The two most popular types of green papaya salad have either dried shrimp or salted crab. Green papaya salad with dried shrimp and peanuts is called som tum thai. The green papaya salad with salted crab is called som tum pbooh. The majority of the ingredients are the same. My mother likes it with both dried shrimp and salted crab.
Dinner, which is the main meal of the day, consists usually of at least three dishes with rice. Dishes are not considered courses and are served at the same time. It is customary to take portions from each dish and this can be in any order one prefers.
In the olden days, Thai meals were traditionally eaten with fingers, But that practice has long since ceased in the modern society, and nowadays Thai food is enjoyed with spoon and fork. We hope you do enjoy our food in the same way.
