  Tom Yum Kung
by imstress

Tom Yum Kung is the most famous and frequently order of all Thai soups all over Bangkok.

It is typically made with prawns (seafood, fish or chicken are also available) and flavoured with lemon grass, chilies and kaffir lime leaves.

If u dont take spicy soup, u may request them to seperate the spicy ingrident of Tom Yum Kung and it is also heavenly!

I did that at the NaNa Restaurant at the airport. 150THB.

The one at Chatuchak was spicy but very delicious.
