Did You Know

  1. Thai people generally order the same number of dishes as there are people present at the table, but this isn’t as a result of greed. Instead, all those present at the table enjoy each of the dishes and sharing between everyone is encouraged and commonplace. A fact a bit more superstitious than you’d find in the west is that many Thai people consider eating alone to be bad luck.

  2. Something you might have heard before is that Thai people tend to each all day long, which generally isn’t true. Three meals a day just like most of the world is normal, but snacking between meals is very common in what is known as “gin len.”

  3. There is nothing baked in Thai cuisine. If you were to stay with a local while visiting Thailand, you’d be hard pressed to find an oven. This means that fried and grilled items are heavily abundant while baked goods are hard to come by and are quite expensive if you do happen to find some.

  4. You probably know someone (or even yourself!) that is daring enough to order Thai Hot, but did you know that almost every Thai dish perfectly blends four seasonings? Salty, sweet, sour, and spicy. In combination with that, a high priority is placed on fresh fruits and veggies which you’ll find in almost every entree or dessert.

  5. One fact that is sure to surprise you is that most Thai people do not prefer to eat with chopsticks. While this is common in regions nearby Thailand, you’ll probably be glad to find forks and spoons readily available.
