Editorial Reviews

With its stunning photography and authentic recipes, this book transported me right back to Thailand. Take your friends and family on a culinary tour of the best Thai Street Food has to offer." -Katie Chin, author of Everyday Thai Cooking "Thai street food is very personal to me since I grew up cooking street food with my mother and pushing a curry cart. This book demystifies and celebrates the intricacies of Thai street food and inspires the reader to get out there and eat!" -Ian Kittichai, chef and owner of Kittichai"The delicious universe of street food in Bangkok is confounding to navigate, and there's no better guide than Chawadee Nualkhair. For twenty years Chow has combed the streets for the smokiest stir-fried noodles, the crispiest fried chicken, and the richest soup noodles. Chow lives to eat on the street; her hilarious blog and this informative book are proof of this, and all you need to eat well in Bangkok." -Jarrett Wrisley, food writer, and owner of Appia and Soul Food Mahanakorn"Street foods have been a mainstay of Thai culture for centuries, and today it is one of the world's hottest culinary trends. This book is the first complete guide to Thailand's street foods, which are one of life's pure pleasures. This is a fabulous collection-evocatively written, beautifully designed and ravishingly illustrated." -Dr. Prasert Prasartthong-Osoth, owner of Bangkok Airways"Chow and I are truly old friends. Her book on Thai street food is complete and very well organized. I particularly enjoy her comments about whether Thai street food will survive or evolve into something different. This book is not only useful for those who want to know where to find the best street food but also to inform them about the types of street food available in Thailand and specifically Bangkok." -Chef McDang, TV food personality" Thailand's Best Street Food is a thoroughly 'user-friendly' guide that is enthusiastically recommended for anyone visiting Thailand for business or for pleasure!" - Midwest Book Review " Thailand's Best Street Food largely succeeds in its attempt to provide a wide-angle view on Thai street food. Long-term visitors to Thailand will enjoy using the book's recommendations to experience the full breadth of Thai food's diverse pickings, as they travel from Phuket in the south to Chiang Mai in the far north. Travelers who want to take a bit of their experience home with them can even try out several recipes printed in the book, each one inspired by a Thai street food stall." -Michael Aquino, "This was a monster, 370-page hardback book. Packed full of great photos and recipes. It was the ideal coffee table book." - IamKohChang blog"
