There’s one dish that never fails to please – it has all the elements of being zesty and tangy – sharp flavoured with a mix of sourness, saltiness and spiciness. I am talking about “Tom Yum”.
Tom yum is a Thai dish. It is the boiling process (“tom”) of a sourish and spicy salad (“yum”). It sounds a bit strange and foreign to those who are not familiar with Thai food. But, not for me. I love Thai food. It is one of my favourite cuisines.
