Eat your way from north to south: must-try regional Thai cuisine in Bangkok
There’s so much more to Thai cuisine than Pad Thai and Green Curry. The regional cuisines from the north and south of Thailand are vibrant, unique and will definitely tantalise your tastebuds, Let’s start our journey up north at Eats Payao and Gedhawa. Northern Thai cuisine focuses on wholesome, rounded dishes with heavy use of local ingredients. Expect to find comfort food inspired by family recipes such as northern-style pork curry and green chilli dip with pork crackling. Southern food, in contrast, has a more spicy profile and uses a lot of aromatic herbs. Don’t miss dishes such as stir-fried stink beans with shrimp and dried pork curry at Plaagut or Krua Khun Ein.
