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 trying with the idea of a barbecue pit. Just need to find a steady supply of my favorite lamyai wood.
We had cool weather during our entire trip back home to Southern California. Coming back to Thailand was like waking up every day in a slow cooker. During the hot days, many cats just lay down on their backs and enjoy a long siesta until evening. Well, maybe not just cats.
Excellent balance of flavors and clever use of banana leaf on flat plate instead of bowl. Sometimes the classics need a reboot.
Its called the Three Dollar or Less Beer Bonanza (Eastern European Edition):
How many of these beers do you know?
How many can you try while packing suitcases last minute?
Even in the land of endless beaches, this is a special one.
Mad props to this guy… Dickon mos def.
As a side note, these retro color scheme (yellow on black) license plates in CA are super popular, but seem strange to me when put on new cars.
What I wouldn’t do to bring the Crown here someday… My brother in law bought a cherry ’64 GTO convertible with a nice crate V8, perfect inside and out, and all I could think was… I miss my Crown.
But there are so many basic types and specific variants, as well as imported and domestically produced brands, it’s mind-boggling. Referring to any specific type as just “fish sauce” could be quite disastrous, depending on the context (who put pla dak in the nam pla?).
Bonus shot: Ultra dope station wagon in the Costco parking lot.
At a pond full of turtles and one giant carp.
LOL!! Look at this happy boy!
