07 Mouth-watering Thai street foods you’ll love – To best enjoy your Thai food excursion

Thai street food is the delectable aspect of taking a tour in Thailand. Streets are packed with street food stalls, and people who are daring enough to sample Thai food, line in front of the stalls.


Pad See Eiw

This is the Thai version of spaghetti and meatballs. Pad See Eiw is a comfort food that's warm and hearty. The main ingredient of the dish is wide rice noodles which are fried with soy sauce. The dish comes with meat items like beef, pork or chicken; some eateries throw in vegetables like broccoli and cabbage as well. An inherent part of dining in Bangkok, Pad See Eiw is a safe choice for those who don't want to take on the full-blown spicy attack of Thai food.


Kluay Tod

These are fried bananas, and they are consumed as snacks. Prior to frying, slightly raw bananas are soaked in a batter made from sesame seeds and desiccated coconuts. Kulay Tod is crunchy on the outside and creamy on the inside. Freshly fried Kulay Tod is the best snack you'll have enjoyed on your Thai tour.


Pad Kra Pao

This is a dish of rice that comes with minced pork or chicken. The meat is fried with chillies and Thai basils. If you don't like strong flavours or spicy foods, this is definitely not for you: Thai basil has quite the strong peppery flavour, and Thais like to infuse the dish with chillies. If you don't like spicy food, but want to try the dish anyway, you can ask the vendor to make it less spicy. Pad Kra Pao usually comes with a fried egg.


Som Tam

One of the Thai favourites, Som Tam, has a range of serving styles – guests at Chatrium Residence Riverside Bangkok can see it for themselves. The most basic dish is made of shredded papaya, chillies, lime juice, fish sauce, garlic, tomatoes, sugar, carrots, dried shrimps and peanuts. All the ingredients are slightly crushed using a mortar and a pestle. Som Tam is usually spicy, so, if you don't do spicy, you can ask the vendor to go easy on the spicy level.


Khao Kha Moo

Consumed as a main meal, Khao Kah Moo is rice served with pork leg. The pork is the most delicious part, and it is cooked in a fusion of sugar, soy sauce and various local spices. You can find this dish easily in the streets of Thailand; you will see massive pots of pork legs and hard-boiled eggs; the rice is usually served with an egg on the side.


Kai Jeow

This is one of the most inexpensive dishes you find in Thailand, almost every street food vendor sells Kai Jeow. This is rice served with an omelette. The omelette is what makes the dish a favourite. The way Thais make omelettes is different from the western style; the centre of the omelette is succulent, and the outside is crispy and golden. Kai Jeow is made with chillies and soy sauce and completed with a topping of chilli sauce. The dish can be consumed at any time of the day, but it is usually eaten for breakfast.


Moo Ping

Moo Ping is a street snack that's popular among locals, and tourists come to love it. This is skewered pork served with bags of sticky rice. Pork is the usual meat item, but you find chicken as well. Vendors try to make their Moo Ping distinct by changing the recipe a bit. However, the typical Moo Ping is made with soy sauce, garlic and sugar. This Thai culinary delight has a sweet, savoury flavour.
