Cook Like a Thai: Garlic Pork


Have you ever wished that your favorite vendor put more meat into your Pad Thai? Or make your Tom Yum less spicy? We have a perfect solution for you!

As a spinoff to our well-received ’Eat Like a Thai’ series, we now introduce to you ’Cook Like a Thai’. This series include authentic recipes of your favorite Thai dishes. Although it is relatively cheap to eat out here in Thailand, home cooking definitely has its perks. That is, you are free to adjust the recipes to your preferences, and opt for higher quality materials!

As a follow up to our first post on Tom Yum Goong, today we bring you another locals’ favorite, Garlic Pork.
