If you have read my previous post about dining in Bangkok, it has probably stirred your interest for a clearer picture of their glorious foods.
These are some of the delightful Thai foodie:
Khao Phad Moo – Khao means rice, Phad means fried…so there goes your fried rice and comes with fish sauce with chili as dip sauce. Khao Phad goes with a selection of pork (moo), chicken (gai), prawns (goong). Unlike what we usually order at SR Thai (this is for my UST friends), I haven’t seen a beef fried rice in Bangkok.
Khor Moo Yang – this “Grilled Pork Neck” is also a hawker menu with its chili dip. I think it is a mixture of chili powder (with chili seeds), some spring onions, and I think vinegar? I am not sure but I am drooling now just thinking about it.
Tom Yum – Thai version of “sinigang”. Sour soup with coconut milk and different herbs and very spicy too. Even if you request to make it not too spicy, remember you are in Thailand and “not too spicy” is still spicy for a Pinoy palete.
Namtok Boat Noodles – You have a choice of just plain beef noodles with lotsa herbs and pork balls or make it namtok style with pork blood – sweet, salty,spicy taste. I know it may sound eeeeewy but it’s damn delicious. You’ll never realize that it has blood in it. In my case, I have been eating this noodle for like 4 years already before someone told me that my favorite noodle soup has blood as one of the main ingredient.
Price:THB5/piece wing part
THB10/piece leg part
Waan Yen – it’s like our very own “halo-halo”. Different fruit varieties (they also put some sticky rice in it) in shaved ice with coconut milk (though in some hawker, you can ask to put milk instead of coconut milk).
Cha Yen – Thai iced tea!!! Brewed Thai tea with condensed milk with lotsa ice—like 60% ice, 40% milk tea. Refreshingly yummy! Another favorite is the “O-liang” or Iced Thai coffee sweetened with condensed milk –drooool!
The best place to find and taste the scrumptious foodie is on the street but whether it is street food or fine dining, I would say Thai food is royally yummy – fit for a King!
