    David, hard boiled black eggs? Would you be talkin about fermented duck eggs? Available in the US and every where I think. In thailand they are pink {shelled} ..... pickled radish, garlic, greens, and of course, beer, singh, or chang., or kloster. Makes one think life is worth kickin....up and down and whatever...

    Re: Top 10 list of Thai Food!!!

    Interesting list, this Top 10 Thai Food for Foreigners.

    First, 'Satay' isn't even a Thai food - it is Indonesian, also a popular dish in Malaysia. Of course, in the country of origin it is chicken and not pork!

    Even 'Panaeng' curry, isn't Thai. It's origins are from the south of Thailand and again Indonesian/Malay food.

    Red Curry with Duck = well, i have hardly ever been to any Thai restaurants (in Thailand) which offer this dish. Red curry is of course popular in Thailand, but as for adding duck, seems more like a dish aimed at foreigners.

    Another dish on this top ten which is a little rare in Thailand is 'Chicken with Cashew Nuts'. Foreigners seem to like this dish more than Thais. It isn't a very popular dish with Thais. In fact, many of my Grade 4-5 students before had never heard of this dish!

    And finally, 'Phat Thai' - again, foreigners love this dish. But as for Thais themselves, i doubt that this would get in their Top Ten. Same goes for 'Coconut Soup with Chicken'.

    Uptoyou_inUdon mentioned Phat See Eu as his favourite dish. this dish isn't Thai though - Phat See Eu is Chinese food. David said 'Hard boiled black eggs' - those are Chinese too.

    When you get to the heart of things, a lot of stuff which is claimed Thai - isn't actually Thai at all.

    I don't think they are duck eggs, to me duck eggs are different shape to chicken eggs, bigger, and in blue shells. Theses eggs were normal chicken shaped and normal brown shells. When eaten the yellow and the white are a purpley-black colour and the 'white' can be 'seen through' if held to the light.

    When in Pattaya there is an old lady selling them at night who would find us most evenings wherever we may be. My wife and I were the only people I ever saw buy any.

    David, that's a new perspective on this type of egg. Don't think I'm familiar with them. Steven's post is, well, I think right on. As he mentioned in a very good post, fermented duck eggs are a chinese import. But, The thais sure know how to ferment them. The smell can overtake a farang. The yolk, which is now a very black color, is sweet. If you can get past what is perceived to be, well,.....

    I think as a foreigner that if you go to a country and eat something you have never heard of anywhere else then you naturally assume it is a dish of that country.

    In Indian restaurants in the UK the most popular dish is chicken tikka masala, this is a dish unheard of in the Indian sub-continent - it was invented in Glasgow in the late 1960s.

    david...are for real? here in aussie you can buy a "patoks" range of kapong indian sauces, one of which is chicken masala..just goes to show doesnt it? never really know what is authentic and what isnt unless you have actually been to the country in question......much like thai food...so many westerners say they love thai food but have never actually tried it in its true enviroment...............
