Thailand Part II


The Thai food we ate in restaurants was amazing. You could wander into any restaurant (and there were a TON!) and have an incredible meal. This was pork and pineapple fried rice which was perfect. The presentation everywhere we went was amazing as well. Because of Thailand's unique political history (the only Southeast Asian country to never be colonized by the west) it has a very rich cultural heritage that allows for a completely unique cuisine. Much of the other food we had in Southeast Asia, while different to us westerners, was much the same in Singapore and Malaysia. When you cross over to Thailand everything changes. Everything is distinct. And incredibly delicious.

Funny you should ask... I'm planning on making a version of it tonight for dinner. Except I'm going to replace the pork with shrimp. I'll let you know how it turns out :)
