Thai Engrish Recipe
More Thai Engrish funny translations.

I was looking through a Thai travel magazine and came across something interesting in a recipe.

I was thinking the recipe might be good for the Try Thai Food blog we have on ThaiPulse! but inspection of the ingredients showed otherwise.

You’ll have to click on the picture to zoom it to full size to see which ingredient I’m talking about…

In this case the fermented shrimp paste is actually “normal” here and not the ingredient I’m referring to!

There are some great signs in Thailand that if you look you will see them and laugh hard too! I really should make more effort to take more photos of them, but usually I’m not thinking about it. I’ve gotta change that because there are hundreds just in one town.

Look for Thai Engrish in your town in Thailand. Some of the best are in restaurants…
