Must-try authentic food in Bangkok – An awesome food culture

The food scene in Bangkok is something that you shouldn't miss exploring. Yes, the modern restaurants and resorts that you head to will also serve you great food, but do not miss out the street food culture in the city at any cost. Here are some dishes to try when you are on your food journey.


Where to enjoy the best street food in Bangkok?

The most popular area for street food dishes in Bangkok is Chinatown. Head to this area on one fine evening and you are sure to find many street food dishes that you didn't even know they existed. Or else, head to one of the night markets such as the Rot Fai Night Market, the Asiatique, or The Riverfront during your stay at a Bangkok hotel with 5 star luxury the likes of Pathumwan Princess Hotel. You can also enjoy the dishes sold by the pushcart vendors.


Pork Porridge

'Joke Moo' is the name they have given for this delicious pork porridge which tastes like the Cantonese Porridge. The only difference is that in Thailand, they add more fish, sugar, and sauces as well. Joke Moo is also a great energizer especially for those who party till dawn, and locals also love to enjoy this dish on cold days as a comforter.


Thai Stir-fried noodles

A dish that has all tastes – sweet, spicy and sour, Thai Stir-fried noodles is a favourite dish among the locals. 'Pad Thai' is the name they have given to this dish, and it contains eggs, tofu, and peanuts too. Some vendors also add prawns for this dish, and that makes it even tastier.


Banana Egg Parata

Parata is a common street food in Asian countries, but how about the Banana Egg Parata? In Bangkok, you find this extremely sweet dish, where they add banana and eggs to the parata. It's not very crispy, but if you do have a sweet tooth, you will surely fall in love with this new food invention.


Thai Chicken Rice

'Khao Man Gai' is the name they call this delicious dish. Don't worry if you feel as if this dish is greasier that it is supposed to be because that's the effect of the sauce they add. (If you don't want the dish to be extra greasy, you may also ask the vendor to have sauce in moderate amounts- which is up to you!)


Desserts and drinks

Bangkok is a paradise for those who love ice cream. In addition to the coconut ice cream, travellers also find Rolled ice cream (I Tim Pad) when they roam around in the streets. When it comes to drinks, one of the most popular ones is 'Cha Yen' which means Thai Milk Tea. They use black Ceylon tea to make Cha Yen and this is why they have a fabulous taste.
