Anyone who has ever visited Thailand knows of the delicious soup called Tom Yum. Once tasted, it becomes a firm favourite and is never forgotten. There are several varieties:

Tom Yum Goong or Tom Yum Kung (or Koong) is made with prawns. Goong is the Thai word for prawn and is the most popular variety of the dish. Tom Yum Kai is made with chicken whereas Tom Yum Pla is made with fish. Tom Yum Thale (or Tom Yum Po Taek) is made with a mixture of seafood and Tom Kha (Tom Kha Gai) is a sort of Thai coconut soup.

There are several other types, but whichever variety of the dish you try, the basis of the soup is the same. It gives a delicious and unusual taste of being hot whilst slightly sour. The taste was discovered hundreds of years ago by mixing several ingredients together.

The basic ingredients are: Lemongrass, Galangal, Kaffir lime leaves, Nam Pla fish sauce, Thai chilli paste and lime. Most of these are unavailable in western food stores so it is very difficult, if not impossible to make Tom Yum at home.

We are now happy to be able to offer you the soups freshly made from Thailand. Welcome to the Tom Yum shop.
