Food Tripping at Kwam Riam Floating Market

I blogged about our recent trip to the Kwam Riam Floating market and how much I enjoyed the sights, the cultural presentations, the short boat ride. I talked a little bit about the food, but I decided to post more food photos in this blog. So here are the treats and goodies we saw there… most of them we tried to eat but some are for our eyes only– there was no space in our bellies for so much food!

Spring rolls with sweet and spicy sauce

A variety of sweets

Colored sticky rice– these are somewhat salty, but you need sweetened coconut milk to top it with.  This dessert is also great with ripe mangoes.  I made a blog post about this here.

This is called “khanom beuang.” It’s crepe with all sorts of fillings

Dried fruit goodies, which I love!

Equivalent to our “ampao” in the Philippines– dried and crunchy rice. These are very sweet. In the background are sticky rice stuffed into bamboo tubes, equivalent to our “suman” in the Philippines.

This is called Pla Dook Foo. The above photo is fried ground catfish meat with vegetables. It is so delicious when mixed with peanuts, fresh carrots and some ginger and tomatoes. It is actually a sweet and sour salad. Such a winner!

Just a little tip when you go to places like these, just buy a little bit of everything just to get a taste.  Some of the food might sound so foreign or weird and you’d regret buying lots.  Then after you’ve found something that you really loved, you can always buy as much as you can!

If you are adventurous about food and a certified food tripper like me, this would be such a fun experience.
