Whenever I visit to a new place, I can never control myself from having tasted the local foods. According to me visiting to a place or enjoy the travelling would be incomplete until you taste the local foods. Local foods are the story tellers of the history and cultural practice of that area and it also draw the outline of the geography. The local street foods always snatch my concern. I always think that the street foods have the personal touch of that person, who is making them and that is why I can relate myself with the street foods. The elaborate display and context make me a past of them. Whenever I speak about street foods, Thailand reminds me the soulful welcome from the delicious varieties of street food.
Bangkok welcomed me with the foods on street. Some of them were known and some of them were suspicious and unknown but overall they were able to stimulate my taste buds. The way they display ingredients and process foods, it is an art and would definitely make you stand for a while. It is said that some of the street foods in Bangkok are rivals of the big names of restaurants. Tasting food is only to taste the local touches. So, I used to choose the streets that were crowded with local people so that I can taste the reality, as the vendors were not there to display for the tourists. Before tasting the foods, I suggest you should study about the foods and ingredients, as some may not be good for your health or some experiences would not be delightful. I have made a list of few areas, where I enjoyed the foods the fullest. Silom Road is the central business district of Bangkok, so this is the place where many local people gathered and when needed they take foods. This Silom Road is also the place where you can find almost every Thai food in cheap price. The street foods in Banglamphu area are different. The foods around the Khao San are really great. Some of the foods still try to nurture my aspiration of taste buds. The signature soup Tom Saap is so delicious that it would make you taste again and again. I would suggest you to taste Panang curry and Gai Pad Pongali at least once. Other than the safari and magnificent beauty of Pataya, Bangkok street foods are also another reason why I would want to visit Thailand again.
