Bangkok Food

The Thais are famous for their welcoming smiles and mouth-watering food. Speak of street food, not many countries in the world can offer this much of variety in a single spot. Yes, referring to Bangkok. It was just a short business trip of 4 days, but I am missing authentic Thai food already. This trip, I had the chance of dining on the streets, food courts and the famous restaurant at the shopping malls. Although Tom Yum is a Thai staple, I deliberately avoid it this trip to give way to other Thai specialty. Click on to see my 'report'!
