This dish with a curious name is a real Thai delicatessen that can be tasted everywhere in the streets of Bangkok.
How to try eating dancing shrimp in Bangkok
You might have already guessed why this salad has such a telltale name. The shrimp are put into a metal bowl, mixed up with spices and herbs and served, slightly salted, a bit crunchy and just a tad… alive.

That’s right, the semitransparent crustaceans are still alive when they are sent to their last dance in the salad! That’s the real Thai delicatessen for you, to be tasted in almost any street food outlet in the city.
