The Thai cuisine is reason enough for people from every corner of the globe to gather in Thailand's capital. Although Bangkok has more to offer than its Thai restaurants, the accolade of being a foodie paradise of Asian delights is well-deserved.
The gentle heat of creamy green curry with the fragrance of coconut milk, moreish satay sticks with peanut sauce, spicy sour soups, tasty Thai fish cakes, meaty morsels of grilled Issan sausage from Thailand's northeast and rich noodle broths. Thai food is a never-ending food lovers' adventure. There is something about the ginger, lemongrass, soy and chilli that gives Thai cuisine its incredible, unique taste that seems to change with every bite. Each mouthful offers layers of flavours so complex, individual and powerful that the subtle balance created in every dish is nothing short of a culinary miracle. Not surprisingly many of Bangkok's Thai restaurants are astounding and for those who travel far and wide to eat real Thai food, in a real Thai restaurant, in the real Thailand, the journey is well worthwhile.
