Bangkok - Cuisine
The food in Thailand rarely needs much of an introduction, it has made a name for itself all around the globe and when talking of gourmet food Thai elements are quite often involved. Most people have a general idea of what Thai food is and generally people love it.
To give a little taste of what Thai food is I believe words like spicy, well-balanced, surprising, and extremely tasty are quite good words.
A lot of the Thai food Is quick to prepare, but the cooking demands precision and experience to be successful. Eating in Bangkok is one of the highlights when visiting the city!
The restaurants in Bangkok are uncountable so it’s impossible to make a short list of the best places. But for the sake of it we will offer you a small selection of some random, nice places to eat in Bangkok.

Fancy restaurants in all honour, but it’s on the streets of Bangkok where the best food-experiences are to be found. Buying food from food stalls is cheap and often a fantastic culinary experience. It’s stimulation for all senses.
