Cebu Thai Restaurants & Cuisine

What is Thai food like, if you ask? Certainly, food resonates the people, its culture, values, attitudes, ingenuity, environment and such realities.

For Thai people, their food means "intricacy, attention to details, texture, color, taste, and theuse of ingredients with medicinal benefits, as well as good flavor" (The Principles of Thai Cookery, McDang).

Some Thai food experts say that although Thai food give a balance taste, it offers taste that interplay. The experts say Siamese food has about four to five fundamental tastes: sweet, bitter, sour, salty, and spicy.

It means that Thai food is not simple and not about simplicity. It is a juggling of various elements that is perfected resulting a harmonious finished product.


Yes, you could say that it is like a combination of strings and musical instruments that produce the sound of an orchestra.

You cannot exactly tell with ingredient or element that creates a particular taste - you can only guess - because a specific taste is a product of all those ingredients combined.

Some Origins of Thai Food

Origins of Thai Food

Just like in most countries, one cannot exactly claim that a particular country's food comes from only one region or culture. Similarly, Thai cuisine can be claimed to be coming from four regions regions in the country.

These regional cuisines include: Central Thai cuisine, Isan or northeastern Thai cuisine, Northern Thai cuisine, and Southern Thai cuisine.

The Central Thai cuisine can be influenced by wet rice-growing plains and the culture of original settlers before the arrival of Thai groups. The Isan or northeastern Thai cuisine is influenced by dry environment, culture of Laos and the Khmer Empire.

The Northern Thai cuisine is influenced by green valleys, cool forest of the highlands and home of the ethnic Thai people. And, the Southern Thai cuisine is influenced by the two sides of tropical seas, many islands, ethnic Malays.

In general, Thai cuisine can also be described as the result of its neighbors mutually influencing each other in the course of history. For example, you can say that Thai cuisine shares many resemblance with Burmese, Laotian, Cambodian and Chinese dishes.

Traditionally, just like the Indian does, Thai food is eaten by hand, the right hand particularly, while you seat on a mat on the floor. But, nowadays, you will mostly see that Thai food is eaten using chopsticks, which I think an influenced from its neighboring country - like China.

Tables and chairs started to be used when the Western culture was introduced into the culture. Some say that the use of fork and spoon were introduced when one of their kings returned from his trip in Europe in the 19th century.

Personally, I have tried Thai cuisine in various places including in Thailand itself when I attended an international meeting in Bangkok. Using chopstick could be challenging to some beginners but not for me since I've been using it since I visited South Korea.

Now, enough for that background and chatter. Let's check out Cebu's available Thai cuisine in some places.
