Commerce to make Thailand “Paradise of Street Food”

BANGKOK: -- The Ministry of Commerce plans to make Thailand as a "Paradise of Street Food" after the country was named for having the best street food in the world for the second consecutive year this year.

 

Commerce Minister Apiradi Tantraporn said the promotion of quality and clean street food would be done through its current “Noo Nich” project which emphasised on “delicious food, good quality, clean and cheap price.”

 

The project is now implemented in Bangkok and is expanding to the provinces, she said.

 

The project is to recommend eateries offering good-quality and clean food at reasonable prices, so local people and travelers can have more restaurant options when they come to Thailand, she said.

 

In addition, the ministry has collaborated with the Office of SMEs Promotion to provide loans for people who want to start a “food truck” business so as to promote quality, clean and cheap price street food in the capital.

The street food can taste great, generally, but you can't live on it. Most is made with overused oils and lashings of flavourings/spices. Good taste, no doubt, but very bad for the guts. Hospitals overflow with people with stomach issues.

last month i went for a short holiday at Happy Sea Rayong, the prices of street food was so cheap compared to the prices of street food in BKK.

Had "Chao Kway" grass jelly desserts for 15 THB a bowl. when the bill came my friends and I were all surprised! we actually check if the bill was correct cos it was too cheap. 

While I understand the need for health and cleanliness, cheap and good food is always the best attraction.

Even some HISOs I know still love Khao Niao Moo Ping and hanging out at the local SomTam n JimJoom roadside stall. 

Come to ABAC BangNa where I lived and you see the rich Uni kids in the BMWs and Mercedes queuing up to buy BBQ Chicken on sticks across the 7-11 in a rundown Shack.

Except, Thailand was not named for having the best street food in the world for the second consecutive year this year.

Thailand the hub of mixed signals, mixed messages and unnecessary drama.
