3 Fruits to Enhance Your Thai Cuisine Experience, Kahului, Hawaii

With its enticing combinations of sweet, tart, and spicy, Thai cuisine is all about balance. The cuisine mirrors the diversity of Thailand itself—from its white sand beaches and crystal blue surf to bustling cities with high-rises. Find harmony in your next meal by ordering a dish that features a tropical fruit from the “Land of Smiles.” At Thailand Cuisine 2 in Kahului, HI, the authentic, delectable plates will have you coming back for more.

Here are just a few of the fruits featured on their unique menu.


Papaya is an oval-shaped fruit with green skin. When you cut into a papaya, you’ll notice its vibrant orange meat and a slew of dark black seeds. In Thai cuisine, papaya is often shredded and mixed with lemon, chilies, fish sauce, and peanuts to create a scrumptious salad. This dish is especially refreshing in warm weather, as it’s served chilled.


thai cuisineYou’ve probably encountered a coconut or two, but do you know what a significant role this fruit plays in Thai cuisine? This spherical fruit lends its milk and juice to many popular Thai curries. Red, yellow, and panang curries are often made with coconut milk, and the creamy liquid lends a richness to any dish it infuses. In northern Thailand, coconut milk is also used to make an aromatic curried noodle soup known as khao soi.


Thailand is one of the top producers of pineapples in the world. The Thai people have adapted to their abundance of fruit by adding its yellow meat to an assortment of drinks, desserts, and savory dishes. Most often, you’ll find pineapple in Thai fried rice. When combined with bean sprouts, eggs, cashews, and chilies, pineapple lends a tangy sweetness to its savory kick.
