    A Guide to Thai Food – What you Need to Know

     Of the many cuisines around the world, Thai must be up there with the best; strong tastes are evident, with spicy, sweet and sour dishes that you won’t forget in a hurry. There are good reasons why you will find Thai restaurants in every western city and in this short article, we describe some of the better-known Thai dishes that you should explore.

    Thai curry

    There are so many Thai curries, it would be impossible to list them all, here are some of the favourites:

    Masaman curry – Made with coconut cream, masaman can be made with chicken, pork, beef or shrimp and has a very distinct flavour. One of the few Thai dishes that includes potatoes, with peanuts also being a favourite ingredient.

    Penang curry – Penang is another coconut cream curry, made with chicken, pork or beef, this is traditionally a southern dish that is normally very spicy. A firm favourite with foreigners, this most unusual taste is something everyone should experience at least once in their life.

    Green curry – Made with coconut cream, chicken, pork or beef, this green dish can be very spicy, with a selection of vegetables.

    Spicy soup

    Tom Yam is a very spicy soup that can be made with chicken, pork, beef or seafood, which is perhaps the most popular. Squeeze half a lemon for a sour taste and the dish is consumed with Thai Jasmine rice and is delicious. If you are looking for Tom Yam recipes, Google has you covered, indeed the number one search engine can tell you all about the history of Thai cuisine, while there are many fruits that you can try while holidaying in the Land of Smiles. If you visit the street markets in tourist areas, don’t be surprised to see sex toys and vibrators for sale (which are technically illegal), so we don’t recommend making a purchase. There are online adult stores in Australia, which is a discreet way to stock up with sex toys.

    Pad Thai

    A very famous Thai dish that is made with noodles, with meat or seafood and egg added. Fried in a wok, pad Thai is like a national dish that is prepared nationwide and is not generally spicy. 

    Spicy salad

    Papaya salad is one of the Thai national dishes and it is extremely spicy, with small crabs and dried shrimp added. Som tam is the Thai name for this dish, while in the northeast (Isan), there is a spicy salad called ‘larb’, which can be made with pork, chicken or beef.


    If you love noodles, you will adore Thailand, where noodle stalls are on every corner, made with chicken, beef or pork, there are also beansprouts and when you sit down to eat, the full list of condiments is on the table.

    Other Thai delights include BBQ chicken on a stick, eaten with sticky rice, pork satay with a delicious sauce and fried rice, which is very popular, especially with foreigners who do not like spicy food. 

    If you are planning a holiday in the Royal Kingdom of Thailand, get ready for a unique culinary experience; there are so many Thai fruits that we couldn’t possibly name them all and Thai desserts are awesome.
