Thai is probably one of the most popular international cuisines, mainly for its fusion of exotic flavors that coexist in almost every dish. Sweet, sour, salty, bitter and spicy are all essential ingredients for every Thai dish. However, the final result is lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components and a spicy aftertaste.
