Hawker Food

For any question you ever had about Thai street food but were afraid to ask...

The book was compiled in the early 90's by a couple of college students. The book has a rundown of all you need to know about Thai Hawker food. From what it is, where it is, and when it is.

Although I didn't use this book during the initial "Snack a Day" project, it has helped learn some new food names, as well as the names of some old favorites. Of course if I don't know what something is, my old rule of thumb is to say "What is that?" Or: "I want that!" It usually works well. Except for yesterday when I was at a shopping mall frequented by tourists. When I ordered a cup of green noodle drink I think the woman thought I was joking.
