Thai Cuisine
tips & insights



There are many cuisines in the world that freely use hot chili peppers, but few can match the level of Thailand's culinary sophistication.

Flavoring agents

Thai cooks are particularly fond of flavoring agents, particularly:

Lemon grass
Coriander leaves
Nam Pla (fish sauce)
Kapi (shrimp paste)
Java root
And, of course, chilies


As with most other parts of tropical and semitropical Asia, meals in Thailand center on rice.

Best city
for gourmets

Bangkok is the top all-around Thai cuisine city in Thailand. Chiang Mai is the runner-up.
