Chive Cakes at Thong Lo Market

Thailand is sometimes described an one big open air food market. Among the delights that you might come across are these chive cakes photographed at a street vendor near Thong Lo, which is what Sukhumvit Soi 55 is called. When you buy them from a vender, he cuts them up with a pair of scissors and tosses them in a plastic bag, along with a black soy dipping sauce and a skewer or two for spearing the bites. The Thai name is Kanom Gooy-chai.

We have more market pictures on the website. For more on the Thong Lo street food scene, see One Soi’s Street Food Scene.

Kasma taught this recipe in Advanced Thai Cooking Class D-3.
