Ever since its restrictive immigration laws relaxed in the 70s, Australia has seen a steady increase in immigrants from all global regions - but Southeast Asia has especially contributed to Aussie population growth. That’s why so many delicious Vietnamese, Malaysian, and Thai restaurants have popped up around Melbourne!
As with many incredible ethnic cuisines within the city, the culinary influence Thais have on Melbourne is outsized compared to its actual population. In fact, just within walking distance of the CBD, there are literally a dozen delicious Thai Restaurants in Melbourne worth making regular orders to.
Here are a few secrets of quality Thai food so you can judge the flavor of your dish from the right perspective. Remember, while the dishes revolve around stir fries, soups, and curries, there are numerous variations each Thai restaurant in Melbourne uses!
Thai Stir Fry
Thai stir fry is driven by its delicious tamarind sauce and unique variations. For example pad Thai and pad see ewe have become cultural ambassadors for Thailand – people from San Diego to Australia enjoy a nice bowl of Pad Thai!
Thai soups, like all authentic stews, starts with a strong base: either animal bones boiled for perfect bone broth or quality oils like coconut paired maybe with ginger.
Using fresh ingredients like green spur chilies, and Australia’s world-class meat industry, Thai style curries are simply delectable. The curry pastes mix and flavor your choices of meat, creating a saucy dish that you can lick the plate clean with. When fresh ingredients and the sauces, sugar, salt, and lime are well-balanced, a Thai curry from Melbourne is hard to beat. We highly recommend ordering one to try it out!
Thai menu specials
There is so much variety at these restaurants, you have to check each establishment’s menu to get an idea of the dozens of dishes offered. It can be overwhelming, so try to focus on the three categories above, and simply ask about how their dishes differ. The menus should list ingredients, so order away when ready!
