This is a slightly different ‘Crave’ than usual, as we’re not sending you to a specific bar or café or restaurant, instead we’re just urging you to eat street food.
We’re sure that the majority of you have tried street food when travelling through South and/or Central America and South East Asia, but for those of you who weren’t quite ready for it, next time please: just embrace it.
We’re focusing on street food in Thailand today, just for fun.
You can usually tell from the line in front of a street food vendor how good their treats are, so if you’re not super sure what you want to eat or who to buy from, just follow the crowds.
We always suggest trying whatever smells the best or is the most adventurous, but if you’re a little delicate, stick to a vegetarian option.
Our favourite street food experiences in Thailand have been Chinese-style deep fried donuts, egg noodles in Tom Yum broth, Pad Si Ew, Som Tum salad and the ever-faithful Pad Thai.
Apart from the satisfaction you get with really good food, there’s something about sitting on a corner consuming a meal that cost you just a dollar that simply can’t be replicated at home.
