The total proportion of dishes containing meat declined from 2019 to 2022*
Whilst Thai food can include meat, their most popular dish is Pad Thai, which is stir-fried noodles with a combination of classic ingredients such as – eggs, peanuts, bean sprouts. Often in traditional Thai restaurants they then give the option to add tofu, prawns or meat. This is a great way to add a touch of personalisation to the dish.
