Cooking superb Thai food is not an easy task. The rub of it lies in the balance of flavours, and the juggling act required to keep them all in check. Saltiness, from fish sauce and oyster sauce, must be levelled out with spice, taken from chillies, and sweetness, derived from palm sugar, is measured against sourness, a result of liberal use of lime, lemon and tamarind sauce. If you’re in Hong Kong and you want to pick up some great Thai food, then you need to head on over to Kowloon City, where the best of the genre are to be found in the area known as Little Thailand.

Don’t just take our word for it though, head on over to Lung Jie on Nam Kok Road and try it out for yourself.
