This dish is PACKED with veggies and protein! The perfect warming dinner with a lovely subtle tongue tingle.
I am relatively new to Thai food having not tried it until 2014. My instant love for the food meant that we booked a two week holiday to Thailand in 2016. This was a fantastic trip from start to finish. We travelled to Bangkok and walked around the busy bustling food stalls and vendors. Then experienced fantastic foods on the PhiPhi islands whilst watching monkeys stealing sugar packets from the cafe. It is such a beautiful country. So developed in some areas and so magically untouched in others. From one day in a high rise looking over Bangkok eating refined dishes, to tucking into an equally delicious food made by a small family business.
I have to say, if you haven't already VISIT THAILAND.
