in Bangkok.
Wherever you are and whenever you are hungry, all street food is available there almost 24 hours (some open at daytime, some at night time). Although you wake up at midnight, there is also has nighttime restaurants open until sunrise.
What food you can find in Bangkok? It’s various I can say. But if you don’t mind to have experiences with street food, you should try.
Street food is easy to find all over places in Bangkok and nearby area. You can also try in Silom Area or China Town (I will write about China Town in Bangkok later). Various type of food i.e. Chinese, Thai traditional food & sweet, Indochina food or contemporary food.
My recent visit to Thailand, I went to Suan Lumpini (opposite the Red Cross Building) to have some street food. If you want to have an original taste of Thai food, you should eat in Thailand.
I started my breakfast with Indochina pan-fried eggs with topping, seasoned whichever sauce you prefer. Followed with Roti with sweet condensed milk served with a cold drink.
In the evening I had my dinner in Pathum Thani Province. They are famous in noodle dishes. I picked egg noodle with red BBQ pork, my aunt went with red BBQ pork with rice. The red BBQ pork with rice is a bit sweet because it is topped with sweet sauce and serves with hot squad soup.
About the sweet, there is also plenty of Thai traditional desserts.
Tong Yord (Round Egg York Tart)
Egg yolk, sugar and flower water are boiled in sugar syrup and formed into round balls to create this sugar lover sweet.
Foi Tong (Shredded Egg Yolk Tart)
It’s basically the same ingredients used in two Thai desserts above; Egg yolks and sugar are boiled in sweet syrup and then formed into hairlike shapes.
Khanom Chun (Thai Jello)
Sugar, coconut milk and flour mixed and set in cookie pan to harden into a jelly is a very popular Thai dessert.
Khanom Moa Gang (Thai Custard Cake)
Thai custard cake baked and sprinkled with deep fried red onions.
Ta-Ko (Thai Pudding with Coconut Topping)
Authentic Thai dessert which is not as sweet as all above. This is full of the rich flavour of coconut milk.
