If you visit a hill tribe village in northern Thailand, they may just make a special meal to honor your arrival.

that’s a dead dog in that bag in the back ground

It’s because they are so happy you came.

Burning the hair off the dog

No really, they are glad you came.

A crowd gathers to watch as they cut it up

They are making this special meal, just for you.

Quartered dog pieces, ready for the fire
Doesn’t that look good?
None of it is wasted. Here they are cutting up the rest

But you will find that with enough chili and lime, and the skilled hands of a cook who must be creative with what he has because there are so few options, that a lot of things you wouldn’t normally eat can be really tasty after all.

It was excellent. Move over Anthony Bourdain.
