Top Thai Food around Bangkok: a carnival of tastes

Spicy, sweet with the right amounts of tang, Thai food is a delight to the senses. Even though it is impossible to list the best Thai food, as it varies depending on an individual’s taste, there are those that are unarguably the best. AVANI Bangkok Riverside is a luxury hideout that houses the best Bangkok restaurants. When planning your trip, it would be best to note the dishes that are definite crowd-pleasers. But also know the ingredients and spices that set the dishes aflame, these will help you choose what would appease you the most. Here is a subjective list of the best Thai Food you will find around Bangkok.

You’ve always heard of it yet never tasted it, Tom Yum Goong. This spicy shrimp soup is fragrant and delicious. Lemongrass, chilli, galangal, lime leaves, shallots, lime juice and fish sauce are brought together, along with juicy prawns and straw mushrooms to create a soup that is a bowl of ‘Thai Heaven’.

To love or to hate, Som Tum or the spicy green papaya salad is refreshingly different in texture and in taste. Here’s what makes the dish fabulous: garlic, chilies, green beans, cherry tomatoes and shredded raw papaya. The rich taste the dish offers will leave an indelible mark on your tongue and your memory.

Tom Kha Kai or chicken in coconut soup is a tropical blast. Much like Tom Yum Goong, yet creamier and richer, the soup is a magical blend of chilies, delicately sliced young galangal, crushed shallots, lemongrass and succulent ribbons of chicken. Of course, coconut milk makes the preparation ‘to die for’.

It’s a treat for all curry-lovers! GaengDaeng or red curry is best when prepared with tender meat, red curry paste and coconut milk. A dash of lime leaves completes this incredibly delicious dish.

Recreated in most parts of the world, Pad Thai or Thai style fried noodles is on every foodie’s list of favourite food. Noodles of different sizes and textures (depending on one’s preference) are tossed into a hot wok along with beansprouts, onions and egg. Just the right amounts of fish sauce, sugar, chilli powder and ground peanuts compliment the dish.

Imagining the dishes would not satisfy those burning desires, visit Bangkok and gobble them all!
