Four Thai Dishes You Need To Try Before You Die

Thai cuisine is one of the most popular and beloved cuisines in the world. Thai food is known for its balance of five fundamental flavours in each dish or the overall meal – hot, sour, sweet, salty, and bitter. Each dish is a complex combination of these five flavours, and no one flavour overpowers the others. This is what makes Thai cuisine so unique and delicious. If you’re a fan of Thai dishes, then you’ll want to try these four dishes before you die.

  • Tom Yam Goong:

Tom yum is a traditional Thai soup made from lemon grass, galangal, kaffir lime leaves, fish sauce, lime juice and tomatoes, among other ingredients. The name of the dish translates to “boiled soup” or “hot soup” and it’s commonly served with chicken or shrimp as the protein source. Tom yum is often served at room temperature, so don’t be surprised if you see it arrive on your table in a large bowl with no broth in sight!

  • Green Curry:

Green curry is another famous Thai dish that can be found at most Thai restaurants around the world. It has a very similar flavour profile to tom yum but with a bit more heat from chillies. Green curry also uses coconut milk instead of tomato puree as its base ingredient. The green colour comes from fresh herbs such as basil and cilantro which are added at the end of cooking time along with kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass stalks which are then removed before serving. If you are planning a Thai dinner, consider this dish at top of the list.
