Thai is an interesting mix of cuisine that can be popular with anyone who likes Asian food and even with those who don’t. Thai food has a very distinct taste and style which can be recognized immediately and most areas are more than happy to tell you what they put into each of their meals and to make allowances for you if you have allergies that may otherwise interfere with your meal. Additionally, trying Thai food is a very good idea if you happen to be eating with a vegetarian or if you happen to be a vegetarian eating with someone who is not because there are many options readily available for both eating types and most restaurants include a vegetarian section in their menu from the beginning.
If you happen to like tofu or if you want to give tofu a try because your vegetarian or vegan friend, or maybe someone who just happens to enjoy the soy product, managed to convince you to then you should probably try it out first at a nice Thai food restaurant because Thai cuisine usually includes recipes where they use tofu. Generally, they also know how to cook the tofu well so that you are provided with a really nice first experience with it. Bad tofu is just terrible and will not make you want to try it ever again but if you have Thai tofu then you are more than likely going to enjoy it, regardless of whether or not you’re a vegetarian or a vegan.
While Thai food may remind some people of Chinese cuisine it is simply due to some of the similarities in how they prepare meals and also in what it is that they use to cook those meals. Like many other Asian restaurants, Thai uses a lot of vegetables, meat, rice, noodles, and their own brand of flavor to really make it stand out from all of the other countries that bring their food to be states to be tasted. Additionally, if you can find it, there are several Thai restaurants that serve really delicious tea and you should always be sure to try a cup of it as they do have very different tastes in tea when compared to other Asian countries.
