But if you are specifically watching your foods for certain ingredients, there are a few things you can do when ordering Thai food to customize it to your specific needs.
If you are diabetic or watching your sugar intake, you can specifically request no sugar in your Thai food by saying “namthon my ow, cap.” That translates as “no sugar, please.”
Those of us with high blood pressure can order Thai food with no salt by saying “glua my ow, cap.” This means no salt, please. Often, Thai food does have salt added, so if this is important to you, definitely make a specific request when ordering.
If spicy Thai food upsets your stomach, you can request that it be cooked not so hot by saying “my ow pet” which means “I don’t want it spicy”.
If you are healthy eater, Thai food is a great choice because it has lots of vegetables and is not heavy with unhealthy fats. Hopefully, these tips will help you to order Thai food customized to your specific tastes and needs.
