Tom Yum is maybe one of Thailand’s most famous dishes for foreigners. It is a spicy soup, usually served with shrimps in it. Its main flavours consist of lemongrass, keffir lime leaves, galangal, tiny green chilies, and onions. It also usually has mushrooms and tomatoes in it. It’s not actually too difficult to make a decent tom yum at home, although there is something so nice about not having to cook for yourself. This was pretty expensive for me as far as my meals in Thailand go (not to mention my budget– it was 110 Baht, which is pretty pricey for me, actually), but when I ordered tom yum the other night, I was quite pleased to find the cook had not skimped on the shrimps, as I love a good shrimp about as much as I love a good tom yum!
