Thai Recipe Update / ImportFood

Hello again and welcome back as the spring weather starts to bring more sunshine.  We have summertime unique Thai classic "Sala Cider" back in stock, Maesri Pla Tu, and much more to share. Many years ago we filmed a Thai Street Vendor Video Series, checkout one of our favorite features on Thai Style Snocones. Our Praram Long Song recipe is perfectly prepared also.  Thanks for visiting!

Thai Street Vendor Snocones

The treats are much more than a simple flavored shaved ice, as there are three layers. First you choose what goes into the lower layer, there is toddy palm, sweet potato candies, sweet pumpkin, foy thong and bread for the lower layer. Then the vendor will top that with shaved iced. On top of the shaved ice will be a flavored syrup such as Hale's Blue Boy.

Back in Stock: Namprik Pla-Tu, Maesri Thailand

This is a hometown favorite "namprik" paste from Maesri brand, who we find makes the finest quality chile pastes. There's nothing like it, a true taste of home for a Thai person. Beware it's strong smelling with a bold flavor.

Mama Brand, Instant Noodles, Thai Green Curry

Mama's relatively new instant noodle is green curry flavor, which is very authentic to green curry taste. It comes with a dry spice packet and a packet of green curry paste.

You put both packets in a bowl with the noodles, add 1 cup of boiling water, cover for three minutes and serve. We also added some fresh Thai basil. This meal has mild spice and delicious.

Thai Rama Chicken, Praram Long Song

This dish dates to the time of King Rama 5, about 140 years ago. Originally it was made with beef, but nowadays pork and chicken are often used. Praram is a name for the God Rama, or King Rama, in The Ramkian. The Ramakian is the Thai version of an Indian Hundu epic written 2000 years ago. Long Song translates as 'take a shower'.
