Placing great emphasis on lightly prepared meals with strong aromatic flavours and a spicy element makes Thai cuisine stand out among most. The combination of either sour, sweet, salty, bitter or spicy, as well as colour and texture, is why most people are drawn to Thai food. The balance and play of flavours is unlike any other – it demonstrates intricacy and attention to detail.
Some of the must-try dishes include Thai rice curry, green curry (a favourite for many), massaman curry, pad Thai, som tam, tom yam goong, and moo nam tok. These are also some of the dishes that were featured on the “World’s 50 Best Foods (Readers’ Picks)” – which gives you more reason to try them.
