As exotic as its culture and nightlife, Thailand’s cuisine is a tantalising smorgasbord of flavours and aromas. Dishes in Thailand vary from region to region, each with its own characteristic taste. Dining in Bangkok is an experience that no bona fide foodie should miss and the Thai capital offers everything from restaurants to street side eateries serving a rich array of dishes. What is great is that certain dining venues like the one at AVANI Atrium Bangkok offer all-day dining, perfect for those who get those cravings at all sorts of hours. Of course, when it comes to typical Thailand cuisine there are some signature dishes that should be on any foodies ‘must try’ list.
The Thai people certainly love to have some spice in their dishes and even their salads pack quite a punch! Case in point would be the green papaya salad known as Som Tum. This zesty salad wonderfully combines raw papaya that has been shredded with chillies, garlic and cherry tomatoes. Some variations also incorporate the added goodness of peanuts or salted crab into the dish. Soup is a favourite amongst Thais, and the fiery shrimp soup called Tom Yum Goong is not to be missed. A perennial favourite Thai ingredient, lemongrass, features in this classic soup which has a heavenly and distinct aroma. Fresh prawns and mushroom combine with everything from galangal and shallots to fish sauce and chilli which join hands with the lemongrass to provide the soup with its power packed flavour.
Another dish from Thailand that has become a favourite globally is Pad Thai, a fried noodle speciality done in a delectable Thai manner incorporating egg, onion, fish sauce, ground peanuts and sugar. Red and green curries are amongst the other local favourites and the red curry dish of Gaeng Daeng and the green chicken curry called Gaeng Keow Wan Kai are well worth adding to your list of Thai cuisine exploration.
