The only person who agrees with me to some degree. A fanatic here said I should be destroyed. Several years ago I lost a lunch buddy over this - I'd go eat American, Italian, Greek/gyros, Mexican, etc, but not Thai, and he had an issue with that. Since he was PC, he probably viewed it as a non-PC POV on my behalf.

My best friend introduced me to Thai food when we first met 12 years ago. I'm fortunate enough to have three Thai restaurants within a five mile radius of where I live. Most restaurants will alter the intensity of the spices to suit the customer.

Um, Robertpolyglot, I think the person who said you should be destroyed was being facetious ... at least I hope so!

Gotta agree with the majority on this one, though -- I really like Thai food.

I prefer Vietnamese over Thai food, but I still like Thai food (when its from a good restaurant).

I actually agree with this ... Vietnamese I crave more than Thai but they are both GREAT

BTW: It's NEVER too hot for PHO

I'm another vote for Thai food. I also really enjoy Vietnamese food and many other ethnic cuisines. I do not think it's trendy at all. There may be people arriving late to the party as media has brought many cuisines into the mainstream that were previously only known to those who sought them out.

I also like making many different types of food and have 150+ spices.

I'm not a huge fan of Thai food. There are a few dishes that I like okay, but it's just not my first choice in cuisine.

People around me, that's how it is. Nobody who dislikes it dislikes it thoroughly, and nobody who likes it is faking it to be trendy. I'm personally not huge on Ethiopian but I get its appeal. It's savory. People have been eating it for centuries, so why would others more newly exposed to it not genuinely, sincerely enjoy it too?

Love Thai food too. What can beat a spicy thai curry or a Tom Kha Gai Soup?
