Some of my favorite street food shots in Thailand. I loved taking pictures in this country. I whittled down 1400 pictures to 983, and now I’m slowly sharing a few of my favorites. A lot of these shots came from our days in Bangkok, but many from other parts of Thailand – street food really is everywhere.
I’m curious what looks good enough to eat to you, and what you’d just pass on by – are you adventurous, do you eat street food? (Want more street food? Check out my post on Street Food in India)
Quail eggs cracked fresh and cooked up bright and yellow.
Dried fish of all kinds – these cuttlefish (or seppie, in Italian) spoke to me particularly.
Sweet corn on the cob, or just the kernels in a cup. (I miss corn on the cob in Italy – it’s called pannocchio, but rarely available and often “sotto vuoto” – shrink-wrapped ears which don’t seem very fresh).
Mountain strawberries I saw everywhere – for savvy shoppers, note that they stuff strawberry leaves at the bottom of those bags to make them seem fuller. Probably still a deal. I loved the dried strawberries rolled in sugar (diabetics, beware).
Fava beans are popular in Italy but eaten fresh or dried…I’d never seen them fried like in Thailand. They were great to munch on.
I’ll never get tired of grilled shrimp, in any country.
Simply put..balls of many types. Better called “satay” – all types of meat and tofu skewered and grilled so it’s hot when you eat it. Some of them cost as little as 5 baht for a stick (that’s 12 cents in case you’re using the Euro!)
An obsession and a great way to cool off – a whole “mini” pineapple cut up and served with skewers for less than a dollar/euro.
Roasted peanuts which we carried around to stave off hunger later in the trip (when street food wasn’t as accessible).
