Lovely, spicy Thai food proves to the world that ANYTHING tastes good when cooked in coconut and lemongrass. Even ants.
From swanky curries served on fragrant rice and accompanied by a beach-side cocktail or two on Koh Samui to no-nonsense pad thai served up streetside in a styrofoam container at rush hour in Bangkok, Thai food is delicious no matter your budget.
Have a banana pancake for breakfast, a pad thai for an on-the-go lunch and sit down to share an artist's palate of curries--red, yellow, green--for dinner.
Need a snack in between?
No problem, Thailand's roaming fruit-sellers will sort you out with a bag of tart and sweet purple-skinned mangosteens, neon-green guavas or soft and succulent custard apples.
If this doesn't seem like your Thai restaurant back home it shouldn't surprise you. Thai food varies according to region. Keep traveling, keep tasting and see if you can find something you recognize!
