  1. Well reasoned, but why bother when facts and reason don't matter?
  2. It's hard for me to understand why the idea of building a barrier where it is effective and not spending billions of dollars to build a wall where it is not effective is an unreasonable position? I get that it is symbolic of your support for Trump and the wall is symbolic for him but doesn't rationality play a role in your policy ideas?
  3. I appreciate your passion about food! To each his own.
  4. I thought the woman who showed me the menu looked familiar.
  5. From their Facebook page. Looks great.
  6. I went in to check the menu but wasn't hungry at the time.
  7. I just saw this newish place across from the Bumrangrad entrance on Sukhumvit Soi 3. Looking forward to trying it. Anyone been there?
  8. My guess is that those Lazada shops with the huge markup don't even order from the USA or wherever until they receive a Lazada order.

    Taco Bell

    Local black beans:. Soak overnight or all day and cook in a slow cooker on low for 12 hours or so with chili, gaarlic, cumin and salt. Perfect every time but I admit I don't refrito them.
  10. Looks like the same thing. That's weird. I paid $100 last night and now it is $78, but that is for 6 boxes, not one, if I understand correctly. Arriving February 21st to 26th it says. Order Summary Item(s) Subtotal: $37.41 Shipping & Handling: $21.59 Total before tax: $59.00 Estimated tax to be collected: $0.00 Import Fees Deposit $19.04 Grand Total: $78.04
  11. I just ordered this. It came to about 100 dollars after expedited shipping and tax. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008B7ZIXS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Taco Bell

    I don't think there is any real reason to assume they will actually start selling beef. There will likely be a reevaluation of their decision based on sales over a period of time. They might or they might not. As for beans, I don't think it's going to happen. Taco Bell Thailand is dead to this vegetarian.

    Taco Bell

    They believe their most important market is the Thai middle class, not foreigners or Thais who have lived and travelled abroad. And they think those middle class Thais who have never eaten a bean that wasn't sweetened in a dessert would be grossed out by refried beans. I guess that's it anyway. I ran into an American Taco Bell marketing person here and talked about it with her but it was a bit hard to penetrate the corporate line. I was trying to get her to tell me about the entirety of the decision making process, just to satisfy my curiosity. The Thais do eat kidney beans in their salads nowadays.
  14. Anybody know of any new Ethiopean restaurants other than Habeesha on Soi Nana? There was one that opened in the food court of Bangkok Hospital and it was OK. However it is too far out of the way for me and their opening hours are inconvenient. Not sure if it is still there or not. There was also one on Soi Africa not far from Habeesha, but last time I went there I was told by someone on the street that the police closed it down due to fighting! No real reason to believe that is true, but it was closed. Thanks!
