@anotheruser, the pasty looks good, nothing else posted I'd want to eat so far.

Anotheruser, in the second pic the sliced beef, is that cooked meat or waiting to be cooked- looks way too rare to eat?

It is cooked already. Normally I cook it a bit more but with Kobe beef I only sear it and cook it until it as rare as it can be but the texture is still not that stringy texture you get when it is too raw. Some people probably wouldn't like it as rare as I do. There were other pieces that were more of a medium rare but this was the ones I chose for my plate.

Also when you cut it into strip in this style in my opinion you can cook it more rare than usual. I made a portion of medium rare for my partner. :)

Don't we get enough of this on Facebook without it starting up on TV as well!!

What's the problem? You deliberately entered a thread knowing it was a food pic thread. Is this somehow interfering with your enjoyment of this particular food sub-forum? Are we disturbing your hang out? One of my observations about TV is there is very little use of pictures, people don't normally have avatars, not many video clips. I am going to start adding pics to the Bangkok restaurant thread as well.

I am sure there is a why to disable pictures if you prefer restaurant reviews with no pics.

One thing that distinguishes this thread from FB posts is the people here are generally in Thailand so if something looks good it should be easily reproduced in LOS.

For this reason I encourage people to share where they got their ingredients from. This is one thread out of many on TV and if it bothers you it is easily avoided. For the rest of us into eating well and food culture I think it is a nice addition. Let me guess, you probably don't cook much at home?

So what are you eating?

The thread really isn't about any one persons individual tastes, you probably wouldn't eat everything in a grocery store either. The tacos look pretty good, as do the buffalo wings. The one with the tomahawk and quiche looks great as well. My only suggestion for his posts would be to get his pics where a a blue pvc pipe isn't in the background. Looking back at mine I could have rmoved my leg out of my pasty pic as well. lol

There are going to be things that aren't to my taste either but this is just a sign of the diverse dishes we are all making. It looks like he could run a restaurant quite easily.

There will be some people selling food products that would probably be interested in this thread as well to see what their potential customer is doing in a Thai kitchen.

So please if you post give a tip on how to make the food or say what you use even if the comment is very brief.

Mainly vegetable and soy protein and gluten. These are not home made. Everything else is...including the spring rolls, but she buys these commercially...frozen in a bag. Can be fried or baked or even microwaved, i suppose. Next time we get some, I'll post a pic and ingredients.

I just finished a small bowl of greek yogurt and muesli [not very photogenic] but looking at the photos, now I am really hungry...

Can someone tell me where I can get tofu that tastes like and has consistency of chicken? I have had it in a Vegetarian restaurant in Bkk, but don't know where to purchase it...

go down to your local traditional/fresh market and check out the hand made, unpackaged tofu...it don't taste like anything on its own but in true tofu fashion acquires the flavor of whatever you cook it with...I usually stir fry with whatever veg is available with plently of onions and garlic...firm consistency...

I am more interested in how it is made.

Can't help much with that. Highly processed vegetarian junk food! There are every kind of mock meats out there. Similar flavors and textures to the real things.

Gourmet Market...basement of Terminal 21. They sell some "J" (veg) mock meats in the refrigerated section...chicken, pork, fish balls. GF uses the "chicken" to make vegan Bar-B-Q (shish kabobs) thumbsup.gif

Are you really dipping those in ketchup? :)

Gammon, hashbrowns, breakfast sausage patties, toast and eggs, for dinner tonight. All of this is bought at Villa. Some of it not in this photo. The grill has been very handy picked it up in Isetan on sale for 2,500 Baht so much better than the stupid hobs that come with most condos. One side has extra elements for searing things instantly. I highly recommend it.
