Traveling Throw Back!!!! - Thailand

on

Here are some photos of food adventures from Thailand... I was very impressed with their wide array of dishes and fresh cuisine. I would honestly rather eat in Thailand than in the United States because of the fresh produce available and healthier choices. Enjoy!

Best Pad Thai on the planet... The spring rolls were sooo good too! You could normally get pad thai and a spring roll for around 80 cents - $1! (Pad Thai is a dish of stir-fried rice noodles with eggs, fish sauce, tamarind juice, red chili pepper, plus any combination of bean sprouts, shrimp, chicken or tofu and garnished with peanuts). Pretty much the most delicious thing ever...



River crabs anyone?? Ick! It drove me nuts how food was always sitting in the heat for hours at a time...



Fried chicken and the dish in the forefront is "tom sam" which is a VERY popular dish. Tom Sam is spicy papaya salad


The street meat and food vendors in Bangkok is out of this world.. There seem to be more street vendors than people... Every corner, alley, thoroughfare has TONS of vendors selling everything from octopus balls to Pad Thai to cream filled donuts



Snacks in Lumphini Park in the heart of Bangkok



An extremely overpriced but delicious dinner that our tuk tuk driver abandoned us at. The pineapple rice with cashews on top was heavenly! Love the heart shaped rice too :)



Drank one of these iced coffees every morning while we were away- they sweeten them with condensed milk so they are very rich and delicious! You can get them at most Vietnamese or Thai restaurants in town as well



Mill worms and other insects on the famous Koh San Road



Biggest grasshoppers I have ever seen...



I got sick in Bangkok so had an aversion to Thai food for a few days... Went to a British pub and had a roast dinner. The beef was pretty horrible but the Yorkshire pudding was one of the best I've ever had! It was ENORMOUS!



Also at the British pub James ordered Fisherman's pie which was a cheesy, creamy delight!


Fresh fish and beach side BBQ's were EVERYWHERE.. I am kissing a baracuda here!


Decided on the red snapper. He was very tasty

What is Thailand without a bucket? Samsung (their rum), Coca Cola, Red Bull and ice



We took a cooking class in Koh Phangan (home of the famous full moon party) and here are my spring rolls!


This coconut soup was my FAV! Soooo flavorful and rich



Pad Thai I made! SO GOOD! (recipes coming soon!)



Green Curry.. I've never really eaten much curry but if you are a "curry virgin" like I was green curry is an EXCELLENT way to try it out. Green curry is a sweeter and creamier version of the classic dish.


This is just a photo of random food court food.. still weird to me how it is all "open air"

Pizza at the airport. EVERY restaurant had pizza and spaghetti alongside the Thai selections


I think it's so interesting seeing what McDonald's from around the globe serve! When I was in Japan a Big Mac meal was $65 Canadian! In certain types of Europe they serve beer, venison and rabbit! In Australia the "Oz Burger" has beet root, a pineapple ring and a fried egg
