KHON KAEN, THAILAND (ขอนแก่น) – Khon Kaen is a major city in the Isan northeastern region of Thailand. Today we’re going on a crazy spicy street food tour of Khon Kaen where @Joel Bruner and I will be eating at a legendary beef restaurant, followed by insanely spicy green papaya salad, and a comforting bowl of noodles. Let’s get started eating amazing Thai street food.
Prasit Pochana ประสิทธิ์โภชนา (https://goo.gl/maps/a3eqoBSJNdkn7krNA) Total price – 950 THB ($28.73) – The first place we went is Prasit Pochana (ประสิทธิ์โภชนา), a legendary meat, especially Isan beef restaurant. They specialize in dishes like Thai crying tiger beef, and jaew hon, an Isan style hot pot. It’s an amazing restaurant, one of the best in Khon Kaen especially if you love meat.
Som Tam Parinya ส้มตำปริญญา (https://goo.gl/maps/oE7BDi2fpiyHBAUL8) Total price – 380 THB (11.51) – Next up on this Khon Kaen street food tour we headed over to one of Joel’s favorite places to eat Isan / Lao papaya salad, known as the University degree papaya salad – Som Tam Parinya ส้มตำปริญญา. Their pla ra, fermented fish sauce is a true highlight here. And they pounded us up some insanely spicy combinations.
Jay Hong เจ๊หงส์ โจ๊ก จั๊บ ต้มเส้น (https://goo.gl/maps/w6XqZWdkMEW9tMwDA) Price – about 40 THB per bowl ($1.21) – After a crazy amount of chilies for lunch we decided to eat something a little calm and comforting for dinner – noodles.
Thank you for watching this Thai street food tour in Khon Kaen!
