Real Thai Street food (This article written by Thai)

  1. Kow Kra Plao Kai Dao (ข้าวกระเพราไข่ดาว)

Kow = Rice

Kra Plao = Basil

Kai Dao = Fried egg can also be called "Pad Kra Plao" Pad = Fried Kra Plao = Basil

This menu is the most popular menu among Thais. Most of the Thais when we don't know what to eat, we go for Pad Kra Plao. You can choose whatever meat you like; chicken/pork/beef/seafood or sometimes even duck or frog. But the most common one are chicken and pork. You can also choose the level of spiciness; spicy/ little spicy/not spicy. When you also not spicy, make sure they understand you or else you can find not spicy for Thais is super spicy for you. My trick is that just say no chili or 1 chili (chili is countable is Thai)
