Thai Food Trivia

Did you know…?

  • Thai people do not need a reason to dine out—good food is at the heart of any social gathering. 
  • Many Thai people believe that eating alone will bring bad luck.
  • There is no such thing as a ‘starter’ in traditional Thai food.
  • All dishes are shared as part of a happy, social meal.
  • Leftovers are never thrown away for fear of enraging Pho Sop, the Thai Rice Goddess who protects the rice crop and ensures everybody has enough to eat. 
  • Thai food is best enjoyed with a blend of salty, sweet, sour and spicy seasonings.
  • In Thailand, Western cutlery is preferred over chopsticks—usually a fork and spoon.
