Thai food

OK, I have to admit that Thai food is so good that you want more. All these Pad Thai, these Pad See Ew, these Tom Yum soup and for dessert… that Mango Sticky Rice, writing about it make wish I had some in my belly now. Actually, in the streets of Thailand, there’s plenty of street food and it is really cheap, for example a Pad Thai costs around $1.50. Also, there is a lot of fruit stands, Mom, Dad, and Hugo enjoyed the papaya which is my enemy. In this article, I’ll talk to you about Thai food; the dishes, desserts, the street food, the public market, the night markets, etc.

Markets

img_3313Of course, I need to talk about the Thai markets, because it is the main source of food in Thailand. The night markets run only in the evening, sometimes quiet streets become  very, very big bazaars. The busiest markets are often the Saturday or Sunday night markets depending on the city. They are huge, even bigger than the Indian bazaars! Markets are full of street food, the little stands often sell the same things from Pad Thai, to Mango Sticky Rice, there are also plenty of smoothie bars and cooked meat stands. The markets are not just a source of food but also a source of clothing, decorations and souvenirs for tourists. The rest of the week, there are also public markets which are smaller but as delicious.

Foreign food

Several people in Thailand come from other countries in Asia and you can discover their typical dishes. We had some delicious Japanese Ramen bowls that were huge, and we had an extra bowl of noodles, it was really good! Also we ate Chinese Wonton soups, they were full of meat and fresh vegetables, I liked that too! I love Asian food because the portions are big and it is sold on the streets. We also ate at Bangkok Poutine a restaurant owns by Bruno Blanchet, I ate poutine to sausages.

Finally, I love street food, it is often only 40 Baht per dish and the portions are very large. We have been to a large night market in Sukhothai and Chiang Mai covering several streets, it was huge and there was a lot of food choices. My favorite Thai food is Pad See Ew and Hugo loves Mango Sticky Rice, Mom prefers Pad Thai and Dad the Stir Fried Vegetables with sticky rice.
