Can't handle the heat? Choose your dishes wisely in Thailand
Ask for your dishes mai phet ("not spicy"). Thai food can get really spicy—know what you're in for. (Phet means spicy.) Skip the nam pla if you’re on a low-sodium diet. This fish sauce is used instead of salt, and is added just as commonly. See our Thailand Travel Guide.
