What A Typical Breakfast Looks Like In Thailand

It's safe to assume most people would love it in Thailand since the country is known as "The Land of Smiles" due to the locals' famous hospitality and warm greetings, per Travel Drafts. There's much more to discover in Thailand however, such as a list of things that Thailand is renowned for. In fact, Buddhists will be delighted to hear that there are more than 41,000 temples scattered across the country. But those who like to indulge in life on the beach can travel to one of Thailand's 1,000 islands and swim or snorkel in clear waters. 

When you've had enough, you can take a seat on a three-wheeled Tuk Tuk vehicle and grab a ride to Thailand's busy streets for a quick bite. Asia Highlights reports that Thailand is especially praised for its street food and dishes, such as pad Thai, a spicy papaya salad called som tam, or the shrimp soup that's locally known as tom yum goong. But what do the Thai people eat for breakfast, and does it even exist in Thailand? Actually, breakfast might include the best Thai food you probably haven't tried yet.

A typical Thai breakfast includes Thai omelets, skewered grilled meat, and more

There are no set rules regarding breakfast meals in Thailand because most dishes are eaten throughout the day, according to The Culture Trip. However, some meals are more likely to be served in the morning than in the evening. A simple combination of a deep-fried and fluffy Thai omelet or khai jeow and steamed rice is a popular breakfast option, especially when paired with a sweet chili sauce. You can also grab a quick bite of skewered grilled meat, such as pork, chicken, and fish balls, at street food stands. 

If the meat is a bit too dry or too hearty for breakfast, you can always go for khao tom, a classic Thai rice soup with fresh herbs and pieces of meat, like chicken or pork. And just like in China, you can enjoy the tasty dim sum dumplings in Thailand as well. They're often filled with tofu, mushrooms, chicken, or shrimp. 

And last but not least, Taste of Thailand revealed even more breakfast dishes, such as jok, a traditional rice porridge with a variety of additions, such as meat, eggs, or sauces. Another dish, known as Khao Neow Moo Ping, consists of sticky rice and grilled pork on wooden skewers — it's just as tasty as it sounds. In the end, regardless of the dish you choose, it's undeniable that anyone will find a delicious breakfast meal in Thailand.
