Gaeng Som (Sour Soup) แกงส้ม
Gaeng som translates to sour soup – but throughout Thailand there are a number of different variations and styles.
In Bangkok when you order gaeng som, it’s often a reddish sweet and sour soup including shrimp. But in the south of Thailand, gaeng som is a staple soup that’s laced with chillies and seasoned with turmeric and enjoyed with almost every meal.
The soup is made of ground chillies, fresh turmeric root and lots of garlic. The result is a fiery broth that will excite your taste buds with every slurp! #ThaiFood
