7 Most Popular Thai Foods in Bangkok – time to savour Asian cuisine

Asian food is no longer uncommon in Europe or any other non-Asian region. All the authentic flavour of Asian cuisine such as Thai food can be difficult to experience outside of Thailand. Here are some of the most popular Thai dishes in Bangkok:

1. Gaeng Daeng (red curry)
Another delicious curry prepared in coconut milk, the red curry is a common, yet popular delicacy among many locals which can easily be prepared while you are on holiday at any serviced apartment in Bangkok. All you need are some leftover crumbs of meat, red curry paste, kaffir lime leaves and a good amount of coconut milk to smoothen the curry.

2. Tom Yum Goong (spicy shrimp soup)
When you get to savour Tom Yum Goong (spicy shrimp soup), you will realise how aromatic Thai foods are. The soup is a fusion of all the heavenly ingredients like lime leaves, shallots, galangal, lemongrass, chilli and lime juice. Try out this dish in restaurants or hotels such as Metropole Bangkok to experience the deliciousness of this Thai soup firsthand. The distinctive combination of fresh mushrooms and prawns creates an addictive flavor.

3. Som Tum (spicy green papaya salad)
Shredded well in a pestle and mortar (indigenous cookery equipment seen in most Asian countries), som tum is a mouth-watering combination of chillies, garlic, green beans and cherry tomatoes. That biting flavour stemming from the sour-spicy ingredients will never be forgotten.

4. Tom Kha Kai (chicken in coconut soup)
Thai chefs have an amazing talent in offering different culinary interpretations of chicken. Tom kha kai has neatly cut strips of chicken along with other fresh ingredients of galangal, shallots and lemongrass. The lime leaves topping the soup add an appetising aroma to the soup.

5. Pad Thai (Thai style fried noodles)
Outside Thailand, Pad Thai is symbolic of Thai cuisine. This is the dish you will get to see whenever you step into a Thai eatery at any European food court. Although there are many variations, its basic elements consist of a bowl of noodles with onion, beansprouts and an egg to top it off.

6. Khao Pad (fried rice)
Just like fried noodles, fried rice too has eggs and onions. Many places mix in distinctive herbs too, resulting in this main dish being known for its sweet, herby aroma and flavour!

7. Pad Krapow Moo Saap (fried basil and pork)
Last but not the least popular! Thanks to the lavish use of basil leaves, this dish entices you with its divine aroma. The well minced pork adds much richness to the food.
