These dishes also are the favorite for travelers according to TheTravel.com
Gaeng Tai Pla
Fishers in Southern Thailand came up with the idea for this Thai stew as a means to avoid throwing away fish guts or entrails. The outcome? An extremely hot curry with pronounced fish aromas.
This curry is extremely popular in the Thai provinces of Songkla and Pattalung for those who have a taste for spice and seafood and can handle the overpowering smell of fish.
Given that it contains tai pla, a salty sauce produced from fermented fish intestines, this meal may take some getting used to. The dish itself packs a powerful flavor punch, as both the tai pla sauce and the dish itself use a lot of fresh and dry chiles.
This Thai meal has a bit more heat than the well-known Tom Yum. The dish, often referred to as Gaeng Som, is an orange curry cooked with fish meat and shrimp paste, bird's eye chilies, and tamarind sauce.
Khao Pad Nam Prik Pao
After checking out some of Thailand's most beautiful temples, why not grab a quick bite to eat? For spice lovers, they may want to try some khao pad nam prik pao.
Also known as Chili Paste Fried Rice, this Thai dish is quick, easy, and spicy.
The secret ingredient is the addition of Nam Prik Pao, a spicy Thai chili paste. Though spice lovers will get a kick from the dish’s spicy nature, there are also elements of sweetness to it, alongside delicious ingredients like vegetables, and seafood (or meat). T
ry this simply delicious (and spicy) dish from street vendors or restaurants in Thailand.
