Top Six Street Foods to Try on Family Holidays in Thailand

Pad Krapao Moo: This stir-fried pork dish is a popular street food you’ll find in most cities during Thailand family tours. Most often, either pork or chicken is the main ingredient and is fried alongside holy basil. The spicy sauce consists of chilli, garlic, green beans, oyster sauce and soy sauce – a delicious combination that really brings the dish alive. Pad krapao moo is usually served with fragrant Thai rice and topped with a fried egg. If its comfort food that gets you excited, then this is definitely the dish to try.

Pad Thai: No doubt you’ll have heard of Pad Thai as this is one of the most popular and traditional dishes of Thailand, as well as being one of the most colourful. It can be rustled up with chicken, pork or shrimp and is traditionally accompanied by flat rice noodles, bean sprouts and lime, for that extra zing. Pad Thai became popular in Bangkok when the prime minister wanted to overcome the country’s rice shortage. The vibrant combination of sweet, sour and spice create the most intense flavour sensation that makes it one of the best dishes in Thailand.

Khao Ka Moo: Another great comfort food that is popular with both locals and visitors to Thailand, Khao ka moo is one of those street food dishes that leaves you with a warm feeling of contentment. Pork is braised on the bone until it falls apart and becomes a melt-in-the-mouth consistency before serving with a portion of rice, chillies, pickled greens and a hard-boiled egg. You’ll find the dish being made throughout the streets of Thailand and because of its lack of hot spice, it’s a popular food among children.

Kai Jeow: Although the word ‘omelette’ derives from France, you might be surprised to learn that its origins are from ancient Persia. Deep fried in lashings of oil, salt, soy sauce and fish sauce, this Thai favourite is an indulgent eggy treat served at many food stalls and restaurants. Most locals simply enjoy the Kai jeow with just a dollop of sweet ketchup or chilli sauce and it makes a great snack for eating on the move.

Roti Gluay: For anyone with a sweet tooth, Roti gluay – a Thai variation on fried banana pancakes – is an indulgent treat that children go crazy for. And not only does it taste sensational, but it looks pretty incredible too. This delicious dessert is a must-try when visiting the capital city of Bangkok and is also great fun to watch being made. The ingredients combine a bread-like pastry, whisked eggs and generous slices of banana which can be topped off with anything from chocolate sauce and coconut to sugar or honey.

Khao Neow Mamuang: Mango sticky rice is another Thai street food that promises to make you salivate. The combination of coconut sticky rice and mango is simple yet delicious and will undoubtedly leave you wanting more. The rice is steamed and then blended with thick coconut cream and sugar before serving with sweet, ripe mango and topped with coconut cream or mung beans.

This review is based on being specifically ‘Designed for children aged 9-12’.

In summary, in our opinion, it is not.

It is simply the (excellent) adult trip with a few omissions and permitting children.

To give my review some context:

Our children are in the age bracket for whom this trip is designed.
I’ve been travelling with Exodus since 2006 and this was my seventh trip with one of those being the adult version of this trip.
Last year we travelled all over Vietnam on a family holiday with Intrepid.

All of these trips I’ve mentioned were outstanding experiences and no matter the price, excellent value for money. I continue to recommend those trips and Exodus at every opportunity to both the uninitiated and the many repeat trippers looking for something they haven’t yet tried.

But unfortunately this was the first where I felt my expectations weren’t met and I felt rather disappointed.

I would endorse the views expressed by previous reviewers Jon Browning and Stephen Dossett and encourage you to read them.
