Best Tom Yam in Kuching

Written by Updated ago

Tom Yam is a Thai soup that’s widely served in neighbouring countries of Thailand and has become an exotic delicacy around the world. The spicy Thai dish was created primarily with peppers and garlic and it has been mixed and infused to add an extra kick to it. Tom Yam has been in the vicinity of every nook of Malaysia including Kuching. A perfect cuisine that goes well with almost any Thai dish. The invasion of Thai gourmet has brought about a slight change and added local ingredients to the Tom Yam in certain places whereas some have solely and strictly remained with its original Thai recipe to maintain its authenticity. Craving for a spicy salty-sour broth? Here are a few selected restaurants serving what is to be said Kuching’s best Tom Yam but it all comes down your judgement so rate whichever you think is best!
