  • Good episode.

    8.0
    I can't really say anything great about this episode. It was interesting and entertaining, but it was one of the more gross episodes, which should be expected. I like the fact that there were many new foods, but it just kind of made me sick and grossed out. I liked some of the foods, especially the seafood. It is just the market that kind of ruined things. I don't know why I hate seeing snakes and chickens being killed, but it just gives me the chills at times. It was a decent episode overall, but I was also very grossed out. Thank you.moreless

    • Andrew: One of the pleasures of traveling the world is discovering the things you suck at. (after Andrew tries unwrapping net from crab)

    • Andrew: Just when you think you've eaten all the goodies in the kitchen, the chef has always something hidden in the back.

    • Andrew: I've got news for you friend, you'll need a bigger bag. (about Thanom's catch of lizards)

    • Andrew: Phuket is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and in the surrounding countryside you never know what mysterious taste treat you're going to find. This is one of the last places on the planet where you can actually snatch your lunch from a tree in the backyard, pluck it from the ocean, or grab a late night snack in a night market. In Phuket, you can truly leave your culinary inhibitions at home. And remember, if it looks good eat it.

    • Andrew: Oftentimes, it's the unexpected side trip that yields the greatest results. That's what traveling is all about.

    • Andrew: A lot of people say lizard tastes like chicken. It doesn't though. It tastes like lizard.
