Street food heaven
Bangkok is a great food destination because it has an amazing variety of cuisines from all over Thailand and beyond. There is something for everyone, from traditional Thai dishes to international cuisine. Street food is extremely popular in Bangkok and you can find anything from noodles and skewers to fresh fruit and desserts. There is even a simple noodle shop named Jay Fai, which was the first street food stall in the world to earn a Michelin star. No visit to Bangkok would be complete without trying some of the famous street food - it's a great way to experience the city, the cuisine, and the local culture. A word of advice, do not ask for spicy in Thailand if you do not want to experience the "triple burn"; it burns on the way in, while inside, and well, on the way out.
What to eat in Bangkok
Prominent dishes include tom yum, a spicy soup, pad thai, a stir-fried rice noodle dish with shrimp, peanuts, a scrambled egg, and vegetables, som tam, green papaya salad, and a variety of red, green and yellow curries that range from mild to hot as hell. The perfect way to end any meal is with mango sticky rice, a world-famous dessert with fresh mango, coconut milk and peanuts. Thai ice tea has a very distinct flavor that matches the food well and helps cool you off in this often very hot city, most people drink it with milk, but it is pretty great without as well. Last but not least, tropical fruits are delicious in Thailand so have some fresh mango and perhaps even some smelly durian.
