Q. What should I order if I'm new to Thai food?
Thai food can be a lot to take in if you're not familiar with Asian cuisine. The most common and popular Thai dish globally is the Pad Thai, with an interesting military history.
Q. Should I order Thai Iced Tea with my meal?
Well, it depends. If you're ordering an especially spicy meal, you may want to take advantage of the milk in the Thai Iced Tea to help cool you down. Or if you just like a sweet beverage with your meal.
Q. Is all Thai food spicy?
Of course not. Thai cuisine, like any other cuisine, varies as you move from region to region. It gets spicier as you move south and milder as you head north. Generally speaking, hot climates are a source of spicy cuisines because chili helps keep your body cool through perspiration.
Q. What is the spiciest Thai dish I can order?
Thai red curry is known as the spiciest of the Thai curries, but you should know that the level of spice in a dish is obviously up to you. It's just that some dishes are more commonly served on the spicier side than others. For instance, the yellow curry is often the least spicy. There is no rule that says it has to be, and you can make it as spicy as you like it.
Our spicy levels are as follows:
- Level 0 - NOT Spicy
- Level 1 - Mild (just a kick)
- Level 2 - Medium
- Level 3 - Hot
- Level 4 - Very Hot
- Level 5 - Insanely Hot (you're on your own!)
Most of us live between levels 1 and 3. For those who like to live on either edge, we got you too!
