Top 12 Must Eats Thai Street Foods

Some of my friends travel to drink in one’s culture; others want to see places they have never seen before. One of the main reasons why I travel is to eat, particularly on the street. I think street food is where you can have an authentic experience of one’s culture. The best foods that I have ever tasted in Thailand where eaten standing up in the side streets of Bangkok. There’s a Filipino saying which states that “ Mas Madumi, mas masarap” or in English ” If it’s dirtier the more delicious it will be”.  Don’t be afraid of trying something new because  a taste of it, may change your view in life forever.
