Thai Food and Culture

Superstitions surrounding Thai Food

In Thailand, meals are traditionally eaten in a group setting. Unlike America, Thais believe it is bad luck to eat alone. Discard foods can irritate the "god of rice" Thai, a female deity who watches people, ensuring everyone has enough to eat. Bad luck or even starvation may occur if uneaten food or will be wasted unnecessarily.

A typical Thai meal

In Thailand, a typical meal would consist of:
One or two curry dishes, like green curry, yellow or red. A plate of pasta, such as noodles Pad Thai. These delicious rice noodles can be made with tofu, chicken or shrimp.

A fried vegetable dish made with just one or a variety of fresh local vegetables.

With every meal, Thai jasmine rice flavor is served on the side. Dessert can consist of something as simple as fresh fruits like pineapple or papaya. For a drink, most Thais enjoy your meal with a cold beer or a cold drink as lime water or Thai iced tea.

Thais like to eat?

You've probably noticed that most Thai restaurants provide chopsticks for their clients. Thai cutlery usually consists of a fork and a large spoon (spoon). The spoon is held in the right hand and used (instead of a knife) to cut meat and to collect food (instead of a cylinder head).
When you eat, most Americans carry their dishes with different types of food, like a buffet table. However, the Thai not combine various foods on their plate, but the taste of a dish at a time, always eaten with plenty of Thai jasmine rice aroma on the side. Finally, just for fun, encourage your family or guests to eat as the Thais do, sampling a dish at a time and eat with a spoon and fork. Above all, take time to enjoy your good health, your friends and family, and last but not least, the wonderful Thai food on your plate.
