    I think this is down to there being 2 different species, the Brown rat and the Black rat that carries Bubonic plague, and unlike the Brown rat, can climb trees. Both occur in Asia.

    Ooops! I don't know if you made a spelling error there, or assumed I had in the recipe, but it isn't knotweed you require but khotweed (with an 'h').

    Khotweed is a perennial marsh or aquatic herb and is known as 'Water Pepper', and in Thailand is known as 'Phak Phai Nam'.

    Better not go trying the old Japanese Knotweed then.

    Oh yeah, I read it wrong there. Should be easier to find in that case, without going all the way to Japan.

    Definitely the rats that live in the rice fields wouldn't last long if they were let loose in the city.
    In terms of food, field and city rats is like comparing grasshoppers to cockroaches.

    I have read stories where people died after eating city rats. It is scary to say the least.
