A Guide to the 37 Most Weird Foods...Waiting To Surprise You In Thailand

A Guide to the 37 Most Weird Foods...Waiting To Surprise You In Thailand
From Ant Eggs...To Water Bugs
Every visitor to Thailand is interested in the country’s ubiquitous bug carts. Those cute two wheel trolleys pushed along the night streets by smiling vendors selling – well, selling bugs. Their usual menu runs the gamut from grasshoppers to scorpions. But bugs as a gourmet treat are only the most obvious of the many food challenges awaiting unwary visitors. Other surprising ingredients range from dancing shrimp to rats.
Even apparently harmless dishes, like a soup, a salad or a glass of water, can be dangerous for the unsuspecting.
Surviving Thai Cuisine will guide you past most of the main culinary minefields. At the same time, it also offers an introduction to Thai food generally and to many other aspects of Thai culture.

Dual English & Thai
The Land of Smiles has many attractions to the overseas visitor, but none more powerful or better appreciated around the world than the alluring smiles of the young ladies working in its many bars.

The magnetic draw of beautiful, lissome Thai bar girls sees tens of thousands of westerners arrive, phrase books in hand – and confusion reigning from the moment they try to engage in meaningful conversation with their new-found ‘best friends’.

Communications breakdowns in such situations are the norm, rather than the exception – and they are multi-faceted, their roots and tentacles reaching far beyond simple linguistic barriers.

Love Talk takes a humorous look at some of the communications barriers faced by westerners enjoying for the first time the delights of long nights sipping cold beers in the company of warm-hearted women eager to get to know them better. With an insightful nod to the cultural divide that separates the typical western bar-lover and his new Thai girlfriend, Love Talk fills in the blanks and settles a few scores along the way.
