Street food in Thailand

Hello! Today, I am linking up with Travel Tuesday and talking about some of the best meals I've experienced while traveling. Of course, it (almost) goes without saying that the best meal I've ever had while traveling has been at Lo Zodiaco in Rome. However, today I'm going to talk about a whole slew of meals: Thai street food.

Now, you may have heard some bad experiences with street food. However, if you are smart, and follow a few basic tips, you should be just fine! Two quick tips: if you have a sensitive stomach, I would perhaps avoid anything except for the fresh produce. Otherwise, feel free to go at it- just avoid the raw meat, as you never know how long that has been sitting out in the blistering heat!

Throughout Thailand, there were various street markets operating at all hours of the days and nights. Of course, with the markets also came delicious street food! Above were delicious chicken kebabs with onions and peppers. The flavors all sizzled together perfectly for an appetizing treat!

Of course, being in a tropical area there were also tons of stands with coconut milk and coconut ice cream! Here's Nick looking super happy before getting some coconut ice cream. Check out all of the pictures below for some more of the street food offered!

fresh grilled corn on the cob!
grilled octopus for 10 baht= 35 cents
some scary looking grilled fish!
raw seafood…I'd stay away from this!
fresh pad thai for 50 baht= $1.50

Quail eggs, a plate of 6 for 20 baht= 60 cents
fresh crab, 100 grams for 30 baht= $1
some mystery food
All of the street food in Thailand was relatively cheap, with smaller snacks usually being anywhere from 10-40 baht (between 25 cents and $1.25). Of course, there was also tons of fresh produce, especially while we were in Bangkok. One of my goals for the trip was to find deep-fried scorpion, which is considered to be a delicacy in Thailand. Unfortunately, we never found it- or Nick never pointed it out to me! In any case, the street food was always delicious and fresh. Nick and I never had any issues with eating it, but then we also didn't try any of the more exotic items or things that were uncooked. When eating in Thailand, as long as you are smart about what you are consuming everything will go smoothly for you! What is the most exotic thing you have ever eaten?
