During a trip to Bangkok, I was all about experiencing local breakfast culture and slurping up as much tom yum noodle soup as possible. One morning, however, I was encouraged to branch out and try the French toast, a Thai interpretation of the Western dish Americans know and love. In the Thai version, white bread is dipped into batter and fried in a wok before getting topped with a drizzle of sweetened condensed milk.
If you don't have a sweet tooth, try the savory version instead. Top a stack of the French toast with a fried egg, some soy sauce and chile oil, and you're set. Either way you go, this Thai French toast is delicious and unlike anything you've ever had.
