WARNING! Do NOT look at the pictures if you are hungry – it might make you “hangry”
Food, food, glorious food. Being a “foodie” I was extremely delighted to try all the new and exciting food that Thailand has to offer. I will say that my food journey through Thailand was amazing. Probably one of my favourite things to do there was to eat and try the many many delicacies that Thailand had to offer. I figure the easiest way to describe my meals is to show you the many many pictures that I took of food (what did people do before instagram and camera phones?)
The food that was served was always beautiful (in it’s own right). The mixture of sweet, sour and spicy was dominant throughout all of our meals. (How can all those tastes be dominant? well if you are asking that question that means you haven’t tried food in Thailand yet) To this day I remember the food’gasms’ all of us had throughout the entire almost three weeks we were there.
My recommendation is NOT to eat in restaurants. (I can say with extreme confidence that my friends agree) Street food is best when travelling around Thailand. It seemed it was always tastier, a better experience and memorable everytime we went out and had street food. (additionally a lot – a LOT – cheaper then restaurant food) The locals that joined us in our meals added to the experience further.
One of my favourite nights in regards to food was at the end of our trip. We asked a taxi driver to take us to a good restaurant and when we saw the prices we got up and left. (Not that they were that expensive but after spending 1-2 dollars on most meals we decided NOT to eat there). We ended up stopping at a “restaurant” – two tables set up beside a cooking station. And ordering fish, soup, meat, etc. THe soup was a ‘put it together yourself’ concept and was amazing. The “chef/cook” laughed when we had no idea of what to do with the ingredients. MEMORABLE and cheap! (most expensive thing on the menu – the beer.
