Thai cuisine is a complete celebration for the various types of street foods. Fresh and fragrant ingredients like lemongrass, chilies, coconut milk, shallots, fish sauce, kaffir lime and galangal dominate the dishes. It is a unique medley of each of the four basic tastes – sweet, spicy, salty and sour.
As the sun brightens up, you can spot a cluster of street hawkers stocked with local grub. Wake up to the freshness of ready-to-eat fruits like mangosteen, rambutan, rose apple and the welcoming whiff of hot banana pancakes; and enjoy the streets savouring every sip of the Thai iced tea called ChaaYen or mostly rejoicing over a freshly squeezed Thai sweet orange juice.
