Tip of the Month
In Thailand, soups usually stay on the table throughout the meal. They can serve as a sauce for rice or dishes that have no sauce of their own. Some soups, such as Hot & Sour Fish Soup, are very light and can be served as a first course, whereas others are more substantial and may be served as a light lunch or supper dish. Finger foods, particularly when sold on the street, is very popular in Thailand. Items like Spring Rolls or Hot Chili Relish with Crudités can be served as an appetizer or as a party food with drinks. Chilies are an essential ingredient in many Thai dishes, and if you are not used to them, add them with caution.
