I love food, and part of my excitement for Thailand is to explore the Food markets.
Whilst in Thailand, I took the opportunity to go on a cooking course, there are so many and so many good ones. Ask the hotel/hostel that you are at to book yourself on one. They are a fantastic way to meet people as well as get to learn about the local cuisine and produce.
The Second most useful website I have come across, which made me extremely excited about Thai food is Nomadic Matt’s “Best Thai Dishes”
- Spring Rolls
- Chicken Soup
- Mango Sticky Rice
- Kai Joew – Fried omelette
- Banana Pancakes.
- Green or Red Thai Curry.
- Char Siew Bun – They serve a similar version of this in PingPong, one of my favourite restaurants in London.
Other things to try are deep fried crickets, scorpions.
