Nowhere gets a foodie’s pulse racing like Bangkok; the Thai capital dazzles with its vibrant cuisine. The product of Chinese, Muslim, Central Thai regional and royal influences, the city’s frenzied kitchens have spawned distinctive dishes. Pad Thai, tom yum goong, mee grob, kao mok gai, and satay—these are just the tip of the veritable iceberg. Beside these, there are oodles of noodle dishes, tons of different curries, endless ways with seafood and compelling sweets, street food snacks, braises, salads, barbecues, soups, and stir fries. Fragrant, spicy, sweet, and salty; the flavors are a revelation. To make sense of them you need a culinary companion. Bangkok In 12 Dishes is structured around iconic dishes you should try at least once while in town. Miang, ob woon sen, hoy tod, mango sticky rice, and kao ha moo, for starters. Our guide also dives deep into Bangkok’s myriad desserts and curries, brings you to the city’s best food markets, IDs sensational tropical fruits, takes an overnighter to Ayutthaya, offers food survival hacks for Chatuchak Market, lists all the best bars, and follows a food trail around the city’s scenic waterways.
