I have never eaten so many raw vegetables until I came to Thailand. I found it so weird at first to eat raw cabbage, eggplant, and string beans but I eventually got the hang of it. I have come to realize that these raw veggies usually come with a very hot and spicy meal or sauce, so it helps neutralize the taste. Not to mention that raw vegetables are usually sweet and crunchy so it gives your spicy meal an added flavor.
We have a joke that we are like goats eating grass when we are served with Thai food and those leaves+ raw vegetables. It’s just good that Thais don’t understand our language so we could laugh our hearts out without being understood!
If you want to know what I am talking about, here are photos to prove to you that we have indeed become goats in this country!
I told you we have become grass eaters! Me-eh-eh!
Oops! Did I just sound like a goat?!
