About once a month, I need to make a mile-or-so walk to the pet food store for dry cat food. It’s an easy enough walk, rock and roll in the headsets, and today a happy hour drink in a Coke bottle to keep me company.
When I make this walk, I often try to dovetail on the fact I will be passing the fresh market and lots of street food vendors. There’s usually some kind of food that will be of interest.
Today, I stopped at a popup restaurant almost back at my house, a Thai couple just getting the stand operational. I was their first customer of the evening.
Given that portions often are small here, and with the possibility I might be sharing later, I decided to go “all in” and order three dishes.
The first was a pork omelette that I thought would be good as a starter (35 baht/$1 – pictured at left). I added two other pork dishes with rice, pork and basil on right. The third dish was a stir-fried pork dish.
Total bill for 3 meals – 140 baht/less than $5.
The omelette, with some soy sauce for salt, was delicious. It came on a bed of white rice.
