We then had 2 fried headless animals on a plate dropped down on the table. ” She replied I then asked her “Is there anymore food coming or is this all of it? I feel I have lived an blissfully ignorant life until now. .-= Nomadic Neil´s last blog – Is trying to rank high on SERPs like running on a treadmill? On the road indefinitely, just need to make money as I go! Overall, it’s still one of the most interesting nights out I’ve ever had, even though it was probably just a normal night for her. I was applying for a fiancee visa to take her to the US the whole things was advanced scam put on by her and her family.I just stared in the complete lack of preparation/spices besides beheading and dropping in a frying pan. ” She said it was the last one, as she tore this creatures leg off and began tearing the meat away from the bones. Further research shows what they actually look like in the daylight (mine was battered though), ranking at #1 on the most terrifying food to eat on this list: after the fetus balls, fried frog, unknown meat balls and parasite salad costing for the both of us including a coca cola we got back on the moto exchanged pleasentries and I bid Sophea goodnight and farewell, it was only pm but she gets to sleep early due to long work hour commitment she has, a shame we couldn’t meet on a weekend night. .-= Adventure Rob´s last blog – AC/DC Live in Sydney =-. Hope that answers your questions ;-) Reply I have eaten those eggs too. Under a tarpaulin held up with a basic wooden frame and sat down on child sized plastic stalls a mere 15cm (6″) or so above the ground, I wasn’t asked what I fancied to eat, Sophea just went ahead and ordered a mix because she was hungry.
We went outside and headed towards her moto, indeed it was raining hard.
First up was a plate of small meatballs, I’m not sure what meat it was, but it tasted half way between beef and pork. ” “Egg”‘ she replied, she said something else I didn’t understand and she didn’t know the English ‘pong tea koun’ was the Kymer pronouciation, how bad can an egg be anyway? Reply The eggs are OK, but I think I’d prefer if I was prewarned to what was inside! I had a really bad experience getting into the country (search scams of the Thailand-Cambodia border) but after I got over that I found everyone to be nice.
Secondly was a big bowl of mussels, I’m not keen on them so Sophea had them mainly to herself dipping them in a chilli sauce and sugar combination she made at the table in a seperate dish. It was large for an egg, and battered, I assume and was expecting a scotch egg when I bit into it, but sunk my teeth into it, clearly meat, I’m glad I’m not a vegetarian right now. Reply There will always be plenty around the tourist spots.
I had a bit of the salad knowing it would be sliding out of my backside quicker then it went in the front end just for a bit of normality from this road kill dinner. ” Interesting I thought, although that doesn’t really explain the meat. I just adore hearing about the delights, and not so delightful experiences with food in this vastly different continent.
I asked again what the egg thing was that I was eating (I started on the second one of the two on the plate). Reply I heard something about the duck fetus on the Travel Channel.
