I cannot even begin to sing the praises of Thai cuisine. It's spicy, vibrant, colorful, and the list goes on.
Did I mention that the dishes are plentiful. How so? Well, if you were to spend a month in Thailand, you could very well eat something different at every meal. That is how varied Thai cuisine is.
Thailand's cuisine is regional, with curries being more predominant in the south, and sticky rice more a thing of the north. A common dish in the north is minced pork, with shallots, fresh mint and coriander. This is then drizzled with a sauce made with fish sauce and lime juice.
Pad Thai is of course the national dish, which actually has Chinese influence. Another typical dish is green papaya salad, which actually came from Laos.
You can rest assured that there will be many more Thai recipes on this blog in the months to come.
By the way, it helps that this food uses coconut milk a lot, one of my favorite ingredients. You'll see it a lot in Thai curry to cool off the spiciness.
What is the best Thai food? Hmm. It's hard to choose just one dish.
