grunching,

Tyler, off a plate i'd use a fork, i really need the bowl and shovel technique with chopsticks for rice. I can do it off a plate with chopsticks but for convenience sake I'll use a fork.

This is my strategy for eating any food when I'm given chopsticks.

I've been in inner Thailand. No one wants to eat actual Thai dishes.

I'm not sure what this means........

But let me say this... Fried rice is very much a stand alone meal in Thailand. I can't comment on how the fried rice is at places in the states is, but I would imagine it is fine. I will say that the food at most american Thai restaurants is similar to what is found over here, and sometimes better.

Any donkey who claims crap like "It's not authentic Thai food" is likely just trying to sound smart.

I actually was in Thailand for 12 months in 1966-7.

There was no fried rice then. Fried rice is mostly for Americans. This dish has probably been added in the last two generations. Authentic Thai dishes are too spicy hot for most Americans.

I used to go to this place in NYC's chinatown that had mostly chinese people eating at it. When me and my ex-g/f would go in the waitress would come over and give us a dirty look and say "you want fork?" and when we said no, she would smile and be all nice to us.

This doesn't relate to your question, but I wanted to share since I'm bored

tdarko you come off as someone that takes pride in having knowledge about Thai food. As others have pointed out, many of the authoritative statements you have made are just plain wrong. I'm also amazed by some of the comments your buddy that "goes to Thailand every year for 3 months" made. Anyone with experience in Thailand could spot at least two glaring falsehoods.

My GF ( who is thai and has read the thread ) agrees that Fried rice isn't a typical thai dishe. But it's really really popular around here, just about every restaurant serves fried rice with chicken/pork/schrimp/crab and so on...

She agrees that just about nobody in thailand spend one week without eating fried rice.

The staple traditional thai meal ( if this thing exist ) would be : One plate of white rice, one plate of meat ( with various sauces and type of preparations )and one soup ( with or without noodles ). That's for central thailand.

In the north replace the soup( or add ) som tam or another thai salad, and instead of white rice serve sticky rice.

In the south, the white rice is very often eaten with curry and meat ( or fish ).

In traditional thai food the rice is never mixed with anything ( you do it yourself ).

Nowadays every thai restaurant I've tried serves fried rice with chicken ( kao pad gai ), and many thais love it.

i am an australian born chinese and i see no reason to ever use chopsticks unless it is a social setting where you need to use them.
forks are easier to eat with for all food and i use them all the time
