    Ingredients in thai food that you don`t like.

    Apart from Plaa Rah, that is....

    1) For me it is coconut milk. I find it sickening sweet and nauseous.

    2) I don`t like peanuts in my Tam Thai papaya salat and I don`t like cashew nut in cashew nut dishes...

    3) Sugar. The extensive use of sugar or sugar cane extracts in dishes really puts me off too.

    Phat Phak Plioaw Waan, sweet and sour veggies.
    This dish is not sweet and sour, it is sweet to the extent that I would rather have a lollipop or two.

    I dislike salty food as well, but I never found that was a problem in Thailand only in my country of origin.

    ^^ Isaan eggplant, apparently- but nothing like any eggplant I know. For a start, they grow on trees (ew grow them). Not real fond of 'em either, but I'll have them.
    Pla rah is about the only Thai ingredient I outright reject.
    Don't get the Thai habit of adding sugar to noodle soups either, but that is simply avoided- I just don't add it. Other dishes, you get no choice- they add it anyway, during cooking. A lady around here does a lovely pad ka phao, save for one thing- too bloody sweet, cloyingly so. Easily handled though- got the wife to have a word in her ear "no sugar for the f'rang, please". Sorted.

    Yeah, me neither.

    When you purchase a dried Plaa Mor, giant gurami, fry it on a pan in oil, your entire place will smell like a morgue with no cooling installed..

    Coriander. I fucking hate it when it's included in a spicy salad, or anything else come to that.

    The snot and hair one finds i pubic market train food etc it detracts from the insect with rotte fish sauce.

    Seriously I got used to all of it and do try anything once despite Oscar Wilde's advice .I actually like the laarb and spicy Esaan food howver the after effects are not for childrens comic like this, suffice to say I can inflate my own bike the next day once Ive removed the bedclothes from the fan !

    Osacr the shirtlifter said try anything bar incest and folk dancing, he found out the hard way the Marquess of Queensbury Rules
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    Technically, the Isaan/Thai variety of what is referred to as eggplant doesn't really belong to the family of nightshade, but a sub-species of cultivar mostly native to SE Asia and regions of South Asia. มะเขือเปราะ

    Nothing close to a chickpea.
    A "pea aubergine" is a distant cousin of the makhuea phuang.

    Not a legume, rhizome, etc - but a vegetable.

    Squirrels.
    Not that they taste bad... it,s just the thought of it.
    I have eaten and do eat dog though.
    I still maintain the best food in Thailand is McThai.
