Eating food in Thailand has a mixed choice

Eating in Isaan
  • Veg and Chilli Dip (Nam Prik Pak) …
  • Pork Skillet Barbecue (Moo Krata) …
  • Rice Whisky (Lao Khao, ) …
  • Sweet Sticky Rice (Khao Niao Wan, ข้าวเหนียวหวาน) …
  • Steamed Pork (Moo Yor, ยำหมูยอ) …
  • Leaf Wraps (Miang Kham, เมี่ยงคำ) …
  • Steamed Curry Cakes (Hor Mok)
  • Isan food, in which glutinous rice (Thai: ข้าวเหนียว, khao niao) and chilli peppers are prominent, is distinct from central Thai cuisine, though it is now found throughout the kingdom. Sticky rice is a staple of northeastern cuisine and it accompanies most meals.


ant egg salads, street food counters lined with entrails, carts filled with bugs. I fully understand why visitors to Thailand can be put off by Isaan food. As not all of it is appealing and much is the complete opposite. But bravado and beetle munching aside, Isaan food does offer much of the best eating in Thailand, and it is very easy to track down in Bangkok. And while I do spend much of my time in Isaan’s rural rice fields, the Isaan stables are not always so widely available, as village shops and vendors often just specialise in one or two varying Thai dishes. Whereas Bangkok will always have Isaan specific restaurants at near every other corner. Anyway, this is my Top 10 Isaan Food guide sharing the staples of Northeastern Thailand.  Note, Isaan food (or at least salads) will be eaten with sticky rice, and sides of white cabbage (Pak Gad Khao), sweet basil (Horapa), and Long Beans (Tua Fak Yao).


 Minced Pork Salad (Laab Moo, ลาบหมู)

Originating from Laos this fiery minced pork salad is the big favourite in Isaan food. While there are variations the most popular Laab comes as a stir-fried minced pork dish with shallots, coriander and mint leaves. Seasoned with the salty of fish sauce and the sour of lime juice. Note Lab is at times found with raw uncooked meat. I would strongly advise against it.
