Benjamin Rush writes from Bangkok: “Thai food has taken the world by storm, regularly voted the favorite ethnic food in prestigious Zagat surveys around the world. Today most metropolitan foreigners are ardently familiar with Pad Thai, Tom Yum Goong and Green Curry. Yet there is a dark side to Thai cuisine that remains intentionally hidden from these unsuspecting palates–an often horrifying underworld of macabre cuisine that would make even the hardiest, battle-tested “Iron Chef” cringe like a little girl. It is in Thailand’s national interest that these secret recipes never fall into foreign hands, so this article will self-destruct in sixty seconds. Read quickly.” Editor’s Note: Warning–Don’t read this if you’ve recently eaten or are planning to eat anything ever again.
