There’s a new butcher shop between my house and work that opened half a year ago. They sell pork only. The quality of meat is better than anywhere else, and the prices are cheaper as well… So I’m in there a couple times a week.
Most Thais do not like the well-marbled cuts that I go after, so there are usually a few choice ones in the displays. The staff will also go get whatever you want from the back, if it’s not on display.
I asked them about a whole pig last week, and they gave me a number to call… I’m toying with the idea of a barbecue pit. Just need to find a steady supply of my favorite lamyai wood.

What’s the Thai word for “luau”?
(I bet it’s “luau.”)
Hawaiian culture is almost completely unknown here and there is probably no equivalent. The funny thing is that many formal dinners here are feasts and there is often music and dancing to entertain guests, especially from overseas. Googling for examples shows that, indeed, they use the word “luau” as is, in English.
