Must-Try Foods in Thailand
The popular country of Thailand in South-East Asia is famous for its friendly locals, the marvellous landscapes and its abundance of good food. Whether you’re a peanut allergic, a vegetarian or a meat lover, Thai cuisine offers tasty dishes for everyone. On your journey through Thailand, you should try both popular street foods and the delicious recipes from the restaurants.
Good to know
Thai food is highly customisable: Almost every dish can be altered, you can ask to add veggies or meats to your liking. If you’re allergic to something, be more careful. Almost all sauces are fish-based (most dishes use either fish sauce, oyster sauce or shrimp paste), and many dishes contain traces of nuts (peanut oil is used for frying, many dishes include cashews or peanuts). Common practice amongst travellers with allergies is preparing a piece clearly stating them in Thai language, which you can show to waiters.
