Now, this may not come as much of a surprise given where the countries are on the map, but Australians like their Thai food, especially in Brisbane. Thai restaurants here aren’t exactly few and far between but, truth be told, you’ll find the best of them – or at the least the highest concentration – in and around the CBD. Why does Brisbane like Thai restaurants so much? Well, why wouldn’t they? Thai food is relatively cheap and relatively healthy but certainly way above average when it comes to standings on the spectrum of taste. We can’t think of too many other cuisines that’ll hit you with sour, sweet, salty and bitter all at once, so it’s no wonder that Thai restaurants in Brisbane are so popular.
