Thailand is world famous for its delicious culinary offerings, from starters to desserts and everything in between. Thai cooks carefully balance savory, sweet, spicy, sour, and salty flavors in each dish. The Land of Smiles has something to get everyone’s taste buds tingling and leave you wanting more..

Thailand is a country that boasts dreamy white-sand beaches, bustling cities, and incredible culture. And on top of all of that, one of the most flavorsome, fragrant, and exciting cuisines in the world.

Khao Niew Mamuang

Khao Niew Mamuang may be the only dessert to get a mention, but our list would not be complete without it. This simple, traditional Thai dessert is made by pairing fresh mango with sweetened sticky rice served with coconut milk.

Well-loved by locals, it is available all year round but is cheapest and freshest during Thailand’s mango season, from April to May.

Tom Kha Gai

Tom Kha Gai is a soup rich in coconut milk and galangal root, made with earthy Asian mushrooms and tender chicken. It contains fragrant ingredients, such as lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves, giving it a slightly sour taste. Sprigs of cilantro add a delicious freshness.

Chilli is optional in this dish, so Tom Kha Gai is an excellent choice for those that aren’t so keen on lots of spice.

Moo Satay

This classic Asian snack can be found widely throughout South-East Asia and is loved by Thais and foreigners alike. Traditionally satay is barbequed meat marinated in turmeric and coconut milk, put on a skewer served with a rich and indulgent peanut sauce. Commonly pork or chicken is used.

However, you will find that the choice of meat may vary from restaurant to restaurant. Perfect as a starter or an afternoon snack.
