Bangkok Fried Rice

This Bangkok Fried Rice is a riff on Chinese stir fry with lots of bold, fresh flavors.

Four Flavors of Thai Food

In Thailand, on every table you’ll find a little caddy with condiments, that will almost always include vinegar, sugar, fish sauce and red pepper. Those are the four flavors of Thailand! These elements are included in almost every dish but you get to add a little more to each dish to make it to your liking.

Sweet- you’ll find a pinch of sugar in lots of savory dishes to help bring out the flavors. Some dishes are sweeter than others but you can add a little more if you like!

Sour- In the US, you often don’t find many sour flavors, maybe a pickle or something but it’s a much more important flavor especially in Southeast Asian cuisine. You’ll find vinegar on almost every table and I find myself craving sour flavors more now! 

Salty- Fish sauce is where you’ll get the salty flavor in Thailand! It’s certainly a strong condiment and little bit goes a long way!

Spicy- Probably the most famous of the Thai flavors! Spicy food is real and real strong in Thailand! I love spicy food but even they have spices I can’t handle. These red flakes, different from the ones we are familiar with often come with pizza, are much more potent and have a slightly different flavor. I sprinkle just a touch of these on my food!
