Yummy in my tummy: the Thai cuisine

When in Thailand there are certain things you CAN NOT miss, and I mean the food, all of it!

As a proud Brazilian the thing I miss the most living abroad was the food from Brazil. For the first time I was in a place where the food was as good as!

Thai cuisine is so tasty, spicy and delicious that is hard to pick a favorite dish.  I believe I can describe it as a perfect mix of Indian and Chinese with aplus of lot of coconut.

My advice is to try everything! After that I bet you will want to take the famous cooking class everyone talks about, mostly because you will feel like you can’t live without Pad Thai anymore like, everything will be meaningless without it haha.

But what do they eat there?

You probablly heard that they eat insects and rice right? Not very appeling haha.

Well, basically thai cuisine uses rice on everything (that wasn’t such a weird thing for me since we have rice and beans everyday in Brazil, just not that much!). Seriously, rice all the time and everywhere: breakfast, lunch and dinner; fried, cooked, in the soup; even as a dessert!! And it taste like HEAVEN! Especially the sticky rice with mango (sounds a bit disgusting but you trust me, you will want to try that!).

IMPORTANT!!!

Be careful when they pop the question: ‘ do you want spicyyyy? ’. Do not be fool, that is important, DO NOT BE FOOL by the nice smile on their face, they actually mean to say: ‘SUPER HOT’, ‘LIKE HELL IN YOUR MOUTH’, ‘SPITTING FIRE LIKE A DRAGON’, spyce. Haha, I love spicy food, but it was way too much. Most of the times they asked me if I wanted European spicy or the Thai way, but I didn’t dare the Thai because the European was already burning my taste buds (in a good ‘crying my eyes out’ way).

Pad Thai:

Ok, I can’t even begin to describe how much I LOVED this. I ate it pretty much every day and those days I haven’t, I regretted.

Pad Thai is a delicious option made of rice noodle and beans sprouts with thai spices. Funny enough the lady at the cooking class told me that for Thai people this is the least favorite, on the other hand it is the winner between tourists.

Green Curry:

I made this one myself (yey!) and it was the spiciest food I have ever tried!

It was exquisite and I couldn’t stop eating even though my eyes were watering (ok, not true, I was actually getting dehydratase with all the water coming out of my eyes), my hands sweating and I could feel my face swallow.

Definitely worth the try!

Tom Yum:

This is a super spicy shrimp soup!

Sticky rice with Mango:

Aaaand that is the one! The rice dessert! You can find it as a street food, in the market, anywhere! It was astonishing how good it tasted!

Papaya Salad:

All I can say is that I regret that it took me so long to try this.

And of course, anything cooked in a bamboo in the jungle!!!

As for the street food, I tried all the time and didn’t had a problem, no stomach cake or anything, on the contrary, everything was extremely tasty and cheap as it can be.

What about the insects?!

INSECTS. Everyone who is planning a trip to Asia end up crossing the information about the fried insects. Most of the times, about famous scorpion on a stick. The thing is, the scorpion is a touristic play, they don’t actually eat it there. On the other hand, if you want to taste the real Thai lifestyle experience, try the worms and crickets , that is real! (I even ‘hunt’ crickets on a hiking trip with the guide who was saving it on a jar to take it for dinner fro his wife haha, nice gift right?!)

Be prepare to new experiences and keep an open mind!  I thing the weirdess thing for me was a night on a small village when they hunt and cooked us a CAT soup (this is a history for another time, but no, it was not good)! Anyway, I saw a lot of people refusing to try the food and eating nothing but rice when in a jungle trek, just, don’t be that guy! Haha.

Tip: To enjoy a nice chilling afternoon in the sun, go for Chang!
