If you tasted Thai Food before, then you know the best thing about it is the balance of five flavors: sour, sweet, salty, bitter, and spicy. Thai cooks know how to pull off a flavor induced meal to rather leave quiet the impression!

What we love about the Japanese cuisine is that everything seems to have a story behind it. As every dish has been twisted and turned over centuries. Japanese cuisine, unlike other cuisines, has certain traditions in preparation, presentation and even in the way of eating. It’s considered to be among the most refined cuisines.

You say Chinese and we automatically start seeing red lanterns with Chinese symbols. There’s something about the Chinese cuisine that makes every country have a CHINA TOWN of its own. It’s not only the food, but it’s also everything about their culture. The cuisine has several sections; Northern, Western, Eastern and Southern. Every part of China have developed their own version of Chinese food and it’s all worth the try!

Brazil isn’t only about Rio’s carnival, exotic birds, colorful beaches, and football, the food is rather worthy of mentioning too! They are quite known for their ways of cooking the food.
