    a few years ago, this dish was almost unheard amongst most foreigners and very rare in phuket. now, it gets much more play on the travel sites and a few shops have opened up here in phuket town.

    ba-mee naam moo daeng is my drinking dinner. if i'm going out for a big night, that's a perfect start--not too big, not too small.

    That redefines Bangkok as the fast food capital of the world.

    I prefer somtam (som tam?), but not with crab. Don't get me wrong, I like crab as much as the next seafood lover, but not those small ones they put in somtam. Have had the variation of the meal served with peanuts and thought that was good…the peanuts seemed to tone down the level of spiciness from HOLY HELL! to THREE ALARM FIRE! :smile2:

    The Som tum with peanuts is called Tum Thai. You can also limit the chillies they use - e.g. 2 chillies, 3 chillies.

    We live in the north and my wife found a vegetable at the market a few months ago that makes a very good sour salad. It looks a bit like a mango but very hard and you have to shave it like papaya. My favorite foods are the ones people serve at home and never make to restaurants or street stalls.

    And the fish covered in salt roasted over coals. Goes very well with the sour salad.

    had yum ta khai last night, and while not my favorite dish as such, it was quite enjoyable. all the ingredients were fresh. It had a perfect blend of sweet and spice.

    Kai Jiow Yot Sai is a egg dish I've run across occasionally. It's basically an omelet with ground pork and various veggies. Now I love omelets and never really found a good one here in Thailand. The first time I had this, I said "It's an omelet, a real omelet!". My wife and other Thais objected, saying that it was just a scrambled egg, but I know an omelet when I see one.

    I'm surprised that no-one mentioned nam prik ong? Maybe because it is a side dish? Although it can be very spicy, I enjoy it nevertheless, the same with any dish prepared in coconut milk :)

    Since when is Singapore chicken a Thai dish? My favorite is Khao Mok Gai served at the weekend market off Chaeng Wattana...for 35 baht. The complementary soup always has a joulienne of carrots, onions, and pakchi. ;-) Ice water is also complementary. I'll send a picture next week.

    This is a most delicious envelope. The samples of this dish I've tried are usually much smaller.
