Additional, No one can argue about the popularity of Thai food today.  From Tokyo to Toronto and all places in between you will find, at the very least, one restaurant serving the increasingly popular fare.  Simply peruse your local bookstore’s cooking section and you’ll find multiple titles dedicated to Thai food.  Why such great interest in the dishes of this small country located at the center of Southeast Asia?  Inside the website http://www.thai-food.in.th/  we will try to explain the phenomenon by bringing you the depth of Thai cuisine.  This includes the regional differences among similar as well as varying dishes.  We hope you will learn the amazing variety that exists from the spicy grilled Laps in the North to the smooth and fiery Gaengs in the South.
