Anyone who loves fried chicken and Thai flavors will love this dish. It’s a Thai-seasoned version of wings, coated with a sweet-and-sour sauce after being fried to a crisp.
This chicken wing recipe is pretty awesome. It’s finger food for sure, and has the perfect sweet, sour, and spicy flavors you would expect in Thai cuisine, along with a bit of crunch of the fried onions.
Num Tok Nue (Salad)
Grilled beef, mint leaves, cilantro, tomato, green onion, shallots
roasted ground rice with spicy Thai dressing.
There are plenty of wonderful dishes you could choose, but nam tok neu (น้ำตกเนื้อ), which in Thai translates to waterfall beef or beef waterfall, or grilled beef salad, is one of the most delicious options.
Nam tok neu (น้ำตกเนื้อ) is very similar to Thai laab (ลาบ) – the minced meat Isaan salad – but instead of using minced meat, grilled steak is the main ingredient.
But why is it called waterfall beef?
Nam tok (น้ำตก) is the Thai word for waterfall, and neau (เนื้อ) means beef. Together the literal translation is Thai waterfall beef, or beef waterfall.
In reality, it’s just a name. Like a hot dog.
But just like a hot dog, that were brought from Germany as dachshund sausages, and later called hot dogs in the United States, so there’s also a legend and story that some believe is behind the name of Thai waterfall beef salad.
The beef in this recipe is first marinated and then it is grilled over hot charcoal.
As the recipe and story goes, once the beef begins to hiss from the sizzling juices, the beef should then be removed from the grill, and it’s ready to be sliced and prepared into the salad. The waterfall sizzling sound is how you know the beef is cooked and ready to be eaten.
Myth or fact, I’m not sure, but I think it’s a pretty cool explanation!
Steam Squid Spicy Lime Sauce (Salad)
Steamed squid with broccoli, carrot in chili garlic lime
juice topped with cilantro.
Pla Muk Neung Manao (Steam Squid Spicy Lime Sauce) is a zesty and spicy dish that consists of fresh steamed squid served with a hot and sour dressing. This is a really simple snack or meal that you can make from scratch in under 20 minutes. It tastes great, light, and is very healthy!
Papaya Salad (Salad) BEST SELLER!
Shredded papaya, green beans, tomatoes, peanuts, garlic and Thai chili.
There are different kinds of Papaya Salad in Thailand, but the most basic and popular one is the Green Papaya Salad.
What does green papaya salad taste like?
It is fresh, crunchy, a little tart with an air of sweetness.
You will never have a bad Thai green papaya salad. Some papaya salads are a little too keen on chili. The variation with shrimp and peanuts (Som Tum Thai) is especially good.
Usually the added shrimp is dried which can be overpowering in some dishes but in green papaya salad there’s very little shrimp taste. The dried shrimp are more for texture or meat than anything like flavor. Though do watch out for restaurant near the sea which may serve the salad with shrimp paste which most definitely is strong in flavor.
Is green papaya salad a good vegetarian meal in Thailand?
Yes! Just be sure that you asked for it without meat. Shrimp or crab is often added but it tastes equally good without meat. The peanuts help in this regard and add a wonderful texture to the dish.
In either case it’s not an expensive dish so for any budget and is surprisingly filling!
