What to eat in Thailand

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.

For more ideas on what to eat when you’re travelling, here’s my guide to the best food in San Francisco.

What to eat in Thailand

A couple of favourites included:

  • Pad thai
  • Red, green and yellow thai curries
  • Massaman curry
  • Satay
  • Laab (spicy salad)
  • Fresh (the freshest I have ever had) seafood
  • Yam Talay
  • Tom Yum Soup
  • Pandan pancakes

Thai beer

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!

Different flavours

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.

If you like Thai desserts, try my banana and coconut bread and butter pudding. It uses the flavours that are ubiquitous with Thai cuisine, partnered with a British classic.
