Thai street food festival
13th to 29th April 2017
The world of Thai street food can be an exciting, if occasionally bewildering, place.
No exploration of Bangkok’s street food is complete without a trip to Chinatown (referred to among locals as Yaowarat), which is considered the birthplace of street food in Thailand and remains a prime foodie destination.Bangkok is one of the world’s best cities for food. It’s not easy to narrow down the list of Bangkok’s best street food streets; Anyone who has spent time navigating the city surely acknowledges that there is without stretch of the imagination, an infinite supply of street food.
Seven of Thailand’s popular dishes appeared on the list of the “World’s 50 Most Delicious Foods (Readers’ Pick)”— a worldwide online poll of 35,000 people by CNN Travel. Thailand had more dishes on the list than any other country. They were: tom yam goong (4th), pad Thai (5th), som tam (6th), massaman curry (10th), green curry (19th), Thai fried rice (24th) and moo nam tok (36th). You’ll find most of these dishes at the Zen Metro menu.
Thai cooking places emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components and a spicy edge. It is known for its complex interplay of at least three and up to four or five fundamental taste senses in each dish or the overall meal: sour, sweet, salty, bitter, and spicy.
Here at Zen, we try our hardest to get you some of those lovely flavours in the sunny Birmingham! We sincerely hope you’ll enjoy the experience!
