The Basics of Thai Cooking at Morning Glory
I made the spontaneous decision to go to Morning Glory for dinner one night while in Chiang Mai. I had the restaurant marked on Google Maps, but it wasn’t on my “definitely must go list”. Turned out, I was glad I went! Their savoury food was some of the best I had had in Thailand (and I’m quite picky/have a high standard and expectations).
The pad see ew I got really stood out, it tasted fresh and healthy. I was initially going to order two dishes, the other one being a green curry. However, the chef, Diana told me not to order the curry as she believed it would be too spicy for me (she explained she knows which of her dishes foreigners can eat easily).
So I stuck with the noodle dish, which was one of the first Thai dishes that didn’t make me feel full and bloated afterwards (along with Anchan and Maya mall’s veggie food stall). I also got a fresh mixed juice which was good, both for 100 baht.
After having gotten a taste for the food I decided to join Diana’s cooking class. We learned a lot about how to cook Thai food (without msg or msg substitutes!), with all the dishes being easy to make and coming together very quickly once you understand the basic process and thinking behind it.
