Spice up your life...
Thai cuisine has come to be known as spicy, but it is only one component of the cuisine along with the three other “s” tastes that coalesce: sweet, sour, and salty. Ingredients that contribute to these tastes include kaffir lime, ginger, cilantro, tamarind, chilies, lemongrass, galangal, mint, tamarind, and Thai basil. If spicy foods aren’t for you, restaurants can generally make most dishes mild upon request. Soups are popular as are rice and noodle dishes, perhaps none more so than Pad Thai. Not so popular: deep-fried insects. Although insects are eaten in Thailand, you’ll be hard-pressed to find any offered on restaurant menus (unless someone was swatting at flies with them).
