Bangkok Food trail
a) The Street Food Capital of the World Street food in Bangkok provides convenient, delicious and cheap meals and it’s one of the purest ways to get in touch with the local culture but can be a little intimidating for foreigners new to the city. Street food is a quintessential part of the Bangkok experience.
Wherever you go in the city, food stalls are plentiful and you will find a high concentration of them in busy areas. Some street vendors operate in groups, especially in local markets, which means you can go to the same place every night and have a different choice of meal. Some even open around the clock. Bangkok street food comes in many guises.
It might be a humble cart on the side of the road, it could be a collection of stalls in a local market or even a traditional shop house that has tables spilling out onto the pavement. Vendors can be seen busily stir frying in an ancient wok, pounding papaya, grilling meat skewers or boiling noodles. Diners that are willing to swap white tablecloths for plastic tables that run alongside traffic-jammed roads are rewarded with foods that delight all of the senses.
What makes Thai cuisine so special is the blend od sweet, sour, salty & spices. The spiciness of Thai dishes are balanced out by the use of sweet basil, cilantro, lemon grass, galingale, roots and grasses. Be a food adventurous, enjoy Thai street food.
