Tom yum or tom yam is a very popular hot and sour soup from Thailand. Tom yam kung or tom yum goong means the soup has prawns as the main ingredient. I actually misunderstood tom yum goong as tom yum soup with milk but it turned out that clear tom yum soup is actually called Tom yam nam sai and tom yum soup with milk is called Tom yam nam khon…so deep!
