Thai Sauces
Sauces are used to highlight the flavour of Thai foods. They will range from chilli-hot to sweet to salty. If you are in doubt as to how or with what delicacy to use the sauce, ask the servers.

Prik nam pla may be the most common sauce. It is a thin sauce made from fish similar to anchovies to which has been added chopped green and red chillies. Thais use this for seasoning and salt. Its "heat" can vary considerably..
Sauce Prik Sriracha , is a slightly sweet and relatively mild chilli sauce, and is the Thai answer to tomato catsup. This orange colure sauce is also served with a number of foods.

Nahm jim jeaw is a brown sauce made from nahm pla, shaved garlic, lemon juice, coarse ground red pepper, finely chopped green onions, and tamarind juice. It can be somewhat hot, but makes an excellent dipping sauce for bar-B-Q and deep fried meats.

Sweet or Sweet and Sour sauces come in a bewildering array of recipes. They will normally be served along with dishes such as spring rolls and tod mun. Experimentation is the best way to find the tastes that suit you best. Watch Thai diners as well. They are the experts.
Thai desserts have the benefit of being refreshing but not overwhelmingly sweet like so many western desserts. Some example to try might be:

Sangkhaya Fakthong or custard pumpkin. It is a cooked desert made with pumpkin, eggs, sugar and coconut cream.

Bua Loi Phuak is taro balls in coconut cream. Taro balls are made with glutinous rice, flour and mashed taro. Palm sugar and coconut milk are cooked, after which the taro balls are added.

Kluai Buat Chi is banana cooked in coconut milk.

A caveat: never try to say "banana" in Thai. It sounds very similar to "penis"

Thailand's climate varies from tropical to subtropical, therefore a wide variety of fruits are available. Some varieties are seasonal, others are available year round.

Durian - durian
Longan - lamyai
Lychee - linchi
Mango - mamuang
