06 Must-Eat Thai Specialties in Bangkok – It’s time to unwind in the good times

In the preparation of Thai food, no flavour is overlooked. The flavours of spicy, sour, sweet, salty, and bitter are virtually always present in Thailand's most famous meals. Bangkok's dynamic food scene never fails to please, from street vendors to the swankiest of restaurants.


Salad de Papaya (Som Tum)

The classic green papaya salad is one of Thailand's most unusual cuisines. This delectable salad has garlic, sugar, fish sauce, lime juice, and tamarind juice. When you combine this bounty of flavours with freshly shred green papaya and carrots, chiles, peanuts, tomatoes, and sticky rice, you've got yourself a Thai feast to die for.


Soup with Hot and Sour Prawns (Tom Yum Goong)

When lemongrass, galangal ginger, lime leaves, mushrooms, chiles, and tomatoes are combined in one delectable soup, what do you get? Yum yum goong tom yum goong tom yum goong to Although goong means shrimp, you can eat this flavourful soup with chicken or make it vegetarian. This meal is popular in kitchens all over the world, but it is especially popular in Thailand.


Fried Noodles in Thai Style (Pad Thai)

Before visiting Bangkok, you've certainly tasted some bogus pad Thai, but no phoney foreign dish can compare to the ubiquitous noodle mixture that put Thailand on the culinary map. Pad Thai is a difficult recipe to make since each ingredient must be carefully incorporated to create a delightful dish. Pad Thai must be made rapidly in order to remain hot and flavourful.


Sticky Rice with Mango (Kao Niew Mamuang)

You won't be strong enough to resist the mango with sticky rice offered on practically every soi (street) in Bangkok if you have a sweet craving. Before being poured over freshly produced sticky rice, coconut milk is slowly simmered with sugar and salt. The cold, ripe mangoes is peeled, sliced, and placed over the warm dish when the milk has settled. It makes up for what it lacks in nutritious value with flavour.


Soup with Noodles (Khao Soi)

This isn't your run-of-the-mill noodle soup. Khao soi is a northern Thai dish that is known to occur in Myanmar but has gained popularity due to Thailand's unique twist. Slow-cooked chicken, beef, pig, or tofu in a creamy, coconut-based curry. When you add yellow egg noodles, cilantro leaves, and deep-fried noodles on top, you've got a noodle soup unlike any other.


Soup with Chicken and Coconut (Tom Kha Gai)

These top Thai specialities all use coconut milk as a common denominator. Lemongrass, ginger, and other aromatics abound in this smooth soup made with chicken simmered in creamy coconut milk. While in Bangkok, it will undoubtedly become one of your favourite foods.

There are plenty of riverside restaurants in Bangkok such as the ones found at the Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort to enjoy great food with stunning views.
