On every Sydney trip there is always a place I must visit and that is Thai town! Thai Town is located in Haymarket around Campbell Street/Pitt Street, to the east of George Street. To the west of George Street lies Sydney’s Chinatown. The area has a Thai vibe as it consists of Thai grocery shops Thai video stores, Thai massage shops, training businesses and, of course, so many Thai restaurants.
Each restaurant does a good job providing authentic tastes. I can’t really tell you which are better as it depends on what you like. Some shops might make a better Pad Thai but their somtum might not be as good as the others.
Here are some of my activities from my recent day trip to Sydney Thai town.

Thai green papaya salad, also known as som tum, is the most requested of all my recipes. There are many versions of it, however most of my papaya salads feature fermented fish or crabs, the latter being the Isan version. The simplest version of som tum is “som tum Thai” which is popular in the central region of Thailand and among foreigners.
As a Lion brand guest blogger @lionbrandrice I made Thai Style Chicken Biryani Recipe (Khao Mok Kai)for Lion brand Blog. Here is the recipe.
Charinya of @charinyas_kitchen puts together a stunning Thai version of chicken biryani
The dish is khao mok kai. “Khao” is rice, “mok” in this context is “bury” or “place underneath” and the last word is “Kai”, which means chicken.
In summary the name “Khao mok kai” is “chicken buried in rice” which explains the way of cooking this dish.- Charinya

Here I am going to show you how I made Thai green curry paste. This curry paste is the key ingredients for the famous Thai green curry. For anyone experiencing difficulties finding all the ingredients, using a jar or can of curry paste is acceptable.
I am honored to introduce George Hardiman, my reader contributor, who has been to Thailand several times. Nevertheless his recent trip was different from the others and he would like to tell the story. Here is George! ~ Charinya
My recent trip to Thailand has made me more aware and appreciative of Thai food than previous trips, mainly because I stayed in a private house with friends rather than the usual hotels.
