The popular coconut pancake will be a great choice with which to commence your Thai street food experience. These are made using flour, plenty of sugar and coconut milk in a special kind of pan.

You will see that the meat is marinated using soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar and garlic giving it a salty and sweet flavour. You will also find skewers marinated with milk which are also a delicious variety.


Sweet roti

You will often find this street food in neighbourhoods that are frequented by tourists, such as Khao San Road. You will see that the procedure employed by the vendors to make the roti is interesting in itself, with the vendor massaging, tossing and cooking the roti on a heated pan. Visitors will find that this roti is made from flour, egg, butter and palm oil. It is possible to obtain this roti plain, or alternatively with toppings such as chocolate, banana, Nutella, cheese or corn.


Thai barbeque skewers

Resembling the kebabs that you will find in other countries, this barbeque speciality is served on skewers. This street food is prepared gently marinated along with a glazing of ketchup, making them taste somewhat sweet. You will have the opportunity to choose from pork, chicken and beef. Usually, you will also find sliced onion, a cherry tomato, pineapple and green pepper on the skewer. Often a dash of ground pepper is applied to the skewer before serving.


Thai crepe

Sometimes referred to as 'sweet taco' these special Thai style crepes are served folded and crispy. To make this delectable street food the batter which is composed of flour, sugar and egg is cooked until it reaches the desired consistency. Then the soft cream, made from sugar and egg white, is added on top. Savoury crepes are made with spring onion, shrimp, pork threads and egg. On the other hand, the sweet variety is topped with threads of sweetened egg yolk and sometimes raisins. Restaurants in Sukhumvit offer such street food delights and if you are in search of nearby accommodation, consider options like Emporium Suites by Chatrium.
