Thai Shrimp and Glass Noodle Salad

When I was a kid, afterschool time was the most anticipating time of the day. It’s not only because the tiring lessons were over, but it’s time to find something to eat after classes. When the bell rang, we would find several food carts at the school gate. This is a usual scene for most

Thai Cashew Nut Salad

Yum Cashew nuts 13

The weather has been very cool and gloomy. The inside of my house has not received any sunlight for two weeks now. It doesn’t rain that much, but the sky is really dark. Actually, I like this ambience. It seems awfully cozy and mysterious in a way. My mind wanders to a place like the

Thai Cucumber Salad (Isaan Style)

Thai Cucumber Salad 1

In my childhood, during summer vacation in Thailand, I used to work so many random jobs to earn extra cash that I could splurge on Sailor Moon stickers. We weren’t poor, but my parents always encouraged me to work so I could learn something from the experiences. I used to work at a gas station.

Yum Pla Tu

Yum Pla Tu 9

Yum means “mixed” in Thai. It’s a kind of salad that loaded with chilies, fresh herbs, and punchy flavors of lime, sugar and fish sauce. It’s balance, but bold, and out of this world delicious.

Mangoes are still in season, and I intend to savor them as much while I can. I don’t just love mangoes when they are perfectly ripe, sweet and golden, but I also love them when they’re raw and crunchy. They’re perfect for salad. I chop and slice and throw them in the bowl. They are

Whether you are or aren’t a fan of tofu, I want you to give this recipe a try. This warm tofu salad (Well, it’s not quite a typical salad, and we usually make it as snack) has a zingy, robust flavor. Plainly, it’s a deep-fried tofu in a bed of lettuce with a tangy, sweet

Thai Instant Noodle Salad

There were number of times I tried to avoid picking up packages of instant noodle from supermarket. To be honest, it’s one of the unhealthiest food we massively indulged. I have been trying very hard not to think about the steamy strings that felt so wonderful in the mouth, then finally I would have to

Thai Mushroom Chutney

One of my favourite things to do in rainy season was wild mushroom picking. It’s the beautiful effect the moisture has done to the dry earth. Things turn to lives- mayflies were resurrected and roamed the grounds in the evening, bamboo shoots and mushrooms sprouted in the forest. When I was a kid, I would be

Thai Style Sausage with Cabbage Salad

Many late afternoons, Yaseen and I find ourselves craving spicy snacks while watching his favorite cartoons. He loves anything from tortilla chip with spicy homemade salsa, chicken spring rolls, sweet corn fritters or just deep fried sausage dripping in hot and sweet chili sauce. Something we recently become so addicted to lately is a simple
