Fresh Tom Yum Kit via USPS PriorityAdd to cart1 kit - $25.95
At most morning markets in Thailand, and even in local neighborhood 7-11 shops, a "Tom Yum Kit" is sold containing a handful of lemongrass, galangal, chiles, lime leaves, and if you're lucky a lime or two. Sold in a plastic bag, ready to take home and cook up your own tom yum soup.
Here we have a nice variety of excellent quality fresh Thai herbs shipped to you via 2-3 Day Priority for a really great price. It's not too common that in the middle of winter we have such an abundance of great quality fresh tom yum ingredients.
You get 8 stalks of fresh lemongrass, a handful of fresh red Thai chiles (about 6 oz), a handful of fresh lime leaves (at least 1 oz, about 40 leaves), a small chunk of fresh galangal (4-6 oz), and three fresh limes. We will usually have either green or a mix of red/green Thai chiles, not all red.
All for $25.95 and that includes Priority shipping. You can't find a better deal anywhere.
See our video from a "railroad chef" for a nice short tutorial on how to make fresh, extremely tasty tom yum in minutes using these essential ingredients.
Suggest you add a Yellow Label Tom Yum as well.

Thai Prawn Soup with Lemongrass, 'Tom Yum Goong'
Tom Yum is both hot and sour, and it's one of the main signature dishes that defines Thai flavor. We've perfected this recipe and assure you it tastes great.
Typically a chef will use a pork or chicken stock then add the basic fresh staples to create the tom yum, as in our video: Railroad Chef Prepares Tom Yum. We like to start with a simple vegetable broth instead, so our recipe starts with the broth instructions then continues with how to make the tom yum.
It's important to use "prik pao" in your tom yum and we have several brands, with slightly varying tastes depending on your preference.
