HCMC - The Royal Thai Consulate General in HCMC launched the "Zap'Ver Thai Street Food" program on Tuesday, September 11 with an aim to promote the popularity of Thai street food to a large number of Vietnamese people and foreigners.

Attending the event, participants had the opportunity to enjoy famous street food and drinks of Thailand from 10 Thai restaurants operational in Vietnam and especially enjoy unique street style performances. Thai street food with the complexity of flavors and taste along with traditional culture from different regions of Thailand brought participants unforgettable experiences.

In addition, on this occasion, the Consulate General introduced the Street Food app by Thailand Foundation for the first time ever.

The app provides information of more than 120 local restaurants, food stalls in Thailand with over 25 dishes which are easily available, delicious, and locally famous.

The app is linked with map, which will give clear directions and distances from the users’ location to the desired destination. Addresses of shops and stalls are available in Thai for the users’ convenience if they choose to travel by taxis or other means of public transport.

In recent years, there have been many Thai restaurants whose owners are also Thais operating in Vietnam such as Thai House, Thai Street, May Thai Dining, SamYan, Kin Kin and so on. This proves that Thai food is becoming more and more popular among Vietnamese people and foreigners living in Vietnam.

In the past, the Royal Thai Consulate General in HCMC had organized many events to introduce Thai cuisine, especially Thai street food, to Vietnamese people such as “Amazing Thai Taste: Thai Food Festival” at the Royal Hotel Hoi An M Gallery by Sofitel, “Thai Licious” at Le Meridien Saigon Hotel, “Thai Cuisine Week” at the Park Royal, and “Thai Cooking Class” at the Royal Thai Consulate General.
