We are planning a trip through as many South-east Asian countries as we can hit in 1 month (Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, etc. ) and want to make a hit list of street foods to seek out for each country.
What is your top pick for each country? We love Spicy, love sea-food, love soups / stews etc.

Also what street-food dishes are really pushing the envelope of palatability (To avoid or build up courage)

Kanom Jeen - a silky rice noodle with different curries spooned over it

Kai yang, somtam and khao neow - classic Isaan grilled chicken, papaya salad and sticky rice

Up Chiangmai way, find some Khao soy.

Khao mun kai - Thai style chicken rice - in Bangkok head to Kaiton, at soi 30 Petchaburi Road

If you decide to partake in the "gamier" treats - bugs, rats and others - you might do well to do so outside the cities. In the cities, such animals have a very questionable diet!

We loved fresh sugar cane juice in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Thanks Yanks, that looks like a good one. Thanks to Curt for the hyper-specific PM.
We are definitely on the right path.

Not spicy or seafood, but three street items I really enjoyed in Thailand were:

+ Mango sticky rice (as a dessert item, cooked with coconut milk)
+ Dumplings (likely more Chinese than Thai, I had some in Bangkok somewhat near the Grand Palace, and they were better than any I had eaten previously back home in New York City's Chinatown)
+ These bean pancake things (sold at many places on the street in Bangkok, super inexpensive)
