Thai Cuisine is known for its five basic flavors: spicy, sour, sweet, salty, and bitter. Thai food is normally considered as one type of cuisine. However Thai cuisine can be broken down into four regional cuisines: Northern, Northeastern, Central, and Southern. Each region has its own unique style and flavors.
Overall, Thai cuisine has heavy influences from Chinese stir-fries and Indian curries. Although the influences are there, Thai cuisine differentiates itself from its influences by the heavy use of herbs, spices, and fish sauce.
Generally, a full Thai meal consists of either a single dish or rice with many side dishes. Rice is the main staple of Thai cuisine. Stir Fries and curries are usually poured on top of the rice. Noodles are also very popular in Thai cuisine. Noodle dishes are usually served as a single dish.
Chopsticks are rarely used while eating Thai food. Thai people are more comfortable with a fork in their left hand to shovel food onto the spoon in their right hand.
