If you are part of the more than half of Americans that consider themselves foodies you are probably on the hunt for that next new culinary delight. You owe it to yourself to try the best Thai food Seattle has to offer.

In the wide world of Thai food, not all dishes and restaurants are created equal. When eating Thai food in Seattle you have many options to choose from in both departments. Don’t settle for anything less than delicious.

These 6 essential Thai dishes to try will tantalize your palate and leave you wanting more. You can’t beat Thai food in Seattle if you make sure these are the dishes you order. Read on to learn them all.

1. Yellow Curry 

Whether you are a fan of curry or have never tried it, yellow curry is a staple that you need in your life. I like to think of yellow curry as the “chicken soup for the soul” of the Thai food world. It is one of three main colors of curry.

Made with yummy coconut milk and a yellow curry powder base, this curry’s coziness is heightened with tomatoes, carrots, and hearty potatoes. It goes well with chicken and is accentuated with a garnish of fresh basil.

2. Salmon Curry

Salmon curry is a delicacy that is hard to find outside of the Pacific Northwest. If you see it on a menu of curries you should make sure to give it a try. Wild-caught Coho salmon pairs well with the Panang curry base.

If you enjoy salmon, Panang curry, fresh basil, and a peppery spicy dish you will love salmon curry. Not all Thai places in Seattle will have this type of curry so make sure to keep a keen lookout for it. Of course, you can find it at any of our Thai Ginger locations around the Seattle Area!

3. Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Need a refreshing appetizer? Chicken lettuce wraps are an excellent low-carb Thai appetizer for any menu. With fresh ground chicken breast, oyster mushrooms, and ginger these wraps provide you with an excellent healthy and tasty option.

4. Crispy Garlic Wings

Americans eat close to 1.5 billion chicken wings during the Superbowl. If you are going to be scarfing down wings on game day, why not go big and make them crispy garlic wings? 

Jumbo-sized and marinated Thai style with spices and garlic as well as topped with freshly fried garlic, these wings are sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Pick up for you and your friends this game day, or grab an appetizer portion tonight for your enjoyment.

5. Crab Fried Rice

If you want a seafood kick to your fried rice you need to try crab fried rice. This signature dish is sure to impress any Thai food lover. The red rock crab pairs well with a squeeze of lime juice for a burst of flavor.

6. Pla Lard Prik

If you are a seafood lover you need to try Pla Lard Prik. A fried whole butterfly cut of boneless trout is the centerpiece of this tamarind-sauce-based dish. With heaps of vegetables, this plate is as nutritious as it is delicious.
