Thai food culture
As in many Asian countries, food and eating plays an important role in everyday life. Where in Western countries everybody orders for himself alone and eats only his own order, in Thailand everybody orders one dish which is then shared with everyone in the group. If there are many eaters around the table, there is a great variety of food and tasted for everybody. When Thai people order food, they complement each others orders so that all main tastes, namely spicy, sweet, sour and salty are present making it a harmonious meal.
