Central Regional Thai Food

Thai in the central plain is a visual sensation - the dinning table is often decorated with carved vegetable and fruit. In central region of Thailand, food is hot, salty, sweet and sour. Rice is served with different types of nam phrik and soups contain a lot of spices.

Bangkok in the heart of the Central is a magnet for culinary influences from all around. But the local specialties persist and have preserved their mark. The best rice is grown in this region, notably the khao hom mali, or jasmine rice, that is so highly rated as a Thai export. There are three curries typical of the region, namely the familiar green curry (kaeng khieo wan) to which is usually added poultry or fish; a hot curry known as kaeng phet , and a milder version called kaeng phanaeng . All are based on coconut milk. Tom Yam , the famous hot and sour soup, originates from the Central region. There is also a creamy coconut milk soap made with chicken called tom kha kai . Yam, the tangy salads, are a Central invention. Haw mok, little banana leaf cups of a souffl?-like mix made from red curry paste, egg and coconut milk, with seafood added, are a popular snack item. Phat pet is a stirfry with basil and curry paste. Most meals in the Central region will include an omelets of some kind, either a plain one served with a thick sweet chilli sauce, or with oysters added. There is a more substantial omelets filled with ground pork, tomato and onion, called khai yat sai.

The northern part of Thailand is famous for its sausage known as Naem. This is fermented minced pork with a sour flavour and is sold wrapped in banana leaf. While the food in northeast is hot, salty and sour. The northeast is famous for its papaya salad, sour chopped meat salad and sour minced meat salad. In the northeast condiments are used and not spices. The southern part of Thailand is famous for its hot, salty and sour food. Curries are a specialty of this part.
