If you’ve never been to a Thai restaurant because you think you will not like it (you judged their food too soon) or have been to one but did not like what you had (because you ordered the wrong entrée?), well my friend here’s a post dedicated for ya.
WHAT TO DRINK, Thai tea of course, a cold Thai coffee is awesome too, the aroma will make the difference and the taste will linger on (it’s addicting).
WHAT SOUP TO ORDER, You have two choices TOM KHA or TOM YUM, most of the ingredients are the same, kaffir leaves, galangal, lemon grass, cilantro, cayenne pepper but TOM KHA (which I now know how to make ehem) is coconut milk based while TOM YUM is tomato based, either way I promise you, these two alone will make you change your mind about Thai food forever.
WHAT CURRY TO CHOOSE, curry is not Thai exclusive, but if you’re in for a real Thai food adventure, then set the red, yellow and green curry aside, be bold and go for the curry that says “I’m Thai in every slurp or bite”, the “panang curry” (caution this is very very spicy), best eaten with white rice.
SALAD, go straight to the point, order PAPAYA SALAD period.
APPETIZER, satay, which means small pieces of grilled meat on a stick, marinated with curry and dipped on a peanut based sauce.
NOODLES, PAD THAI, a little piece of advice, find a place with good reviews about their Pad Thai, because not everybody does it the same, it’s supposed to taste nutty and sweet but not too sweet.
OTHERS, If you’re looking for protein, highly recommended!!! beef Thai chili basil (because for some reasons? Thai basil was created to make beef taste heavenly.
DESSERT, if you still have a space for a sweet treat, try STICKY RICE WITH MANGO, BUT! please don’t order this when mangoes are not in season (I guess you already know why).
Good luck finding the right Thai food and restaurant for you.
