    Favourite Thai/Issan Meal

    What is your favourite Thai/Issan Meal?

    Mine used to be Pad Grapao Gai (chicken), but I have ventured out and tried many new things and have to say I now have an Obession with Laab Moo (pork) with Khao Neao (Sticky Rice). Laab has a lot of different flavour (compared to western food) and I have to admit I did not like it the first time i tried it. It has Mint, Corriander, Lemon, Onion, Powdered rice, Fish sauce and a lot of Chilli (of course). IMO it makes a great combination and being able to eat it with your hands and the Sticky Rice just tops it off in my book.

    I found when in Thailand there were days where we would eat this for 3 meals a day and then I was introduced to Laab Tort. This is the same thing but it has been deep fried. It is different to the standard Laab but still have the same flavours. These are Traditionary Issan dishes, but I have been able to find them in most Thai Restaurants these days.

    Same Cilla.... but pork!
    Something about it on a hot day how it's so refreshing.

    It's funny G4... when I saw you started this thread I already knew what your dish would be! 555

    I'm quite partial to fish homok. Don't really have a favourite though.

    Pad kapow, khao soy, pad see ew, even the ubiquitous pad thai. The list goes on. Probably easier to list what I don't like.

    I'm not that keen on banana roti. Is that even Thai?

    Got caught out in BKK. Out for lunch and had to go to loo, A ordered for me, "Pork ok chai mai ". "Fine fine" I say and rush off. Come back and food ready, aroy mak. When I asked what it was she showed me the menu and pointed, "Pork balls and pork intestines" I say, just a big smile from A. Aroy mak, starting to try new things now after that. Somethings not quite yet......

    Jo makes the most amazing soups which have to be eaten with a combination of spoon, fork and fingers. Her Tom Yum Goong is just awesome, so full of flavour(s) and not so phet phet that you can't disseminate each one.

    Another one, equally as tasty and made with meaty pork bones, is Tom Sap Moo.

    Cheers, Rob.

    Not so much the food but the atmosphere for me.

    So different from BKK to real Issan.

    Ant control noted ... Isaan was bad but I think CM is even worse! What was being dried... fish or chili ... ?

    I love cooking over charcoal on those claypot bdq's, so versatile I think they'd be a big hit in the west, but too heavy to ship Do any TG's in Oz use the lightweight hubcap/Isaan suki cookers?

    I've seen some Korean-style solid brass hubcab/hibachi cookers (also woks) similar to this > Want To Korean Barbeque A Brass Monkey? This Is What To Use | Estate Store The ones I've seen are highly polished and fairly expensive, also expensive to ship!

    Should be able to get at a bigger Asian market not to hard otherwise the next best thing or maybe better is the Korean BBQ that is electric.
    Big bowl for soup and a flat BBQ disc in the centre.

    Worst thing about eating Thai food regularly is that it makes your breath stink. Some of the girls are terrible and farangs too!

    We go through ~ 1kg of garlic each week ... the small local ones sure are powerful, phet phet, but Jo loves eating them raw with meals.
