Best Tom Yam in Ipoh

Written by Updated ago

A Tom Yam dish is distinguished according to the types of meat or seafood ingredient being used, for instance, "Tom Yam Goong", is the world renowned quintessential classic of Thai cuisine with prawn as the main ingredient. Deliberately piquant and spicy, this fiery soup entices you with fragrant herbs such as galangal, lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves. More often than not, the broth comes in two variations - clear and thick version, sometimes with a reddish tint coating seen at the top. If you have not been to the “Land of Smiles” yet, perhaps the best tom yam in Ipoh is where you should begin with!
