Each to his own, Vietnamese food to me is bland and boring. Not sure how they can live on pho bo and spring rolls.

Talking about food OK? I had two choices to post this one, said international food   excluding western food and Thai food but never mind. Just like to find out if you guys like international

Agreed but at least they have bread and know what sandwich is.

I get a very good sandwich at the Hungry Nest in Chiang Rai, on Jetyod Road just down from the clock tower. Along with a delicious mango smoothie, my favorite Sunday lunch. Perhaps you need to get out more.

My Thai wife would let me cook her mashed potato for breakfast lunch and dinner, she loves the stuff, my mash 👍🏼
As for me, why limit myself to one type of food ?

Try everything and eat what I like, apart from the wife’s stinky fish sauce of course.

One of the reasons I enjoy living in Bangkok is the fantastic wealth and choice of food options. 

It makes it impossible to get bored of eating, only impossible to make a choice sometimes !

 

Food at home: Wife is an excellent cook and she loves cooking. I think I am a very good cook, but don’t take such enjoyment. 

 

My Wife can open a Gordon Ramsay or Jamie Oliver cookbook and recreate it perfectly. If I’m honest my Wife’s Western cooking is better than her Thai, I think its because she follows an excellent set of instructions rather than cook from memory. 

 

Her Beef Wellington is awesome. A steak and ale pie my Wife recently made is better than any I’ve ever had.

 

I make a Roast Pork Belly and it takes me a couple of days - first slow cooking, then cooling and pressing, then reducing the gravy over 24hrs, the blasting it in the oven so the skin crisps up. Amazing fluffy roasts. But, it takes a lot of time and a lot of attention to achieve the level of perfection I want. 

 

The same when I cook Indian food - just to cook my Butter chicken it takes 4 hours or so and then the issue I have is that I can’t find good enough fresh tomatoes. The exact same method and recipe in the UK is much better simply because the raw ingredient, tomatoes are much much better in the UK. 

 

 

Eating out is incredible in Bangkok: From places such as El Mercado to the Boat Noodles down the road. 

More and more Thai’s are getting the message that its not just the flavour but quality of meat, thus the Wagyu boat noodles down the road for 150 baht are also incredible.

 

 

 

One thing has always stood out to me: Good quality food is good quality food in any country. 

I hate Tofu, its bland, boring, tasteless. Why is it so much better in Japan to the point that I find it enjoyable there !

 

Good quality, fresh ingredients can’t be beaten and its easy to tell when someone has taken a shortcut and thrown in a load of MSG - thats perhaps why Chinese food is some of my least favourite.

I agree but not with the Chinese food, Thai food has more MSG than any other food

In Viet Nam I can get a sandwich on any street corner with a fresh roll made hours before at most. To get yours I would have to two planes and a 30 minute tuk tuk. Perhaps you should speak for yourself.
