Food is the biggest expense that many Americans must budget for. In the Western world, sticking to healthy meals is tough and expensive.
But in Asia?
Not so much.
This post shows you how to eat cheap in Bangkok, while still enjoying a healthy and well-balanced diet.
If you like food, you’re going to love this article.
Are Cheap Meals Really Healthy?
In America, eating cheap means eating crap.
Reheated chicken nuggets from the frozen food aisle at your local supermarket.
Basically, all the stuff that’s bad for your body.
In Thailand, however, things are different. Inexpensive meals consist of things like:
- Delicious salads.
- Barbecued pork lions.
- Grilled chicken served with sticky rice and vegetables.
These meals all cost less than two dollars, and they’re some of the best tasting food you’ll ever eat. What’s more, each of these dishes is good for you. You’re eating fresh ingredients that are rich in protein.
It’s a far cry from that processed garbage they sell in American supermarkets.
Where To Eat Cheap In Bangkok
(BBQ Pork For $0.30 A Piece)
I’ve mentioned this in previous articles. But I spend very little on food. And that’s in-spite of me being on a special body-building diet.
In fact, my meal costs here are one tenth of what they were in the USA.
If you’re used to spending hundreds of dollars a week on food, you’re in for a pleasant surprise.
Best of all, these cheap eats are available at some pretty nice places. You’ll find them offered by local street vendors and upscale mall food courts.
One of my favorite places to eat is the Terminal 21 Mall. They’ve got a massive selection of tasty meals (with everything from salads to grilled meats), and it’s super affordable. You’re able to order a two-course meal, and drink, for under five dollars.
When you’re looking to eat good without breaking the bank, be sure to check out your local food courts and street vendors.
You’ll find tons of inexpensive meal options that are both healthy and delicious.
