Thai Proverbs involving food


Recommended Posts

Here are some Thai proverbs that mention food. They are from the Lonely Planet World Food Thailand book.


(1) Eat waterchestnuts - to fail at something

(2) Before the peanuts are done, the sesame will burn - do things in the proper order

(3) not eating noodles - two people not talking to each other

(4) like lime without juice - dull

(5) coriander leaf sprinkled on top - performing a deed only for appearances

(6) big noodle - important person

(7) cool sweet - an easy-going person

'A shit is better than a fart because then at least you have something to show for it'

off topic I know (i.e. not good food) and probably a very bad transcipt ..but I think within that is their version of 'better than a poke in the eye'?


Edit: sorry to lower the tone, looking at that again I really should have posted it elsewhere ..or just kept it to myself :)

How do you ask for food politely in thailand? And, how do too ask to reduce the "hot" spicy?


To keep it simple.


Kaw (whatever food you want) Khrap


Phet is spicy, so if you do not want it spicy you can say


Mai Phet Khrap - They will understand


If you want to say please you can say


Garoona (whatever it is you want) Noi Dai Mai Khrap

What does thai people thinking about when they are eating? About the next meal!

It has something to do with the fondness of thai people about food and eating in company.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
