Thai Food

Recommended Posts

Before my sister visited Thailand, she had eaten Thai food ~6 times at various Thai restaurants in the US. Never cared much for it. Way too sweet, and not very spicy either. She was concerned that she wouldn't care for the food in Thailand...

 

Man, was that fear ever unfounded! Thai food IN Thailand is by far the best food she have ever eaten. It blew her former favorite, Mexico, down to second place. She have been there about 8 times now in the past 3 years, and after the second time, she have found her favorite dishes. These are the staples that she live on while there.

 

1) Kaeng Pa. "Jungle curry" "red curry soup"

One of the spiciest Thai dishes she is told. It's a vegetable soup with your choice of meats or seafood. The combo of flavors makes this her favorite dish in the world. She eat it at least every other day there.

 

2) Kra Pao. "meat or seafood stir-fry with hot basil and chilis"

 

3) Larb Pla Dook. "minced catfish salad w/dried and fresh chilis, onion, lime and fresh herbs"

 

4) Kaeng Kiaw Waan Gai. "green curry chicken w/vegetables"

 

5) Khao Pad Gai. "chicken fried rice"

 

6) Tom Yam Kung. "hot & sour soup with shrimp"

 

7) Som Tam. "spicy papaya salad"

Thanks to Madhu for reminding her. She doesn't think she have ever seen this in a sit-down restaurant. It is strictly street-food fare, at least the style she like is..

 

She try at least one new thing almost every day to mix things up, and 95% has been excellent, but this is what she live on for weeks at a time.

 

Since many here have been to Thailand, what did YOU eat and love there?

Favorite so far is rice fried with shrimp paste (kaao kluk ga-bpi) ข้าวคลุกกะปิ

 

I like fun dishes, this one is rice with shrimp paste and tiny whole shrimp (prawns) in it, surrounded by chillies, onion, pinapple, cucumber a sweet pork and some shredded ommlet. You kinda mix each mouthfull to get the quantities of each ingredient you like just right.

 

Also, apparently "ga bpi" กะปิ is thai slang for vagina, so it's also got that going for it too !!

You cant beat the street food, its cheap and has so much flavour. The different varietys blew me away. Im usually a chiil eater but after staying at my wifes family house up north it sort of changed my opinion on chillis. Everything was covered in red or green and wow they were hot. I have found lots of food without chillis now and my wife cooks with less chilli just to please me.

I'd recommend 'hah sib percent phet' = 50% hot. 'Percent' is a borrowed word, or 'same same English' :GoldenSmile1:

 

Thai food is ridiculously hot & this is coming from someone who used to eat Madras / Vindaloo / Phall in the UK on a regular basis.

 

I quite like Isaan food:

 

Lab Moo - Minced pork usually served with Thai salad.

 

Nam Tok - Literally 'waterfall'. Chunks of usually pork (moo), mixed with red onions & green chillies. Goes well with Kow Neow (sticky rice).

 

Pad Prik Gang - Fried veg of some sort, shoots I think. Don't know too much about this but it's hella-tasty.

 

I tried some pork the other day called 'Moo Torn'. Apparently it's pork + skin from a castrated pig, which I only found out because the GF calls me it all the time; must be love. :GoldenSmile1:

I can't eat anything too spicy tbh and half the stuff I have eaten out there I don't actually know the name of.

 

But one of the nicest things I ever ate was when a lady I was with at the Billabong wnet to a market with me and bought (well I bought she picked the stuff out 5555) a whole pile of vegatables and meat. Went up to her room and cooked it for me while I was down stairs playing pool. Good girl even bought me a pie, I don't have a clue where she got it, for my birthday, Thai girls gotta love them :D

LOL that's one thing I don't miss from the (y)UK. I'm quite partial to the ros bif flavour though. :GoldenSmile1:

You mean she paid her own bar-fine? :GoldenSmile1:
