I believe it was the pet goat Nancy as this vendor was obviously goatless now.
Hey, I may have eaten a turtle but skip ate the beatles. Vendors peddle insects on specific carts. Everything you see on Fear Factor, you can get right here on the street. We tasted the Larvae, beetles, Cocoons, Frogs and we each ate a cooked Scorpion . Tasted like a poptart.
For all of you who love seafood as we do, you would be in paradise here. I swear we have ordered whole fish that we didn't know what kind it was and it all tasted pretty decent.
Sometimes the waiter would ask how many prawns we would like and he looks in amazement when we order 12 each. These prawns are huge, out of 12 I think we can barely finish 5 of them. Sooo good. We also treat our pallettes to lobster which can never quite fit on our plates. I have never seen lobster this size. Everything is swimming too before we order and yes we get to pick our dinner from a fish bowl as well.
Thai food is as a rule spicy, sometimes you just burn sitting there and all the rolaids in the world can't help you.
There is the typical fast food joints here, Burger King, McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts , KFC, and 7-11's are on every block. We took the girls to Mcdonals in Bangkok one day and they just didn't care for hamburgers and Fries. Neither did we and we stuck to Thai cuisine after that.
Here we eat roughly 7 times a day , usually fruit and veggies leaving one substantial feast for the evening. Food is cheap and extremely plentiful. It's rare to spend 50 bucks on a seafood feast with drinks for 4. We always tell the girls to order whatever they want and as much as they want yet it seems they only ever order a small veggie dish with rice while Skip and I gorge on King shrimps, and whole crabs by the dozens. I'm a little tired of rice, after all, we eat it every day... with chop sticks too.
