My top six Thai breakfast dishes that you should not miss – Part 1/2 อาหารเช้าแบบไทยที่ไม่ควรพลาดชิม
Breakfast is the most important dish of the day, it gives us energy, refreshment and even inspiration to gets us through each day. From my personal experience growing up in Thailand, we did not really go to the café or coffee shop for breakfast. My parents usually took us to a morning market which had plenty of food vendors where we would pick and choose what we would like to eat. During weekdays we would “grab and go” early in the morning on the way to work or school to beat Bangkok traffic. Over the weekends, we would eat a meal together at home.
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
