Thailand is also well known for its spicy food and undoubtedly a nation of fruits. A lot of vendors sell dozens of different chilled fruits, exotic food and different types of food on street corners throughout the kingdom. There are a lot of great variety of Thai food for you to try, both main dishes and desserts. I remembered during my first day here in Thailand; I was so afraid to try their local food because of the spiciness. Now, I’m starting to embrace it. In fact, I’m starting to miss a meal that doesn’t have spice. I actually have my top 5 food such as:
1. Tom yum Goong (Spicy Shrimp Soup)
This is a versatile dish that can fit within virtually any meal. It has distinctive smell like exotic perfume. This classic soup has a legendary herbal kick and invigorating sour spicy-hot taste.
2. Pad Krapao Moo Saap (Fried Basil and Pork)
A most favored dish in Thailand called Pad Krapao. It is made in large fresh chili, pork, soy sauce, green beans, a little sugar and lots of holy basil leaves. It is often served with fried egg on topped.
3. Khao Pad (Fried Rice)
Thai fried rice also known as Khao pad is one of the best fried rice I have ever tried. It served typically with a wedge of lime and slices cucumber. The secret of this ostentatious dish lies in its simplicity. Fried rice, egg, onion and a few herbs. Nothing more, nothing less.
4. Som Tum (Papaya Green Salad)
This spicy salad made from shredded an unripe papaya would definitely be one of your favorites in Thailand. Som-tum is very famous and easy to make. It has sliced tomatoes, peanuts, fresh garlic, raw yard long beans and dried mini shrimp. This can be served quite spicy with sweet and sour flavor. Please make sure to request how many chilies you want to add or else you can’t even handle and can’t get enough of its first bite.
5. Pad Thai (Fried Style Noodles)
A stir-fried noodle dish commonly served as a street food in Thailand. This is probably the most well-known Thai dish. It has sweet-sour-savory sauce scattered with crushed peanuts.
There are still lots of food in Thailand to choose and try. The best food is always found on the street. Each order ranges from 30-100 bath. Thai food is delicious but not very substantial, which is why Pad Thai (Fried Style Noodles) Som Tum (Papaya Green Salad)Thais are always eating. They persistently eat throughout the day because they eat small meals and still managed to maintain their tiny bodies and much healthier.
