Title: Food for Brits on vacation
Post by: Johnnie F. on June 25, 2017, 10:46:06 AM
Brit food wars

I have to say.  I'm really enjoying the way these handful of people are going at it on the forums trying to promote their garbage products.  Is there really that big of a market for this bland food that these blokes buy from a distributor and then resell with a huge mark up? Did Korat all of a sudden become a constituent province of the the UK?  WTF is up with this crap?  I have actually purchased some of these products and I can tell you first hand they are C.RAP. worst hamburger patties I've ever tasted...threw them away. Loaded with fat and salt. Curries? Bland, hard meat, not even spicy. Absolute garbage. Turns out the pork filets i bought came from the south of Thailand. Why? Thai meat is rubbish. I didn't even bother to cook this c.rap and gave it to my two dogs who puked it up an hour later. Yuck. One guy sells colmans mustard in a jar (small) for 155baht and another guy sells it for 110baht. Why the huge differnce in price? Go to the mall and right next to the big can of colmans mustards is a thai version in a small yellow box....30baht!!!and it is awesome!  You want fresh meat at a fraction of the cost these numb skulls are selling it for? Yamo market.

What's next on the list, spotted dick?

Taking this old topic up again. It's very important, that Brits can enjoy their own gourmet tastes in Thailand! Just imagine a huge number of British visitors or expats falling sick and needing to complain about food poisoning in Thailand. Imagine the Thais reacting like the Spanish, accusing them of "Sickness Scams", or even banning them from holidaying in Thailand in response to their strange tastes and their stomachs only tolerating, what many others consider inedible.

Brits banned from all-inclusive holidays if bogus food poisoning claims don’t stop (http://metro.co.uk/2017/06/21/brits-banned-from-all-inclusive-holidays-if-bogus-food-poisoning-claims-dont-stop-6724103/)

Better let some entrepreneurs deliver what suits their stomachs instead of Brits "falling sick" in such high numbers in Thailand, where they will most likely go, when they can't go to Mallorca anymore. :evilgrin

My company, Messrs. Sue, Grabbit and Ruine have just opened a Bangkok branch to exploit this exciting new market.  Please get in touch if you have been ill after eating street food. Don't worry if you cannot remember if it was Soi 5 or Soi 7 or if it was the 3rd or 4th vendor along.  We will just sue all the vendors in both sois.

Hi TT, your new company will definitely be a valuable addition to the tourism business in Thailand. Is that an outcome of the Brexit referendum: "What you can't get in Europe (anymore) old and new colonies will have to supply?" ;D

The perfectly reasonable right to continue to make false claims against hoteliers will be enshrined in the Brexit negotiations.
I forgot to mention that our first 20 customers in Bangkok will be offered a generous discount on our exclusive timeshare development in Pattaya.
