Many travelers around the world famously know Krabi as a beach holiday destination. Located in the Southern part of Thailand, it is home to many natural limestone cliffs and hidden caves and lagoons. Most tourists also visit Thailand for their delicious and exotic foods that are usually found on the streets of night markets, which is a common sight. Krabi is home to a famous night market more commonly known as Krabi Walking Streets and these are the few foods that you should not miss when you are there…
1. Mango Sticky Rice
This delectable delight is a popular Thai dessert that is usually served at room temperature, if not hot, especially when sold in the streets. It is made of sticky rice soaked in fresh coconut milk topped with sweet cut mangoes. At less than 100 Baht, you can get this fantastic dessert that is quite filling (due to the rice) so you might want to share them.
2. Crepe Rolls
Comes in bite-size, the crepe rolls found at Krabi Walking Street are filled with a variety of pastes you can choose from. There is custard, coconut, kaya and even taro so be sure to try all of them! The outside layer is made of soft and thin pancake batter, grilled to perfection. The best part is its price – at only 20 Baht for eight rolls, you (and your pocket) will definitely leave the place smiling.
3. Banana Pancake
Cave in to your sweet tooth as you pamper yourself with this sinful delight. Fresh sliced bananas wrapped in dough, pan-fried to perfection and sprinkled with some sugar to bring out the sweetness. As if that isn’t sweet enough, the pancake is topped with chocolate fudge. The seller will cut the pancake into little pieces before it’s good to go!
4. Fried Ice Cream
With weather like Krabi, indulge in some cold sweeties that can easily be found not only in the night market, but also any random street stalls during the day. If you have never tried one before, fried ice cream is basically ice cream wrapped in soft bread. The outside is hot while the inside is cold so be sure you eat them up quickly!
And if you are feeling extra adventurous…
6. Stir-Fried Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle
Despite its off-putting name, this insect dish is actually a delicacy in Thailand. When fried properly, it actually even taste good. The coconut also adds flavor to the whole insect dish, which is full of protein and other nutrients. Eating insects is a definite must-do when you in Thailand! So don’t miss this out!
