The above items were purchased at the MBK mall in Bangkok, Thailand. I loved the system they had in place for the purchases. You bought credits for food on card, which eliminated the hassle of money exchange (coins and all). I purchased the duck, veggies and rice with a side of soup for 65 baht and the tapioca noodles dessert for 35 baht. The mango sticky rice (purchased by Brenna) was smothered with coconut milk and the sticky rice each had a distinct taste and color.
Differences between food chains in America and Thailand. McDonald's is a prime example. Our normal pies would include apple, cherry and other similar fruits. Here in Thailand, They have corn, pineapple and even a "Curry crab sticks pie". What seems bizarre to us is relative! I love spotting the differences between the states and here! Adventures everywhere...
Almost every little food shop in Thailand has a cute mascot associated with it. Mr. Bun was both cute and delicious!
Japanese food is very prevalent in Thailand due to the strong Japanese ties to Thailand's resources. The Japanese food at "Yayoi" was fresh and piping hot when it came out and when we entered, the servers shouted a "welcome guests" in Japanese. As you can see, the presentation was lovely and what I thought was very impressive is that they put a small metal tray under the fried pork cutlet to keep it crispy. That was very conscious of them. I really appreciate the small details. Also, their mascot was a cute black pig! I saw a commercial for this restaurant on the Skytrain and it was hilarious. I was glad I was able to try this place after I saw it.
