Tom ka gai is on just about every Thai takeout menu in the United States, making it almost as much a classic here as it is in Thailand. Its brilliance lies in the perfect balance of flavors—salty, sour, spicy, sweet, and umami—attained with only a quick simmer. Cooking it from scratch takes surprisingly little time and gives the dish the freshness found in homes and street stalls throughout Bangkok.
