Discover Thai Cuisine

Everybody who has been there can testify to the fact that Thai gastronomy is one of the best cuisines in the world. This isn't just the case in restaurants, but also with the countless street vendors. Many dishes have a base of rice or noodles, like Pad Thai, and many dishes are a must-try, like the coconut milk curries and Chinese noodle soups. Thai cuisine incorporates many spices, ranging from mild, such as coriander and lemongrass, to especially hot!
