Top 06 Thai Foods – Fall in love with the best food on earth

In Thailand, it's quite impossible not to fall in love with the food that the country has to offer. No, we are not just talking about the street food culture, but also about the dishes you find when you go fine dining at a good restaurant as well.


Tom Yum Gung

With ingredients such as shrimp, mushrooms, lemongrass, tomatoes, and kaffor lime leaves 'Tom Yum Gung' is a soup that's mostly available at any restaurant in Sukhumvit. You can order this soup in two ways- which is with coconut milk and cream or without. If you want coconut milk and cream loaded in it then go for the 'tom yum gung nam kohm' option and if you want a healthier version of it (that is without coconut milk and cream) go for the 'tom yum gung nam sai' option.


Gang Som Pak Ruam

This is another type of soup you find in Thailand. Served even at great dining places and hotels the likes of Maitria Hotel Sukhumvit 18, this soup dish is an amazing fusion of all sweet, sour, and spicy tastes. They normally pack the base of this soup with veggies the likes of green beans, cabbage, and carrots, and sometimes, they also serve this soup dish with a deep-fried omelet and green vegetable leaf.


Gang Jued

Not just in Thailand, anywhere else in the world, a clear vegetable soup means more of a healthy dish. This does not mean that you have to be sick to enjoy this soup, but adopting healthy eating habits is anyways better for our future. So, in Thailand, they have Gang Jued! This clear vegetable soup is made of carrots, onions, minced pork, glass noodles, and also tofu.


Kao Na Phet

Kao Na Phet means roasted duck, and although this may be odd and new to some nations, in Thailand, it's one of the most demanded and popular dishes of all time. Duck meat is believed to be fattier and of course, tastier than chicken. This dish is generally served with rice and along with it, (as an appetizer maybe) they also serve a duck soup, which is also quite delicious.


Kao Mok Gai

If you are someone that loves Indian biriyani, then you will find this rice dish interesting too. Just like biriyani, Kao mok gai is also cooked with chicken stock and is laced with many ingredients such as saffron, turmeric, and bay leaves. They also sprinkle a killer spicy sauce on it and that definitely makes the dish mind-blowing.


Som Tam

Som Tam has to be the most famous salad in Thailand that is usually available at any restaurant here. Because of its large variety of ingredients such as garlic, chillies, fish sauce, peanuts, tomatoes, tamarind juice, sugar, and string beans, this salad is undoubtedly really delicious. There are many variations such as som tam boo and som tam plah lah, and that depends on the choice of ingredients most of the time.
