Tom Kah Soup


FINALLY! Why do I say this? Let me start with a quick back story: Any time we go visit my family in California we always order from this amazing Thai restaurant called Thai East Wind Restaurant. We usually get the same things every time we order there and one of those dishes is their Fisherman’s Seafood Chowder. Now, this is the best soup I have ever had at a Thai place, so any time my mom and I go to a Thai restaurant we absolutely have to order a Tom Kah soup.
{Since the Fisherman’s Chowder’s base is coconut milk, Tom Kah is the soup we needed to try.}
Each Thai place we’ve eaten at has had delicious Tom Kah soup, but nothing has come close to that Chowder from East Wind, until recently. The time has come where we met our match. A couple of years ago my best friend gave me a cookbook called Everyday Thai Cooking, so one day my mom and I decided to conquer one of the recipes in there and boy did we conquer it. We made the Tom Kah Soup and it was absolutely fantastic; the closest we have ever had to Fisherman’s Seafood Chowder! We couldn’t stop raving about how amazing it tasted and that we finally found it! Though this recipe may take time to cook and effort to find the ingredients, it is sooooo worth it all. We will most definitely be making this again.

We also made some California Sushi Rolls! Check out the recipe here.
