Thai Cuisine

Thai cuisine is a full kitchen with its systems and specialties. It really contributes to the charm of the Kingdom of Siam and we invite you today to come and discover its best dishes.

The Specialties

  • For breakfast, we recommend you try the Patongos, donuts made from rice flour paste. It’s recommended that you accompany this with hot soymilk. You can find it in the food stalls and the markets.

 

 

 

  • For lunch, ask for a Pad Thai! It’s the national dish that was popularized after the Second World War when the then Prime Minister Phibunsongkram launched a campaign to produce rice pasta to reduce rice consumption.
    You’ll find wok-prepared rice noodles with egg, crushed peanuts, tofu, yellow beans, and shrimp, chicken or pork as you please. All accompanied by a sweet sauce made from lime.

 

 

 

 

  • For dinner, try the Jim Jum! This is a Thai style of hot pot. Once the dish has been ordered, the waiter will bring you a broth placed on a clay pot filled with lit coals to keep it boiling. Next to the broth, you will have a meat and seafood delicacy that you can soak in the broth at your leisure. To accompany this, you will have green vegetables as well as rice vermicelli.
    Change of scenery guaranteed!

 

 

  • Another local specialty for those who like seafood dishes is the spicy shrimp soup! This is how you cook shrimp and vegetables in a broth, but not just any broth! Indeed this one is composed of many ingredients, which are not intended to be eaten, but simply to flavor the dish. You will find, among other ingredients, chilies, coriander, coconut milk, lime juice, lemongrass shoots, kaffir lime leaves, etc…

 

 

  • If you prefer curry dishes, you can order Massaman Curry with your eyes closed! It’s a dish of Muslim origin, a specialty of the southern part of the country. It’s a curry that can be based on duck, chicken, lamb, or pork. The accompanying broth is a real explosion of flavors as it contains a lot of ingredients like cardamom, cinnamon, clove, star anise, cumin, bay leaves, nutmeg, coriander seeds, lemongrass, pepper white, shrimp paste, shallots, garlic, coconut cream, potatoes, tamarind paste, sugar, coconut milk, and peanuts!

 

  • For dessert, Mango Sticky Rice will make you happy. It’s a dessert made up of
    mango placed on sticky rice, all layered with coconut milk. The feeling on the tongue is extremely sweet. Once you’ve tasted it, it’s hard to go without it!
