Thailand Shack Tours Smashing Food Retreat

So one of the main reasons we came to Thailand was for the street food. And also the cheap-ness of everything because STUDENT LOANS BABY. So anyway, I tried to document all the food which is hard considering I wanted to inhale everything as soon as I got my greasy paws on it.

I’ve given myself the vital task rating all the yummy little foods on three scales. Taste, experience and BM (bowel movement) scale.

Please enjoy my very professional review and mediocre photo edits!

(I’ve tried my best to title the foods and link the locations of the places but half the time I don’t know where I am or what I’m eating. Some foods have titles, some don’t. You’re welcome.)

Let’s get into it boys!

 

#1 & #2

Tom Yum Goong:

literally the only good photo I’ve ever taken

Taste: 10/10 oily, spicy, sour, a soft boiled egg and dumplings all singing in harmony like a church choir on Christmas Eve. Phenomenal, top 3 Bangkok foods. Zero complaints.

Experience: 6/10 (+) amazing food, (-) foreigner asking annoying foreigner questions ruining the vibe.

BM scale: 3/10 good day, normal

 

Some Omelette:

Taste: 8/10 soft omelette with ham and rice. Pretty standard. I love eggs.

Experience: 6/10 (+) amazing food, (-) foreigner asking annoying foreigner questions ruining the vibe

BM scale: 3/10 normal

P’Aor (ร้านพี่อ้อ)

Taste: 7/10 (+) hot & zingy, about 13 different unidentifiable flavors, (-) lots of full chilis, (-) molded rice

Experience: 9/10 (+) we watched Thai dramas while eating, (+) entire restaurant involved

BM scale: 4/10 looks bad, not bad

#4

Leo Beer

Attachment-1 (5)

Taste: 4/10 better than Cass, still worse than most

Experience: 7/10 (+) thai drama but (- ) ice in beer?

BM scale: 2/10, didn’t drink enough

I couldn’t find the name or address of this place but its right across the street from P’aor on Soi Petchaburi 5. It has bar seating outside with thousands of bottlecaps glued to the bar making it difficult to place drinks down. Otherwise a good time.

#5

Crispy coconut ball:

Attachment-1 (9)

Taste: 9/10 (+) sweet coconut nectar inside crispy ball, (-1) for green onions?

Experience: 9/10, (-) squirted hot coconut cream all over shirt and shoes, (+) very fun and hilarious

BM scale: 1/10 almost to no effect on regular poops

Again, Soi Petchaburi 5. Just a food stall non the same street as P’Aor we stumbled upon. You’ll be able to smell it.

#6 & #7

Taste: 5/10 (-) sliced cheese, mediocre, (-) waited 2 hours, (+) can’t really go wrong with grilled mussles

Experience: (+) pretty mall, (-) inside a mall, don’t really like eating inside or parsley sprigs

BM scale: 3/10 no noticeable difference

Siam Paragon

It’s in the food court somewhere but honestly I forgot where or what it’s called. But the meat sandwiches are sitting on a display in the front looking very nice and supple.

#12 & #13

IMG_7151

Taste: 9/10 (+) shack style thai food, no idea what it was. But there was eggs. Oily, fluffy eggs, spicy curry and rice

Experience: 9/10 (+) wonderful lady, unreadable menu; dirty pans; dirty water and firey shits. Amazing.  Went back twice.

Shit level: 15/10 bunghole burning, better have a book ready for the toilet type of poops. I mean fire down below, thunder down under toilet time. Don’t make plans for the day.

#14

Shack restaurant right across our hostel called Phobphanhostel.

Attachment-1 (8)

Taste: 9/10 (+) mild in spice but full of flavor, like a Thai chicken noodle soup. Mega relaxing to eat, I wanted to be sick just so I could eat this and feel better.

Experience: 9/10 second time here, (+) same wonderful lady, same unreadable menu; same dirty pans; same dirty water but no firey shits. Still amazing.

BM scale: 2/10 a relief

“uh the third one?” “yeah 60/70 is good odds.”

 

Welp! That’s it for now, my fingers are tired of editing pictures incorrectly and hitting the underline button (A Prachi insert: she doesn’t even know how) so many times. Hope you enjoyed reading and hearing about my travelers poops!

Basically, Morgan handed off the job to me (Prachi- who else) while lounging, drinking my coffee and saying “Uhg…finish it for me little Pumpkin Fritter”.

Tune in next time for:

Snacking in Korea…will it be sweet? Or will it be sweet?
