Not just in Thailand but all around the world and specifically in Australia, Thai food is adored. It’s adored because it’s inexpensive and because it packs some of the boldest and most vibrant flavours there are. Rest assured, no exceptions are made at Issan Thai Street Food in Melbourne’s Footscray, where every dish from the soups to the starters to the curries is inspired by the streets of Bangkok and beyond. The menu here on Droop Street is varied and some street delicacies not to be missed include the som tum, a Thai green papaya salad with fish sauce and palm sugar, as well as the moo nark tok, sliced grilled pork with Thai herbs, chilli and toasted ground rice. Superb.
