QIKI Cuisine Check: How to Pick the Perfect Thai Restaurant in Carlton for You

Base Flavors

If you are new to Thai food, or if you have never quite understood what made it stand out from other Asian cuisine, check out its base ingredients below:

Galangal – like ginger, but ginger cannot substitute for its flavor. Unique to Thai cooking

Fish Sauce – used like salt for flavoring in Thai dishes.

Oyster Sauce – used in stir fries and tastes like a mix between soy and BBQ sauce

Coconut Milk – The base for Thai curries; gives a thick and creamy counter to the tomato base

Tamarind – this is the “tangy” part of Thai food.

Usually served over a bed of rice or with cooked noodles, Thai dishes combine these amazing and unique flavors to create food with layers of flavor. When looking at different Thai restaurants in Carlton, see if you recognize any of these base flavors. By knowing the actual ingredients that go into your order, you can make sure you pick the perfect Thai restaurant in Carlton for you!
