    Re: What is the most unusual food you've ever tried in Thailand?

    I wonder if putting salt in beer is more of a warm climate thing?

    I never got accustomed to sugar in my noodles and stir fried with my veggies. One of the first things I learned to say in Thai was, no sugar, no msg, no meat (in my soup)please. If I eat meat I want to be able to immediately identify it so I can make an informed decision. So no luk chein (sp?) for me, and no blood.

    Rori, I used to put salt in my cola when I was a kid.Don't know why I did,but probably seen someone done it before.
    Nam phyyng and Susana, I do eat some fruits with salt and dried pepper flakes พริกกับเกลือ it's called in Thailand. I don't find it unusual and it makes fruit sweeter.
    Visionchaser, I've never tried those,but I imagine them to be little french fries?

    I could never get used to sugar on my meals and constantly complained to my wife when she did it. I gave up adding sugar to anything over 40 years ago.

    Strawberries with salt-sounds nasty- but is great-particularly with the small sweet organic strawberries you get in the North of Thailand round about now.

    Re: What is the most unusual food you've ever tried in Thailand?

    I just remembered this one thing I had many years ago in the jungle near Trad province,eastern part of Thailand. It was bamboo rice ข้าวขุยไผ่. Old bamboos 30 years+ depends on species will blossom once before it die. Flowers turn into tiny seeds which look almost identical to rice with its brown shell still attached. After removing shell,bamboo rice is cooked the same way as you would regular rice,often in a small bamboo or sometimes wrapped in banana leaves. I don't remember the exact flavor though but it was delicious in the middle of the jungle.

    Tell me,what you've tried or planning to try.
    Enjoy Eating!

    At a restaurant inside Suan Lum Night Bazaar my husband and I have tried crocodile steak. The texture was very similar to chicken breast.Just pure white meat.
    In Pitsanulok, my husband got to taste Thousand year old egg ไข่เยี่ยวม้า and he was not impressed hahaha also he tried grass jelly เฉาก๊วย in syrup with shaved ice,which he thought it shouldn't be considered as food.
