Street Food

Thai markets and street food are a bit eclectic … I don’t know what these ladies are cooking, but this is what a street food stall looks like here.

Enjoy 🙂

  1. This is a great photo, Don.

    It reminds me of the way the “Taste of Chicago” festival along Lake Michigan was years ago before it went all “commercial”. The “Taste” looked just like this back when it first started, now it’s food trucks and advertising.

    “Commercial” ruins everything…

    Very Best Regards,

    1. LOL, sometimes, but there is a need for commerce and we’re all involved in it, to some extent or another, everyone needs money … since my blog has grown quite big, I now have a lot more empathy for how the bigger sites behave and the rationale that goes into it …

      I do however see both sides of the equation, so not in disagreement, just looking at both sides of the paradox …

  2. “If I’m an advocate for anything, it’s to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food, it’s a plus for everybody.

    Open your mind, get up off the couch, move.” -Anthony Bourdain

  3. Great shot…just because it reminds me of ‘life on the streets’ that is everywhere (especially in Asia) and the smells, sights and overall feeling of being in the moment is always good.

  4. I remember some fried delights made in Xian by one street vendor. Don’t know what was in them, but were they ever good.

  5. I’ve always been fascinated by the whole concept of a full market with people cooking in stalls, etc. I just don’t see those where I live. Sure, we have farmer’s markets, but that is really more of a food and wares flea market, than anything else.

    1. These guys seem to setup almost anywhere, and the one’s on mopeds travel around and have a “clown horn” to attract people’s attention … the variety of what’s sold is almost endless …

    1. Sometimes … probablem can be asking if one doesn’t speak Thai … “ghin jay” as I understand is vegetarian … better to get my girlfriend to ask, safer !

    1. I knew someone would ask that … don’t tend to eat off of them, I’m semi-vegetarian … if my girlfriend’s with me I might risk it, but she wasn’t … and generally pretty good in answer to your original question 😀
