Dim sum in Thailand? Why not!

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads

Back in May of last year, I posted about the 10 Thai foods that will make your mouth water. I’m back in Thailand now after a fall in Morocco and Turkey and I realize I’ve left one thing out: the dim sum, steamed deliciousness that one normally associates with China.

With all the wonderful street eats on offer, I’ve noticed a proliferation of huge steaming drums in all the night markets, from thick bbq pork buns to tiny wontons to steamed crab, still in the shell. For 40 cents a pop (80 for two) it’s hard to turn down and I obviously had to try them all before sharing them here ;)

 
And the closeups:

Steamed shrimp & veggie shumai:

And of course, mochi for dessert, stuffed with thick red bean paste:

It’s a reminder to me that while the traditionally Thai dishes are delicious, I’d be remiss not to try some of the other food on offer, from Chinese-style crispy pork to these glorious dim sum treats.

Where to get it: Sunday night walking street, Chiang Mai, inside the courtyard of Wat Sum Pow.
