Food markets and street vendors. To eat or not to eat…..

Posted by on April 21, 2015

Although everyone has told us that food is cheap in Thailand, if you need to eat everything from restaurants & cafe’s & keep on doing this throughout a whole month, you will be spending too much of your budget on food. Anyway, that’s what we are starting to realize. Also, when in Thailand, one would like to eat the way locals eat & at the places locals eat. But what about fears we farangs (¬†http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farang ) have for eating food from the streets? On Sunday, we said “to hell with it” and started munching some of Phuket’s night market foods. A crazy, noisy, sweltering hot, smelly & rather unhygienic looking market, with the strangest, most colorful selection of things we fail to recognize. No matter, we had a bit of this & that and what we thought would be the safest. No stomach issues & way nicer & cheaper than the Western shit that McDonalds & the likes dish up around here anyway. We’ll try & eat more local as we go along & our confidence grows.

Janneke overwhelmed by the choice on offer. No need for cooking when everyone else is trying to sell you whatever is edible (& sometimes less than edible me thinks).

Rows, upon rows of colorful food. Extremely busy with cooks sweating to get their foods out onto the tables as they prepare most things there & then. And vendors smiling & trying to entice everyone to try their wares.
