  • Tom Yam Soup

    This is, without doubt, the most famous dish of Thailand. This spicy sweet and sour seafood soup with a unique taste, and the main business card of Thai cuisine. Try it definitely, and better than once since in different cafes/restaurants its taste is very different, and not always it is very good. And keep in mind that Tom Yam is done without the noodles, and noodle is just a cheap substitute of the bags. Be careful when eating, as it is very sharp (actually, the sharpest in the world) and ask to cook for you is not very sharp.

    The cost of the Tom Yam soup in cafes and restaurants – from 80 baht (about 168.85 RUB, see Thai currency and the exchange rate).
