Try Tom Yam

#28 of 43 things to do in Bangkok
Bangkok is a paradise for gourmets! Here you can enjoy almost any cuisine of the world. Yet, naturally, you should concentrate on traditional local food – they cook it perfectly in any of the many eateries, scattered all over the place.

The problem of choosing the right place for eating out is solved in no time: choose a cafe where mostly locals, not tourists, are hanging out.

Having made up your mind as for the eatery, you will face a new problem: what to order? The ample choice will make you giddy, and unfamiliar names will puzzle you: who knows what they will eventually serve you?

So, your first pick can be one of the most popular dishes, like Tom Yam. This sweet-spicy soup on chicken broth with shrimps or other seafood (sometimes you can find a recipe of Tom Yam with chicken or pork).

For themselves, the Thais cook a super spicy soup, but they would never serve it to tourists. Just in case, tell them «not spicy».

How much?

the average cost of a dish is 150 baht.
