Thai noodle shops (ran kuaitiao), rice & curry shops (ran khao kaeng), and food-to-order shops (ran ahan tam sang) dominate the lively street food scenes in Thailand and serve as evidence of the importance of noodle and rice dishes in the Thai culinary repertoire. Not only are noodles served as street food, they are also frequently served cooked at home, especially since quick and easy meals are increasingly becoming more important in modern Thai families. No matter where you are in the present, rapidly changing world, serving a full meal at home has become an exception rather than the rule. Single-plate dishes including noodle, pasta, and rice have become more and more an essential part of home cooking throughout the world.
