Walking through the silent market in Mae Klong, a food stall did business at the exit. A griddle was seen on the wagon. And an older woman stood beside it. When I came here, she was just spreading the dough thinly on the hot griddle. She was cooking Khanom Buean. There were many round-spread doughs in front of her.

Khanom Buean is a kind of crispy pancake. And it is very popular in Thailand. It is common to see stalls selling it. As the shape on the griddle shows, it looked like crepes. Therefore, some people think it is connected to crepes in France.

I don't know how much of the relation is true. It is said Khanom Bean was eaten in the Sukhothai Kingdom period at any rate. Anyway, the one thing that's more important than anything else is it is delicious.
