Land of Smiles

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Thats the problem with eating thai food outside Thailand, they dont only use the ingredients that are supposed to go in it but what ever they wish.

real dish, PS, one of my favorites...

This is defiantly one of my favoured Thai dishes too. Best about these kind of foods, they can be eaten and enjoyed at any time of day. In Thailand, many times I would have for breakfast. Cost there at the time 20-30baht. There is also plenty of servings here in KK where at times I now eat for supper, price per dish start at around 5000reil. Nigel and his Thai lady have recently opened The Tavern bar and restaurant in KK town, the dish can be found there and is superbly cooked and served at just under $5. :beer3:

Not lying but a pad Thai with no meat is closer to 15X than the price of it in Los in Oz than Thailand.

Even a can of coke in 7/11 runs up to 10X the price here in Oz.

I don't think one can get any food for 25 baht here in Thailand anymore, I frequent the moo-baan and baan-nok very often I couldn't remember seeing any 25 baht meal. My office is in the outskirt of Bangkok north to be precise I've not seen any 25 baht meals here too.
