Top 7 Must-Try Bangkok Dishes - For the Best Asian Flavours!

Thai cuisine has taken the world by storm. The flavours are absolutely astounding, and you cannot miss out on the food items of this list when in Bangkok for the best gastronomic experience ever!


Pad thai

First, we have Pat tai on the list. Ask any locals for their favourite dish, and 8 on 10 people will point you towards this one. This is a street staple made out of rice noodles with additions of juicy shrimps, tofu egg, and bean sprouts. The seasoning and lime juices make it all the better!


Tom yam

The tom yam soup is another epic dish which incorporates lemongrass, lime juice and kaffir lime leaves, giving you a soup of a lifetime! The taste is just out of the world. It doesn't matter if you're going on a holiday or a business trip to Bangkok. It is a must to taste these flavours. You can always book a Bangkok business hotel, the likes of Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel, which will offer local authentic dishes. Then you do not have to head out in search of these dishes.


Gooay teeo reua

The Gooay teeo reua actually means 'boat noodles', as these bowls were served along rivers and canals of Bangkok. The broth is infused with different herbs and spices and cooked slowly until the meats, spices, and herbs all come together in perfect balance!


Som tum

This pretty dish is plated with crunchy and thin strips of fresh papaya that is crushed along with long beans, tomatoes, garlic, fish sauce, lime and chillies. The spiciness is much loved by the locals, and you can find it easily in most of the street side restaurants in the city!


Kanom beuang

Want to try some local snacks? Well, it doesn't get better than the Kanom beuang which reminds one of the Mexican tacos. The snack is served with either of the two fillings. One is sweet which incorporates preserved tropical fruits and duck egg. The other is a savoury one, which has a mix of dried shrimps and white pepper! You need to try both these versions' and decide for yourself which one you like best!


Mee grorp

Noodle dishes are an absolute must-try when in Bangkok. Coming to Asia and not trying local noodles? That actually might be a cardinal sin! The Men grorp is a bowl of crunchy noodles that are prepared in very traditional ways, making the flavours all the more tantalising as it is authentic. The dish boasts of a unique taste and sweet and sour flavours!



Sate is a plate of skewered meat made out of the best herbs and spices. Who doesn't love some delicious skewered meat, right? Although this is not a Thai dish per se, one cannot deny the popularity here. The sate is known to be a popular food item that was brought from Indonesia or Malaysia. The Thais have their own version of it, which makes it all the better!
