Dairy Allergy

Hi folks,

We're visiting Khao Lak in Feb next year. I was wondering if you might be able to provide some advice on eating out. I have a dairy allergy and hopefully will get my translation cards soon.

I know generally Thai food would not contain any dairy products but in some Thai restaurants (in Aberdeen for example) some chefs would add cream to a thai curry dish. Does this happen here?

I am not a fussy eater but just need to be careful of what I eat.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Dairy is not a really common ingredient-- but it's out there.... You will find it more often in desserts and sweets than in entrees... Thinking about the various desserts made with sweetened condensed milk and the like. but I can also think-- like you-- of some curries and the like that have it either as a sweeter or thickening agent,,

But I think in the big picture, it's not an overly common ingredient in entrees.

Travel Safe,
