Prayut hails the power of Thai cuisine as Khao Soi is named the best soup in the world
“It’s good news that Thai cuisine is becoming so well-known to foreigners,” said Prayut, speaking at a food promotion expo organized by the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society. (DESM) at Government House in Bangkok.

Prayut, who faces a tenure dispute that could see his term as prime minister end next Tuesday, added that Khao Soi is now part of Thailand’s “soft power” campaign to boost the economy.

He urged DESM and Thailand Post to continue promoting Thai cuisine through channels such as YouTube and internet influencers.

Khao Soi topped the list of “The World’s 50 Best Soups” published last Thursday by TasteAtlas, a website that collects recipes and reviews from food critics around the world.

Thai soup was followed by Cullen Skink, Ramen, Tonkotsu Ramen, Żurek, Mercimek çorbası, Sinigang, Rawon, Salmon Soup (Lohikeitto) and Ciorbă de pește “ca-n Deltă”.

“A signature dish of northern Thailand, khao soi is a delicious coconut soup in which many regional influences are combined to create a truly spectacular dish,” TasteAtlas says.
