Comments on: Ten Tasty Thai Dishes You Must Try Before You Die http://thailandlandofsmiles.com/2009/10/06/ten-thai-dishes-die/ Wed, 10 Feb 2010 13:17:30 +0700 hourly 1 By: Anna http://thailandlandofsmiles.com/2009/10/06/ten-thai-dishes-die/comment-page-1/#comment-9366 Anna Wed, 06 Jan 2010 12:33:27 +0000 http://thailandlandofsmiles.com/?p=2497#comment-9366 I was in Thailand last year for almost a year and loved the food. hi-so restos and street food, they were all good. THe bad thing was when I got back to the US, I could not eat any any of the Thai restaurants that I used to loved in Wash DC. BTW folks, the THais love to play with farangs and watch them suffer with somtum. That's my favorite dish actually. You can ask for them to make it mild, say 1 chili to start and you'll likely advace to medium mild (5 chilis someday). There's a chemical addiction to THai food and maybe the Thai culture in general.I've met so many farangs, including females, from Europe mostly, who went on vacation and overstayed. One school director from UK went on a Christian mission originally, returned a year later and has been there for almost 11 years now. I think I might be like her! I can't wait to go back!! Thanks for posting and allow me and others to relive our Thailand experiences! I was in Thailand last year for almost a year and loved the food. hi-so restos and street food, they were all good.

I'm always on the look out for international vegan cuisine (no meat, eggs, dairy) and two of these certainly fall in line. Thanks - can't wait to give them a try and see how badly I can screw them up! Good post.

Sometimes because she knows it's too spicy and other times because it's only there to add flavor but not be directly eaten. I get the ” no eat” a lot as well.

My favorite dish is the "Green Curry Gai" served at P72 in Pattaya. (Not to be confused with Gaeng Keow Wan Gai that they also serve which is MUCH hotter.) It's kind of a soup/stew with lots of white meat, potatos, and I think banana peppers. It's not too hot and very tasty. I love Som Tam, and Tom Yum Gai but my wife has to order them "pet nid noi for farang" for me. One thing I find interesting about Thai cuisine is that most of the dishes I have eaten contain inedible ingredients. ("No eat" as my wife says when I ask her what these things are floating in my Tom Yum soup.) Boy, you’re making me hungry.

It is now clear that a successful blog is all about food. Here in Isan we distinguish between Som Tum Krung Thep and plain Som Tum. The latter contains feremnted fish and lots of tiny grey crabs, and generally has a greyish appearance. The Krung Thep variety is for me, it looks clean and tastes great. Can we have some more food please. .-= Lawrence´s last blog ..<a href="http://phanathailife.typepad.com/thai-life-phana/2009/10/a-day-in-the-life-or-life-in-a-day.html" rel="nofollow">A day in the life ... or... life in a day</a> =-.
