    Larb Ped (duck salad) is a particular favor of mine.
    Buy some deep fried grasshoppers from a street cart, as a beer snack.
    Have the standard office workers lunch of somtam Thai, fried or grilled chicken & sticky rice at least once. Don't even dream of touching Isaan somtam.
    Thai noodle soups are excellent, if you avoid those ghastly meatballs.
    Oyster omelette is worth a try- although really a southern chinese dish.
    Try a 'jungle curry' too, When you live overseas you might get the idea that all Thai curries have coconut milk, not so- my clan hate the stuff. Don't order this one spicy, unless you have a cast iron gut.
    Belly pork stir fried with kale and a thick soy (or Chinese style, oyster sauce) is nice, and a common dish.
    Try a raw beef salad too- for the virgin stomach, you'll likely prefer the 'dry' version, without blood, than the wet.

    The Thais are not uncivilised savages like the Chinese are, so you'd be better off staying there if you want to eat endangered animals (after torturing them fist, of course).

    Depends where you are going, but I do know that in Chiang Mai you can enrol for a reasonable price on a cookery course. They'll take you down the market first and teach you about the produce on offer, then they take you into the kitchen and teach you how to cook it.

    Far more satisfying when you cook it yourself, and the added bonus is that if you find something you really like, you can cook it yourself when you get home (subject to availability of ingredients).

    This one gets very good reviews:

    If you're elsewhere, I'm sure you can find local versions.

    Pad Krapow Gai, Kai Dow. (That's chopped chicken fried with holy basil and a fried egg on top served with rice, like most Thai food it's simple and a staple diet)

    You would be better off asking where to eat rather than what to eat, and you'd still get a multitude of answers. You'll soon get through most of the menu and find out what dishes you prefer, it's then a choice of what cook does it best.

    I'm partial to a chicken mamasan curry, but again you get some that are far better than others.

    Here's some info onThai food http://teakdoor.com/view.php?pg=thai_recipes
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    Won't sober you up as quick as plate of Yam Pah Mung. (spicy squid salad)

    Takes 10 minutes for the flames to die down after, but damn it clears your head

    Girlfriend said it might be this, but Sabang would know better.

    I reckon the simple Thai dishes like Moo Tod Med Mung-muang, fried pork with vegetables and peanuts are amongst the best foods to eat here.

    The curries are shit hot but the simple everyday foods that don't cost the earth are bloody luvly.

    I also like Hoi Lai phad prik pow.

    I also very rarely eat fried rice (Khao Phad) with other Thai dishes as it spoils the taste and prefer to have plain rice (Khao Suway) as the meal base.
