Tasty Thai Food

Tasty Thai Food - Spicy, Salty, and Sour

Food is like a drug. How true is that? This is especially true for me when it comes to Thai food. Once I get started on any Thai dish, I get addicted to more of the same. But hey, there has to be worse addictions that good food right? Some culinary writers describe Thai food as being similar to Chinese food but with a sting. Well, as someone who has lived in Thailand for a number of years now, I think the aromatic, delicious, hot, spicy Thai food is in a class of it’s own, and there is nothing to compare it’s uniqueness with.

Another fascinating fact with Thai food is the variety. If I lived here for a 100 years and tried a different dish everyday day, I don’t believe I would have time to sample it all. The county is split into 5 regions; North, Northeast, East, Central, and South and each region, province, and sub province, all have their own unique dishes and foodstuffs.

Thai food should not just be categorised as being hot and spicy though, as there are many herbs and spices which are also combined to give the individual dishes their distinctive tastes and aromas.

Ever heard of Thai food described using the 3 S’s of flavor? Spicy, Salty, and Sour. It’s the harmonious blend of these 3 that contribute to this gorgeous gastronomy. Let me break this down a little for you.

Spicy Chili (Prik)

There’s a whole history on how the chili became a part of Thai cooking and I’ll save that for another article, but basically the Europeans, (Spanish or Portuguese) introduced the Chili into the old Siam in the 16th century, and it’s been and integral part of Thai cooking ever since. People who try Thai food for the first time should do so with extreme caution, as there are some dishes that burn your throat so hard that it’s painful to the inexperienced pallet.

Fish Sauce - Salty

Fish sauce is simply called "Nam pla” which when translated means water fish. In Thai cooking this us the second most important ingredient. Fish sauce is made by brewing fish or shrimp mixed with salt and decanting the fermented result into bottles. On its own it smells quite unpleasant but when added to the cooking or sprinkled over rice, it really does contribute to the exotic flavors of Thai food.

Lime - Sour

The lime known in Thai language as "Manao”, is used at every opportunity in a whole variety of Thai dishes. The main role of the lime is to repress the salty taste and strong odor of fish sauce.

Thai restaurant and thai food in the day is Siam.

Siam is thai restaurant and is one of Regina's best Asian Eataries - by Dave Margoshes

If the people running Regina's newest Thai restaurant seems just a tad smug, perhaps they can be indulged.Their place is called SIAM, the old name for Thailand, and the menu declares it an "authentic Thai restaurant." It also boasts, “ They serve real Thai food." To understand that, even the last four digits of the phone number (352-8424) spell out T-H-A-I. There's plenty of Thai food in Regina already - but mostly in Vietnamese restaurants. Even two places with seemingly strong Thai credentials, Viet-Thai and the Thai Garden, have Vietnamese owners. But Siritorn Srisodsai, a pleasant woman called Youi, and her family, the people running Siam, are from Thailand and Siam is the real deal.

The little hole-in-the-wall space on Hamilton Street, just around the corner from Victoria Avenue, housing Siam has been through a number of restaurants - all Asian - in recent years. Just in recent memory it was a Chinese noodle shop, a Vietnamese pho shop, and a Thai restaurant with brilliant, if somewhat rough-around-the edges, food but a lack of business acumen that led to an early demise. Now it's morphed from the generically titled Asian Cuisine into the more assertive Siam, and let's hopes it hangs around longer than its predecessors.

And Thai restaurant Siam does the buffet very well indeed. In fact, while the range is narrow (there are only eight dishes), this is one of the best Asian buffets in town, and probably the best weekday buffet of any sort of downtown. Buffet food is already prepared, of course, so you can't ask for spices to be moderated. No worry. All the dishes I've tried have definite personality - they make an impression but they're not unbearably hot. The kitchen makes excellent use of flavorings like garlic, chilies, lime, tamarind, coconut, fresh mint and cilantro , all of them are thai herb suitable for cook thai food and make good health.

They are many kind of thai food: like this in below and much more, you can see in Thai restaurant and thai food siam.
