Although I do like a good Massaman every so often, I call this complete Hogwash. If this is decided on what the general public popularity of sales being fresh in restaurants and frozen ready meals, th

Number 39: ketchup! ok... It seems we have bigger issues than Covid here

Massaman curry with a side portions of chippy chips. No you're talking.   Also Massaman curry in a pie as an alternative to the already excellent chicken balti  pie would be good.

I always thought CNN was pure propaganda garbage, but they have outdone themselves on this one.

Promoting ketchup as one of the best "meal" in the world, they make members of the Thai government  look almost credible and capable compared to this sheer stupidity...

What a crop report! In Germany a Hamburger is a citizen of Hamburg and trying to eat one would make you a cannibal.

Aka mole sauce. I've had this, only at proper Mexican restaurants, with turkey, chicken, stewed dishes and enchiladas. Never seen it with fish. Actually pretty nice.

Massaman curry is not prevalent in Thailand so how can it be number one? It is only cooked in specialty shops.

 

The bland sushi is #4? What type of survey is this?

Is the BTS office canteen "speciality"? Had a very passable massaman there yesterday.

 

Madam does a wonderfully delicious one which my brother still calles "mamasan curry", can't imagine why 🙂

Massaman is originally a Muslim dish and we know most Thai are Buddhists. I won't call it a 'Thai dish'. 

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massaman_curry

 

The name massaman is a corruption of the term mosalman, an archaic word derived from Persian, meaning "Muslim". 

 

Those who sell Massaman curry are usually Muslim Thais who is a minority.
