“Ishan and Thai cuisine”
Derived from a Sanskrit word, “Ishan” (north east direction), Isan is a commonly used word to describe the beautiful northeastern plateau of Thailand. Bordered by the famous Mekong River, Isan is situated next to Lao People's Democratic Republic and Kingdom of Cambodia. The region is known and loved for its strong family ties and lively cultures seen in upbeat music, memorable festivals and simple traditional clothing. Noted for their sincere hospitality, Isan people welcome guests with open hearts and fun loving spirits. Equally magnificent are Isan dishes. Even though specific to the region, Isan gourmet varieties are ubiquitous in the vast landscape of Thai cuisine. Scrumptious choices such as somtum (papaya salad), sticky rice, hot soups and charcoal grilled meats among many others are mainstays of Thai food. Known for its simple presentations yet layered mixtures of ingredients, Isan kitchen leans towards the spicy side of the taste spectrum while packing in balanced, explosive punches from different but complimentary dishes. It is unique, energizing and simply delicious.
