One of the many pleasures of living abroad is trying out local delicacies and specialties.

As it is often the case in Asia, sampling traditional food is really easy, not expensive and a true experience for the senses.

Walking in the many soi of Bangkok, Thailand for example, you will find dozen of street vendors selling traditional Thai food. If you’re on the go, just grab some meat skewers with a glass of freshly squeezed tropical juice. For lunchtime, just seat at a street table and try out a fried-rice, a pad Thai (a dish of stir-fried rice noodles) or a Tom Yum soup.

In a more traditional restaurant, best is to share various dishes with friends. For drinks, just try the local Singha beer, a healthy fruit cocktail or some fresh coconut water for the younger ones.

As true epicureans we would like to share with you some of the restaurants we heart for both their quality and atmosphere. Of course, we will also welcome your own suggestions.

Bon appétit!
