Have you ever tasted Thai Food before? I'm sure that many of you've tried and love Thai Food so much. I love Thai Food the most and always miss Thai Food when I go aboard. Thai food has become popular all over the world due to its unique taste.
I'm so proud that CNNGo has now named THAI MASSAMAN CURRY as the world’s most delicious food, last week. Moreover other 3 Thai dishes are on the list, CNN World’s 50 most delicious foods.
“TOM YUM GOONG” coming in at #8, “NARM TOK MOO” (literally ‘Waterfall Pork’), a favorite of yours truly, at #19 and SOM TUM , aka. Papaya Pok-Pok (onomatopoeic name for the sound of a pestle beating up on the mortar) at #46.
#1. Massaman curry, ThailandEmphatically the king of curries, and perhaps the king of all foods. Spicy, coconutty, sweet and savory, its combination of flavors has more personality than a Thai election.
Even the packet sauce you buy from the supermarket can make the most delinquent of cooks look like a Michelin potential. Thankfully, someone invented rice, with which diners can mop up the last drizzles of curry sauce.
“The Land of Smiles” isn’t just a marketing catch-line. It’s a result of being born in a land where the world’s most delicious food is sold on nearly every street corner.

#8. Tom yum goong, ThailandThis Thai masterpiece teems with shrimp, mushrooms, tomatoes, lemongrass, galangal and kaffir lime leaves. Usually loaded with coconut milk and cream, the hearty soup unifies a host of favorite Thai tastes: sour, salty, spicy and sweet. Best of all is the price: cheap.

#19. Nam tok moo, ThailandGrilled pork combined with lemon juice, green onions, chili, mint sprigs, fish sauce and toasted rice. Legend has it the blood from the meat along with the dressing inspired some happy carnivore to name this brilliant dish “waterfall (nam tok moo) meat.”

#46. Som tam, Thailand
To prepare Thailand’s most famous salad, pound garlic and chilies with a mortar and pestle. Toss in tamarind juice, fish sauce, peanuts, dried shrimp, tomatoes, lime juice, sugar cane paste, string beans and a handful of grated green papaya.
Grab a side of sticky rice. Variations include those made with crab (som tam boo) and fermented fish sauce (som tam plah lah), but none matches the flavor and simple beauty of the original.
