Top Thai Street Foods

Top Thai Street Foods
Thailand is renowned for its wide range of delicious dishes available from street stalls and is often described as the street food capital of the world. The meals available at street stalls in Thailand are often made right in front of your eyes, meaning they are generally dishes that are quick to prepare such as stir fries. Alternatively some vendors pre-prepare large vats of slower-cooked foods such as curries and soups. We've compiled a list of some of the top Thai street foods to entice your taste buds.

Tom Yum Soup
This is Thailand's most famous hot soup and is a favourite on the streets of Thailand. It generally contains shrimp, mushrooms, lemongrass, chillis, kaffir lime leaves, as well as other herbs. This soup is adapted depending on which meats are available and can be made with prawns, chicken or vegetables.

Pad Thai
Perhaps the most famous Thai dish, this fast, nutritious dish is another street food favourite. Pad Thai is a stir fried noodle dish with a subtle balance of flavours, usually served with crushed peanuts, fresh chives and a dash of lime.  The dish can also be served with either meat or seafood.

Kai Yang
This Thai version of barbequed chicken is a staple in any roadside stall. The full flavoured chicken is flavoured with garlic, lemongrass, turmeric and other local herbs and spices and makes for a tasty snack for any time of the day.

Kaang Daeng (Red Curry)
The most popular of the Thai Curries, Kaang Daeng is a delicate mixture of herbs and spices enriched with coconut cream. This dish can be made with chicken, beef and duck.  

Kaang Kiew Wan (Green Curry)
The rich coconut milk enriched curry with an aromatic basil and lemongrass infusion is an ideal street dish for anyone who loves spicy green chillies.

Nam Prik Kaeng Kari (Yellow Curry)
A spicy blend of turmeric, chillies, cumin and other aromatic curry spices in the Thai Yellow Curry reflects the Indian influence on Thai cuisine. This dish can be served with meat, poultry, seafood and vegetables.
