Typical Thai food

Thai cuisine shows great appreciation for its culture and demonstrates generosity to its host. Following tradition, dishes begin with a spoonful of rice, followed by a few spoonfuls of each dish, always leaving a little food on the plate. Each bite is different, with a sweet, sour and spicy taste that sets them apart from other countries. In addition, it has direct influences from southern China and has Dutch, Portuguese and Japanese touches.

Today, Thailand’s cuisine is distinguished by its personal approach and is divided into four culinary styles: northern, with milder cooking; northeastern, with spicy food and glutinous rice; central, with jasmine rice as the main ingredient; and southern, with coconut milk and cashew nuts. In addition, Thai curries are identified by their colour, the one with the hottest sauce is green, followed by red, yellow and orange. Other popular curries are Panang and Massaman with Malay and Persian influences.

1. Pad Thai

In the mood for noodles? Pad Thai is a typical national street dish, popularised during World War II due to rice shortages. Its original name is ‘Gway Teow Pad Thai’, composed of the Chinese word ‘Gway Teow’, meaning rice noodles and ‘Pad Thai’, meaning fried and Thai. This dish, as the name suggests, is made from rice noodles with stir-fried eggs and tofu, seasoned with tamarind juice and fish sauce, and also contains dried shrimp, onion, pepper, garlic and palm sugar. It is usually served with bamboo shoots, slices of lime, ruddy banana flowers and a sprinkling of peanuts. Some variations of Pad Thai are served with chicken or pork.

2. Pad See Ew

Unlike Pad Thai… This food is mainly made of dried flat rice noodles, which are flexible, white and shiny, as they are covered with a thin layer of oil. The noodles are cooked with plenty of soy sauce, meat, garlic, tofu, egg and Chinese broccoli. For best results, they are cooked in a hot, seasoned wok, and a high temperature is important to promote the texture of the noodles.

3. Som Tam

The popular green papaya salad! Som Tam is a dish originating from northeastern Thailand. Its name means “to hit the bitter” and it is composed of a fish sauce, with pepper, garlic, tomato, lemon and palm sugar. The salad is complemented with roasted peanuts, green beans and shrimp. The combination of sour, spicy, salty and sweet flavours is ideal for anytime, an impromptu breakfast, a casual lunch or a light dinner.

4. Khao Niao

Khao Niao is a soft, chewy, glutinous rice, widely found in northern Thailand and Laos. It is usually eaten with the hands, kneaded lightly with the fingers and eaten bite by bite. This food accompanies many dishes, from appetizers to desserts, and is certainly an essential accompaniment to meats such as pork. The rice follows a whole preparation process: first it is soaked in water, drained and then steamed in a bamboo basket. When ready, the rice is kept in a covered container to prevent it from drying out.

5. Khao Pad

A good and easy dish to prepare? Khao Pad is a stir-fried rice dish, consisting of eggs, chicken or pork, garlic, onions, soy sauce, pepper, fish sauce, fresh ginger and vegetables. All cooked in a wok over high heat and stir-fried constantly. All the traditional Thai flavours come together to create this distinctive and traditional meal.

6. Ba Mee Kiew

Ba Mee Kiew is the delicious egg noodles made with wonton. What is wonton? It is a Cantonese dumpling stuffed with meat. The dish has two options: noodles with or without broth. In the soup version, the ingredients are mixed together, while in the other version, the ingredients are served in separate dishes.

7. Laab

Laab, the traditional meat salad, seasoned with fresh herbs. It is mostly consumed in Laos and northern Thailand. It is prepared with pork, chicken, fish, duck, beef or buffalo. Spices and seasonings may vary from area to area, but it is usually cooked with coriander, spring onions and an excess of mint.

8. Tom Yum

Want to try a sour and spicy soup? Then your choice is the Tom Yum dish, a Thai soup, with different versions, the best known of which is Tom Yum Goong. It is made with Nam Prik Pao, a base of herb paste and spices: chilli, garlic and shallots. The soup can also contain mushrooms, tomatoes, coriander, sugar, lime juice and fish sauce.

9. Thai tea

Refreshing and strong… Thai tea can be drunk as a dessert and helps to soothe spicy and spicy food. It consists of black tea, contains yellow colouring and an aromatic hint of vanilla. Then, ice is added if you want to make iced tea and finally, milk, which can be whole, coconut, condensed or low-fat. The averages vary between half and half, a quarter of milk or three thirds, depending on the consumer’s taste.

10. Khao Niao Mamuang

The authentic popular Thai dessert is Khao Niao Mamuang. It consists of two basic ingredients: glutinous rice and mango slices. Its sweet and sour combination is balanced with coconut milk to form a smooth and creamy dish. Some variations are served with sweet coconut cream topped with mung beans or sesame seeds.

Typical Japanese food

Japanese cuisine is one of the richest in history and culture. It also features a wide variety of foods ranging from rice, vegetables and meat to the sweetest and most delicious sauces. Ingredients whose combination has given rise to a long list of dishes with many years of tradition that fuse all kinds of textures and flavours.

But are the dishes of yesteryear still the most popular today? Here is a selection of the gastronomic treasures that best represent Japan’s traditional cuisine and are still popular all over the world.


Let’s start with sushi! In the past, the word sushi referred to fish preserved in vinegar, but nowadays this star dish is associated with different ways of presenting rice, which is pre-treated in vinegar and topped with salmon, avocado, tuna, octopus, eel, seaweed or roe.

However, there are an infinite number of sushi options and it can sometimes be difficult to differentiate between them. The secret is in the preparation. So, for example, nigiri is the classic rice ball with the fish ingredient on top, norimaki is a roll of rice wrapped in seaweed and stuffed inside, or temaki, one of the most outstanding, is a cone-shaped seaweed that envelops the rice, vegetables and fish.


Unlike sushi, sashimi consists of seafood, meat and other foods filleted and served raw, but without rice. They are often presented on a bed of vegetables or with other types of fish. The most popular sashimi are tuna, salmon, sea bream, mackerel, bonito, shrimp or squid.

The dish is served with a small bowl of soy sauce and depending on the type of sashimi, wasabi and ginger may be added in small quantities.


Japanese cuisine also takes food from other countries, such as ramen, which originated in China and has become popular in Japan. What does it consist of? It is presented in a bowl and broth is added as a base, noodles and the main ingredient, which can be pork, chicken, beef, fish or vegetables.

Depending on the type of ramen, it will have one base or another. The best known are: shoyu, a broth flavoured with soy sauce; shio, a light broth with salt; the characteristic miso, a thick miso soup made with soybean paste; or tonkotsu, a broth made with pork bones.


Although tempura may seem like a contemporary recipe, its origins date back to the 16th century, when it was introduced to Japan by the Portuguese. It has become a very popular dish and is cooked in many restaurants.

The tempura is a type of batter that uses special tempura flour and is cooked under a special rice oil for better cooking. It is usually battered with prawns, fish, mushrooms, vegetables, etc. and is served as a main dish or with a side of rice.


Udon noodles are thicker than the rest, while soba noodles are white, thin and with a different texture, or yakisoba noodles, which are more similar to noodles and fried. However, udon noodles are made with wheat flour and are prepared for hot or cold dishes, accompanied by tempura, curry broth, vegetable broth and other varieties of seasonings and sauces.

Japanese curry

Japanese curry, introduced in the Meiji era, has a sauce with a thicker texture and sweeter taste than Indian curry, characteristically spicy, but featuring the basic spices. The meat used is usually pork or beef and the ingredients include potatoes, onions and carrots.


Gyoza, originally from China, is cooked boiled or fried in the form of a dumpling. The dough is thin and filled with chopped meat and vegetables. The typical filling consists of pork, chives, green onions, lettuce, ginger, garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil. However, there are also other varieties.


Yakitori are grilled chicken skewers, cooked over charcoal and served with an alcoholic beverage such as beer. It is common to find this dish at food stalls at festivals. The best ones, though, are served in speciality restaurants.

Matcha tea

Green tea is one of the most popular teas in Japan. It is a central element in the tea ceremony, which is prepared in a ritual with the fundamental principles of Zen. Matcha tea, which is a powdered green tea, uses only the best quality leaves, dried and pressed to a fine powder to which hot water is added.


Mochi cake, made with mochigome glutinous rice, is one of the most popular desserts in Japanese culture, served mainly on religious holidays.

It is made slowly by pounding the boiled rice into a thick dough and then rolling it into small circular shapes. Finally, it can be filled with an ingredient such as fruit or ice cream.

In our online shop you will find most of them or ingredients to make and accompany them.
