Although you will find something new and exciting in every different corner of this world but Thai food has a hidden spark that entire people world over. In Thailand, you can choose from a range of vegetarian Asian dishes along with non-vegetarian dishes.
No matter what kind of food you like simple, spicy, chilly, or anything else, you will definitely come across a Thai that is exclusively prepared for your taste bud. Many believe that Thai food relies heavily on savory, extremely salty flavour of preserved fish for rich taste. You can feel this flavour in the local dishes such as papaya salad.
Generally, Thai food tends to be some spicy and dishes such as Kaeng Khae and Tom Khlong prove this much extent. Kaeng Khae is typically a curry made of vegetables, herbs, meat and leaves obtained from the acacia plant. On the other hand, Tom khlong is a soup with soreness that comes from the inclusion of tamarind juice. In Thai dishes, you will find mushroom, tomato and dried chilies commonly. In general, there tends to be a balanced flavour in local dishes. It is said that any Thai dish is comprised of the different flavours procured from the four regions of the country. From Isan to the southern part of Thailand, each region has its own aroma and taste. You will definitely see the difference in taste and flavour in the different regions of the country.
Another reason behind the richness of Thai dishes is its close proximity to Chinese cuisine. There are many activities such as deep frying and soy products are inherited from China. I visited Thailand last year and stayed there for almost 15 days and I can still feel the taste and aroma of Thai dishes are a perfect blend of five flavours – spicy, salty, sour, bitter and sweet in a perfect harmony. This is the reason why Thai food is considered to be one of the most popular cuisines in the world.
Whenever it comes to find the best vegetarian Asian dishes, Thailand emerges out to be the most sought after location in the world. People from different parts of the world come here to experience enormous natural beauty and widely accepted cuisine. It is globally known that Thai cuisine puts emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with heavy aromatic components. The local cuisine started becoming popular in 60s when Thailand was acclaimed as international tourism destination and American troops arrived in large numbers. You will find many Thai dishes are included in the best international foods list.
