Did you ever wonder what the condiments are you find in many street restaurants?

Prik Nam Bpla - Fishsauce with chopped chilies, salty and a little bit spicy. It is used to add flavour to rice and noodle dishes.

Namtaan - Sugar, seems Thai people love sweet food (if combined with spicy taste).

Prik Phon - Dried chopped chilies to add more taste to otherwise non spicy rice or noodle dishes and soups. Often the powder is not really spicy. The fresh chilies from the Prik Nam Bpla add more taste.

Prik Nam Som - Copped chilies in rice vinegar; adds a sour taste to your rice or noodle dish. I prefer lime if available.
