2. Austin BushAustin Bush Food Blog

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 MasterThai Food Blogs

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 impressivetom 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.

4. Bangkok GluttonBangkok Glutton

As a freelance journalist and the author of Bangkok’s Top 50 Street Food Stalls, the Bangkok Glutton is a fantastic writer.

Her Thai food blog covers entertaining rants and thoughts about Thai food as well as restaurant and street food stall reviews.

From the moment you start reading the articles on Bangkok Glutton, hearing things like “10 in the morning, and I am already stuffed” you’ll immediately notice that the author is extremely passionate about food!

Riya’s kitchen is full of delicious home style recipes that highlight the use of fresh ingredients, are simple to cook, and are very tasty combinations!

Along with Thai food recipes, Riya also covers a range of international recipes and some restaurant reviews in the mix.

If you are looking for quick Thai food recipes that are easy to follow and sure to impress, head on over to Riya’s for some kitchen inspiration! Instead of normal green mango salad, try her recipe for a salmon fillet with green mango.

Leela, the author behind She Simmers, is not only a serious foodie, but she’s also extremely knowledgable when it comes to linguistics, history and philosophy. So along with a huge archive of tasty recipes, She Simmers also includes intriguing  thoughts and lots of mouthwatering photos.

Avril covers a range of Burmese and Thai recipes as well as tips about cooking and other food related topics like visiting local markets. She’s also creative when it comes to putting together dishes like fried rice made with anything in the fridge.

I’ll also take this special opportunity to mention that the author of Chili Lime Garlic is a fellow addict of the gloriously pungent spiky and creamy fruit known as the durian! She has a great durian smoothie recipe.

    Hello Mark,

    Great list. I think Hot Thai Kitchen is an excellent site. Pailin’s site is a series of Thai cooking videos – always interesting, informative, delicious and fun.

    Hello Mark,

    This is a great list. I didn’t know some of them. Thank you!

    My girlfriend and I are currently developing a map of the shops where people can find thaï ingredients around them.
    It’s currently in french but we’ll probably translate it in English as well. Don’t hesitate to have a look at it and to tell us what you think about it.
    We have location in France, Belgium, Luxembourg and UK. You can add new shops by yourself on the map as well.

    Hope you’ll find it useful,

    Thai food is internationally famous. Whether chilli-hot or comparatively bland, harmony is the guiding principle behind each dish. Thai cuisine is essentially a marriage of centuries-old Eastern and Western influences harmoniously combined into something uniquely Thai.
