Thai fried chicken for $2 and meat on a stick for 50 cents? Sign me up!


it is good that you stuck with the locals rather than the touristy areas!

Eat. Travel. Eat!

This is a great post! I always like the abundant amount of open air store booths when I travel. The pad thai looks so much different than what I have seen- like what I think is authentic, the noodles are brown instead of orange, but the eggs look so large in comparison to everything else! Still looks good to me. How did you mix everything together with such little space left in the box?


Hi Carol - How about a bag of fried chicken skin for fifty cents??? ;o)

Hi Kat - It usually works out better for us that way.

Hi ETE - Most of the Pad Thai we saw looked like this. We somehow managed to get everything mixed well....we just went slow.


That 2nd to last shot with all the bowls of stuff is so cool! Sigh, my traveling companion Mr. K gets grossed out when he sees stuff unrefrigerated and out in the air that we don't eat much on the streets. At least I can get vicarious thrills reading your posts...


Hi FH - You need to be reasonably careful......but everyone calibrates the term "reasonably" different. I think if you use common sense you'll usually be ok. Most of the food here was hot, so I thought it pretty safe.


That looks kinda like how I make my Pad Thai, though mine has less grease because I don't use as much oil.

The eggs look right though! =P

I'll have to try cucumbers as a garnish..never thought of that before!


dang, I kept thinking about your description of the kanom krok and hours later here I am back to drool over that picture... lol!


Hey MrM - I'm thinking you need to open up MrM's Pad Thai! ;o)

Hi FH - This was the best Kanom Krok we had during our trip!
