Street food in Thailand

Posted on

Well, street food in Thailand is quite a thriving market. You can get your fill from the exotic (animal or sea food), the banal rice items, milk, hot soup, fruits … uff! You think of it, and it might be in one of the by-lanes next to your hotel, shopping area, or even close to the pharmacy. Most of their eats are not as much fried as they are grilled – and I found that very interesting!

I captured some pictures of food items that looked colorful, interesting and new to my eyes.

Grilled Octopus anyone ?


Grilled shrimp on skewer – food on the go!


Angry birds – actually angry prawns


Crunchy beetles anyone?


These Larvae were a hot sell !

And finally the food we understand best… Just down every street of exoticism , you can also find….

A Mcdonalds!


…. A McDonalds! A Language that speaks to every faint-hearted tourist 🙂
