Thai Recipe and New Item Update / ImportFood

Hello and Happy Friday.  The big news we can report today is that a lot of things are *really* short in supply right now, mainly staples like coconut milk, jasmine rice, and almost no rice stick noodles available at the wholesale level so if you're local restaurant removes the noodle dishes, you heard it first from us. We are also getting calls from other companies asking to buy everything we have.  We aren't sure what the future holds (what the heck is going on?) but we do have inventory right now for most items so order with confidence.  If ever there was a time to buckle up this seems like it.

OK, so here are newest arrivals and recommendations:

NEW: Lays Thailand Esan Hot Pot

Lays Thailand consistently adds unique flavors to the classic potato chip, often tourists love them and add a few bags to their suitcase because there's no distribution of these flavors outside of Thailand.

Here's our newest arrival -- Esan Hot Pot Flavor.

Ingredients: dried chili, smoked fish, tamarind, garlic, onion, sugar, fish sauce, salt.

Tapioca Starch 

Used to thicken various Asian dishes, we've been using a lot of this lately with so many recipes.

Made from pure tapioca, the general purpose is similar to flour. Tapioca starch is also called tapioca flour.

We have the best from Erawan. Check it out and the recipes you can make with it.
