It is not that I dislike Thai food, but I cannot eat most of Thai foods since they are too hot and spicy. :blob_cry:

@clacke When I couldn't have food at home, I ate vegetable from backyard garden, and again rice is always my friend.

@veer66 Is Thai like Chinese in that "cooked rice" is in practice a synonym of "meal"?

@clacke Yes, we can ask people "Kin Khao Rue Yang", which is translated word-to-word into "Eat Rice Or Not-yet". Although I ate Dal Tadka, I'd reply yes.

@veer66 Yes, that's the exact Mandarin phrase too, Cantonese is "eaten-concluded rice / not yet (question-mark)" because it has slightly richer tenses.
