Story of Esan
Esan is Northeastern region of Thailand. Also, it's Thailand's largest region, located on the Khorat Plateau, bordered by the Mekong River (along the Laos–Thailand border)
Esan food has elements most in common with Laos and is somewhat distinct from central Thai cuisine. The most obvious difference is the consumption of sticky rice rather than non-sticky long-grain rice in central Thai cuisine.
Esan food is health-friendly food. Most of Esan dishes are comprised of fresh mixed vegetables, lean meats and natural spices such as chili peppers, basil leaves or dill as ingredients
