Steamed tilapia with vegetables and chilli & tomato relish is among my favourite fish dishes. The greater the variety of accompanying vegetables you can find the better. This dish is particularly good with sticky rice.

As a Lion brand guest blogger @lionbrandrice I visited Capital Asian Grocery and talked about my essential ingrediants.
My Essential Ingredients
I love shopping! Wait, it is not the kind of shopping that you would imagine. My kind of shopping is at Asian grocery stores. I can’t pass the shop without stopping. I am so happy that there are so many Asian grocery stores in Canberra, and I have been to most of them.What am I doing there? Well, sometimes it is to just check them out. Different shops have different products depending on the owners and their customer preferences. These differences usually reflect different ethnic cuisines. Most of the time I visit one, it is to get the ingredients for my cooking.

I’m back in Thailand for my holiday. Among the places I have visited this trip is Ayutthaya. Ayutthaya is the ancient capital city of Siam, a pre-Thai Kingdom, before the role was taken by Thonburi and now Bangkok. It is only an hour’s drive from Bangkok. The city is famous for its historical ruins, temple complex and giant freshwater prawns (river prawns)

My favourite thing about Australian summers, apart from the warmer weather, is that it is also mango season. Among the famous Thai desserts that include mango is Kow neiw ma moong (mango sticky rice). Continue reading “Mango Sticky Rice”
As a Lion brand guest blogger @lionbrandrice I visited Zaab street food @zaabstreetfood , with chef Sankeo showing us how to make an authentic version
Review: Eating out at Zaab Street Food
Zaab translates to both Thai and Lao. In Lao it means “delicious” … In Thai, Zaab means “intensely flavoured or extra spicy” – Charinya
My first experience in a Thai restaurant in Australia was a week after I arrived. We (my husband, his family and I) were spending my first summer holiday on the NSW south coast. After discussing choices for dinner everyone agreed that I might be missing Thai food so they should take me out to a Thai restaurant!
Oh yes! I was overjoyed and started thinking of delicious Thai foods like som tum, beef jerky, sticky rice etc.
Sweet and sour sauce creates a rare Thai dish that features no chilli and results in a plain taste. This makes it perfect for anyone seeking a break from fiery flavours. This dish highlights squid stuffed with pork mince and sweet & sour sauce, which may take a bit of work but I can confirm it is worth making.

Spicy salad, or “Yum” in Thai language, is a very popular dish. There are so many varieties of salad and you can add almost anything you like in the dish.
I love salad and this is one of the best. The dish is glass noodles salad(traditional style). The glass noodles are made from mung beans, and you can usually find a dried version.
