BBQ Pork Skewers ( Moo Pingh)หมูปิ้ง


I introduced this famous Thai food in Street vendor food in my kitchen before. If you have been to Thailand I’m very sure you have seen the food vendors beside the street, with the owner grilling pork skewers on the hot charcoal stove with the smoke and smell drifting 100 meters away. This is one of my preferred street foods, and this is how I cook it in my kitchen.

Fried Rice ข้าวผัดแหนม


Fried rice is a dish that is easy to make. Sometimes we call it a fridge cleaning dish as you can include anything that you want to get rid of, such as left over roast meat, ham, prawns, any kind of vegetable etc. Today I made “Kow Pad Nam ข้าวผัดแหนม”, which is a fermented pork fried rice. You can substitute fermented pork with any kind if protein or you can go vegetarian.

Thai Southern style fried chicken ไก่ทอดหาดใหญ่



This very well known dish is called “Kai Tod Hard Yai” ไก่ทอดหาดใหญ่ by Thai people. The chicken is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, and you can taste the marinaded herbs deep inside next to the bone. Very succulent! This dish is often served topped with fried onions. The recipe is shared by my friend “Penny”, who is a real Southern Thai girl. I thanks her for the beautiful and yummy recipe.

Street vendor food in my kitchen

One of the good things about living in Thailand is that we can find food on almost any street corner at any time of the day or night. The food is not only delicious, but it is also plentiful and cheap. I think we are spoilt in having such easy access to Thai food. Living abroad does not stop me from having delicious street food, in fact when I make it at home I can ensure that it is fresh and clean.

I would like to present some of the dishes I have created that you can also find being sold by street vendors in Thailand.

My first dish is grilled pork on a stick with sticky rice.(ข้าวเหนียวหมูปิ้ง) I sometimes used to have this for breakfast, sometimes lunch and sometimes for dinner. It means you can eat it any time of the day:-). To make it, marinade thinly sliced pork overnight. The next day just put it on the stick and grill it. Serve it with sticky rice and hot chilli dipping sauce.

Love it or hate it

There are some kinds of Thai food that are completely adored only by Thai people. Like Australians love Vegemite, you can count on one hand how many non-Australians will share that affection.

I just want to introduce some of the Thai foods that I love to cook for myself, but not for others. I do not post any recipe with this, but feel free to request a menu,

The first dish is called “Kaw Clook Ka Pi” which translates to rice mixed with shrimp paste. Shrimp paste, or as we call it “Ka Pi” in Thai, is a common ingredient used in Southeast Asian and Southern Chinese cuisine. It is made from fermented ground shrimp mixed with salt. In Thailand shrimp paste is an essential ingredient in many types of spicy dips or sauces and in all Thai curry pastes. Shrimp paste has a pungent aroma, which is why it not a favourite for many people.


Kaw Clook Ka Pi has many elements in this dish, namely

Pad Mee



The popular Thai menu that is known around the world is called Pad Thai. Most of you will probably know it, by eating it or maybe even cooking it. Pad Mee is slightly different. The term “Pad” in Thai language means stir-fry. “Mee” is a a very thin, round noodle. Many people including me like to pair this dish with Som Tum (Papaya Salad). I thank you to my friend P’ Soraya who has shared this recipe to me. As she came from Southern Thailand this dish will be called “Pad Mee – southern style”.
