<insert funny English accent > “Yessir, you like your food hot, spicy or Thai-Spicy? Yes yes, very vegetarian. It is fresh vegetables and pork!” </accent> God, I love Asia. Mijn favoriete Streetfood van Azie, here goes.
After being home for 3 weeks, the cheap street eats are probably one of the things I miss the most being back in Europe. And the sun. A lot of sun.
Don’t know what to eat? There’s favorite dishes and plenty of blogs out there to get you started. And if you can’t find anything and want to go cheap, just take a seat at one of those plastic little chairs with where the most locals eat and let them pick the dish for you. You won’t regret it. And Pro Biotics does wonders for the weak stomachs like mine…
Here’s my favorite foods, no particular order. And you should try them too. And when in Thailand, at least go for
medium spicy, hot spicy, Thai Spicy once. And take your selfie stick.
