Yum Yai Thai Salad
One Thai Royal dish is the Yum Yai Thai Salad, is seasoned with a distinctive taste of a Japanese soy sauce called shoyu, something the Thais called Num Pla Yee Poon in the past. Although containing no fish (so not actually a Num Pla), this soy sauce first appeared in a poem mentioning Yum Yai Thai Salad, written in Thailand during the reign of King Rama II.
Today, this seasoning is common in Thailand, making a firm mark on Thai cuisine. The obsession with shoyu later saw the introduction of other seasonings from Japan, such as MSG by way of Ajinomoto brand.
The Imperial Mae Ping Hotel is proud to present the timeless dish, Yum Yai, taken from traditional Royal Thai cuisine, made with only the freshest vegetables and the best cuts of meat.
