Thailand food | 6 delicious foods to eat in Thailand

Thailand Food

Unsurprisingly, Thailand is one of the best places in the world when it comes to food. With hundreds of dishes to eat, there’s so much to eat and the different flavours and spices are limitless. While Thai food is known for being spicy, Thai food is actually a blend of different flavours, ranging from sweet and salty to bitter and spicy. Fresh herbs and spices are found in every dish, with influences from neighboring countries like China, Laos, Myanmar and Malaysia.

If you’re new to Thai cuisine and don’t know where to start, these five dishes and drinks are a great introduction to Thai food.

Korea travel | A guide for first-time travelers to Seoul

Seoul - Travel Guide

Although Korea was not part of my original travel plans in April 2016, I was stoked to learn that I can stopover in Seoul. With only two days in Seoul, my plans revolved around eating, market hopping, and visiting sites along the way.

At first glance, Seoul does not feel big, but it is actually very large in terms of population. With  over 25.4 million people, Seoul itself is almost the size of Canada! Not surprisingly, this city is also the fourth largest metropolitan area in Asia. What I love most about Seoul is the liveliness of the city, regardless of the time of day.

Thailand food guide | Bangkok desserts

Bangkok Dessert

If you read my previous post about Bangkok food, you’ll know that Bangkok is foodie heaven to most, and desserts are no exception.  Like most big cities in Asia, Bangkok has plenty to choose from when it comes to food options.

Surprisingly, finding dessert in Bangkok was a struggle.  Why?  Because dessert in Bangkok is super pricey and costs more than two (or more!) meals.  Sadly, dessert in Bangkok is deceptive in that it often looks better than it actually tastes.

Now, I am not a picky eater when it comes to dessert, but I found most desserts in Bangkok were too sugary.  It’s almost as if the vendor added a lot of sugar to mask a flavourless dessert.

After trying tons of different desserts, I have put together some recommendations for dessert in Bangkok:

Thailand food guide | Chiang Mai dessert diaries

Chiang Mai Dessert - 0 - ensquaredaired

When I was planning for my Chiang Mai Trip and pondering about all the food I will get to try, I did not put much thought into sweets and was pleasantly surprised to find a decent variety of desserts to choose from.  I found that in past travels, South Asian countries aren’t big on super sweet stuff, which is what I prefer.  Rather, their desserts are simpler and less sweet, like fruit or sticky rice.  Luckily, that’s not the case in Chiang Mai.

Chiang Mai Street Food - 0 - cover photo
Chiang Mai, Thailand’s largest city in the north has amazing (and incredibly cheap!) street food.

I literally budgeted $10 CAD a day for food and was able to comfortably stay within that budget while eating whatever my heart desired. Not only will you and your wallet feel heavier, your taste buds will explode with the flavourful dishes in Thailand.

Singapore Food | Dessert edition

 

Singapore Dessert - 0 - ensquaredaired

If you read my first post about eating in Singapore, you know that I only spent four days in the country and needed to develop a strategy on how I ate (If only I could eat endless amounts of food).  Singaporean cuisine is so multicultural that you can find almost any type of ethnic food, depending on what you’re craving that day.  My blog post on dessert in Singapore will hopefully give you an idea of the types of desserts that you can find in Singapore as well as an idea of what prices look like for the meals.
