We are back in Bangkok, Thailand!!!For this special entry of Puppy Nomnoms, Mom and I will feature our TOP 5 FAVORITE STREET FOOD BUYS IN BANGKOK!!!
It is said that if you want any travel to count, you must wear your comfy clothes then walk the backstreets to experience their local street foods. Not only you get to see the people and how they live their lives, you also see diverse cultures converge for a common love of food.
YES! Food! Like any budget puppy trippers out there, everyone would agree that you get to save a lot of money this way. And you get to be up-close and personal with these amazing people for a day. So off we go and explore the streets of Yaowarat, where come nightfall, the main thoroughfare in Bangkok’s Chinatown transform into street food haven.
TOP 5: Spring Rolls (Poh Pia Tod, ปอเปี๊ยะทอด)
For only 10-15 Baht, you get to eat a wide variety of skewered treats from Spring rolls, mushrooms, spicy sausages and tofu deep fried into golden perfection in giant woks. But among these, our favorite is the Deep fried Spring rolls. This is Thailand’s take on the iconic Asian spring roll. It is mostly made from glass (mung bean) noodles, bean sprouts, wood ear mushrooms and shredded carrot with meat of choice.
TOP 4: Mixed Fruit Smoothie (Nam Pban Ponlamai Ruam)
Mom and I love these. The finest seasonal tropical fruits blended with ice and sweet coconut water makes for the finest and freshest treat ever. From Banana, pineapple, watermelon. kiwi, dragon fruit – they have it!
TOP 2: Grilled Pork (Moo Ping, หมูปิ้ง)
These tasty treats can be found at smokey roadside grills which occupy Bangkok’s streets. Delicious bite-sized cuts of pork meat are marinated, skewered then barbecued on the Bangkok Street Food grills. The marinade consists of oyster sauce, dark soy, coconut milk, garlic and palm sugar. The early morning vendors grill and sizzle these sticks over fiery charcoals until the meat starts to caramelise.
TOP 1: Thai Fried Noodles (Pad Thai, ผัดไทย)
Our top fave! We never miss our chance to eat a nice pipping hot Pad Thai! The basic Pad Thai comes as stir fried egg noodles with beansprouts, egg and other Thai flavourings such as dry shrimp. The dish is simple, flavorsome and a serving of Thai signature flavours added with squeeze over lime or sprinkle some chili flakes. Ground peanuts also give it more crunch.
We love food! We love to experience it by the streets, up close and personal. So we still have a few more food articles that, I must say, grab a spot in my runner-upper! Woof~
a. Oh I love these breads~ you have 18 spread to choose from!!! Best eaten when still warm and fluffy. I don’t know what exactly they are called but – I love them! We ate em all!
b. Khanom bueang or their version of crepes are precious!!! They have the sweet which has sweetened coconuts and caramel or the savory one~
c. Pork Rind – this is their version of Chicharon! We usually bring these babies home for pasalubong!
