Thai Street Food

Moo Ping (Grilled Thai Pork Skewers)

Moo ping, a common Thai street food snack, consists of pork skewers marinated in a blend of soy sauce, oyster sauce, garlic, and coriander. Grilled over fresh charcoal, the sizzling moo ping is gently brushed using pandan leaves dipped in coconut milk for an additional floral aroma. The perfectly charred pork skewers are often served with a portion of Thai sticky rice to balance the intense flavor and umami of each bite. It’s a common sight to see people holding multiple sticks of freshly grilled moo ping as they quickly walk through the bustling streets of Thailand.

Kai Jeow (Thai-Style Omelet)

Known as the Thai omelet, kai jeow is a simple dish that’s been passed down for generations. While early records show that the Thai royal family enjoyed kai jeow during royal ceremonies and events, the deeply comforting fluffy egg omelet is now a popular street food eaten all over Thailand.

Making the dish starts with whisking fresh eggs with fish sauce, scallions, and shallots. This mixture is then poured onto a scalding hot layer of oil in a wok, which instantly puffs up the omelet and gives kai jeow its signature fluffy texture and golden-brown hue. It’s finished off with cilantro and fresh Thai bird’s eye chilis mixed with fish sauce.

It’s no surprise that this comforting dish, once eaten by the royal family, has rooted itself deeply into Thailand’s street food culture.
