This time I’m going to talk about my Thailand trip. I went to one interesting place not too far from Bangkok…..call Koh Kret. Koh Kret is a little island in Cho Phraya river
20 km north of Bangkok in Nonthaburi Province, Thailand. How to get to Koh Kret is very easy just take a bus, van or taxi to Pak Kret then take a boat to Koh Kret.
Most of the people in this island have Mon tribes that are still very strict in their traditional and culture. The famous thing in Koh kret is pottery and the traditional loyal Thai desserts. In the past around Rama V visited this island. The royal chef needed people to help in the kitchen, so they trained people on this island how to cook like the royal chef. That’s how the people on Koh Kret know traditional Thai royal culinary and they have past it down generation to generation which still continue it until now.
I have to say I have always loved this place because I can try different Thai foods and desserts not far from my home. So lets get started on my food trip with fried flower this is one of the most famous snacks of Kho Kret. They use all kinds of flower and vegetables that you can eat and dip it in batter and then have it deep fried and served with sweet chili sauce costing around 40 Thai baht(around $1.5) The next vender/restaurant is a coffee shop that mixes between new style decoration and the use of old fashion techniques making Thai tea and Thai coffee. It’s one interesting coffee shop. After that coffee shop I needed to get back to the pier and take a tour boat.
