Thai street food – Gao Lao

Gao Lao

Gao Lao is the essence of Thai street food. It’s a Thai soup without noodles. A bit like a cheeseburger with no cheese? Yes maybe. But it’s a tasty and nutritious broth laden with vegetables, spices and the meat or seafood of your choice, the most commonly available with “moo” (Thai for pork) yes ironic I know!

Most sellers will throw in a side of uncooked salad as garnish, typically bean sprouts or Thai Sweet Basil, shown here. Expect to pay 40 TBH (about 90p in 2016 money).
