One of the most iconic Bangkok street food dishes is som tam – shredded green papaya mixed with tomatoes, peanuts, dried shrimp and bathed in a fresh dressing of fish sauce, lime juice, sugar and lots of Thai chillies!
The combination of seafood, needle mushrooms, sweet onions and ripe bursting tomatoes is always a good idea! This is one of the most brightly colorful Thai food pictures on the list!
If there’s one Thai food that really represents that necessary culinary comfort of Thailand, it’s a Thai egg and pork stuffed omelet. Cooked in lots and lots of oil, served over a bed of hot steamed rice and topped with tomato sauce (sauce prik), you just can’t go wrong!
The coconut is a very special fruit that is used as the secret ingredient in all kinds of Thai curries (and in Sri Lankan food too).

Infused with Indian flavored spices like turmeric and jeera, khao mok gai is the Thai version of chicken rice biryani. When you get a good plate, the rice should melt in your mouth and the chicken should slide right off the bone with ultimate tenderness!
Sometimes it’s just simple combinations of ingredients cooked with precision that are the most tasty. Cabbage stir fried with minced pork and smothered in an egg is one of those simple and killer combinations!
Another version of the wildly popular Thai stir fried holy basil dish includes julienned bamboo shoots, adding a lovely twist to the strictly meat variation!
One of my all-time favorite Thai dishes is Kua Kling, a scrumptious Thai dry curry.
Imagine a soupy curry that is dehydrated, yet all the flavor and spice remains and fills up in the meat like a sponge. A few fragrant slices of kaffir lime leaves add to the amazingness!
It’s safe to say that pork lovers won’t be disappointed with nam tok moo.
There’s really not much to dislike about sliced tender juicy cuts of pork combined with onions, chilies and toasted rice flakes all dressed in the tongue pleasing combo of fish sauce and lime juice.
I’m not normally a huge fan of the ever famous fried noodle dish of Pad Thai – unless it contains giant meaty prawns, like the one above! Then it can be pretty good!
If grilled skewers of succulent pork marinated in coconut milk and turmeric isn’t enough to make your mouth water with lust, the glorious peanut sauce will surely do the trick.

Pad prik gaeng is one of my favorite go-to dishes when I just need something quick and tasty. Chicken stir fried with string beans in chili paste over rice never fails to deliver the flavor!
Order this at any general Thai food restaurant or street food stall.
Tender juicy lip-licking pork ribs stir fried in roasted chili sauce and basil is hard to trump. There are very few single mouthfuls that are as pleasing as this! This is one of those Thai food pictures my mouth can already taste, just from looking at it!
It’s the fried egg and its yellow yolk that oozes all over the rice that really makes pad gra pao awesome. This simple Thai dish over rice leaves bellies throughout Thailand happy and satisfied.
