Good Thai Food Is Like An Acrobat On A Tight Rope

a: Good thai food ~
b: an acrobat walking on a tightrope

What: "Good Thai food is like an acrobat walking on a tightrope. For example, take the basic Pad Thai. It needs to balance the sweetness of palm sugar with the slight bitterness of tamarind, the sour pungency of fish sauce, the tartness of lime juice, the crunchiness of peanuts, the egg, the tofu, bean sprouts, pepper and it needs to do all this while not making the rice noodles too soft, dry, or oily." This is from a very good review. Please read it.
