No. The crap in a can is called SPAM.

 

Totally different crap.

Best version of Pythons Spam sketch, that I could find.
Unfortunately, it includes some information on email spam.. which, dear readers, is not the same thing.

Corned beef in a tin was war rations when fresh beef was not available.  No one really eats it unless the Germans are bombing do they?  Or on Nelson's ship during the battle of Trafalgar. 

Corned beef hash. OK to eat occasionally in UK but pointless buying it in Thailand.  You can get a whole meal for the same price.

Corn your own beef.  Not hard to do.

corned beef or bully beef as I know it is one of those things that here its too expensive compared to readily available thai mince or ground beef. I like it occasionally ( good for salads and subs) but its on a wishlist for when friends come over to visit. already a thread running about things to be brought over that are expensive here. canned corned beef is one of those.

Rule no 1 re dining in Thailand.

 

Gently gently catch the monkey.

 

Never take people to eat at any place you have not checked yourself beforehand , either by personal experience or those of friends who know what they are talking about.

A steak in "The Rib Room" at The Landmark Hotel in Bangkok. 

 

Best steak Ive ever had outside of the US, but by far the most expensive. 

Me too. But the best steak ive had since was in The meat company in soi lenkee pattaya but best if all the steaks are in Harlans Comfort in Pattaya. And half the price of the Rib room.

a few years back wife and I were going out 3 to 5 times a week to nice restaurants and when food shopping we filled the trolley with almost anything we wanted (including smoked hickory spam!!)..  

 

this year because my business is down the pan mainly due to exchange rates we are at the coupon counter more often than not..

 

or eating in..

 

  • Som tam + grilled chicken
  • Tuna / egg / salad / wraps / Tabasco sauce
  • chicken breast and rice with Tabasco sauce
  • chicken breast with veges with Tabasco sauce
  • grilled mackeral with roast veges (no Tabasco)
  • egg and rice + Tabasco sauce
  • omelette and rice + Tabasco sauce
  • sardines with rice (no Tabasco)
  • anything else with rice (add chillis and Tabasco sauce)
  • stir fried veges or veges in oyster sauce (with rice)
  • a nice piece of steak from macro once every week or so home cooked
  • spicy minced beef or pork (with rice)
  • occasional sushi/sashimi treat
  • bag of frozen prawns and fish fillets
  • dont forget corn flakes, weetabix and porridge oats
  • large bag o nuts for snacks and pickled gherkins
  • discounted premium coffee (i cant drink that tasteless rubbish coffee)
  • more Tabasco sauce

 

thats my 'on a budget' shopping list done for the month, no spam 🙂

i swear i saw a box of pop tarts once and i think it said 300 baht on them, for three double packs (6) of those tasty, delectable treats. not nearly that delectable however.

Ahhh, Pop Tarts!  The food that inspires great music like this:

 

 

I haven't actually had one in about 50 years, even with butter on it. 

 

Fortunately, I was never tempted to buy the 250 baht cans of pasta, 345 baht corned beef or even 6-packs of Pop Tarts. Seeing a tin of Chef Boyardee pasta for 10x the price in NA would always make me laugh, though.
