Photos From Daily Life In Thailand

Recommended Posts

When I first came here - 1973 - a friend and I took a couple of MP girls to a restaurant in front of the Scala Theatre in Siam Square. We ordered cheese burgers, the girls Thai food.

 

After dumping mustard and ketchup on the burgers, we picked them up and chomped down. Everyone in the restaurant stopped what they were doing and stared at us! Then we noticed the Thais were all eating their burgers with a knife and fork. The burgers' contents were spilling over their plates, but they kept hacking away. I suppose they thought we were eating like barbarians. :dunno:

 

It was the same thing with pizza when it made its appearance, knife and fork time.

Hi,

 

"It was the same thing with pizza when it made its appearance, knife and fork time. "

 

Still fairly common, I think. Surprising actually as many people upcountry are used to eating with their hands.

 

Sanuk!

My Mrs will never order sticky rice in a restaurant, says it is impolite to eat with your hands outside of home. Watch some time and you will see many Thais eating sticky rice with a fork in a restaurant.
