Why do farangs go all the way to LOS to eat western food?

Recommended Posts

My midget can make a top chicken balti with naan bread even she likes it, I get to make a big pan of it then put in the freezer

My wife is a great cook she will make anything I want she has lots of recipes for Asian Fusion style sometimes we go out to eat I get disapointed with the junk they serve poor quality

My Thai girlfriend similar. She can cook English, Italian, some Indian food, think she looks up ideas/recipes on youtube or something similar.

When we were first together always went out to eat. One time had a really unpleasant overpriced western meal in a restaurant.

She just said I can cook better than that.

 

So within days bought up the items to make a nice kitchenette. 

Better food than the majority of restaurants and at far better value prices.

She generally prefers Thai food herself  but can and does also eat western food.

 

I do still go to restaurants but it is more of a social thing, going with friends and also of course there are some western dishes I like she cannot do, or has merely not tried to.

I find Thai food dull, poor quality meat, and always over-spiced to hide the rotten taste of the meat.

I eat English, Indian, Italian or Mexican food wherever I go, most of it I can cook.

Local dishes aren't any cheaper when you cook it yourself.

Argentinian restaurants, especially the one next to Terminal 21 😋

 

Somehow, thai food, or any other food I eat, my gf make it more adoptable for a western, or I go to restaurants who make good mix and give healthier choices, than wat you normaly would call "real thaifood". Real thai food, what is that? Isaan food, Bangkok food, south food? The last decades, the real thai food have faded.

I do not regard it as negative on Thailand if one chooses to eat western food, or for that matter mix n match.

 

Best to eat what you like really. ( health/nutrition issues aside )

I'm thinking it's all about for the same weird obscure reason,

that it is only in LOS that I'd walk into a 7-11 too...

I cook and eat Thai,Indian,Western,Mexican,Italian,ect,even dishes

I makeup myself,also buy dishes from the market when too tired

to cook,eat out ,mostly Thai, Indian,wish there was a British Chinese

 style takeaway nearby.

regards worgeordie

One of the things I miss here the most is western style Chinese food. I have taught myself to do some pretty good versions of it but no one can cook those beautiful big plump snappy prawns the way the chows do

western standard is 50% meat 50% rice/potato

 

asian standard 25% meat 75% rice

 

...have a wild guess what i want,

yep, that is right, i want more meat

then even western standard,

like 80/20 in favor of meat,

or even more if i want to eat healthy/diet

I enjoy eating Thai food but there's nothing wrong with eating a bit farang grub in Thailand.

 

Food is just food. Who cares where it comes from!

You are what you eat.
