This is one of the best Thai soup I’ve ever tasted! Bold, authentic, and all the vibrant flavors just burst inside your mouth. It has the right zing, the perfect blend of all ingredients, balance by the coconut milk. You can adjust the spice, make it mild or super spicy. It all depends on how you like it. But I always prefer mine with more kick that never fails to tingle my taste buds and make my nose run. And this Thai Coconut Soup is loaded with shrimp and mushrooms, another plus point for me because shrimps and shiitake? Why not? This delicious and spicy Thai soup is all you need to spice up your day.
