Kanchanaburi market is the place to go for great hoi tod. There, you will find many variations of this popular street food dish. Some vendors prefer to cook the mussels like a stir-fry, while others bathe them in an egg and starch mixture, cooking them into a crisp pancake. Whatever the preference, hoi tod remains a popular snack and supper dish, and is typically enjoyed with beer. This dish is best prepared a la minute and eaten immediately.
