Mike and I pretty much eat street food every day in Thailand. It’s cheap, it’s where the locals eat, and we haven’t gotten sick from it at all (knock on wood). Meals usually cost around $1 a piece. The main course you’ll see everywhere is noodle soup, most similar to pho. Compared to Chinese noodle soups, there’s less broth and less noodles, but somehow these portions fill us up just fine. We also notice we’re not as hungry when it’s so hot and humid outside.
Best noodle soup goes to Blue Shop on Ratpakinai Rd just south of Ratchadamnoen Rd where I got it with pork spare ribs. Tasted just like my mom’s spare ribs!
