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

To get started some of the base ingredients used in Thai cooking include the following: garlic, coconut milk, vinegar, rice base, rice noodles and more.

The sauces combine savory umami from fish/oyster sauce with a tangy sour flavor from the tamarind. It also gets a sweet boost from granulated brown sugar melted into the jus. This perfect balance of saucy flavor is combined with multiple textures in a Thai dish. You get to pick many of these additions, including choice of noodles, meats, and veggies - as well as unique ingredient twists like diced peanuts!

If not a noodle-based dish, many curries and incredible dinners from Thai restaurants in Northcote use a rice base, stacking on top flavorful sauces (e.g. – soy sauce, fish sauce, oyster sauce), with steamed veggies like carrots and cabbage served to round out the entrée’s flavor profile.

Another defining ingredient of many Thai dishes, including their curries, is coconut oil or milk. If you have gotten sick of olive-oil based dishes it is time to visit one of the delectable Thai restaurants in Northcote. It will refresh your 10,000 taste buds 10,000 times over.

QIKI History: How Thai-Aussies Are Breaking the Chains of Thai Oppression

With groups like the Australian Alliance for Democracy fighting everyday, many Thai-Aussies express a true gratitude for the opportunities afforded in metropolitan cities like Melbourne. Many Thai subsisted under a brutal, monarchical regime in Thailand. Coming here, they may find the ostentatiousness of our politics silly, but they appreciate the freedoms a democratic system affords us in Australia.

Many Thai-Aussies were inspired by the recent uprising against this brutal regime hurting the people of their ancestral homeland. Others supported the royal monarchy, loving the symbolism of decorum it sent to the international community. It is a complex issue, but hopefully just knowing about it can give you a richer, deeper appreciation of the history behind Thai restaurants in Northcote.
