When you visit an authentic Thai Restaurant, you can almost certainly order Tom Yum Soup, a local cuisine usually made with prawns, chillies, herbs and spices. In fact, you can even order it from the street vendors too. Don't worry, it's perfectly safe to eat.
Everyone talks about this traditional spicy dish so when in Thailand, give it a shot, then let me how much you enjoyed it. And if you liked this dish and would like to try it at home, I have prepared a delicious Tom Yam Soup Recipe for you to enjoy.
Thai cuisine doesn't stop here either as witnessed by the dramatic number of Thai restaurants opening up all around the world. There must be something about Thai cuisine that everyone loves. You might find that once you arrive in Thailand, you fall into a Thai feeding frenzy that could last longer than your stay
The basic ingredients in the preparation of Thai cuisine are coconut, (Thailand has an abundance of coconut plantations) ginger, lemon grass, coriander and chillies. Please take caution when ordering a meal with chillies as some of the smaller ones are guaranteed to dissolve your sinuses and bring tears to your eyes.
Keep a big jug of water handy. On second thoughts, make that a jug of beer. You can always ask the Thai restaurant chef to tone down the intensity to suit your particular taste. And never put off what you can eat today, tomorrow, because if you eat it today and love it, you can do it all over again tomorrow.
Thailand is well known for its famous award winning gourmet restaurants with international cuisine. In all the big cities you will find American, English, Italian, French, German, Spanish, Indian, Mexican, (my favourite) Japanese, Middle-Eastern and even Vietnamese and Korean which are fast becoming very popular. My where-to-eat guide does not stop here either and I haven't even mentioned any vegetarian hot spots.
One thing for sure and that is, you could never starve here in Thailand. Everywhere you look around, there is food, food and more food. Even as poor countries go, Thailand has an abundance of food. The Thai people know just how to keep it coming. With so many local and international restaurants to choose from, you would definitely be spoilt for choice.
In fact, while I am on the subject of food, I am going to take you on a little tour of some of the local takeaway eateries that only the local Thai people can eat... Well, you can too, but I doubt many of us have the stomach for some of these traditional Thai delicacies. Those of you who have been to Thailand before might know the food I am referring to.
You may well have guessed! There are fried crickets, fried frogs, fried grasshoppers, fried worms, fried spiders and even fried scorpions and other interesting little creatures. You will have to go to my page on Thai Street Food and other creepy crawlies. I would not want you to view this local cuisine on this page until you have finished your meal. Bon appetite!
If you are a junk-food-fan, fear not as you will be spoilt for choice at
any number of your favourite western eateries here in Thailand. They can
be found in all the main cities.
Burgers at McDonald's and Burger King
Chicken at your favourite KFC
Pizza at The Pizza Hut and The Pizza Company
Baguettes at any Subway outlet
Coffee and Cake at Starbucks
Ice-cream at Haagen-Dazs
more could you ask for.... Thailand is home to an abundance of oriental
and western gastronomic pleasures with health foods fast becoming very
popular with organic fruits and vegetables being found everywhere.
