Thai food has now spread throughout the world and a wide variety of Thai cuisine can be found in the restaurants of Europe and North America. So, if you are a tourist looking for a unique Thai eating experience, what should choose? The answer is MacDonald's Samurai burger. You can get Tom Yan Gung or Pad Thai anywhere in the world, but the Samurai burger is only to be found in Thailand. That's right: not in Japan, not in Hamburg (the home of the Hamburger), not in America and not in Scotland.
So how do you make an authentic Samurai Burger at home? The simple answer is you don't. Firstly, you would need a PhD in chemical engineering and, secondly, you would need a food processing plant the size of an oil refinery. Not to worry, you can pick one up at a drive in. Its just 150 Baht for a burger, French fries and a drink.
This is great value when you consider that the average Thai worker earns 300 Baht per day. So, your average guy can have a Samurai Set for lunch and still have 150 Baht left for his evening meal, and food for his wife and children, and the rent and utilities bills, and of course medical insurance (which he is sure to need if he is eating Samurai burgers).
