More vitamins, and more enzymes which make you feel younger. Enjoy the highest quality Thai mungbeans. See how to make these beans turn into fresh sprouts on your countertop.
Thai Red Cargo Rice
We've been selling a lot of red cargo rice lately. Commonly served in both Thai and Vietnamese meals. Along with the recent explosion of Thai restaurants focusing on Street Vendor style food, restaurants often serve steamed rice that has 10-20% red cargo mixed in, to give it a rustic "wild rice" appearance.
New Shipment: Mama Kee Mao, Fresh Stock
Mama makes a wide variety of popular instant noodles such as namtok and classic tom yum shrimp.
Mama kee mao is unique because you eat it 'haeng' (dry, not as a soup). The noodles are thicker than traditional Mama noodles, and wavy.
Our best selling Mama noodles and this is brand new stock.
Palad Kik: Lucky Charm of Thai Vendors
Look around a Thai street vendor's cart, and you're likely to see a one of these. The palad kik is believed to help bring in more sales, more customers, and entice others to find you attractive.
Non-Thais might think the small wood carving is a type of erotic art, and feel embarrassed to see this sitting in a business, but in Thailand it's simply a portable charm that helps bring in sales.
