Something about these long, hot summer days has us craving the bright, spicy flavours of Thai cuisine. Picture this: you’re sitting on a tucked away patio with a beer in your hand (perhaps a cold bottle of Singha?) when you get a strong whiff of something delicious coming your way. Your stomach is grumbling and you suddenly realize you’re STARVING, but it’s so hot out that you need something fresh to keep you going.
Pizza won’t do. As delicious as it is, the dough and cheese is simply too heavy for a day like this. Pasta? Same deal. A hearty stew? Forget it!
The answer? Thai cuisine—a complex balance of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy flavours—in the form of a thinly shaved mango salad or grilled meat skewer accompanied by a creamy peanut satay sauce. Sound delicious? Let us know your favourite summer meal at [email protected]!

Sweet, salty, spicy, sour… it’s impossible to use a single word when describing the flavours of Thai cuisine.
With so many dramatic spices and ingredients—from fresh cilantro and torn basil to spicy-sweet galangal and chilies—Thai food is arguably one of the most exciting cuisines to explore in the Tri-Cities. It’s also a cuisine that is perhaps best enjoyed during warm summer months: cold, pickled veggies, fresh produce, and sharp herbs (staples of Thai cuisine) sit perfectly on a heavy, muggy day.
