    I think Thai soups and curries are better than the other stuff.

      Panang curry and Tom Yum soup are the best Thai foods. Pad Thai is insanely overrated

          I had some panang curry for the first time about 2 weeks ago. A bit too sweet imo but pretty good. I still think drunken noodles are the best.

      pretty much this

      don't know many thai dishes but curries and various tom kha / tom yam soups are great and i make them every now and then
      some of the ready soup bases i have tried have tasted horrible and chemical-like though. if those were the first ones i tried then i wouldn't probably be eating thai soups at all

    Thai food is only good when served in a bowl. Any other crockery, so the nation believes, is meant for cattle feed.

    Look at the poop colored slop you were served. My grandma used to put that into our pigs' troughs

      Thai food is fantastic, but in my experience, many Thai restaurants suck cheetah balls.

        This is kinda true if you can find an actual good thai restaurant you will feel as though your cheetah balls are being sucked by a hot thai ladyboy

    https://www.foodandwine.com/why-are-there-so-many-thai-restaurants-7104115

    The country of Thailand subsidies anyone who wants to open up a Thai restaurant. In the majority of cases, you'll have immigrants or even just white homies who aren't Thai/have no idea what Thai food is or should taste like opening up Thai restaurants to get free money. Then moronic people eat at these dogshit restaurants but they're too timid to complain because that's how the food industry works nowadays, and at best the leave snarky reviews on yelp that the majority of people won't see, but most of the time they just don't come back, so this means there's always a new crop of gullible people willing to give shitty """Thai""" restaurants a try, despite the fact that they've been burned over and over again.

            I just skim to the important parts, idgaf about an author's trials and tribulations, I have no idea why they include that bullshit. But her being Thai American doesn't change the fact that the info she provides is true. Thailand does subsidize Thai restaurants, and this has caused there to be way more of them when compared to the total demographics of Thai people in the US. I guarantee you, the owner of the Thai restaurant near you has never been from Thailand/doesn't know a single thing about Thai cooking. They're most likely Chinese or Korean.

              It's because she's a woman, a child of immigrants so she can't live with the fact she's as Americanized as many Asian dishes, and a journalist.
              >They're most likely Chinese or Korean
              That's just true for any Asian restaurant in the USA. They know most Americans can't actually tell the difference between Asians, nor do they really care if they're getting "Asian" cuisine whether it's genuine or not.

          Firstly, get a glass of water, ma'am. The menopause can cause hot flushes. Secondly, calm down. Such feminine anger is hard to control and can also causes hot flushes.

        bro, ladyboys aren't considered "trans" in Thailand.
        Don't let your envy of Americans make you stupid.
        >Kathoey or katoey (Khmer: ខ្ទើយ; khtəəy, Lao: ກະເທີຍ; ka thœ̄i, Thai: กะเทย; RTGS: kathoei; Thai pronunciation: [kàtʰɤːj]) is an identity used by some people in Cambodia, Laos and Thailand, whose identities in English may be best described as transgender women in some cases, or effeminate gay men in other cases. These people are not traditionally transgender, however are seen as a third sex, being one body containing two souls. Transgender women in Thailand mostly use terms other than kathoey when referring to themselves, such as phuying (Thai: ผู้หญิง, 'woman'). A significant number of Thai people perceive kathoey as belonging to a separate sex, including some transgender women themselves.[1]

            Then why do you waste so much time on an American website, communicating in American English with American people? Does your little country not have a website where you can discuss how much you hate Americans and America in your own language?

    the overly sweetened, bland food you get from certain thai restaurants sucks wiener
    but the good shit is the perfect balance of sweet, salty, savory, funky, tangy, and spicy

      Despite my area having a well amount of Thai restaurants, only one place serves angel wings. Despite that I like them quite a bit. I wouldn't really compare them to get hot wings though. They're fried and have more of a crisp.
