Street Food In Thailand

We’ve returned, scented with kaffir limes and palm sugar. After the third night of eating out at restaurants, I’d finally had it. We were spending way more money than I had planned and the food wasn’t that great, and I wasn’t getting buzzed from the Barbie sized cocktails. The next day we hailed a cab, had him drive us just to the edge of the town, and instructed him we were hungry…for street food. We sat on a dirt shoulder above the rock lined beach, watching the waves crash among people reaching into the crevasses for crabs and other sea creatures that could be grilled on their moped kitchens, and savored the flavors. Pad thai, griddled quail eggs, omelets in banana boat leaves, waffles shaped like fish, and countless cups of  iced coffee.
