Don't-Miss Dishes in Bangkok

Don't-Miss Dishes in Bangkok

As the capital of Thailand, Bangkok offers ample opportunities to try out dishes from across the country. From classic pad thai to Thai–Chinese dumplings, here are some of Bangkok's most beloved dishes. 

Pad Thai

Thailand’s best-known culinary export, pad thai, also happens to be a popular street-food item. This stir-fried dish is made from flat noodles fried up with vegetables, eggs, and meat or tofu and garnished with peanuts and sprouts. It’s easy to find all over the city, but the most famous place to get it is Thipsamai, just east of the Grand Palace.

Fresh Fruit and Fruit Juice

There’s no shortage of fruit in tropical Thailand, and freshly squeezed juice and precut fruit make for popular roadside treats. Favorite beverages include saccharine tangerine juice and even pomegranate juice; just be aware that vendors often add a lot of sugar. Fruits worth trying include mangosteen, jackfruit (it’s sweet and fruity when ripe), and durian, a stinky, divisive fruit that’s common across Southeast Asia; most people either love it or detest it.

Mango Sticky Rice

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’ll love mango sticky rice, a popular dessert found in restaurants and at roadside stalls alike. It’s exactly as it sounds—a portion of mango served with a ball of sticky rice—but it’s the sweet coconut milk poured over the dish right before it’s eaten that seals the deal.

Thai Chinese Food

Every country has its own unique spin on Chinese food, and Thailand is no different. Chinese dumplings and seafood noodle dishes are particularly popular, and the Yaowarat neighborhood (Bangkok’s Chinatown) is one of the best places to try out Chinese dishes adjusted to Thai palates. 

Tom Yum Goong

Another mainstay of Thai restaurants around the world, tom yum is a hot-and-sour, lemongrass-dominant soup that usually contains some sort of meat and/or vegetables. The most popular version in Thailand is tom yum goong, the shrimp variety.
