You might not know that Thais do up some tasty fried chicken. And that fried chicken is commonly eaten- from roadside to restaurant.
If you’re in Bangkok and want a good fried bird (in aircon and with great som tum too), head to Jacky Fried Chicken on Soi Polo, just by Lumpini Park. Here’s picture of the half bird, perfectly fried with all the crispy garlic bits….
I began working in Bangkok during 2008- a time that featured a great deal of political unrest in Thailand and particularly Bangkok.
I had lived in San Francisco for 15 years and was working on a project in Thailand. Generally, I spent 2 weeks in Bangkok and then 3-4 weeks in San Francisco. Did Bangkok begin to feel like home? Yes, and No. Bangkok and the Thai culture forced me to feel many things, the change in culture and environment was so dramatic it forced the decision- embrace or ignore.
I embraced and made Bangkok my home and base in 2009. I have enjoyed living in Bangkok, experiencing Thailand and the entire ASEAN region. I moved to Singapore in 2016...fallen behind on this blog since.
