If you enjoy traveling and exotic cuisine, one can argue that Thailand has some of the absolute best cuisine around. Their food is unique, full of flavors and just all around phenomenal! Thailand is world famous for its mouthwatering cuisine and bold, exciting flavors. There are a ton of different and exciting cuisines you can try in Thailand, but in my personal experiences, these three are the absolute best and most delicious!
The first best Thai food dish on this list is called Guay Teow and it is a really comforting and delicious noodle soup. This dish is quite common just about everywhere in Thailand so you can find it just about anywhere you go there. It is typically served with some kind of meat (chicken, pork, or beef – whichever you like) and it also has either rice noodles or egg noodles, broth, sugar, dried chili peppers, lime juice, and fish sauce. Guay Teow can also be eaten any time of the day too, so you can enjoy it at breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It is comforting, hearty, and perfectly filling.
Number two on our list of scrumptious Thai dishes is called Som Tam. This is a very spicy dish but it’s combinations of unique ingredients gives it a bold taste that you won’t soon forget. Som Tam is a spicy, green, papaya salad. It has tomatoes, shredded green papaya, peanuts, carrots, palm sugar, runner beans, dried shrimp, fish sauce, lime juice, garlic, tamarind pulp, and tons of chilis. The ingredients are all blended together and topped with a little bit of oil. The dish has a pleasant sweetness to it but there is an exciting spicy too, which is very prominent. It has a lot of bold flavors and it’s very satisfying. It is also really exciting in appearance too. This salad is very colorful and vibrant. For those of you who enjoy snapping pictures of your food and putting it on Instagram, this is definitely a dish to do that with!
The last delicious must-try Thai dish on our list is called Pak Boong, which translates to ‘Morning Glory’ in Thai. It is mostly a breakfast dish, but in some parts of Thailand you can eat it any time of the day. It is a very healthy dish and it combines a wide array of flavors, depending on the amount of seasonings that you get. It is a spinach like vegetable, which is friend and seasoned with soy sauce, garlic, chilis, and soybean paste. This dish is spicy, salty, sour, and even crunchy all at the same time. It is a very unique dish, to say the least, but it’s bold and fun and absolutely scrumptious! Some versions of this dish are served with meats and even noodles.
And these are honestly but a small taste of what Thailand has to offer. Their cuisine is unabashedly amazing and it doesn’t apologize for its dazzle. You won’t be disappointed in this incredible cuisine and you should definitely experience this unbelievable culture’s wonderful food.
