Thailand Day 7

Red and Green Curries

My friends Andrew and Muchi and their co-workers are usually quite in a hurry during workdays and rely on a quick and simple lunch. Once again, we went to B Resto which is just around the corner from their office and we tried a red curry with chicken and a green curry with pork.

While the green curry is prepared with different kinds of thai eggplants and kaffir lime leaves, the red curry came with thinly sliced bamboo shoots.

One particularly interesting thing about thai food is, that you're going through a whole range of different flavors with just one bite. It's certainly spicy, but also a bit sweet (not too sweet like in california), a bit sour, a bit salty, a bit bitter. Something that has to be experienced.

Check out a recipe for green curry with chicken here, and scroll down.
