Dear Hillary,

I don’t know if you answer ‘food’ questions, but here goes anyway.  I have seen people eating what looks like an egg ‘parcel’ with meat inside it.  They cook it in the wok and fold the egg over like wrapping a flat square object.  What is it?  And would it be too spicy for someone like me who is a little afraid of spicy food?  I really do want to try but I am just a little afraid to go in and point!

Dear Spicy Sue,

I am sure you are referring to a Thai omelet, called ‘kai yat sai’.  Generally it is pork based, but you can get chicken as well – ask for kai yat sai moo (pork) or kai yat sai gai (chicken).  When it comes to the table it will have a little bowl of red ketchup – but beware, it is chili, not tomato!  Around 50 baht at most food carts.  Enjoy!
