Weird Thai Soup Made Of Shrimp Paste

Thailand is not just a tomyum land. Come to think of it, I have not had tomyum for such a long time.


Thumbs up to gaeng liang goong sod
I just tried ‘Gaeng liang goong sod‘ (แกงเลียงกุ้งสด) not long ago. It is a Thai spicy vegetable soup with prawns, and made of shrimp paste, southern style.

Shrimp paste soup sounds weird and yucky, but it was yummehlicious!

Blessed D for introducing a new Thai dish to me. It is always a risk, as I could be totally indifferent to a new dish, or fall over heads in love with it.

Do give it a try .. If you like Malaysia’s assam laksa soup texture, then you might like this soup too. Herby soup, with lots and lots of veges. Enjoy!


Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
