Top 6 Solo Eats You Can Order on foodpanda in Thailand

Ordering for one? From street favourites such as brothy boat noodles, to restaurant-quality pad kra pao, a spicy basil mince meat dish on rice - order them all on foodpanda

From street favourites such as brothy boat noodles, to restaurant-quality pad kra pao, a spicy basil mince meat dish on rice - what will you order in Thailand? Whatever dish you choose, get them all on foodpanda.

1. Boat Noodles: Warm Beefy Noodle Soup 

Rich beef broth made with a tangle of herbs, spices and aromatics, with a splash of fresh cow’s blood, Boat Noodles, or Kuaitiao Ruea to the locals, is known to be one of the most flavourful noodle soups in Thailand. It can be traced back to the 12th century where Boat Noodles were prepared on canoes by vendors floating along the intricate waterways of the ancient city of Ayutthaya (now Central Thailand), and devoured only on the bank of the canals. Fortunately, you no longer have to have your Boat Noodle fix at that one place, simply find your favourite eatery on foodpanda and have it with chewy rice noodles, beef balls and marinated pork right at home.

2. Bubble Tea

Know how much Thai people love bubble tea? They love it a lot - so much so that it is estimated that Thai people drink six cups per month on average, making it a 2.5 billion baht enterprise. There are over 30 bubble tea brands, both local and international in the market! Now with so many shops, endless variety of bubble teas to choose from and, most likely, a queue to get your craving satisfied, isn’t it great that you can get your favourite bubble tea flavours on foodpanda - all at the tap of your finger? Choose from the popular creamy Thai milk bubble tea, or the refreshing chinese flower bubble teas. Which would you choose? 

3. Pad Kra Pao: Spicy Basil Minced Meat with Warm Rice

Quite literally a “pow” to your taste buds, the Pad Kra Pao is an incredibly fresh and savoury dish made predominantly of minced chicken, holy basil, sauces and Thai chilies served atop a hot heap of jasmine white rice. In Thailand, this famous plate of meat and rice is considered “fast food”, equivalent to that of a sandwich or a burger, and is thus widely eaten for lunch. Besides being incredibly satisfying, this dish is in our top 6 because it is made for delivery: it is easy to pack into a container and, if you have any leftovers, great for keeping in the refrigerator and heating up in the microwave the next day. Order some on foodpanda!

4. Coffee

Coffee is ingrained in the lives of Thai people: Oliang, a special concoction where the coffee is first made by roasting espresso beans in a pan over charcoal fire with corn kernels, tamarind seeds, sugar and butter, then brewed in water and served in ice with condensed milk, is almost always served together with breakfast. In recent years, Thai coffee plantations have grown in popularity, with their beans used in many local cafes and restaurants. If you fancy a cafe-roasted cold brew, or any other trendy bittersweet coffee concoction instead, foodpanda has it all too. 

5. Yentafo: Thai-Style Fermented Tofu Meat Soup

The equivalent to Yong Tau Foo, a dish from Hakka Chinese cuisine that is mostly made up of tofu filled with ground meat mixture or fish paste, Thailand’s Yentafo is a popular local noodle soup that features a delightfully bright pink broth. This unusual colour highlights the differentiator: the pork bone stock base is mixed with unique fermented bean paste, a dash of food colouring and some chicken blood. Getting your healthy hit of Yentafo in the comforts of your own home is now an uncomplicated affair: select your favourite restaurant on foodpanda, opt for the noodle of your liking and the ingredients to go with it.

6. Chicken Rice

Thailand’s answer to Hainanese Chicken Rice, Khao Mun Gai is possibly one of the most popular Thai dishes in the country because it is impossible to walk more than a few blocks without bumping into a chicken rice cart or restaurant. It is easy to see why: it is an incredibly holistic meal of protein (chicken), carbohydrates (rice), vegetables (cucumber) and a clear savoury broth made from simmering the chicken. And let’s not forget the most important element, the tangy and spicy chilli sauce. This is a dish that looks simple but hard to create at home, which is why it is the perfect dish to order on foodpanda when the cravings hit!
