Must Eat Food in Bangkok – Gastronomic Adventures in the Thai Capital

Be you a bona fide foodie or just someone who likes trying different culinary creations, Bangkok has lots to offer especially street food. Here are dishes that you should definitely consider trying.


Grilled Pork

A street food favourite, Moo Ping or grilled pork is prepared freshly at street side stalls and the aroma of pork being cooked over charcoal is bound to make you hungry! The pork is grilled on a stick itself and when ready, you can enjoy the wonderful taste of tender meat while on the go.


Tom Yum Goong

If you are a fan of Thai cuisine, chances are you would have already tried Tom Yum Goong in your own country. However, there is nothing like sampling this dish in the Thai capital itself. Served at food stalls and at restaurants in Bangkok, Thailand this flavourful soup is spicy and has that wonderful lemongrass zest that goes perfectly with the prawns that are used in it.


Fried Chicken

Gai Tod or fried chicken is another popular street food that you will find hard to resist. Once again since these dishes are grilled or fried at roadside stalls itself, the sight and smell will be invariably hard to resist. This particular fried chicken is prepared using a special batter and marinade that make the finished product truly delectable and addictive!


Thai Fried Noodles

Pad Thai or Thai fried noodles is probably the most popular noodle dish and is favoured by both locals and foreign visitors. A mix of spicy and sweet, classic Pad Thai features stir fried rice noodles that are prepared with prawns, egg, bean sprouts, tofu, peanuts and tamarind sauce or juice which gives it an added "kick". You can easily find this dish offered at everything from street side vendors such as Thip Samai Pad Thai to cafe-cum-restaurants like The Coffee Club at Anantara Baan Rajprasong Bangkok Serviced Suites.


Crispy Pancake

On appearance, this crispy pancake, known locally as Kanom Bueang, may make you think of a taco. This popular Thai snack features a thin pancake that is crispy as well and which is folded much like a taco with a variety of fillings put inside. Fillings and toppings can vary from sweet to savoury and it makes a great snack to have on your outings.


Grilled Honey Roast Pork

Another must try dish for pork lovers, Moo Yang is grilled honey roasted pork that when done right is heavenly, to say the least! A perfectly prepared version of this grilled treat will have the pork well marinated so that the meat is tender, juicy and has that ideal complement of sweet honey flavour. Hint; you can find a stall (Area 22 Soi 4) at the Chatuchak Weekend Market that serves up some delicious Moo Yang.


Mango Sticky Rice

A traditional dessert and sweet snack in Thailand, Khao Niew Ma Muang or mango sticky rice is served up at many street stalls as well as at markets and malls in Bangkok. A mixture of fresh mango, glutinous rice and coconut milk, this yummy dessert is bound to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings.
