When evaluating the authenticity of a foreign cuisine restaurant, one of the simplest methods is to consider the ingredients they use.
The choice of ingredients in food preparation is as critical as the chef’s culinary expertise. We understand that, regardless of a chef’s talent, true authenticity can only be delivered when the ingredients align with those used in Thailand, ensuring our patrons an authentic Thai culinary experience.
The first thing to examine upon entering a restaurant should be the menu. In this context, a menu featuring traditional Thai dishes like Pad Thai, Tom Yum, Larb, green curry, and mango sticky rice indicates the restaurant’s food quality since people can easily discern the authenticity and taste.
For a restaurant, achieving high food quality is of utmost importance. When skilled chefs prepare fine ingredients, the dishes presented should be on par with those served in Thailand. We are firm believers in this principle and as such, we meticulously select the ingredients we use. We have invested time and effort in research and repeated tastings to ensure the consistent quality of our food.
In Thai cuisine, herbs and spices are vital in enhancing the dishes’ flavour and health benefits. Like their neighbouring countries, Thailand is renowned for its extensive use of diverse herbs and spices such as galangal, lemongrass, peppermint leaves, and others, readily available even in street food.
Thai culinary tradition also thrives on the art of blending flavours, seeking a harmonious balance. This practice consistently delivers a delightful combination of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy in each dish. While it may sound unconventional, you’ll find yourself captivated by the intricate perfection of these various flavours after a single taste.
We use ingredients like the Thais do to cook authentic Thai food. The herbs and spices play an important role in bringing out the unique aroma of Thai dishes. Hence, we consistently keep a supply of Thai herbs and spices to guarantee the utmost authenticity in our final creations.
Cooking authentic Thai food can be challenging, as Thai dishes are about balance and precision. It necessitates meticulous attention to the exact quantity of each ingredient to prevent one flavour from overwhelming the others while allowing the distinctiveness of each component to shine through.
Worry not, as our chefs have trained with seasoned Thai culinary experts, meticulously adhering to their techniques as they prepare each delectable dish for your enjoyment.
