That's pretty much exactly how I felt every time I ate anything in Thailand.Soooooo gooooood, though.... nom.
For sure. You can't really go wrong in Thailand. Unless you don't like spicy food. Then you can go very, very wrong.

This takes me back! I remember when I volunteered as an English teacher in a remote village, I lived with a host family and really wanted to integrate. That meant eating everything they gave me. Which meant I had very painful bowel movements.
Nothing says "authentic village experience" like painful bowel movements!
You mean Papaya salad right? That dish often out-spicies all the curries and chillied rice dishes out there.
That's certainly one of Thailand's many dishes that LOOKS innocent enough, but in fact packs a serious tongue-boiling punch!
