1. Rice and noodles. There are endless noodle and rice dishes in Thailand, pad Thai being the most famous, so if you love these foods you’ll be a happy traveler. I ate A LOT of rice and noodles, even for breakfast – amazing!
2. Massaman curry. Curry dishes in Thailand are as varied as rice and noodles. One that I absolutely fell in love with was massaman curry, which is mainly made up of meat and potatoes. It came to be a real comfort food for me while I was travelling.
3. Colourful curries. I had heard of Thai red and green curry before I traveled to Thailand, but I hadn’t heard of Thai yellow curry, and I even found a pink curry in a bar in Chiang Kong!
4. Soups. Again, there’s a great variety of soups in Thailand and I lived on noodle soups while I was there. They make a great light lunch and are so tasty and refreshing. I also found them to be a great comfort food, like the massaman curry above. My favourites usually included chicken and greens.
5. Spring rolls. I’m sure you’ve all heard of these, but they are such a classic and so delicious. They make a great snack or light lunch, but I usually had them as a side with a another dish because I’m greedy and they’re just too good to resist!
