    "Different" Thai foods you have eaten!

    I'll start,

    The fil caught a cobra snake and brought it home for dinner.
    He chopped and skinned it like a master butcher and offered me the still beating heart to swallow!
    I can safely say that this experience is the closest a man can get to feeling pregnant(the beating heart in the belly)

    What different foods have you eaten in Thailand?

    It's only different if you insist on it being different.

    BTW I think you can score brownie points as a farang in the market when you walk around like a gormo showing part of your huge Thai vocabulary by exclaiming " waaan mak "

    Frog soup with whole little frogs about the size of my thumb.

    Though feeling queasy, I was polite and told the hosts the soup was good. They were so excited, they served it again a few months later when I visited.

    Pig skin stew.
    All day simmering.....softens the skin to a gelatinous-like consistency.
    Add savoury dog meat and assorted vegetable matter.

    ARROY!!

    I had some bush meat Thai porcupine once it was good. Didn't know what it was until I saw the kids running around with the quills!

    Steamed Bee or Wasp larvae. That was disgusting. The fried ones weren't bad though tasted nutty.

    I also had that frog soup with the little frogs cut in half. I couldn't eat the head parts but it was tasty.
    I'm not saying it was Aliens, but it was Aliens!

    Related, eggs/larvae from mot daeng are taken and consumed regularly amongst country folk - generally adding a citrusy quality to most everything it's mixed with.

    Quite nice...

    kudos.

    I would have had to sink a bath tub sized portion before trying that...

    Rat - well it was actually in Laos and the result of a bit of a misunderstanding but drowned in a spicy noodle soup I just assumed it was, well, chicken or something.

    Have had rat many times here. Love it. Pan fried is best with rice. Also the quail they catch on the tapioca farms is my favorite.
