Thai cuisine is a creative coming-together of exotic flavors and fragrances. Whether you’re in it for the noodles or the exciting treat for your taste buds, here are five Thai dishes you really ought to try.

Pad Thai

Pad Thai is the go-to international Thai dish, and for good reason. The noodles are cooked in a hot wok and mixed with all sorts of veggies and meats. You can pretty much flavor Pad Thai however you like, and it will almost definitely be delicious.

Gaeng Daeng

Gaeng Daeng is a Thai red curry, and it is rich in flavor. It is most often cooked with tender meats and coconut milk. It is a less spicy option for people who love curry but can’t handle the heat.

Yam Nua

Yam Nua is a salad for people who usually get bored with salad. It contains a mix of flavors and tender strips of beef. Everything then comes together to create one of the most delicious Thai dishes and the best salad you’ll ever have.

Khao Pad

Khao Pad is essentially fried rice with a few herbs and some egg. It may not sound like much, but it’s perfectly simple and perfectly delicious.

Tom Yum Goong

Tom Yum Goong is a versatile dish with a stunning fragrance. A combination of lime leaves, lemongrass and fish sauce creates that gorgeous Thai flavor that we can’t get enough of.
