"Thai Isaan food"
The Northeastern area of Thailand is known as Isaan Province. It is surrounded by Laos to the North and East, Cambodia to the South, and Thailand to the West.
Isaan is located on the Khorat Plateau with the great Mekong River bordering its Northern boundary. Around 21 million Thais are home to this territory,
which happens to be famous for its cuisine!

Family gatherings are a huge part of the Isaan culture and food is always present. Meals are often leisurely periods of time to enjoy eating Thai food and times to socialize while eating an array of dishes.
Sticky Rice is the staple and an abundant form of energy in Isaan.
