Does Your Local Thai Restaurant Serve This?

Seen this mostly at places with few or no foreigner customers. No idea what it’s called because I can’t read Thai. I call it Fish and Fiber.



The combo of fish, rice and shrimp paste is pretty good but the veggies are forgettable. I order it only when it’s been too long since I ate more than a trivial amount of vegetables.

Starting at the end of the spoon handle and going clockwise, this version contains: 3 blanched vegetables – cabbage, baby corn, long beans, fried whole fish, a sort of egg foo young containing nothing but greens, 4 raw vegetables – cukes, long beans, ginger and eggplant, another fish & foo young. Hiding behind the shrimp paste cup is hard boiled egg.

Never tried the ginger or wanted more than a couple bites of eggplant. Raw long beans are more exercise than they’re worth.

      Almost anything. Still haven’t tried durian. Zero interest in anything that is eaten with its GI tract intact , e.g. worms, insects.

    The fish looks good but isnt the raw ginger really hot and strong ?
