Thai vegetarian fried rice (659 calories per serve)

Thai grilled pork (“street vendor” style)

Thai grilled pork (street vendor style) recipe by Yummy Calories

This grilled pork recipe is very close to the one from my favourite street vendor in Bangkok, Thailand. I think he was located on Sukhumvit Soi 22. He used to sell them incredibly cheaply at about 10 baht per stick (roughly $A0.30). He usually comes out around lunch time but you better get in fast … Continue reading Thai grilled pork (“street vendor” style)
