Thai cuisine! This national cuisine of Thailand is known for its spiciness. Blending elements of several Southeast Asian traditions, Thai cooking places emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components. Sour, sweet, salty, and bitter; these are the four fundamental taste senses that are prevalent in every Thai dish served. A wide variety of herbs, spices and leaves that are rarely found in any part of the world are used while cooking a Thai dish.
A certain chef had once said about Thai cooking, “Thai food ain’t about simplicity. It’s about the juggling of disparate elements to create a harmonious finish. … it’s a jumble of flavours, but to a Thai that’s important, it’s the complexity they delight in.” Wanna taste these deliciously jumbled flavours? Thai Pavilion – Vivanta by Taj, Mumbai is close. It is awarded as the best Thai restaurant in India. No points for guessing! You get the best and authentic Thai dishes here.
If you are not much of a person in love with spicy dishes that Thai cuisine is infamous for, you might try the Som Tam (young papaya salad combined with sweet and spicy sauce) or the pan-grilled scallops with orange and rice wine reduction or even the Thai Spring rolls. However for the lovers of robust flavours, who can forget the Thai Red Curry! Served in variations of veggie, chicken and seafood, the Thai Curry is served with steamed rice. That makes a hot and spicy combo!
