Thai food : Thai food is popular almost everywhere in the world. The kind of meat can be chosen among seafood, chicken, pork or beef. The famous Thai dishes are-
-> Pad thai- pan fried rice noodles with fish sauce, sugar, lime juice, chopped peanuts, seafood, egg combined with chicken and tofu.
-> Pad see ew- Fermented sausages with fried rice.
-> Rad na- Rice noodles, pork, chicken, shrimp, cooked in spicy gravy.
-> Khanom Chin Namya- boiled round rice noodles eaten with a host of curry sauces, fresh vegetables and leaves.
-> Pad kee mao- stir fried noodles with Thai basil.
-> Saltshakers are rarely found on Thai dinner tables, so add a little caramel-color fish-sauce (called nam-pla in Thai) instead, if you find your food not salty enough.
-> Beckon waiters with a wave of a hand. Don’t clap, snap fingers or hiss.
-> Most Thai food is already cut into small pieces before serving or made soft enough to be cut with spoon or fork;’ thus, a knife is unnecessary.
-> Normally, a tip of 10-20 Baht or 5-10% of the bill should be left when dining in a middle or high-class restaurant.
-> English is spoken in large restaurants in tourist provinces; and most establishments have menus in Thai and English, except street-side food stalls and some small restaurant.
