Like most other Asian cuisines, rice is the staple grain of Thai cuisine. According to Thai food expert McDang, rice is the first and most important part of any meal, and the words for rice and food are the same: khao. As in many other rice eating cultures, to say "eat rice" (in Thai "kin khao"; pronounced as "keen cow") means to eat food. Rice is such an integral part of the diet that a common Thai greeting is "kin khao reu yang?" which literally translates as "Have you eaten rice yet?".

Apples, pears, peaches, grapes, and strawberries, which do not traditionally grow in Thailand and in the past had to be imported, have become increasingly popular in the last few decades since they were introduced to Thai farmers by the Thai Royal Projects, starting in 1969, and the Doi Tung Project since 1988. These temperate fruit grow especially well in the cooler, northern Thai highlands, where they were initially introduced as a replacement for the cultivation of opium, together with other crops such as cabbages, tea, and arabica coffee.

Most of the insects taste fairly bland when deep-fried, somewhat like popcorn and prawns. But when deep-fried together with kaffir lime leaves, chilies and garlic, the insects become an excellent snack to go with a drink. In contrast to the bland taste of most of these insects, the maeng da or maelong da na (Lethocerus indicus) has been described as having a very penetrating taste, similar to that of a very ripe gorgonzola cheese. This giant water bug is famously used in a chili dip called nam phrik maeng da. Ant eggs and silkworms are eaten boiled in a soup in Isan, or used in egg dishes in northern Thailand.
Wife and I ordered curry for lunch. Panang and Masaman curry. To Go. $30. Avid Thai enthusiast. We both love Thai. Worst Thai dish I have had in forever. Both looked identical. Should have taken photos. Both orange in color. Never seen that before. Masaman just had chunks of potatoes and 3 peanuts. It was not good. Panang curry. My favorite. Was so odd I could not tell what kind of curry it was. Place was empty. Maybe good chefs work nights. Unlikely to return. Yum Yum Sab - Thai Restaurant
Kaeng ranchuan แกงรัญจวน Central Kaeng ranchuan is a beef curry and fermented shrimp paste chili sauce, similar to tom yam. It was created by chef in royal households from the leftovers and turned in new dish by combining pieces of meat and leftover sauce especially nam phrik kapi. The most popular of all dip is nam phrik kapi, a very delicious sauce of Thailand because this sauce can be eaten with everything. Many Thai chefs reformed kaeng ranchuan to restaurants after it was mentioned by culinary authority ML Nueang Ninrat, in a memoir explaining her life during the reign of King Rama V and VI. The people misunderstand about the origin and preparation of kaeng ranchuan because of famous TV series that do the wrong method of this dish and make people remember that this is the real kaeng ranchuan preparation method. So, the real kaeng ranchuan is in ML Ninrat book “Life in the Palace” she tells how her grandmother, the princess Sabai Ninrat created this dish. At the end of dinner there was leftovers so she asked her assistant to separate the meat from chili and basil. Then, she mixed it into a broth and added leftover of Nam prhrik kapi, so this is called the real kaeng ranchuan.

I got a sneak peek of this place this past week when I ordered from Door Dash because I frequently crave Pad Thai, but also sushi. And I also just so happen to like it delivered to me as well while I work from home. I ordered Prawn Pad Thai and Spicy Tuna rolls, super fresh and delicious! A friend of ours loves this place and is friends with the owner and I texted him to let him know how much I loved it. He insisted that we go back and try more of their food. We scheduled to go dine in with him on Saturday night. Saturday comes around and we are all so excited to try this place; we knew we were in for a treat. We had to try some of the specials, starting with the crispy Umami which were some kick butt greens. I spotted rock shrimp on the menu so I had to try it, it also had spicy mayo, so how could I pass that up? Also insanely delicious, I am a sucker for rock shrimp so you have to try this if you are too! Also got the Wahoo Truffle- another item on the specials list; this was so good- I could have ordered it twice. The main course, the big daddy of our meal was the sashimi platter- what a sight this was! Beautifully decorated and gloriously packed with all the best and fresh sashimi, from tuna to salmon to prawns, to cups of wasabi mixutures- I cant even name them all there was so much to choose from, I had to try it all! I also managed to spot the pineapple fried rice, absolutely delicious, one of our favorites at anothe restaurant; so we couldn't pass it up. It was fresh, contained crunchy nuts and a tang of pineapple to keep it interesting. I can't believe I waited so long to try this place! Don't let it happen to you!!

Lap Lanna ลาบล้านนา North Northern Thai lap is completely different from lap from northeastern Thailand. Northern Thai lap is made by mixing raw or cooked minced meat (mainly pork, beef, chicken or fish) with an elaborate mix of dry spices and herbs. The northern Thai lap does not contain lime juice or fish sauce. The version in the image is lap khua, meaning that the meat has been fried. Thai Yum Yum Restaurant
I came to this restaurant yesterday with my wife and other family and we were greeted my the hostess and she sat us a table that was not wiped down, it still had food particles on top. We asked her to wipe the table and she said that the servant will do it. When the servant came she looked at the table and said "it's weird that they sat you at this dirty table" and we told her that the hostess told us that the servant will clean the table. She was very surprised by that, but said it's no problem she will do it. The servant was very nice the whole time, we liked her. The food was not bad. I had the dragon roll and asked them to put raw jalapenos on top and it wasn't a problem for them. 3 stars because of the dirty table.

Thai cuisine only became well-known worldwide from the 1960s on, when Thailand became a destination for international tourism and US troops arrived in large numbers during the Vietnam War. The number of Thai restaurants went up from four in 1970s London to between two and three hundred in less than 25 years.:3–4 The earliest attested Thai restaurant in the United States, "Chada Thai", opened its doors in 1959 in Denver, Colorado. It was run by the former newspaper publisher Lai-iad (Lily) Chittivej. The oldest Thai restaurant in London, "The Bangkok Restaurant", was opened in 1967 by Mr and Mrs Bunnag, a former Thai diplomat and his wife, in South Kensington. อาหารไทย - Thai Food Near Me by Chumnan
The global popularity of Thai cuisine is seen as an important factor in promoting tourism, and also increased exports of Thailand's agricultural sector. It is a result of deliberate "gastrodiplomacy". In June 2009, the Tourism Authority of Thailand organised a conference to discuss these matters at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre in Bangkok. TAT Governor Seree Wangpaichitr said, "This conference was long overdue. The promotion of Thai cuisine is one of our major niche-market targets. Our figures show that visitors spent 38.8 billion baht on eating and drinking last year, up 16% over 1997."
