Thailand

The Flavors of Thailand

We went on this family trip about six years ago and I remember having fun (inspite of the fact that I got a really bad cough and wasn’t feeling well). Nothing can stop us from sampling the delicious food Bangkok had to offer. And this was the family’s first international trip, so it’s memorable in a big way. ❤

Food is everywhere in Bangkok; we could never walk far without seeing some food cart selling a treat.

I want some too!

Thai milk tea has a very distinct flavor. Compared to the Taiwanese bubble milk tea it’s much stronger.

There’s an abundance of little eateries along the busy streets that we never really found the need to find a fancy restaurant.

Green curry isn’t too spicy compared to the red one. The tom yum soup is a delightful combination of sour, sweet, and hot.

The food courts in malls are also filled with great eats. The prices are slightly more expensive but the flavors are just as good.

A lot of the food is spicy so prepare your tastebuds for some hot food. Wash it down with some Thai milk tea, then prepare to eat again.

Milk tea with tapioca pearls, vermicelli soup served in a coconut bowl, and chicken skewers…they make me one happy girl!

Thanks Bangkok for the wonderful food memories!
