Not all Thai food is so spicy that you can’t eat it. In fact, there are Thais that cannot eat spicy food!

I was in Isaan – the Northeast of Thailand and sitting down to lunch with a lot of the teachers. We were eating “Som Tam”. This is a VERY spicy papaya salad that is a favorite among people in Isaan. I tried a few bites and my mouth turned into volcano lava. I watched everyone eating it except one older teacher.

I asked her – do you like spicy food – and she said, “No, not much… I prefer it “mai pedt” (not spicy).

Wow, I thought ALL Thai people liked their food spicy. Especially in the Northeast because much of their restaurant food is spicy. Sometimes in the Northeast it’s hard to find un-spicy food.

In a Thai restaurant in Arizona though, you’re likely to find it Americanized. Be careful if you order “spicy”. If the staff is from Isaan you might end up with lava mouth.
