Bangkok Cuisine

Thai cuisine is famous the world over for its fiery flavors and exotic ingredients, and in the capital city of Bangkok, it’s a point of pride. While regional variations exist within Thailand, Bangkok, as the capital, draws from them all, making it a great place to sample a little bit of everything.

One of the best parts about eating in Bangkok is you can fill up on amazing local dishes without blowing your travel budget. The street food here is some of the best in Asia, if not the entire world, and you’ll find stalls cooking up piping hot dishes and treats on nearly every street corner and back alley in the city. Pad Thai, rich curries, spicy green papaya salad and mangos with sticky rice are just a few of the dishes you should try during your time in Bangkok.

If you want to learn about authentic Bangkok cuisine, a beginner-friendly class at the Baipai Thai Cooking School in Bangkok is a good place to start. Each half-day class focuses on traditional Thai techniques, creative uses of local ingredients and presentation, each taught as you prepare four classic Thai dishes.

Thai food has been influenced by surrounding countries in Asia over the centuries, and nowhere more so than in Bangkok. To get a taste of one such influence on the cuisine of Thailand, take a foodie tour of the night markets of Chinatown, where the first Chinese merchants brought their own culinary tradition over with them some 200 years ago.
