Thailand is created by a rich, attractive culinary culture and has its own unique characteristics that cannot be found anywhere else. Thai cuisine has a combination of many cultures of neighboring countries such as India, China, Myanmar, Indonesia, etc. However, Thai cuisine is not dissolved or eclipsed by the cuisine of other countries. This family creates its own, unique and attractive features. In this article, BestPrice Travel will discover with you an extremely famous street food of Thailand called Crab Omelette. 

What Makes Crab Omelette Special

The Thai-style soft omelette is called ‘Khai Khonไข่ข้น in Thailand. It simply refers to a dish of soft, oozy scrambled eggs with one to two types of meat, typically seafood, with crab meat and shrimp being the most popular. For those who are familiar with a samrap of Thai meal, you would already be aware that an omelette is typically regarded as a coolant to a typically spicy Thai dish.

The omelette, however, started to progressively change around four or five years ago in a particular area of the Thai street food scene, going from being a basic side dish to the main course, glammed up with chunks and pieces of crab meat.
