Siam Society: Modern Authentic Thai Food

My favourite Thai dishes come from the Esarn region of Thailand which is essentially sticky rice with Som Tam (raw papaya salad) served with grilled dishes like Khaw Mu Yang (grilled pork neck).

The presence of sticky rice at any Thai restaurant in Singapore is one of my gauge for the authenticity of the food being served.
