As one of Asia’s biggest export markets, Thailand is an export hub for Indian cuisine, and Indian cuisine is getting better all the time.
And that trend is continuing in India.
In fact, in 2017, the country exported more than $9 billion worth of Indian food to its largest trading partner, Australia.
Thai food is increasingly appreciated in Australia, too, as its curry dishes and desserts are popular with the growing middle class in Australia’s coastal cities.
But the food that Thai food has been known for, from its prawn patties to its fried shrimp, is not always readily available in Australia.
That’s why we’re here to take a look at what Thai food you should try in Australia if you’re looking for something different from the norm.
For Thai food to truly be Indian, it needs to be both local and culturally distinct, so it’s worth trying to find a Thai restaurant near you.
And if you can’t find it near you, that’s fine.
If you’re not looking for a Thai-style food experience, you can try a Thai takeaway, such as the one on the corner of Kings Road and Maitland Road.
Or try a food truck, like the one in South Yarra.
