    A Tribute To The Beauty of 'Moo Gob'

    After spending the best part of a month nibbling on foodstuffs that would leave a bulemic rabbit thoroughly unsatisfied, I woke up this morning and exclaimed 'FUCK THIS DIET BULLSHIT'. Indeed I had a hankering for the king of Asian cuisine - the undisputed, unfloundering champion of the Thai menu - ladies and gentlemen, fighting out of old lady Waraporn's makeshift kitchen, I give you Mooooo Gobbbbb.
    Actually, if this was to be spelt phonetically correctly it would translate into something more like Moo Grawp, but folk in my social circles would see that as an attempt at being patronising and promptly beat you into a coma with an old flip-flop before robbing you of all your possessions, conducting a home invasion on your premises and kidnapping your children..so it's probably best to pronunce it as the layman would..

    Hence - Moo Gob

    To start proceedings, here's a quick youtube video of how to prepare it..

    The History of Moo Gob

    During the Spring of the Ayutthya Period, a weathered harlot called Waraporn Wincealot had the misfortune of attracting the attentions of an infamous philanderer who was known widely as 'Lau Kao Bob'. After several weeks of spurning his amorous advances, Waraporn eventually resigned herself to become a member of Bob's harem and was subsequently subjected to series of violent and demeaning sexual encounters.
    After a year of this Waraporn finally decided she'd suffered enough anal passage assaults to last her a life time and quickly started planning an exit strategy from the 'realtionship'. Initially she tried to flee in the middle of the night, only to find herself caught at the hands of 'Ya-Dong Pete', a business associate of Bobs. Naturally this led to a heightened amount of abuse and her misery peaked.
    Further attempts to conclude the relationship included rat poison in rice soup (Bob appeared to be impervious to even the most liberal dousing) and a beating with a thick bamboo cane during two days of a lau kau incited coma (again, Bob appeared to be invincible).

    It dawned on Waraporn one morning whilst she stitched her anus back together using some dental floss, a sharpened twig and a mirror, that she would have to play a long patient game. Being an excellent cook she would use her skills in the kitchen and prepare her husband a dish so unhealthy but at the same time so desparately devine that after a year or so he would succumb to a massive stroke or heart attack and leave her in peace.

    Hence, moo gob was born and after 15 months of perpetually grazing on it, Lau Kao Bob grew so large and bloated that he actually shat the entirety of his innards out with the aid of a squat convenience.

    Waraporn's wish had come true and her new dish became an integral part of the Siamese dining experience.

    True story..

    Moo Gob - mmm. Probably my favourite street dish is 'pad kapow moo gob' fatty pork shown above with basil chilli and beans with oyster and fish sauce.

    Having done some research on the dish, it appears to be alive and well in the western world.

    I never thought I associate Moo Gob and Nouvo Cuisne..but here it is, and can be found in a Thai Restaurant in an affluent suburb of Sydney, Australia..

    So resisting to the urge to dine on something as prolificly calorific as water is to the Pacific, I swerved my way past the myriad dragon fruit and custard apple stalls, not given them a second look, and raced on towards my local 'restaurant' where I promptly ordered the Pad Karapow Moo Gob..

    I wasn't impressed with what the serving wench dished up, to be frank - not crispy enough and void of any real flavour...not to mention the egg..

    So, deep fried pork fat essentially. I can hear my arteries clanging shut just thinking of it....

    This is one of the more popular moo gob dishes in Thailand..

    Served with Chinese kale:



    Personally I'm not adverse to adding it to a yam - or spicy salad..

    What's so bad about deep fried fat.

    The world economy has gone to hell, the Muzzies are taking over, the Chinks are coming, climate change will fry society and your wife is prolly cheating on you. And one or two other interesting things. Wanna grow old, drooling and have someone wipe your ass?

    Better than fuckin jumping aint it?

    All that is missing is STS's suggestion for the accompanying beverage.

    My local shop didn't have any, so I ended up having a rack of baby pork ribs instead. An adequate substitute I do have to say.

    The moo meal pics look quite enticing although i never eat pork, not because of religious reasons, it's just that i've never seen a slim pig.
