The key elements that form Thai cuisine are simple, but getting them in balance is where it can become very difficult indeed. One needs to keep four flavour profiles in equilibrium: sweetness and sourness, taken from liberal use of palm sugar, tamarind, lime and lemon; saltiness and spice, derived from fish or oyster sauce, as well as chillies. When these three are in sync, then the dish will be good, and if you’re wanting to find out what that tastes like, then you could do far worse than taking a trip to Bai Yok Modern Thai Cuisine in the Quadrangle Shopping Village on Edinburgh Road in Castlecrag. Sydney’s Thai restaurants are as good as any found outside of Thailand itself, and this is widely-regarded as being among the best that they are anywhere, so take a trip out to the Northern Suburbs to find out what all the fuss is about. Book a table, though, as they will get crowded on occasion.
