Posts Tagged ‘Tilapia’
Thai cuisine is considered among the world’s most delicious, with a unique blend of particular tastes: spicy, sour, sweet, and always highlighted with citrus either a lemongrass or lime.
In our recent trip to Bangkok, I tasted one of the best and savoury grilled Tilapia (sometimes known as St. Peter’s fish) dipped into a sweet and spicy vinaigrette.
And there is Pad Thai, the country’s famous rice noodle mix with eggs, fresh shrimp, shallots, salted radish, tofu, bean sprouts, fresh chives, sugar, roasted peanut, tamarind sauce, chili pepper and other spices. It is a complete meal that would surely appease your appetite.
The Chicken satay is another wonder. Satay is originally an Indonesian dish. A special blend of coriander seed, cumin seed, chopped garlic, grated ginger, fish sauce, curry powder, turmeric powder, coconut milk, palm sugar and of course a juicy skinned, boned and bite size cut chicken breast grilled into perfection.
You can easily find these food anywhere in Bangkok, in streets, restaurants, and hotels. Also, there are lots of pastries, salads, and fruit concoctions around the corners while my favorite is the fresh Dalandan juice in bottle sold for only 20 baht. Truly refreshing!
So if you visit Thailand, make sure you go out at 4 pm onwards to make time for a food galore around downtown Bangkok. (Story by Mini A. / Photos by Trends and Spots)
