A Culinary Trip to Thailand

My visit to Thailand in November was well planned and executed by Ignite Travel Solution. Being a foodie, I always looked forward to tasting authentic Thai recipes. Accompanied by my friend, we set out on a trip to Thailand to explore its treasure trove of flavors.

Planning this journey with Ignite Travel Solution, acclaimed as the best international tour operator in India, ensured an enriching experience that unveiled the essence of Thai cuisine through its curated Thailand tour packages.

What is the main cuisine of Thailand?

Thailand’s gastronomic scene is beyond what words can describe. At the heart of Thai flavors, cooking is the art of balancing the five key flavors: sweet, spice, sour, bitter, and salt. This balance is very evident in every dish, from the bustling street food stalls to high-end restaurants, making every meal an adventure in taste. A trip to Thailand, especially when organized by a seasoned tour operator like Ignite Travel Solution, promises an authentic dive into these culinary delights.

Why is Thai cuisine famous?

The global fame of Thai cuisine can be credited to its unique flavors that stand out through the use of fresh herbs, spices and a wide array of ingredients that are native to the region. Thai cooking techniques range from grilling and boiling to pounding and stir frying, contributing to the unique textures and flavors that have captivated food lovers worldwide. The best international tour operator in India, Ignite Travel Solution, often highlights these culinary experiences as key components of their trip to Thailand tour packages, encouraging travelers to immerse themselves in the local food culture. The speciality of Thai cuisine lies in its regional diversity and the emphasis on fresh ingredients. From the spicy curries of the South to the mild aromatic dishes of the North, each region offers its unique take on traditional Thai flavors. The street food culture in Thailand is another aspect that draws foodies from around the globe. Exploring local markets and street food stalls is often a highlight of Thailand tour packages, providing a glimpse into the country’s rich heritage.

Must try dishes from Thailand

Five must-try dishes from Thailand:

For the ultimate foodie adventure in Thailand, here are five dishes that you must absolutely try.

  1. Pad Thai: The quintessential Thai stir-fried noodle dish is known for its complex flavors. Often celebrated as the National Dish of Thailand, Pad Thai is made with soak dried rice noodles which are then stir fried with eggs, tofu and flavored with tamarind pulp, fish sauce, dried shrimp, garlic or shallots, red chili pepper and palm sugar and served with lime wedges and chopped roasted peanuts. This dish is popular among locals and tourists alike.
  2. Tom Yum Goong: Rich flavors and  colors make the Tom Yum Goong soup. This is a hot and sour soup featuring all Thai spices like sour, sweet, salt and spice. Originating in Central Thailand the soup is a blend of fragrant lemongrass, chilly, lime leaves, shallots, fish sauce and lime juice. In some places coconut milk is added to the soup making it richer and creamier. The orange color of the soup is from the fatty juice in the head of the prawns which add aroma, color and taste to it. The soup is believed to have immune views boosting power.
  3. Som Tam: This on-the-go item can be found across the streets of Thailand. The star of this preparation is Green Papaya. The salad is made from crunchy shavings of green papaya, dried shrimp, long beans, tomatoes, roasted peanuts, Thai chillies and garlic. All the ingredients are tossed along with salty, sour and sweet dressing of fish sauce; lime juice and sugar is added to it. The spiciness of the dish can be adjusted by decreasing or increasing the amount of Thai chillies in the preparation.
  4. Mango Sticky Rice: A healthy and satisfying dessert featuring gluten free sticky rice served with a licious coconut sauce and sliced mangoes. Sticky rice has a soft and chewy texture that is different from regular rice. To make the coconut milk thicker corn flour is also added to the dessert. The preparation is a  good source of dietary fiber that aids digestion.
  5. Green Curry: A creamy spicy curry made with green chillies coconut milk and fresh herbs. The curry gets its color from green cayenne peppers, basil, lime leaves, lime and cilantro. It has a complete flavor profile that leaves you wanting for more. Because of its ingredients, the curry is said to be rich in anti-inflammatory properties.
