There’s almost no need to ever step foot into a restaurant when visiting Thailand. The abundance of fresh, cheap and delicious street foods means some of the best meals of your life will be had while sitting on a street corner or juggling a plate of food and beer. Next time you’re in Siam, don’t miss out on these.


Pad Thai

The noodle dish that launched a thousand Thai restaurants in the United States is even more delicious in its home country. Cheap and plentiful, you’ll find this at every market and street corner and while quality varies, there’s no such thing as bad pad Thai.


Kha Nia Man (Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango)

This sweet dish, typically eaten as dessert, combines cooked sticky rice with coconut milk and sugar and then topped with mangos. The result is a sweet and tasty dish you’ll spoon up.

Khao Neow Moo Ping (Grilled Pork and Sticky Rice)

The concept is simple: grilled pork on a skewer with a side of sticky rice in a plastic bag. The execution is what seals the deal. Covered in a sticky sauce, the pork is super satisfying and just the right amount to tide you over to your next meal.


Tom Kha Gai (Chicken Galangal Soup)

This coconut milk-rich soup makes up the broth in this dish loaded with shredded chicken and mushrooms. Topped with lemongrass, it’s unmistakably Thai.


Moogata (Thai Barbecue)

Similar to Korean barbecue, moogata spots feature all-you-can-eat meat that you grill as you eat. Loosen your belt before sitting down!
