Local Midnight Meal "Ba me Kiow"
If you walk around cities in Thailand at 9-10 pm don't be scared that you will be left with hunger! It's very usual that there are street vendors everywhere especially at night! More shockingly a lot of those street vendors are actually franchisees. There's one brand of street vendors that everybody in Thailand recognize, with the combination colour of red and yellow it stands out at night. " Chai See Ba Me Kiow" is probably the most well known Thai franchise within the country and there has to be one in at least every small parts of town! Ba Me Kiow is basically egg noodles with some dumplings and soup, even though eating a bowl of noodles at night might sound too heavy for some but they are actually not that heavy because of the clear soup! Like I have mentioned because it's a franchise branches I can't pinpoint for you where they are exactly but if you are in Thailand you can just ask the locals at night about where you can find a good bowl of Ba Me Kiow ! I personally love this dish and brand because the price is only $1 and they usually open from 7pm onward so after my classes at the university I would eat a bowl before going back to my room and get the studying done!

i know what you mean b/c here in the state's, thai restaurants are not as authentic meaning they cook catering to the westerners taste more b/c they cant handle the spice in the food therefore the dish is americanize....so when i go to my friend's restaurant she cooks my food the way its suppose to be cook verses a westerner in the restaurant. Judging from the pic on the stall, those dishes looks sooo yummy!!
I actually went to the states a long time back and they brought me to a Thai restaurant and yes I had to make sure they know I was Thai and then they made it special taste for me lol : ) or else it would have been a bit watered down :( and these are the best when you are hungry at night you can just stop by to have a quick meal
I might need to go to some street vendors when I'm in Thailand! I understand by the Thai restaurants in the States though. I had some red curry and it wasn't what I expected to be. So, I went on youtube and find a youtube blog that caters to Thai cooking, so I started to cook my own Thai food, the authentic stuff. Maybe one day, I'll have some real Thai food in Thailand!! Nice pics btw! :)
@takebanee82 sometimes people think that the meals they can find outside of thailand should taste similarly to the authenthic thai food but i can guarantee that the food in thailand taste a hundred times better!! you should totally try out the street vendors when you get to Thailand!! and it seems that you have made many thai dishes!~ which ones were your favourite??
I hope to go to Thailand someday and try some good Thai street food!! I haven't made, but a few thai desserts like Mango with sticky rice and fried bananas. Going to try and cook some main dishes soon though! :)
