I admit that I was a frequent buyer of street food snacks, but among all the available choices there is one snack that I really like called “Kanom Kai Nok Kra Ta” - Charinya Ruecha of @charinyas_kitchen
Coconut milk ice-cream is the most memorable dessert of my childhood. In Lopburi province, I used to chase the ice-cream man, wearing his business attire, whenever I heard his bell ringing from the ice-cream trolley that he pushed along the road. I remember everyone called his mobile shop an “ice-cream wearing suit”, which became his signature. His ice-cream is like soft icy flakes with coconut milk flavouring, topped with corn kernels and Lod Chong. It was a light and refreshing dessert compared to western-style ice-cream that is thick and creamy. Coconut milk ice-cream (Thai: ไอศกรีมกะทิ) is a local dessert that’s great for summer and it’s an all-time favourite for all ages.
I think we are spoilt in having such easy access to Thai food in Thailand, but living abroad does not stop me from having delicious street food. Here is one of my favorite street food dishes that I want to share with you this time - Charinya Ruecha of @charinyas_kitchen
April is a significant month in Thailand, it is not only the hottest month, but it known for its Songkran Festival, Thai New Years. This year will be different for all of us, and there is no exception in Thailand due to Covid-19, with festivals and events being cancelled and with many being urged to stay home.
The positive side of staying at home is you have more time to think about yourself, take care of your health, maintain your physical fitness and eat healthy during this crisis. Today, I would love to introduce you to Miang Kam (Thai: เมี่ยงคำ), a Thai traditional dish which is known among locals for its health benefits and is rich in nutrients to help protect yourself from cold and flu.
Rad na, is a Thai-Chinese noodle dish. It is made with stir-fried noodles and then covered in a sauce made of stock and tapioca starch. The noodles commonly used are thick rice noodles, but again the recipe also works with thin rice noodles - Charinya Ruecha of @charinyas_kitchen
