I'm afraid I don't like Thai food

lost squirrel | Nov 12, 2007 04:14 PM

I'm heading to Bangkok and Pattaya later this month for about 4 or 5 days and I'm not sure I'm going to enjoy myself.

In the US, I tend to like some thai food, specifically the wide rice noodles with a soy/spicy sauce (Called 'drunken noodles' at one place I used to frequent). I detest pad thai in the US, so sweet and bland.

Here in Tokyo, the thai food is so sour it makes my lips pucker. I'm not a fan.

What can I expect from authentic Thai food ? What are some dishes I should make an effort to try?

I'm planning on Polo Fried Chicken one day, but other than that I have no ideas. My travel companion is Thai himself so we'll be able to find anything.
