Sugar Rush: Thai Cruller with Lychee Ice Cream at Pa Tong Go in Bangkok

Sweets Meredith Bethune Post a comment

My first pa tong go, or Thai cruller, experience was a tad disappointing. I gave the treat another chance at a cafe fittingly named Pa Tong Go. This time, the results were crunchy, sweet, and awesome. More

The Best Dishes I Ate in Thailand

Nick Kindelsperger 7 comments

The Pad Thai was startlingly complex in a way that makes the gloopy, sugary versions served back home feel like a crime. I also snacked on pieces of deliriously crispy fried pork belly at a market, ate a bowl of noodles made right before my eyes by a lady on a boat, and had not one, but two excellent Vietnamese meals. See all of my best bites in Thailand. More

Check out the coconut pancakes, pad se ew, rambutan, and more snapshots of the best stuff we ate in Thailand. More

Choconana: The Chocolate Banana Stand at the Weekend Market in Bangkok

That's Nuts Lee Zalben 7 comments

We've been to an Arrested Development-inspired banana stand in Austin, but traveled all the way to Thailand to investigate this one. (Alright, so maybe the trip wasn't solely on banana stand-related business.) Choconana at the weekend market in Bangkok dips frozen bananas in chocolate and peanuts to order. More

Snapshots from Thailand: Street Food in Bangkok

J. Kenji López-Alt 43 comments

Here's a bold statement: Bangkok is the greatest eating city in the world. It's the only place I can think of where you can spend a month just wandering the streets, eating every single thing that tickles your fancy, three meals a day (with snacks in between), and never try the same thing twice. And to top it all off, you can do it all for under $5 a day. More

Spotted in Bangkok at the Weekend Market: ice cream stuffed in a hot dog bun. Yay or nay? Or would it be better on a toasted bun? More

Street Food Profiles: Nong's Khao Man Gai in Portland, Oregon

Erin Zimmer 2 comments

Note: It's time for another edition of Street Food Profiles. This week we scoot to Portland, Oregon, a sidewalk cuisine mecca where this one-item menu finds inspiration from Bangkok vendors. [Photographs: Nong's Khao Man Gai] Name: Nong's Khao Man Gai (pronounced cow-mon-guy) Vendor: Narumol "Nong" Poonsukwattana Location and hours? SW 10th Avenue and Alder Street (map) across the street from Jake's Grill in Portland, Oregon. What do you sell? Khao Man Gai ($6), or poached chicken served on jasmine rice with cucumber slices and cilantro. And don't forget that little tub of sauce—it's made with fresh ginger, garlic, sugar, fermented soy beans, and chile, and meant to be poured all over the meal. The Piset (pee-set), or "special" in Thai,... More

A Thai Pizza Has Bacon and Cheese Stuffed in the Crust

Slice Adam Kuban 13 comments

Bangkok-based journalist Newley Purnell just hipped me to perhaps the most extreme stuffed-crust pizza yet. On his blog, he says: You can get it at The Pizza Company, a Thai chain. I haven’t tried it yet. But I just might have to. One interesting detail: it’s served with cheese sauce on the side. (In case you need even more cheese! Presumably there’s no bacon on the side, since there’s “double bacon” in the crust.) "But I might just have to"? Might? Come on, Mr. Purnell, you have to try it. We'd love to see some actual pictures of this... More

Bangkok Street Food

Ed Levine 3 comments

When I read Joshua Kurlantzik's fine piece on Bangkok street food, I immediately thought of my late friend Johnny Apple, who wrote an equally spirited and passionate story on the same topic a few years ago. One plus of Kuralntzik's piece: He gave props to the terrific Thai food blogger Austin Bush. Johnny Apple, on the other hand, leaned on American writer Robert Halliday for guidance. The times they have changed. But did they write about the same restaurants?... More
