Warm salt pork salad with mind and onions and little hot things.

And those onions were wicked spicy while not being "oniony."

NOTE Readers, what do want from food pr0n posts, anyhow? Any blogs that are your favorites?

I'm not sure, picture, taste, what is that you're eating, and the price in dollars because I'm to lazy to figure it out myself;) I doubt I'll ever get there but I do a question are you using Thailand money or dollars?

...฿30 to the dollar is close enough for government work(it's actually about ฿32/dollar).
฿1 = $0.031.

This dish was 100 baht, or around $3.00. If I could buy it in the US, it would be a lot more expensive than double, too.

...canna pla kem. Canna is kale, pla kem is salted fish. Delicious. It's stir fried.

...a couple of days before I left for Thailand. I had green curry with chicken over rice for lunch. That was $5. For dinner the same dish was $7.50. That was 11 years ago and it wasn't a highly regarded restaurant, just good.
Today, here, that lunch would be about $1.25 (฿40).
Also, as previously mentioned; you are ordering a single dish, not over rice, which is higher price than over rice, because a single dish has more ingredient. When we go to dinner my wife and I always order at least a couple of single dishes which we split.
I highly recommend fried chicken with cashews with a side dish of rice.
In Thai; Phat (fried) gai (chicken) met ma muang (cashew).
