Cuisines and Fruits

Cuisines

Thai cuisine blends elements of several Southeast Asian traditions. Thai food is known for its balance of three to four fundamental taste senses in each dish or the overall meal: sour, sweet, salty and bitter.

" Kung “means shrimp, the translation is actually sour and spicy shrimp soup. The soup ingredients commonly used cuttle fish and other seafood or prawns. The soup is not very spicy, but when you get used to it, a lot of people will be greedy for it.

Thai Fish Cakes

These fish cakes are not like the western style frying. They were tapped before they were fried. The best is that has just been fried out of a hot oil pan, and then dipped in a little bit pungent, spicy chili sauce.

Fruits


Durian

Durian, known as the "king of fruit", is one of the unique and delicious fruits in Thailand. The durian was soft and slightly mushy (perfect), and just slightly golden yellow in color. If you like it, the durian flesh was incredibly creamy and smooth, and just absolutely packed with an amazing sweetness.

Jackfruit

Thailand is a major producer of jackfruit, which are often cut, prepared, and canned in a sugary syrup (or frozen in bags/boxes without syrup) and exported overseas, frequently to North America and Europe.




Mangosteen

Mangosteen is known as the "Queen of fruit". The purple mangosteen is a sweet and juicy fruit when ripe. One of the favorite fruits of many Thais. Thailand is the largest producer of mangosteen. The peak season to find it on Thai markets it is from May to September.


Mango

Mangoes could be found almost in every big city in the world nowadays but for sure they are not as good and sweet as in Bangkok. When walking around Bangkok you gotta try Thai mangoes and also the most popular Thai dessert: Mango Sticky Rice.


Dragon Fruit in Red

Also known as Pitaya, the shape and colors of this fruit are quite special. It has a similar texture of a melon or a kiwifruit but its taste is a bit blander. The taste of dragon fruit in red is better than ones in white.



Guava

In Thailand, people normally eat it with sugar. The name of this fruit in Thai is actually the same word Thais use for western foreigners. So if you are around Thai people and you hear the word farang, chances are that they are talking about you… or maybe about this fruit.

Rambutan

Rambutan, just like Dragon fruit, has a cool shape and colors. Its English name comes from the Malaysian word for hair, rambut. As long as they are bigger than a golf ball, they’ll be sweet enough to be enjoyed.




Papaya

Papaya is native to the tropics of the Americas and it was first cultivated in Mexico and introduced in Thailand around 200 years ago. It is easy to grow and has a very good taste so it is a wide world used fruit. When unripe, papayas are the main ingredient for a very popular Thai salad called som tam (or papaya salad).

Snake Fruit

The Snake Fruit is another sweet little fruit you can only find in Southeast Asia. It is native to Indonesia but easily found in the streets of Bangkok. Thais normally dip it in a sauce mix of salt and sugar.
