In Thailand, food is one of the most topic to think about. Thais love to greet others by asking “Gin Khao Rue Yang” which means “have you eaten yet?” or to be more specific, “have you eaten rice yet?” The phrase has shown how much Thai people concern about food and rice eating.
Usually, Thai food will come with rice and Thais love to have rice with their meals. Having sandwiches or things other than rice can't be called as a meal to Thais. Especially to a young group of people, they don't really sit down and have a proper meal, rather, they eat when they feel hungry.
It is wise to be careful when you have Thai food or have a meal with Thai people because you might gain more weigh back home.
