As I have mentioned, you can get anything in Bangkok. This is also true for food. Sometimes when you visit a country and find ethnic food not original to that country, they will sometimes make their best attempt to reproduce the food (i.e., in Ireland I had a pasta dish that was essentially spaghetti with tomato ketchup, the only bad meal I had there). I didn’t find very much of this in Bangkok, probably due to the huge expat community. Most of the non-Thai meals I tried were tasty and as expected.
But my favorite meals in Bangkok were the Thai ones. I could eat Pad Thai or Red Curry every day, though I did not while I was there. Self control comes slowly. The ubiquitous dessert is sticky rice with mango, which I now know how to make. All of the drinks in Thailand are very sweet, so tea generally means sweet tea. Thais generally use a fork and big spoon for eating; I saw very few chopsticks.
The Webster Bangkok campus is a suite in the Empire building in the Chong Nonsi neighborhood. The building hosts a market on the second floor with a variety of vendors. So for dinner break during class, it was easiest to go downstairs and grab dumplings or a pork bun. Everything I tried from the market was delicious.
