Top 6 Heavenly Delights to Try in Bangkok – Deciding on the most delicious choices

Bangkok is well famed for its culinary scene but when you are given an extensive choice, it can be difficult to choose the best. Worry not as we make the hard choices so you can savor the best dishes


Grilled Pork

Known as Moo Ping among the locals, this is where pork is grilled on sticks along with plenty of spices. They are grilled on a charcoal grill which further adds a unique taste while the spice brings out the very best of the meat. Do not expect to find this dish while you are off fine dining in Bangkok at a hotel like Chatrium Residence Riverside Bangkok as this is more of a street food. Check out the food stalls at Pratunam Market for this dish.


Thai Fried Chicken – Gai Tod

Fried chicken is great on it own. However, when you cook it with a Thai twist to it, it turns into a dish that is beyond blissful. Jokes aside, the Gai Tod served at street stalls are simply heavenly thanks to their unique form of cooking. They make use of aromatic marinade and a special batter that gives the meat a crispy and brown texture to it. This does not affect the meat on the inside and it remains soft and tender; just as you like it. For best results, have it with a plate of hot rice


Sweet Potato Balls – Kanom Kai Nok Krata

Bangkok has constantly been voted the most idyllic location to taste this snack and rightly so. The word Krata refers to the quail eggs which refer to the size of the balls. The Kanom Kai Nok Krata is crispy and light brown on the outside but the inside is quite soft. The sweet potato balls are something totally worth trying out while in the city.


Crispy Pancake / Thai Crepes – Khanom Bueang

This odd dish can be found both in a savory form and as a sweet snack. It is a type of pancake that is easily available in a number of variations. The final meal looks something like a taco and they come with a wide number of fillings to choose from. A popular dish at street food stalls, they are quite cheap and come in large portions.


Grilled Honey Roast Pork – Moo Yang

You can find this tantalizing dish around the Chatuchak Weekend Market. Only a few stalls specialize in this as the process of cooking it is known to be tricky and intricate. The pork is marinated with spices and is cooked slowly until it gives a beautiful brown shade to it. The final dish of Grilled Honey Roast Pork has a perfect blend of sweetness and spiciness.


Pandan Sweetmeat – Kanom Krok Bai Toey

This is a perfect dish for someone who is health conscious. As it is not fried, the Pandan Sweetmeat does not have an excess amount of oil. This sweetmeat is spongy and rubbery and should be ideally consumed right after purchase.
