Back In Stock: Tom Yum Cubes, from Knorr Thailand
This is a very tasty bouillion cube for making the popular Thai tom yum soup made by premium quality Knorr brand. Difficult to keep in stock, and we only have a small quantity.

Fragrant and delicious. Add a few fresh kaffir lime leaves, Thai chile peppers and a few pieces of dried galanga -- you're on the way to becoming the best chef in town.

24 Boxes (2 cubes per box) $29.50
NEW: All Natural 100% Durian
Durian is expensive in Thailand but we always enjoy buying it fresh especially at peak season. The flavor of durian is often described as rotten because this fruit has a strange unappealing odor, but frankly we just find it a rich healthy delicate fruit with lots of nutritious value.

This new "durian snack" produced by Siam Preserved Food is a fantastic way to enjoy the flavors of durian. It's 100% natural, freeze-dried prime quality durian. Each package is a modern foil resealable pouch, with three individual packages inside.

A lot of fresh durian goes into making each package, and if you like durian or ever wanted to try it for the first time, this is a great way to go.

Ingredients: 100% durian. No aritificial ingredients, no oil, no preservatives, all natural. Product of Thailand. See our video: durian in a Bangkok fresh market.
$8.99 3.5 oz package (3 packages inside)
Back in Stock: Thai-style Fried Chicken Batter, Kruathip
Leave it to the Thais to create the best fried chicken in the world. This batter perfectly coats your chicken (or vegetables, as we made fried mushrooms and onions that turned out excellent). Simply mix this with water and sugar (see mix below). You really can't go wrong, and it's just excellent batter. We fried drumsticks and breast slices, then used world-famous Thai sweet chile sauce as a dip. 17.5 oz is a nice large package so you can make several big batches.

Ingredients: wheat flour, rice flour, corn starch, baking powder, garlic powder, black pepper powder, msg. Packed by Kruathip which sells several top quality batter mixes popular throughout Thailand. Product of Thailand.

Follow these instructions as they yield better results than what is written on the package:
Mix 1.5 cups fried chicken batter with 3/4 cup water, then add 2 teaspoons sugar. Put an inch or so of vegetable oil in a frying pan and heat at medium-high. Fry chicken or vegetables until golden brown, then flip and cook the other side. For chicken, cooking time is about 15 minutes total. Less for vegetables. See our recipe and detailed instructions.
Sriracha Sauce from Shark
Here is our very high quality, and reasonably-priced Shark brand sriracha from Thailand, packed in a nice glass bottle rather than plastic that other manufacturers use. It's as fresh as can be, and tastes wonderful. We now have medium flavor, in addition to "Strong" which is what we've offered for years.

Sriracha was invented in Thailand, and Shark is the premier manufacturer. Shark brand uses all natural ingredients, packed in a nice glass bottle. Shark is far superior to the plastic bottle stuff from LA which includes preservatives and has an unnatural heavy pepper taste.

Medium flavor has the taste of Thai chiles but low heat. Strong offers bold chile heat, somewhat like tabasco, but tangy and a bit sweet too. Use plenty of it. The large glass bottle is a generous amount. All Natural. Ingredients: chile, water, sugar, garlic, salt, vinegar. Product of Thailand.
$3.29, Strong flavor, 7 oz glass bottle
$3.29, Medium flavor, 7 oz glass bottle
Thai Sticky Rice Wood Paddle
When we made our Thai sticky rice street vendor video, some customers commented on the useful wooden paddle used by the chef to separate and knead the rice. We've imported some of these from Thailand, and we're pleasantly surprised at the nice size and overall quality of it.

The paddle can be used for all sorts of mixing of ingredients, and for those who just like to have a wood paddle around.

It's 16" long, handle has 7/8" diameter, and the paddle is 2.5" wide. Product of Thailand.
Fresh Lemongrass / The Cancer Fighting Plant

In 2006 researchers at Ben Gurion University in Israel discovered that the lemon aroma in lemongrass kills cancer cells while leaving healthy cells unharmed. The findings were published in the scientific journal Planta Medica, which highlights research on alternative and herbal remedies. The best reported way to consume it for the purpose of staying healthy? Lemongrass tea. It couldn't be easier!

We've just received a shipment of beautiful fresh lemongrass, with big thick stalks which is ideal. Our fresh lemongrass information page includes a long list of Thai recipes, and a photo report on how to make fresh lemongrass tea.
