A Short Introduction to Thai Food…

For those who are familiar with it, Thai food often conjures up the tastes and aromas of certain ingredients, particularly fresh lime, chillies, galangal, lemongrass and coconut milk.

Ingredients such as these are at the heart of Thai cuisine, as are a plethora of herbs, spices, and seafood, a cultural trait that is interwoven with the country’s history.

Originally, Thai dishes had a lot in common with those from the Szechuan region of China, but soon developed their own unique character by using ingredients introduced to the country by neighbouring India.

This, combined with chillies brought to the region by the Portuguese, helped in the creation of the popular Thai dishes we know and love today, with a distinct regional variation also developing around this time, a feature put down to the country’s agricultural diversity.



The Dishes…

At Tiger Rock, we pride ourselves on bringing authentic Thai food to Liverpool, providing our customers with the opportunity to experience the best of what this region’s rich cultural history has to offer.

Amongst our dishes is, of course, Pad Thai, a popular street food that consists of stir-fried noodles with chicken. As is commonplace in our restaurants, this dish can also be served as a vegan option, as well as being available for those with gluten-free dietary requirements.

Som Tam is also available, a papaya salad with carrots that is served with peanuts, chillies and fish sauce on the side.

As well as this, our Geng Know Wan Gai is often best recognised as a classic Thai Green Curry, a dish consisting of either chicken or vegetables cooked in a paste comprised of green chillies, shallots, garlic, galangal, lemongrass and more.



Last on our list (but by no means the last of what our restaurants have to offer) is Yam Neur, a Thai steak salad that consists of fish sauce, chillies, mint and cucumber, a blend of ingredients that pay homage to the wide variety of flavours that are synonymous with authentic Thai cuisine.
