A trip to Bangkok without a slurping of warm gang keow wan is almost like saying the trip never happened – a huge waste of time, money and opportunity! Gang keow wan is one of the dishes that placed Bangkok on the culinary map.

Thailand’s green curry has an unbelievable depth of flavors, crediting to the green curry paste that is a mixture of green chilies, Kaffir lime, galangal, shrimp paste, lemongrass, cilantro, and other spices. The ideal accompaniment to gang keow wan is a steaming heap of jasmine rice.
