It might be a herculean task to hunt an expert chef for this gradually-gaining-popularity cuisine. Also service requires a lot of diligence as Thai food is served with a lot of ingredients and condiments. Therefore, many dishes, serving bowls and tables need to be set-up for the same.
As stated by our experts “Ingredients used in Thai cooking range from lemongrass, Chinese cabbage, lotus stems, bamboo shoots which are readily accessible, however, Thai grapes, rose apples, pea aubergine, straw mushrooms, pandan leaves which need to be imported in from the host region to maintain authenticity of the cuisine.” Therefore the import cost on top of cost of hiring a specialist Thai chef, overall makes the cuisine a little costlier.

Som Tam (or Tum) consists of strips of crunchy unripe papaya bruised in a mortar and pestle with tomato, long beans, chilli, lime and fish sauce. Our experts suggest “the dish can be coupled with a basket of sticky rice and barbequed chicken for a light yet piquant Thai meal.”
