On the Grill
This picture shows a common sight in Thailand – a street food vendor with a very basic set-up: it can be relatively inexpensive to set up as a vendor. The picture was taken in front of a historical ruin in Ayuthaya.
Sour sausage, in this case, Stuffed Sour Sausage with Sticky Rice (Saigkrawk Naem) is a fairly common street food. It’s a simple recipe – ground pork, cooked rice and salt, mixed, stuffed and left out several days to ferment. The vendor also gives you a bag of condiments to be eaten with each bite of the sausage, typically peanuts, sliced ginger, whole Thai chillies (prik kee noo) – you bite off as much as you want – and often cabbage.
