In our company travelling with us are friends with love for good food visiting Thailand for the first time. Their very first Thai meal was at our home, followed by many more dinners enjoying wide range of flavors of southeast Asian dishes. Between drinks and meals we shared a lot about Thailand`s culture, food, sights and places.

However even the best pictures, writings or talks will never be as a firsthand encounter being submerged in natural  habitat. Curious and excited they have taken a leap by joining us not taking the beaten track but following our trails along hawker stalls. ★Big Smile★ Sit with Thai, do as Thai and eat as Thai.

First food trail dish, popular hawker stall street food selling Thai Noodle soup ‘Guay Tiew Gai’ big bowl with flat-rice stick noodle in chicken broth with fragrant fresh herbs. Always accompanied with Thai traditional seasoning’s of fresh chillies in vinegar, sugar, fish sauce, dried chilli flakes, adding to your liking. As soon as I am back from travelling I will add my recipe to this post as it is a dish on our family favourite comfort food list.

Just stumbled upon Mark Wiens 100 Thai soups and dishes blog post featuring beautiful food images including a description with phonetic dish names and in Thai script (which is perfect, the danger of phonetic translations it isn’t always correct or clearly pronounced). Going through his list made me very happy seeing listings of my favorites dishes too, if far and away than looking will bring back fond memories of places and eateries. Even better it makes me plan to make a few dishes Mark has so perfectly delectable captured with his camera’s eye and love for food.
