I just came from Bangkok for Jem's Bridal Shower last weekend, and I am flying back tomorrow for work. Can't wait to have more of the yummy food I tried (and some I just spotted).
Here are my top picks:
|Authentic Thai Milk Tea from the roadside stall|
Note to self: I want to but Thai Tea Leaves so I can make my own at home
|Hello Four Seasons Boneless Roast Duck and Salted Egg Prawns.|
We meet again! You can read my post on that here.
|The guardian of the Central World Food Market|
|Great Big Bowls of Curry served over Vermicelli Noodles|
Super Yummy and clearly a steal at 50 Baht!
|Green Curry Pork Meatballs over Rice Noodles|
|To remove the spicy kick of the curry, the Pork BBQ is the best,|
Popping invisible Fat chunks FTW. Also a steal at 10 Baht!
I'm a sucker for Thai Coconut-Cream based Snacks. Sadly, they seem to be sold on the street with no permanent stores, so finding them requires a bit of luck.
|I love Tako so much, Sof and I now know how to make them.|
|I also love Kanom Krok, another form of Coconut Pudding with toppings.|
This stall was extraordinary. She even used Brown Rice Flour!
|Our top picks were corn, shredded palm sugar and barley,|
and we came back for it the next day.
|This thin pancake with Coconut Cream filling has been intriguing me,|
I hope I get a chance to try it on this trip.
|Bangkok is known for their fruits. One unique thing we saw on the street|
was this pomegranate stall.
|The freshly squeezed juice was quite refreshing.|
|Giant Lychees. They look so much more attractive than my favorite small|
ones with tiny seeds from Hong Kong.
|Isaw. Thai Style. (Grilled Chicken Intestine) This I didn't want to try.|
We also saw fried crickets and insects but photos weren't allowed.
|Grilled Ulang (Fresh Water Shrimp with Giant heads)|
|Oh Crispy Pork Belly|
|And the staple Pad Thai of course!|
I must admit, one of the best meals I had last trip was not the food we bought, but the food we cooked from Silom Thai Cooking School. Now, if only I can just cook those dishes again. Hahaha. just saying.
