Sawadee ka! Do you love Thai food as much as I do? Tom yam soup is a must whenever I dine at any Thai restaurant.

The other dishes are tom yam seafood clear soup, green curry chicken, tropical fruit curry, thai basil minced chicken, spicy prawns with petai, omelette with prawns and stir fried kalian with garlic.

Tom Yam Seafood Clear Soup

Can’t get enough of their tom yam seafood clear soup, I can taste the natural sweetness of the seafood and also the aroma of the tom yam. It’s not too spicy, salty and not loaded with msg as I don’t feel thirsty after the meal.

Thai Basil Minced Chicken

The thai basil minced chicken is one of my favourite too because thai basil is always good in any dishes. Be warned this dish is indeed spicy with cili padi, black pepper and herbs.

Spicy Prawns with Petai

The Jasmine Sunwhite Fragrant Rice is perfect for Thai Fried Rice. If you look closer at the grain of the Jasmine Sunwhite is slight bigger and rounder than the Super 5. When it’s cooked the texture is soft, fluffy and smooth with the fragrant that will arouse our appetite.

Even without the dishes, the plain fried rice using Jasmine Sunwhite taste good on its own. The rice texture remains individual by itself, in another word it’s not broken. It’s firm on the outside and fluffy on the inside but not mushy or sticky or dry. Therefore you will not feel full that fast. When chewed the rice together with the dishes, the moderate starchiness of the rice with blend in with the dishes perfectly.

Where else, the fried rice with Jasmine Super 5 White Rice is like the normal fried rice that we usually have. The texture is slightly harder and less fluffy compared to Jasmine Sunwhite Rice. It tastes not bad as well.

Back to basics, a bowl of steamed plain Jasmine Fragrant Rice is the perfect to go with any Thai dishes especially the sour and spicy tom yam soup. So appetizing, onbe more bowl of rice please.
