One of the wonders of the world is that it is so vast and diverse. Happy Pig Ribs are no exception to that rule. Tasty fresh grilled meat brings about and takes care of the lost souls of the world. You have huge number of valleys, river, hills and mountains. Quite many cities are connected to each other via millions tiny strings, people and birds. Even artificial borders and identities do blend together as the eternal dance of universe goes on.
People here and there, touch each other. Gently they feel and get to know with the other. Even most remote and most unknown will eventually become friend and known, as one step a time, the scary delusion of unknown, of detached entities blend together.
The midland of Thailand
Thousands of years of history does blend together the annals of time. Food makes the essential ingredient for any society and indeed the mechanics of sovereign. Long history, huge population and highly nutritious nature and rich cultural environment does all bring about to food and eating.
One of the most important regions of Thailand, Prachuap Khirihan, host millions and millions of people around the world. Its beautiful ocean, bay of Siam, will merge with European food. Meatballs roll in as jets after jets land to former swamp.
Meatballs, which some young nations tried to take as their symbols of identity, are more spread around the world than what one might think in the first round. For some reason, chefs and cooks around the world have tended to take minced meat and roll that spicy and tasty paste into nice tiny or why not bigger balls. Only the ingredients do change, and the surrounding setup.
Soi Meatballs in Hua Hin
Its the head of the province, head of the state, and in a way head of the world as well. Meatballs fill up the remote Soi 94, where restaurants after restaurants live together, some doing pizza and some pasta. Is there also some beer somewhere? Are there sabai sabai discussions and encounters for everyone?
Tuk Tuk curves out from the main road, Tanon Petchkasem, around Soi 88, along the way to famous and tasty, yet quite often overpriced Baan Khun Po foodcourt. It is the double-seven which will lead the people to Soi 94 and its famous meatballs.
Want to have Thai or European balls, its up to you! Take the best what the Soi has to offer. Its no cowboys here, but decent settings and good food.
Before the end of the highway, just there where Soi 94 heads to kiss with 88, just there, where the lonely CCTV cameras watch over the crossing day and night, just behind the corner one will find the best of the best of Hua Hin, Prachuap Kihikhan. Best of the meatballs, for hungry and thirsty people.
Costillas de Cerdo and Happy Pigs
Doing food, and indeed preparing meat is all art and barely any sports or playing games. As the day turns into warm breeze of tropical evening, the grill outside of famous Happy Pig restaurant will make the whole family run around, buzz about and eagerly prepare for the night. Thai style, the family restaurant employs locals to help in preparation as the ranks of farangs around Europe are increasingly finding their way to have dinner in the traditional Spare Ribs restaurant of Hua Hin.
French riviera comes to Hua Hin, as Spanish styled grilled Ribs prepare themselves on the grill. Ms Monta, the longest serving chef of the restaurant does her best to take care the ribs in heat. Huge potatoes, salads and fish all cook as customers keep on flowing in.
Its time for the owners, Mr Sipi and Pon sit down with customers and chat relaxed. Bones pile up as the ribs, one by one, make customers happy and sabai sabai.
