The Food festival is a special culinary food trail made by expert chef Kluaywan Junsawat. Thai food has a reputation for being spicy however it is actually based on a balance between different flavors including spicy, sour, sweet, salty,and bitter. This goes beyond simply combining the flavors within an individual dish to incorporate the contrast in flavors between two or three-different dishes. One distinctive aspect is the use of fresh herbs and spices. Thai food is also influenced by neighboring countries, such as China, Laos, Burma, and Malaysia.
Thailand is the world’s largest exporter of rice. Hence, rice is the staple food and is had with most meals, from breakfast to dessert. The most esteemed Thai rice is Jasmine Rice, sweet-smelling long-grain rice. Served steamed, jasmine rice is the finest rice to accompany most dishes, including Thai curries.
While noodle dishes are quite common in Thailand (it is an influencebrought by Chinese migrants) most Thai dishes are stir fried or grilled and served with rice. As Thai meals are typically served family style, with all diners , a Thai curry or soup is usually ordered with a meal. The consistency of each Thai curry varies widely, with some curries arguably classifiable as soups. However, most Thai curries are coconut milk-based and some are spicier than others. While Thai curries are shared and meantto be ladled over rice, soups are served communally with diners receiving small bowls to eat out of. Although some curries and soups can be served without meat for vegetarians, many Thai cooks put fish sauce in all dishes as it’s the Thai substitute for salt.
The dishes what I tried were a perfect amalgamation of some yummy and tasty flavours I would highly recommend to try out Grilled stuffed chicken wings (Gai yed Sai) Grilled chicken balls with yam sauce (luckhin yang), Chicken thick Red Thai curry (Penang curry) Egg wrapped pad Thai noodles !!!
