TL;DR: History of Khao Hom, and why is it called Khao Hom : it is a direct pronunciation from the Thais which means 'Fragrance Rice' or 'Jasmine Rice'


KHAO HOM - ข้าวหอม (K̄ĥāw h̄xm)


As the world is getting more and more borderless, we believe you guys must ever heard of Thailand, or at least Thailand's capital : Bangkok, for either your joking around with your friend, or just mumbling it's name while giggling (no judge, all good).


Khao Hom is a Restaurant in Singapore (Ang Mo Kio neighborhood) that serves Authentic Thai Food, we use an imported spices and herbs direct from Thailand, and the recipe from Rung Mama, a Thai lady that has been cook for many Thais, and Singaporean since 1980s, in both Thailand and Singapore.

Khao Hom, is a direct pronunciation from the Thais which means 'Fragrance Rice' or 'Jasmine Rice', you would find words khao hom is quite common when you're in Thailand. It's a sure thing, since Thailand is one of the highest contributor of Rice to the world, not just common rice, but a good quality rice that is fragrant, yet tasteless.


In Khao Hom, we used Fragrant rice 🍚 to accompany our bold and tasteful food served on the table. From that simple and common words, we believe it's simplicity is the one that brings up not our name, but your appetite of a nice and authentic Thai Food.


Khao Hom, as common as you found it on most of food, Rung Mama makes it special, she cook our food with her heart, and maybe with her pray and hope. Just like the mother she is for us, we hope we can forward that feelings to you, towards our food, our Authentic Thai Food.


The tasteless of white rice is so subtle, so gentle, sometimes we even forget that we use rice as the base of our meal. Especially when it mixed with a bold and flavorful taste of authentic Thai Food, I can't really describe it exactly, but it felt rice is all the way at the back there, that we hardly notice, but yet we felt something is missing, and not fully right without it.


We hope you can feel Khao Hom like the way you feel for khao hom.
