Thai Food Collection

Two weeks in Northern Thailand are a challenge to the palate – and a pleasure for the body and the wallet 🙂

One of the most expensive meals I had was 195 Baht (about 9.50 BGN or 4.80€). And it consisted of three dishes, a dessert and a coffee/espresso) and was in the resort where I stayed.  All the rest that I ate during these two weeks was much cheaper. But then, of course, I ate at street-side restaurants with plastic tables, where variety at one stall is limited but everything is fresh and perfected.

Here is a little selection:

Shrimp with “kale” in the centre of Chinag Mai: 50 THB, 2.50 BGN, 1.27€)

Desert: Sticky rice with mango and coconut. 35 THB, 1.75 BGN, 0.90€…

Fried “morning glory” as a side dish. 30 THB, 1.50 BGN, 0.76€…

 

Spicy squid with mixed vegetables. 50 THB, 2.50 BGN, 1.27€…

Chicken soup with coconut. 40 THB, 2 BGN, 1€

 

Khao Soi, the local noodle specialty with chicken. 30 THB, 1.50 BGN, 0,76€…at the “Sunday Walking Street Market”… Deep fried squid parts (local market): 10 THB, 0.50 BGN, 0.26€…

Squid skewer. 10 THB, 0.50 BGN, 0.26€…

Here it gets “expensive”: a whole fish (kingfish in this case) with garlic and ginger at 200 THB, 10 BGN, 5.06€…note the enhancing chillie side spice:)

Wherever you eat, there is always some healthy chillies available to spice up your life. Normally at least three versions: dried ground chillie flakes, chillies in fish sauce and chillies marinated in vinegar…just look at this mouth-watering condiment 🙂

Spicy seafood salad…45 THB, 2.20 BGN, 1.10€…

Mixed vegetables with squid. 40 THB, 2.00BGN, 1.03€.

And so on…and so forth…

Wherever you go, wherever you look: delicious food a plentiful 🙂 At rather acceptable prices 😉 How could I have possibly said “no”?

Bon apetit!
