    Yeh, you have to watch it sometimes with those roadside places!

    Went to one in Chiang Mai last year and they gave me what was obviously the “tourist menu”, with loads of western stuff on it. Being a smart arse, I pointed to what the thai dude on the next table was eating and said I’d have one of them – it was a pretty impressive looking stew/curry thing with a spirit burner under it keeping it warm.

    Fucking hell, was the hottest thing I’ve ever eaten, about 20 of those mega hot green chillis, and the meat in it turned out to be chickens’ feet (about 20 of them!).

    I tried to like the chickens feet but really couldn’t – not chewy, but like eating really thick chicken skin, and you have to fiddle around with it in your mouth cos they’re full of tiny bones and claws. I’m not sure what they do with the meat of the chicken over there, probably stockpot it or something!

    So if you see one of these while you’re in Thailand, give it a wide berth. Unless you’re a fan of pain.

    sounds like process is turning Asian 🙂

    There was this proper funny story in one of the Malaysia Airlines in flight magazines about this Chinese woman (then in here 40s) who met a English husband and emigrated from Malaysia to Liverpool in the 1970s.

    She arranged for her mum who was very independent to visit England for the first time, and her mum went to the local market, wanting to buy food for a family dinner. She bought a chicken on the market, and ended up loudly berating the Scousers for ripping her off as it didn’t have any feet on it! In the end they had to find a a bobby to explain to her that in England chicken feet are not normally eaten…

    BTW SE Asian chicken processing involves hacking the bird into smaller pieces than in the West, this is done with a fucking great cleaver (don’t worry, they do make sure the bird is dead first!).

    In 1994 the end of Ramadan (celebrated as Hari Raya in Malaysia) coincided with Chinese New Year and every chicken in the country got eaten – this caused a national emergency and the Army brought in extra birds from Thailand and Indonesia (there is some sort of mutual aid agreement across SE Asia for when things like this happen).

    strange as thats exactly what happens to dan the man from lunar/disruption, he does look Middle Eastern/European gets called Afghan Dan and all sorts of other less PC names, but he was born and brought up in Suffolk!

    Incidentally he is travelling along with Scouse and Boshman and a few others at the moment, they were starting from India and hoping to get to SE Asia, that would be really random if you all ended up meeting…

    I like the chicken feet without the bones, and they come in some weird red sauce (I think it might be sweet chilli). 😀
