If you were stranded on a desert island and could choose only one cuisine for the rest of your days, which would it be?
Have you ever considered this? The thought of choosing just one cuisine for the rest of our days makes us break out in sweats.
But change that question to: “What's your favorite place for street food?”
And we can breathe again. Thailand rises to the top of the list.
If our experience is any indication, street food in Thailand is delicious, available everywhere, hygienic (we never got sick…and we sampled A LOT), and remarkably inexpensive. It's possible to eat something different every night of the week and spend about $1-$2 per meal doing so. And there's something for everyone – vegetarians, pescetarians, and meatatarians alike.
We've enjoyed dining in Thai restaurants in Europe and in America. And thanks to a cooking class in Chiang Mai a few years ago we are able to craft our own Thai creations. But no experience matches eating on the streets and in the night markets of Thailand. There's just something about the freshness, the variety, the abundance.
So, without further ado, enjoy a selection of food photos from Thailand.
