Leaves, Anyone?

The Thais eat a lot of vegetables and spices. One of the things that ‘shocked’ me when we first came was when a restaurant served us a basket of raw vegetables and ‘leaves’ that I didn’t recognize at all. I’m not a vegetable eater so, there are a lot of vegetables that are unknown to me but are common to many people.

But still, I tried to eat the ‘leaves’ and was surprised that they have a nice and distinct taste. Our friend who was with us that first time even told us that she’ll try to taste all the different kinds of leaves back home too.

Below is the basket of ‘leaves’ served during our dinner last week.
