Far from making the list of top healthy Thai dishes, khao moo tod is basically a handful of pork that’s deep fried with garlic and soy sauce. It’s then placed over a plate of rice and served with an optional fried egg. The greasy meal is such a delicious treat when it comes piping hot!
I was recently kidnapped on an overnight road trip, hitting all the touristy food havens in the small mountains and hills a few hundred kilometers north of Bangkok. No responsibilities. No agenda.
