A free photo guide to help you order Thai Street Food

One of the best things about living in Thailand is the food. It is not only delicious, but it is also plentiful and cheap. In fact, you can find it on almost any street corner at any time of day or night. I guess we are spoilt in Thailand in having such easy access to a large variety of Thai food. But the thing is, tourists don’t always know how to order as the menu is often in Thai. Even expats who have lived here a long time often stick to the same half a dozen dishes. So, to help these people out, I do a Thai Street Food Challenge every year on Facebook and Twitter. The idea is to eat 100 different dishes in one month. My rules are that I can only buy on the street, in markets, and in shop houses with three walls. I cannot buy at air-conditioned restaurants and I cannot eat any dish more expensive than 50 Baht. This website showcases all of the food that I ate during the challenges.
