What defines traditional Thai food? The first thing is that people in Thailand are great rice eaters. That is the reason why rice is prepared variously (there are no less than fifteen recipes of its preparation) and it is the major ingredient of some other dishes. The second point is that the Thai cuisine masterfully blends four major tastes (salt, sweet, sour and bitter) into an abundance of unique varieties. The uniqueness of taste and flavor also comes from the use of a great deal of special herbs and vegetables. However, the taste of the Thai food depends on who cooks it and where it is cooked. Thus, it is necessary first to make sure of the authenticity, which this or that Thai restaurant offers, before going to it.
One of the most famous Thai restaurants is the Washington Thai garden restaurant. The Thai garden restaurant's menu includes more than sixty authentic options. The list of rice dishes is especially interesting. We have already mentioned that rice is the major ingredient of the Thai food, in other words, Thailand locals eat everything with rice. Hence, the Thai garden restaurant in Washington provides fifteen rice dishes, containing rice East/West, Thai Fried, Yang Chow Fried, Curry Fried, Thai Gard on Special Noodles, Pad Thai, Seafood Crisp, Pad Slew and the others.
Another authentic Thai garden restaurant is situated in Richmond (according to its visitors' reviews). The restaurant has been a favorite of families for eight years and presents both: the best in food and in service. You can comfortably dine in, however; the delivery service is also available. The peculiar feature of the Thai garden restaurant in Richmond is that along with the traditional vegan cuisine, a vegetarian menu is also available in the same generous variety. The restaurant boasts in an exceptionally fast service and Gift Certificates.
Let us observe what a Thai house restaurant is. Although there are many Thai house restaurants in Europe, our choice for description will be the national Thai house restaurant in Thailand, particularly in Nyack.
The Thai cuisine is rich in tastes, flavors and colors. Its palette mixes the shades of red, yellow and green; its tastes range from pepper burn to menthol coldness; its herbal essences unite both, sweet and sharp. The Thai cuisine is the taste of juxtaposition, not going under such adjective description as magnificent, wonderful or excellent. Certainly, people really use these words to describe, but the essence of the Thai cuisine is beyond any description.
The Thai house restaurant in Nyack masterfully uses the degrees of the color palette to identify each dish. For instance, green indicates pleasurable coolness, as in the dish, called Gang Keow Whan, a preparation of green curry of shrimps and mixed vegetables. You will well recognize the harmonic accordance of the color and taste in each Thai dish, when visiting Thailand (this country is worth visiting only for the sake of its cuisine) and you will be surprised enormously.
P.S. The best Thai house restaurant in Great Britain is the Thai house restaurant, located in Quonset, Wales. It has been awarded the Les Routiers Restaurant of the Year 2005 Award for Wales and the Marches.
