"Taste of Isan"
Isan, in Thai language, means the Northeast and it can be used in many circumstances. In the culinary world, it refers to the Northeastern Thai cusine.
Isan cuisine is predominantly infused with tjhe traditional salty fermented fish "Pla ra" aka "Pla daek", chili and local herbs. In the past it's considered as a rustic food for the blue collars due to Isan people diaspora. But now, with twists, it's popular and considered as the comfort food among Thais and even for foreigners.
And these are examples of the cusine I've tasted few days ago : grilled chicken, papaya "Somtam" salad, sliced bamboo shoot salad, green herb "Pak Wan" soup with dry fish meat, deep fried preserved "Pla som" fish, duck meat salad, omelet with ant's eggs, and of course dining with steamed plain sticky rice.
I enjoyed these dishes a lot and wanna encourage you all to come visiting Thailanad and try them.
Worth every bites.
