This is a recipe for Tom Yam Kung Spaghetti. It’s a fusion and modern twist of a Thai classic. Tom Yam Kung is a traditional Thai soup, which is one of the most popular Thai dishes men have ever known. The dish is a perfect balance of sweetness, saltiness, sourness, and spiciness. The fresh herbs give a face to the dish and the fish sauce gives it the full umami flavor.

Pasta is something Marco Polo brought to Italy, inspired by his trips to China. Kao Pad Tom Yam (Tom Yam stir-fried rice) is a new dish which is becoming increasingly popular in Thailand.

Thai people like food. Thai people love Tom Yum. Italian food like pizza and pasta is gaining popularity in Thailand. Stir-fried rice is something everybody likes. Stir-fried Tom Yum is something new and exciting.
