Adventures In Fine Dining


I arrived in Thailand on the birthday of the King, which augers well, although the weather is wet and humid; Bladerunner-ish. Hitting a Thai night market looking for something unusual to eat, it seemed there were no grasshoppers or grubs, so perhaps they’re regarded more as Malaysian or Cambodian delicacies, but I did tackle pig snouts and tails, quail eggs fried in chilli and hot vinegar and pots of searing chilli-steamed crab.

Hopefully my next stop should yield some interesting fish, although last week a bunch of Korean tourists died after eating the roe from horseshoe crabs, which can contain Tetradotoxin.

    Chatuchack weekend market in Bangkok is where you’ll find the fried grasshoppers if you are still hungry.
