True Thai Taste
Thai green papaya salad
(known in Thai as "Som Tam", "ส้มตำ") is an extremely popular dish in Thai cuisine. It's fresh, and balances all the flavors of sweet, spicy, salty, and sour, to perfection
on a single plate. After washing the green papaya, peel off the skin using a carrot peeler
(or a knife will do as well).
TOM YUM KUNG
"Tom Yum Goong" (sometimes pronounced Tom Yum Kung) is the flavour that defines Thailand! “Tom” refers to boiling process, while “Yum” refers to a kind of Lao and Thai spicy and sour salad. Thus, “tom yum” is a Lao and Thai hot and sour soup and is indeed the most famous Thai soup.
In Thai it’s called khao neow mamuang, means glutinous sticky rice, while mamuang means mango in Thai.
Within Thai cooking, sticky rice is the staple starch of northern and northeastern Thai cuisine (Isaan), and it’s also commonly used in all sorts of Thai desserts.
