Thai spicy shrimp soup

Original name
Tom Yum Goong / ต้มยำกุ้ง Thailand
Thai spicy shrimp soup or known by the local as "Tom Yam Kung" is claimed to be one of the top five choices by both the local and foreigners because of its unique taste of herbs and spices flavored with fragrant lemon grass, fresh galangal root and kaffir lime leaf.

In the Tom Yam, instead of shrimp, it can be other meats such as fish, chicken and other seafood or mixed seafood.
