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!

Temples play an important role in everyday life, with people going to the temple to make merit and pray to Buddha for good health, good fortune and increased wealth.There are tens of thousands of Buddhist temples in Thailand. Some of you that have been to Thailand may have visited Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha) or Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn).
Outside of Thailand, there are also Thai temples in many places around the world. In my blog post this time I will take you to a Thai temple in Canberra called “Wat Dhammadharo”.

The dish is khao mok kai. “Khao” is rice, “mok” in this context is “bury” or “place underneath” and the last word is “Kai”, which means chicken.
In summary the name “Khao mok kai” is “chicken buried in rice” which explains the way of cooking this dish.- Charinya
