Asia is an enchanted land. There is so much good food that the first time traveller cannot help but remain in awe. Pan-Asian cuisine is a delicious fusion of flavours from all over Asia including Thai, Japanese, Malaysian, Chinese, Vietnamese and Indian dishes. It is not for nothing that these countries are collectively nicknamed the Exotic East. All spices and indigenous ingredients come together in woks and pans to create unique dishes that have no match in any other cuisine.
All Asian countries are endowed with lush natural beauty and rich regional cuisines. The common thread is the use of fresh, readily available ingredients and spices to flavour the food. The dishes can be pungent, sour, sweet and sour or simply flavoured.
