My First Time Trying Street Food

We all love FOOD! I can hear you screaming back a loud YES! Who doesn’t love food anyway?! I am a self-confessed writer and foodie, too.

Now let me share with you my wonderful experience when I tried Thai street food for the first time ever.

Thailand is home for delicious, unique and exotic street foods. From seafoods, noodles, native delicacies and even crickets and bugs, Thai street foods will fulfill your cravings and curiosity at the same time.

When hunger strikes, even at the middle of the night, you’re sure to find something to eat. This is because Thai street foods are available day and night, may it be in Bangkok, Chiang Mai and other areas. Indeed, always a happy tummy for me.

And I’ll never forget to mention that Thai street foods are cheap! Servings here would only cost around US$1-US$2. Nice treat, yeah! Just worth your cup of coffee usually or even more.

Thai street food has its own culture and caters with sweet, sour, spicy and unique flavor offerings.

Okay, say you have this sweet tooth. The food here, especially the desserts would be a haven for you. They’re not only sweet, but delicious and attractive too. Comes in various shapes, designs and colors. Even their sticky rice has lots of colour variation such as the purple rice with your choice of toppings like mango or custard. Truly colorful and a delight to eat.

If you’re a noodle lover or just felt like eating a bowl of it, I’d say go ahead and try one. I myself can attest that it would be one of the great dishes you can try here. I have tried their egg noodles and it sure tastes delicious. There’s also a variety such as thin and thick rice noodles with your choice of meat, and other condiments and leafy vegetables. Go grab a bowl when you visit Thailand!

Barbecue or various kinds of grilled meat and fish is also a treat I’ve enjoyed. Its sizzling aroma is undoubtedly a stomach magnet and would really want to make you try them the soonest. It is best partnered with a sticky rice and a perfect dip or sauce of your choice.

I never had the courage to go and try the crickets and bugs that are seen all throughout the streets of Thailand. But just to share a few of what I’ve seen, these are usually fried to its crispy point. The most popular one is the giant water bug. If you’re the adventurous type and would love to try exotic foods such as these, then you’re in for a treat here in the streets of Thailand.

Now it’s your turn!
