I think my favorite part of traveling is eating. I love food!
This is larb, which is ground meat with spices. It’s eaten by scooping the meat up with the lettuce.
I have always loved Thai food, so getting to eat food all around Thailand was amazing!
This is Tom Ka Gai, which is a coconut soup with chicken and spices.
When I was young, I worked at Thai restaurant in Phoenix and I always used to have a nice, spicy bowl of Tom Ka Gai when I was sick.
It’s like my version of chicken noodle soup.
This may be one of my favorite things in the world.
This dessert is made by cooking rice in coconut milk and sugar, and then topping it with mango.
In English, it is called sticky rice and mango, and it’s awesome!
Most people think of Pho as Vietnamese, but in all of Southeast Asia, it is popular.
I stopped in a little stall while I was out looking at temples, and I was so impressed.
It was just noodles and chicken with some broth, but it was perfect.
Of course I ate Pad Thai too!
I know Pad Thai is what most people think of when they think of Thai food, and that is because it’s amazing.
It’s just a simple noodle dish, but it’s the sauce that makes it great! Sweet and spicy at the same time.
I ate a lot of less attractive-looking Pad Thais from street vendors, and those were good too. But it was hard to get a picture while holing the paper cone they put it in, so you get a picture of the one I had at a restaurant.
Meat and rice is simple, but delicious. This was at a little stand by my hotel.
I know I should be more excited to tell you about the many temples and hikes, but food is really one of my favorite things.
