Food in Thailand, and Rats Falling from the Ceiling!!

It is difficult for me to write a blog about Thai Food, because as soon as I discovered Massaman Curry that was pretty much all I ate. So it is a wonder that the below photos aren’t just a repeat of the same curry dish 9 times over 😉

Before I discovered Massaman, Green Thai Curry was my jam. (I mean it was my fave, not that I used it as a breakfast conserve on toast. That would be weird). I tend to stick to what I know I like, so I was rockin the Green Curry, which was delicious even though it was very hot and spicy.

My BF convinced me to try a new curry – Massaman. This was like a drug to me. I LOVED it! I lapped up every meal and couldn’t wait to get my next fix. To this day, it is my fave food in the whole wide world! 🙂 It is very flavoursome yet mild enough not to burn your tounge – the perfect blend.

We tried Pad Thai also, both in a restaurant and from a street food stall. It was actually better in the restaurant – on the street it was quite bland and we had to add our own spices, and we had no idea how much to add so we prob messed it up ourselves! 🙂

The most memorable meal was in a food court in a mall in Bangkok. We had a really lovely meal – Massaman Curry for me (what else?!). I was just finishing up when I saw something fall from the ceiling. I thought it was a leaf or something. My brain took a few seconds to make it out, and I was horrified when I realised it was a big RAT! It stood up, looked around, and darted off into the kitchen area.

I was FREAKING OUT! We were on the 5th floor of a large modern shopping mall, and there were industrial air-conditioner-type pipes above our heads, as is customary in lots of malls all over the world. But I didn’t expect rats to be there!! Maybe down a back alley by the bins, you’d expect rats, but not there!!  I was really uneasy being there with these pipes overhead in case another one came down! Urgh – it makes me shudder even when writing this!  There were 2 other Western couples on nearby tables, 1 American and 1 British. They had also seen it and the ladies from these couples were also freaked out. Needless to say, we all got up and left pretty soon. We told the staff, thinking they might offer us a discount, but they didn’t bat an eyelid.
