Posh Restaurants are overrated! ... Street Food YUM!
OK, Thais' english may not be the best, so if you're planning on
spending more thn few days in Thailand, you need to learn few words:
Hello in Thai is: Sawadee Kaa if you're a girl,
and Sawadee Kap if you're a guy,
Kaa and Kap also mean thank you.
Now, few things you should be prepared for:
The 'kitchen' will be a vehicle, (it might start rolling down the hill,
happenned once to me, or the Guy who's cooking for you may unexpectedly
start driving away because he sees the Police, happenned twice :p )
The Chef will not understand you,
you will get sth completely different than you've ordered
(was happenning all the time! but very often I actually really enjoyed
what I got, so just be open, try, say Kaaaa/Kap and smile :)
the wash up, might be quite close :p
And 'napkins' might be a bit different, thn usually
Cutlery and souses as well
Or there might be a Guy, staring at you... But!
You will be able to stare at the TV... btw Thai Soap Operas, Unforgattable! ;)
Instead of a flower, there might be a MoneyTree!
Nevertheless, Thai Food is absolutely delicious
so Enjoy It!
Here's a list of typical thai dishes you MUST TRY:
Khao Pad (Fried Rice) with and in a pineapple
or with veg/tofu/chicken/pork/prawns
Tom Yum (Spicy Soup)
Som Tum (Spicy Green Papaya Salad)
Pad Thai (Thai style Fried Noodles)
Gaeng Keow Wan Kai (Green Chicken Curry)
Gaeng Daeng (Red Curry)
Fancy a dessert?
There is no way, you could visit Thailand and not try famous thai pancakes!
Delicious, crispy and soft at the same time...
simple, just with an egg
Or with banana and coconut cream
Or Chocolate :D
Again, stick as a fork and Enjoy!
