National —

A northern Thai soup called “Khao Soi” topped the list of 50 world’s best soups listed by with 4.9 points out of 5.

Khao Soi is an indigenous dish in Thailand and is very popular in the Chiangmai province. According to TasteAtlas’s description, Khao Soi is a “delicious coconut soup in which numerous regional influences were combined to create a truly spectacular dish. The base of the soup is a slightly spicy broth which combines coconut milk and red curry paste.”

“The broth is served with flat egg noodles and a choice of meat, which usually includes chicken, beef, and pork. It is topped with a handful of crisp fried noodles and chopped cilantro.”

The soup received 4.9 out of 5 points, and in addition to Khao Soi, TasteAtlas also includes Tom Yum Kung (spicy shrimp soup) and Tom Kha Gai (sour coconut chicken) in their list. These three soups are fairly common in Thailand and can be found in almost every corner of the country. Tom Yum Kung is also Thailand’s national dish, even though some might argue that Pad Kra Pao (stirred fried pork with holy basil) is more suitable, TPN noted.
