Khao Soi, the Food of the Gods
This Thai, Burmese-influenced noodle soup dish has been dubbed “Food of the Gods” by quite a few of its fans. Khao Soi is common in both northern Thailand and northern Laos, and literally translated, “khao soi” simply means “cut noodles”, referring to the traditional egg noodles used. There some reason to believe that the dish was historically influenced by Chinese Muslim cuisine, and the fact that the soup typically contains either chicken or beef certainly helps this claim, as Muslim tradition would have forbidden the use of pork.
As Andy Ricker pointed out in this New York Times piece, it’s “exotic without being weird and, most important, completely delicious.” It’s the kind of dish everybody can love. Have you tried?
