When trying traditional Thai food in Nashua, the best way to get the full experience is to pair your meal with some of these authentic Thai drinks. Whether you are into tea, coffee, or something a bit stronger, authentic Thai cuisine offers something for everyone.
In this article, weâ€™re presenting you with some of the most popular non-alcoholic drinks offered at Giant of Siam!
If youâ€™re a lover of Thai food, chances are you have heard of this tasty drink! A typical Thai iced tea consists of black tea and sweetened condensed milk, which is served over ice with sugar and evaporated milk on top. As one of the most iconic Thai drinks, this is a must-try for anyone!
Oliang is translated to black iced coffee. However, itâ€™s not the black coffee we think of in America. Instead, this delicious drink consists of coffee, brown sugar, and various grains and seeds. The grains vary but may include corn, soybeans, rice, and sesame.
Oliang has the unique aroma of coffee paired with smoky notes of roasted grains and seeds.
If youâ€™re looking for something untraditional, yet refreshingly simple, this combination is for you â€“ sugar-sweetened coconut milk with boba pearls. If youâ€™re not familiar with boba pearls, theyâ€™re simple translucent spheres produced from tapioca, a starch extracted from the cassava root. Cassava can be defined as sweet or bitter, depending on the amount used.
Another simple staple is Nam Manao. Created with lime juice, water and sugar, this drink is a fantastic complement for spicy Thai curries. Depending on where you order Nam Manao, it can come pre-sweetened or served with sugar syrup on the side.
