Surprising Flavor Combinations

We know, these flavor combinations are weird, but don’t knock them till you try them!

Peanut & Meat

Fans of Thai food probably already know and love this flavor combination, but in case you haven’t tried it, peanut sauce is amazing with all kinds of meats. Satay (skewered grilled meat usually served with peanut sauce) is an awesome introduction to this unique mix of juicy, savory goodness with the distinct flavor of peanuts. Give it a try!

Fruit & Spice

Spiced fruits are extremely popular in Mexico and anywhere with a Mexican population, and for good reason. If you have never tried fruits with chili powder, you may not think this combination is appetizing, but trust us when we say that the fruity freshness mixed with the kick of spice from the chili is absolutely mindblowing. It’s also very easy to make at home as all you need is fresh fruit and chili powder.

Avocado & Chocolate

Avocado is traditionally associated with savory dishes, but did you know that it tastes amazing with chocolate? This is primarily because of its rich, creamy texture, which lends itself well to foods like chocolate cake or chocolate ice cream. Despite what you may think, the natural flavor of the avocado doesn’t overpower the chocolate at all. They work together in perfect harmony!

Cheese & Jam

Here in the USA, we often reserve cheese for either savory dishes or cream cheese, but we should really be eating it with jam more often. Soft, creamy cheeses like brie taste heavenly when piled on a crunchy cracker and topped with a flavorful jam. We recommend either regular fruit jams or the lesser known spicy chili jelly.

French Fries & Ice Cream

People who dip their french fries in their milkshakes at restaurants sometimes get weird looks, but we understand you. Many think that crunchy and salty fries would be gross when combined with sweet and creamy ice cream when they are actually an awesome combination, just like chocolate covered pretzels.

Malaysian Food

The beautiful island nation of Malaysia has a diverse cuisine influenced by its equally varied population. Let’s have a look at some of its most famous dishes!

Sate

Sate (or Satay) is one of the most popular street foods in all of Malaysia. This skewered meat dish is often made on outdoor grills with chicken or beef, and it is usually served with a peanut dipping sauce. Locals love to meet up with friends to share a meal around the Sate cart.

Hokkien Mee

Hokkien Mee is a noodle dish widely adored in Malaysia and Singapore. The ingredients used vary by region, but common ingredients include soy sauce, prawns, cabbage, chicken, and oyster sauce. It is a filling dish that can be adapted to fit your tastes.

Nasi Lemak

Nasi Lemak is so popular in Malaysia that it is considered the national dish. The main focus of the dish is the creamy steamed rice, which gets its rich taste from coconut cream. The foods served on the sides depend on where you get your Nasi Lemak, but they often include peanuts, anchovies, and cucumbers.

Laksa

There are many different types of Laksa, but at its base, this dish always has noodles and soup. Some favorites in Malaysia are Curry Laksa (noodles with a coconut-based curry soup), Nyonya Laksa (sweet and spicy noodle soup), and Asam Laksa (noodles with a fish-based broth). Try them all and see which one you like best!

Roti

Thanks to its large Indian population, Malaysia absolutely loves Roti (flat bread). It is often served with chili sauce, curry, and egg. There are also sweet variations with banana, condensed milk, or sugar.

Indonesian Food

Did you know that WN Foods has several team members from Indonesia? In honor our hardworking family and their amazing homeland, here are some popular Indonesian dishes!

Satay

Many Southeast Asian countries love Satay, and Indonesia is no exception! This grilled skewered meat dish can be found at street food stalls all over Indonesia, usually with chicken or beef covered in plenty of Kecap Manis (Indonesian sweet soy sauce).

Nasi Goreng

If you are looking for an introduction to Indonesian food, Nasi Goreng is a great place to start. It is simply an Indonesian fried rice dish with vegetables and meat. Common ingredients include chicken, shallots, and chili peppers.

Martabak

Martabak, or stuffed pancake, is one of the most beloved street foods in all of Indonesia. It can be served with both sweet and savory fillings. The sweet version is often made with condensed milk, and the savory version with eggs and various meats, like mutton or beef.

Mie Goreng

Almost every Asian country has its own noodle dish, and Mie Goreng (Indonesian fried noodles) is the favorite of Indonesia. Like Nasi Goreng and Satay, this dish uses that tasty Kecap Manis to give it a burst of flavor. It is usually topped with ingredients like fried eggs, scallion, and shrimp.

Rendang

Fans of spicy food will love Rendang. This dish is similar to a thick, meaty curry, except more dry and with less chunky vegetables. It is primarily made with beef, dry curry, and a delicious spice paste. To cool the mouth, enjoy Rendang with a side of rice.

Peanut Sauce

The USA is home to thousands of Thai restaurants, each with their own special dishes and specialties. But what do they all have in common? Peanut sauce.

Peanut sauce is one of the most popular and versatile condiments in Thai cuisine. It is a delectable sweet and salty sauce often made with peanuts, garlic, soy sauce, coconut milk, spices, and sometimes lemon grass. The texture varies based on the dish in which it will be used.

This delicious sauce can be used in almost anything, but it is most commonly used as a dipping sauce for meat or spring rolls, as a sauce for noodles or stir fries, or as a dressing for salads. Some of Wing Nien’s happy customers say they love to use their peanut sauce on pizza. How would you like to use it? Let us know in the comments!
