I was lucky enough to recently have a two week holiday in Thailand with my lovely husband. As well as the glorious weather, lovely beaches and fantastic shopping, the food is most certainly a highlight. So I wanted to share my thoughts on what to eat in Thailand.
What to eat in Thailand
A couple of favourites included:
Red, green and yellow thai curries
Laab (spicy salad)
Fresh (the freshest I have ever had) seafood
Tom Yum Soup
As well as the food, Thai beer is delicious. I don’t think there is anything that can beat a cold Chang (although my husband’s vote goes for Singha) on a humid night in Thailand.
Luckily, Tesco sells Chang so I have been able to keep on enjoying the taste of Thailand, minus the warm weather and glorious beaches though!
Where to eat
Thailand is crammed full of amazing places to eat, from street food to cafes, restaurants and hotels.
My top pick for Bangkok dining would be to make sure you seek out Krua Apsorn. The owners have a few branches, we went to the branch closest to the Khao San Road and Democracy Monument. Try the crab omelette – it sounds like it shouldn’t work but it 100% does. My mouth is watering thinking about it!
After two weeks of trying a huge range of different foods I found it quite hard to readjust to the food back home. I think the different flavours in Thai cooking, in my opinion, make it the tastiest cuisine in the world.
The cuisine offers a wide range to suit all tastes, and there is plenty for vegetarians to choose from too.
