Your favourite thai-dish ?

Recommended Posts

Sorry if im posting in the wrong forum i couldnt find a "food" segment here.

But share youre favourite dishes, and if possible what it is and what makes it special :)

My number 1 with absolutely no comparision is Tom Ka Gai, coconut soup with chicken, i actually like it without the chicken when im out as i get more soup which i could live off the rest of my life.

Its creamy and the coconut combined with the little spicy spark (i really enjoy when they make it really spicy) - just melts in the mouth, taste is superb.

Im wondering if there are any other dishes where coconut is used like that, if there are sauces or similar made with coconut ?

Many Thai dishes have coconut milk as an ingredient. They are influenced by Hindu foreign trade with Siam in Ayuthaya kingdom, coconut and spices. (stir-fry from chinese culture and desserts from western, Portugal.)

coconut milk (ka-thi) high in Cholesterol though, heart disease must watch out.

I like Fried rice, no MSG please.

love it when they insert Thai classical music in the background letting you know it's Thai. Could have been Chinese. :P

I agree Tonia no MSG -- and I can't handle the chiles :wink:

I remember having the Tom Yam Kai in Chiang Mai, the waitress asked me how hot I wanted it so I asked for it be very hot.

I sat there sweating away for 20 minutes and the waitress came back over and looked at my receipt and laughed "Medium!" :lol:

Later that night I was walking home and she passed me on her moped and pointed and laughed at me again "Medium!!!"

Most street food they serve during Kim Jay Festival. There was one time I ate some strewed cabbage during lunch at one stall outside the Wat Pho TTM School and I was hooked (never did like cabbage much but this one was exceptional), so I had it again for lunch on another day when I had lesson at Wat Pho TTM School again. There were also the bamboo shoots cooked with spicy, thin gravy and the fried yam thingy.

Really a pity that Kim Jay comes round once a year only. Now, I wonder where these stall-holders and their yummy dishes go to during non-Kim Jay period? :P

(Sorry, I tried loading pics of the dishes up here but the pic doesn't seem to appear... I especially have trouble with the (alt+p) instruction - I tried pressing the "alt" and the "p" button together but it is not working. Probably I'm just dumb :) )
