Thai food is internationally famous. Whether chili-hot or comparatively bland, harmony is the guiding principle behind each dish. Alone among all countries in Southeast Asia, Thailand has never been colonized by any European or Asian power. Consequently, Thai cuisine is something uniquely Thai.
The impression that Thai food is very sweet is wrong. In general, we do add a little bit of sugar in our dishes to enhance the flavor in place of MSG. There is an exception for some dishes, such as curries, especially Green Curry. These curry dishes do require a little bit more sugar because of stronger spices we put in.
