Yellow Curry, Pad Grattiem, Chicken & Mango Sauce, Pad Honey, Lemon Chicken, Red Lamb Curry, Duck Rolls, Dack Paradise, Soft Shell Crab, Stir Fry Scallops – feeling something? Trying hard not to drool with your mouth already watering? If that’s the case then you have fallen in love with the Thai cuisines – very much like your fellow countrymen, and rightly so!
Of late, Australia has witnessed a spurt of Thai restaurants, and there are reasons behind it. Thai foods are healthy, and the variety that you get in them by default makes you enthralled, and that is what makes the difference.
Well, this is a blatant conclusion and is rather an understatement. The issue demands more introspection that will make things clearer to you. Here are a few reasons that we need to discuss. These are more or less the factors that make the Thai cuisines so very popular and trendy these days.
The Ingredients Are Healthy
The ingredients that are generally used to prepare are extremely healthy. For instance, turmeric used is an anti-inflammatory agent. Besides, it protects platelet and makes the heart healthy. It is also an antioxidant.
Again, kaffir lime leaves, which are used in almost each and every restaurant in Mornington offering Thai food is also considered to be an antioxidant agent. Then there is chilli, coconut milk, coriander, tamarind and many more and all of them are so very beneficial to health.
The Dishes Are Not Spicy
The way the Thai dishes are prepared makes all the difference in the psyche of the gourmets. Unlike the preparation of food from many Asian countries, the Thai food preparation technique is completely different, with minimal use of oils and spices. This helps the ingredients retain their respective food value as well as the medicinal values. Thus, in spite of cooking, the recipes remain healthy and that takes us back to the first point.
The Acceptability of Cost at Which These Dishes Are Available
Almost all the Thai dishes are available at costs that are permitted by the coffer of the Aussie blokes. More importantly, unlike in the other Asian food restaurant fraternity in Mornington, foods are served by Thais in the Thai restaurants.
Naturally, this adds a tinge of authenticity to the entire ambience, and this is one of the factors that attract people towards these dishes.
The Expertise of the Chefs
The chefs in these Thai restaurants are expert to say the least. They are master chefs, and that ensures that the dishes they prepare are absolutely astounding. The natural deliciousness and the delicacy of the Thai dishes are lifted manifold due to this factor. This is something that makes a huge difference.
The Weather Factor
The Australian summers are unusually hot, harsh and long. And the customary taste and the aroma of the Thai dishes go perfectly with the weather and the atmosphere of the land. They are refreshing and generally cause to health concern. This is another factor that makes these dishes so much favourite these days.
Last but not the least, increasing health consciousness is driving people to the traditional Thai dishes, instead of the popular fast and junk foods. It’s a good sign, more so for the younger generation.
So, riding on these reasons the Thai food fraternity is getting more and more popular, and this is having a tremendous effect on the quality Thai restaurant fraternity in Australia.
