KHAOSAN THAI RESTAURANT
When somewhere, eat as the locals do. That’s a common refrain that travellers often hear and there is indeed wisdom to it. Of course, Thai food is a cuisine now well-known even on the international stage. So it makes sense that many visitors to Thailand want to dine at the source. Dive into the real flavours of it and all that. But did you know that this can also be found in Khaosan road? We have a Khaosan Thai restaurant waiting to be discovered by you: Streats Bangkok Khaosan!
THAI FOOD REDEFINED
What makes Thai food so popular? Some say it’s the sheer versatility. Thai food can be roughly grouped into 5 regional cuisines, each with their own unique character and style. But one thing all Thai food has in common is intricate flavours and attention to detail. Eating Thai food will always delight your palate and treat your eyes. More often than not, the food will not only taste good but have some kind of nutritional benefit, too. It’s all about the harmonious melding of flavours. As a result, Thai culture places great importance on food and having a great meal. Dining by your lonesome or with company? It’s all good.
THAI DISHES 101
Before we dig deeper, there’s always the question of what dishes to try when experiencing a new cuisine. While everyone has their own preferences, a starting point never harmed anyone. Get ready for our personal recommendation of Thai dishes to start with!
- Tom yum kung: A fiery, herbaceous and irresistible soup served either with clear or creamy broth. Most popularly enjoyed with prawns, though available with other meat or as a veggie-only option.
- Pad Thai: Probably the most well-known Thai dish! Enjoy the classic version with your choice of protein, or go luxe with the signature Lobster Pad Thai!
- Larb: Finely minced meat, heat, toasted sticky rice powder and fresh herbs. The result is an irresistible meat salad that goes perfectly with sticky rice.
- Yum: You’ll be saying “yum!” once you try this spicy salad! Available in many possible variants, but the Streats spicy seafood one will have you coming back for more.
- Khao pad: A classic comfort meal. Enjoy this wok-fried dish with your choice of protein or classic vegetables only.
- Mango & sticky rice: A classic Thai dessert, for good reason. Sweet, satisfying and highlighting the heavenly flavour of ripe Thai mango.
But of course, the list of delicious Thai food can go on and on. Discovering your personal favourites is part of all the fun!
