Tapioca Dumplings : Sakoo Sai Moo

I am unsure how many times I have shared Thai street food recipes with you, but I am sure I haven’t yet shared this popular savoury appetizer named ‘Sakoo Sai Moo’.

Sakoo Sai Moo is a steamed tapioca ball filled with seasoned minced pork, sweet pickled radish and peanuts. It is served with green lettuce, coriander, fresh chilli and topped with fried garlic. The dish is a popular snack in Thailand and found at street stalls and in markets.

Traditionally this dish is made with sago starch (hence the name sakoo, which is Thai for sago), but these days tapioca is more commonly used as a substitute. 

The dish is a perfect food for a family gathering. Everyone can help prepare it or it can make ahead of time, which makes this dish ideal for serving at a party.

BBQ Pork (Moo Phing)

Among the good things about living in Thailand is finding food on almost any street corner at any time of the day or night. The food is not only delicious, it is also plentiful and cheap.
I think we are spoilt in having such easy access to Thai food in Thailand, but living abroad does not stop me from having delicious street food. Here is one of my favorite street food dishes that I want to share with you this time.
The dish is grilled pork skewers with sticky rice (ข้าวเหนียวหมูปิ้ง), and it is one of my all time favourites.
I make this dish quite often at home, but I have to be hornest – I still can’t get it to taste as good as the grilled pork sold in Thailand!

Sen mee Pad See ew


Hi everyone and welcome back. In my last post I mentioned that sen mee (thin rice vermicelli noodle) can be used in a soup, as a stir fry, and in salad. This time I will show you how to use sen mee to create the famous Thai stir fried noodles dish, Pad see ew.
According to Wikipedia pad see ew, sometime spelt Phat si-io, is a Chinese-influenced stir fried noodle dish that is commonly eaten in Thailand and is also popular in Thai restaurants around the world.
The name of the dish translates to “fried (with) soy sauce” and it is very similar to the char kway teow of Singapore and Malaysia.

Khao Keang Dishes : Pad Prik Khing

My favourite lunch time food when I was in Bangkok was “Khaokaeng” or “khao rat kaeng”, meaning “curry-on-rice”. This is a traditional type of ready-made fast food in Thailand. The popularity of the places in Bangkok that sell these foods as a quick lunchtime meal is in decline.
