If you have adventure in mind, then Thailand is the perfect country for you. Not only because of Thailand’s rich culture, beautiful landscape and vibrant nightlife, but also because the food is like nothing you’ve ever seen, smelled or tasted. Whether it’s green tea waffles, Pad Thai, Durian, or fried crickets, your senses will be pleasantly (or in the case of Durian, possibly unpleasantly) overwhelmed with all of the new and diverse food choices available in Thailand.
The uniqueness of Thai food was something I appreciated, and if you’re anything like me it will be one of the things you miss when you go back to The States. It’s hard to choose just one favorite dish, so here are 5 of my new favorite foods that I tried in Thailand.
1. Phat Si-io
Dark and light soy sauce, garlic, broad rice noodles, Chinese broccoli, egg, and a choice of beef, pork, or chicken.
2. Khao Soi
Northern style egg noodles in yellow curry soup topped with fried noodles.
3. Mango Sticky Rice
Mango slices with sticky rice and sweet and condensed milk.
4. Coconut Milk Soup
Coconut milk soup with chicken, lemongrass, fresh ginger, and mushrooms.
5. Pattaya Fried Rice
Fried rice covered in an omelet pouch.
