10 Delicious Things To Eat in Thailand

1. Anything on a stick

Chances are if it’s edible meat of any description, you’ll find it in Thailand threaded onto a skewer and grilled. Chicken, beef, pork, seafood, whatever – it’s all fair game, and it’s always delicious. Extra delicious if you can find honey marinated grilled pork skewers, those are the best.

2. Noodles with wontons

There’s a pretty noticeable Chinese influence in Thailand, and you can see it in a lot of the food. Fresh noodles with BBQ pork and wontons are one of those dishes that allows the Chinese influence to sneak in, but it’s so good no one seems to mind.

3. Satay chicken skewers

This is a simple dish, but a huge street food favourite. Grilled chicken on a stick with flavourful, delicious satay sauce. Really good option on the way home from a big night on Bangla Road.

4. Freshly grilled seafood

Find a decent seafood restaurant (look for somewhere super busy), pick out your dinner from the monster crustaceans displayed on ice out the front, ask to have them grilled and go with a simple butter garlic sauce on the side. Amazing!

5. Pork fried rice

Another dish with a Chinese influence, fried rice is always a classic. It’s a great one to order from the street food vendors at night, particularly if you’re looking for something a bit more comforting and familiar.

6. Nutella crepes

Every bit as good as the Parisian stuff. Actually, they’re better here, because more often than not, your Nutella and strawberry stuffed crepe will be doused in condensed milk before it’s served up to you. If that sounds unappealing to you, it’s only because you haven’t had one after a few cheap cocktails at 1am. You should try it.

7. Pad Thai

Duh – can’t well go to Thailand without eating Pad Thai!! Skip the tacky Westernised restaurants and head straight to the street food vendors; that’s where the best stuff comes from. Grab a fresh coconut to drink from while you’re at it – absolute winning combination.

8. Fresh fruit smoothies

These little stalls are set up absolutely everywhere and are the best way to feel better about your holiday food intake. Fresh mangos, strawberries, watermelon and pineapples all blended with ice into a cool, thick cup of healthy deliciousness. They also double up as great happy hour options if you buy your own liqueur at one of the infinite 7/11s floating around 😉

9. Coconut sticky rice with fresh mango

Another Thai classic – thick, sticky, coconut rice topped with sweet, fresh mango. It’s one of those dishes you don’t even need to be hungry to eat – it’s just soooo good!

10. Coconut ice cream

Yeah, they like their coconut over there. And when it’s so delicious and fresh, you can’t blame them for coming up with so many ways to use it. Freshly churned coconut ice cream at the end of a hot day is complete perfection. And because it’s technically made from fruit, you can eat as much as you like without feeling guilty! Everyone wins!

I’m a Melbourne girl who loves to travel, eat, cook, explore, read, photograph, wander, learn, discover and especially write :) I use my blog as a kind of electronic journal and time capsule; I want to be able to look back over my adventures and remember them all, I want to share them with like-minded people, and I want to leave some sort of record of what life was like for a girl like me. Because, over time, things change. Lifestyles evolve and cities are re-built and cultures adapt; things are pretty good right here and now, and I want that to be recorded somewhere, so that in years to come people can see what it was like “back in the day…” :)Throughout my travels, I've also found that the one thing that connects us more strongly than anything else is food. No matter what we eat or how its prepared, food is universal; sitting down to a meal has an incredible power to cross cultural divides and bring people together, so I also write a lot about food I've eaten around the world and food I cook that's been inspired by my life and travels.
