Thailand Dishes

The healthiest, the most colourful, the tastiest and, in the same time, the less complicated, all these qualities together are owned by the Thailand dishes.

One element present in the Thailand dishes is the rice (kow in Thai), the base of the Thai’s diet and at the most of the lunches the boiled rice (kowsuay) is served. But there are variations, too. The pounded rice (jok) and the rice soup (kow torn) are good for the breakfast but they are served to dinner also, sometimes.

The ’sticky’ rice (kow neeyao) is popular more in North and North East, is eaten with the hand or soaked in soups and pasta. The fry rice is also very popular and can be ordered in many Thailand dishes and combinations:


with pork (mu), with vegetables (jai), chicken (gai) and with shrimps (goong). Among the Thailand dishes is the kow pud American, also very popular. It is a sort of ‘Thai-American’ combination coming from the American soldiers who stayed on the Thailand’s territory during the Vietnam War.
