Detroit was changing back then if you look close you can see me to the left of the Supremes the year before my prom.  However canned corned beef was not on the menu,

"Whats the most expensive food you have bought here?" So you didn't buy it !

Siamburys is the place to go. Much cheaper than Thai shops for corned beef and suchlike.

I for one have coin, but 375 baht for corned beef in a can is the topic.

 

I agree with the OP... just walk away.

Thank <deleted> I have baht and not pounds in the bank. Whats the most expensive food you have bought here?

 

I DID NOT BUY IT  but the most expensive common item I've seen recently is this maple syrup at a local store.

 

790 THB is dear IMHO.

 

A friend suggested it's so expensive because it has the Canadian flag (original) but that hardly justifies the price for me.

 

I wouldn't pay that much for maple syrup  regardless of its country of origin.  I nevertheless shop at and like the market where I saw this.

Official import rates for processed food is minimum 30% to maximum 50%. Fresh meat fish fruits and dairy products is 30% to maximum 55%. From Thai customs website. Of course what you actually pay is up to them.

IIRC a tin of corned beef was about that (maybe even 395) in Villa but I bring mine in from Singapore where it's < s$4 (< 100 THB) a can 

 

A timely reminder, I'm pretty sure I've run out so will need to bring some back with me on tomorrow's return.

Corned beef in a can... is that the crap called Spam ?

 

To answer the question though I do like me a Wagyu Tomahawk steak but at Bt.4500 I have had to slow down a bit on them until the AUD bounces back.

Spam is different, you aren't British are you.

That's one of the big reasons I stay in Thailand.  I can eat anywhere I want and tell my wife to order anything she wants.  Rayong not Bangkok.  I can buy any phone I want.  I can tell my driver to drive anywhere I want.  I can stop at the local place and choose any company I want.  I live where I want, had the furniture I want custom made.  I make my own food and buy anything I want to accomplish that.  I cure corned beef and ham.  

 

One of the nicest things is doing what I want to do and that is priceless.  

marcus,  years ago l too made corned beef at home, simple really.  do use aussie brisket?

I think it was Thai French.  The more fat in the brisket the better.
