Street Food - A Thai Tradition

Freshly cooked Fish at a street stall at Hanuman Statue
Upon first visiting Thailand, the first thing you notice is the abundance of food. People eat here constantly (how they stay so thin is a mystery for the ages) and for Thais, it is a communal experience.

Jomtien Beach has many great eating establishments  to choose from, not the least are the street vendors that are located in almost every soi (street) in town.

A variety of fresh food is prepared on the street

Although many tourists are wary of eating "on the street", it is generally safe (assuming you don't have a real delicate system). Be sure to ask for it "mai phed", if you don't want it spicy.

Let your Thai experience be complete. Enjoy eating the "Thai way" It's cheap and delicious (arroy!!)
