A hearty chicken or vegetable soup with aromatics like lemongrass, galangal and kaffir lime leaves, served with Jasmine rice
Many countries have a staple dish that defines them—a dish so comforting and familiar to those that grew up with it that it has the ability to transport the eater to another place through its taste and aroma. Tom Yum Soup is that dish for Thailand. It is the popular spicy and sour soup that you can find on virtually any Thai restaurants’ menu.
All of the major aromatics are there—lemongrass, galangal, kaffir lime leaves, Thai bird chilies—and ready to transport you from your kitchen to Thailand.
