THAILAND: Trying Something Exotic in the City

March 24, 2018

Do you like something spicy to spice up your life? Do you love eating different flavors of spices? Do you wanna try to fill up you stomach with best spicy foods? Well, I am talking about Thai cuisine. Me, myself is not fond of eating too colorful dishes. Do you wanna hear something about the Thai cuisine? So sit back and grab something to drink as I make you salivate with the mouth watering dishes in Thailand.

Never did I wonder that Thai cuisine will be the spiciest food I am going to taste. I thought I am over with it when I first tried the Korea's famous Samyang spicy noodles. My perception was changed when my significant other brought me to a place like the "carenderia" in Philippines. There we ate the famous Tom Yum soup.

I was surprised when it came infront of me. It looks extremely hot with the strong aroma of spices I don't know. I was afraid to taste it at first but I was so curious about the taste because of the many people ordering and enjoy it as their meal. I knew it! That was distinctly hot and sour. The soup or its broth is made of fresh information such as lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, galangal, lime juice, fish sauce and chili peppers. Would you still try it?

I know most of you tried to eat Pad Thai. Pad thai is a stir-fried noodle dish. It is a famous street food in Thailand and not only the locals are enjoying it but also the foreigners. In Philippines, there are a lot of food stalls or Thai restaurants that are never run out of Pad Thai.

Pad Thai is composed of soaked rice noodles which are stir fried with eggs and crushed tofu. Tamarind pulp, fish sauce, dried shrimps, garlic, red chili pepper and palm sugar are added to complete the flavor of Pad Thai. You can also add some toppings like chicken, fresh shrimp, squid or crab depending on your taste.

Let's move on to their bizarre foods. I am talking about exotic street food that nowadays takes place especially from bloggers or tourists who are traveling in Thailand mainly became an instant food porn by the netizens.

These carts are mostly seen whenever you visit Khaosan Rd. The big plates were filled of unlikely exotic foods that is hard to swallow at first. YES! At first! Once you tried one, you'll find that they actually make decent finger food. YUMMERS!!!

You can pick any of them at your own risk. They sell a variety of insects like Hon Mhai(silk worms), Mang Da(water bugs), Rod Duan(bamboo worms), Takatan(grasshopper) also includes Scorpions and many to mention.

When I went to Amphawa Floating market, it was not an ordinary floating market you can see in that place. There were a lot of restaurants that serves various of seafoods around the river. From spicy fried crabs, shrimps, squids, etc. to breads, cakes and other desserts. You will never be hungry while seeing the fishermen rowing their boats.



They are also selling fresh herbs and spices. You can buy as many packs as you can. Some foreigners opt to buy their best spices as souvenirs rather than buying unnecessary clothes or materials. If you're a person who loves cooking, Thailand would probably be the place for you.

How many of these foods mentioned above have you eaten? Let me know in the comments section below!
