2. Austin Bush
Austin Bush’s food blog is by all means one of the top Thai street food blogs in Thailand. When he publishes an article, you can be guaranteed that it will be about a street stall that is worth visiting.
His knowledge of Thai food paired with his amazing food photography is a mouthwatering combination – I get a lot of food photo inspiration from reading his blog!
Along with street food reviews, Austin hits the kitchen occasionally and publishes awesome recipes for speciality dishes like kuaytiaw phat puu (noodles stir fried with curry paste and crab).

3. Thai Food Master
Looking for truly authentic Thai recipes?
As the name of his blog suggests, Hanuman is an absolute master when it comes to cooking, taking photos and writing recipes. His aim is to preserve the traditional side of Thai food, the recipes and dishes that are slowly being forgotten in modern Thailand.
Many of the rare dish combinations he covers aren’t even available at restaurants throughout Thailand, but are strictly home style dishes.
You know the common dish of tom yum goong? Hanuman takes it to the next level and demonstrates how to cook a much more complicated (and impressive) tom yam goong thaawt man daawk sa noh (Thai tom yum prawn soup along with fried cakes made from sa noh flowers)!
It’s also worth mentioning that the Thai Food Master is an expert at linguistics and really translates food terms with precision.
