This is a reason that Thai food is often some of the more spicy and tasty cuisine to be found. Additionally, Thais like to combine their foods such that each plate carries a balance of three to four flavors or tastes. This is a very important part of eating Thai food.

Thai food is composed of various ingredients specifically seafoods such has fish, fish paste, chili paste, chilis, noodles, a wide variety of vegetables, chicken, and pork.
