Street Foods in Chinatown of Bangkok

Chinatown is one my favourite places that I’d like to visit in Bangkok. It gives me a glimpse to the life of local merchants who are selling wholesale and retail items. Chinatown is also a nice place to gorge on tasty and affordable street foods.

Here are some of the street foods in Chinatown:

Grilled seafood are among my favourites and the local sweet delicacies in Chinatown are also a must try. Chinatown also has a lively market where you can buy fresh fruits. The best time to visit would be in the afternoon to avoid the grueling midday heat of Bangkok.

Streetfood in Lebuh Chulia, Penang

Penang is one of the most famous destinations in Malaysia to locals and foreign tourists alike because of it’s rich heritage, old colonial buildings and glorious food.

Here’re some pictures of cheap local food that I found while walking along Lebuh Chulia (Penang’s backpackers district) in Chinatown.

Food trip in Kota Kinabalu

Kota Kinabalu markets fronting the bay is a good place to try some fresh seafood and local delicacies. Choosing a place to eat wouldn’t be that much of a problem since there’s quite a handful small restaurants to choose from. Most of them are offering almost the same cuisine for almost the same cost.

You get to choose as well how a particular food would be cook.

Our first choice was definitely prawns which turned out to be one of our favourite dish. Grilled prawns seem to be the favourite amongst the tourists that we saw that day but we had it cooked with butter and garlic instead.

Here are some pictures of the sumptuous food that we saw that day in Kota Kinabalu market.

Prawns

Seafood

Aside from seafood, tasty grilled chicken wings are also available nearby.

Next time you visit Kota Kinabalu City, don’t forget to drop by this market and try out some tasty seafood dishes.

Vegetable Buffet in Luang Prabang

This would probably be the cheapest buffet (sort of) that I know. But this is not like any buffets that we all know because you don’t get a second serving on your order. But for $1.25 or 10,000kip, you can put everything that you can fit in your plate. For me, it’s already a good deal.

For $1.25, you get to try a variety of local vegetable cuisines like these ones:

There are also a variety of fried rice and noodles that you can choose from. This is indeed a nice offer for those who are travelling on a tight budget.

Drinks are available as well for an additional cost. The only downside of eating in this market is the abundance of mosquitoes so you better put on some mosquito repellent lotion before you head on to Luang Prabang night market.

Be sure to try this vegetable buffet in Luang Prabang when you visit Laos.

Street Foods in Luang Prabang Night Market

Luang Prabang is one of my favourite cities in Asia. I personally think that it’s one of the most beautiful city in Southeast Asia. It’s laidback, picturesque and affordable. I could easily picture myself spending months living while working online in this small city.

One of my favourite things to do when I was here was to visit the night market of Luang Prabang and eat a variety of sumptuous street foods.

Here are some of my favourites:

Fruit Shakes

There’s a lot of choices when it comes to mix fruit shakes in Luang Prabang. My personal favourite is pineapple, banana and mango.

Banana Roti

Banana Roti is one of my favourite snacks in Southeast Asia. But it’s not the only option available, you can also try roti with peanut butter, chocolate or just plain roti with sweet milk.

Baguette

Of all the baguettes that I’ve tried in this trip, the ones in Luang Prabang are my favourite. Chicken, cheese and vegetable is my top pick. There’s a variety of options to choose from. Another popular choice among backpackers is bacon and cheese.

Pastries

Cakes

Sweet mini cakes are also available for those who loves them and as well as locally made pastries.

Lao Coffee

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Lao Coffee although I forgot to try it when I was in Luang Prabang. I always find myself buying fruit shakes whenever I go to the night market.

Boiled Egg

Though I’m not a big fan of balut (boiled duck egg with fertilized embryo or duck fetus), I do like boiled quailed eggs. It reminds me of “tukneneng” which is boiled quail eggs covered with an orange batter and deep fried which I often buy in the streets of Manila.

In case you visit Laos in the near future, don’t miss to try out the street foods in Luang Prabang night market.

Pan Fried Goodies in Beijing

Almost a year ago, while walking on the streets of Beijing, we found this street vendor who was selling what seems to me as pan fried meats and vegetables.

Pan Fried Goodies in Beijing

We noticed a small gathering of people who were ordering a variety of stuff from the vendor and figured that it might be something worth trying.

We waited until we were the only one’s left and ordered mushrooms, leeks (probably), tofu and squid.

He immediately tossed these skewered items in his flat pan built on his cart and poured a little oil.

He sprinkled it with some seasoning and some chilli powder.

We immediately ate everything up and I was simply blown away by how flavourful those were. A simple and affordable snack that tasted really awesome!!!

Next time you visit Beijing, make sure to look for these small carts and try it out for yourself.

Exotic Meats Mixed BBQ in Siem Reap

I was never adventurous when it comes to eating exotic foods. I was a picky eater when I was younger. But now that I’m travelling, I figured that I might opt to try something new once in a while.

Some restaurants offer exotic meats mixed BBQ in Siem Reap alongside with a variety of local cuisine. One of the item in the menu caught my interest and decided to give it a go.

Exotic Meats Mixed BBQ in Siem Reap

A particular restaurant that I frequently go to offer this exotic meats mixed BBQ which consists of frogs, snake, crocodile and some usual meats such as chicken, pork, beef and some seafood including fish and shrimps only for $5.

I find it pretty reasonable for the price and immediately ordered it and specify that they only put in the exotic meats and shrimps. I skipped the usual meats that I’m used to.

After a few minutes of waiting, our ordered arrived and it looked like any ordinary meat that you’ve seen in any BBQ joint.

I had trouble at first figuring which one was the snake and the crocodile but I finally figured it out by looking at the texture of the meat.

Upon first bite, I noticed that the snake was a bit chewy and the crocodile meat was a bit tougher than chicken meat that I was used to.

The frog meat was definitely very tender and the meat just falls off right the bone.

BBQ in Siem Reap

Everything tasted great though I would still prefer the usual kinds like fish and chicken in the future but I was just glad that I tried something new.

If you’re interested to try it out, there’s quite a handful of restaurants that offer this in Pubstreet.

But if you’re not into exotic meats, you can always try Amok or known as Khmer Curry or Cambodian Curry which would probably my favorite dish here in Cambodia.

Almost all restaurants in Siem Reap offer this dish and I highly recommend that you try Amok with Chicken. The curry is not that much overwhelming and it gives a pleasant taste which in my opinion even compliments the taste of chicken. Go and try this Exotic Meats Mixed BBQ in Siem Reap. This is one of the must things to do in Siem Reap so be sure to try it when you visit this beautiful city.
