Thai food fans>>> I have a question

I do not eat vegetables.I love spicy food, but I am hesitant to ask for a dish at a Thai restaurant without the veggies.Would this insult the folks working there (esp. the chef)???
I would love to find a Thai place that would let me order the classic dishes without the veggies (I know this seems odd and the veggies are a big part of those dishes) but I just wanna get some input.

  1. I don't think you'd be insulting. You can ask. They can say no. Call first if you want to avoid having to walk away if they wont do it.

    1. Some Asian languages have a word for a guest who only eats the meat in a dish as to do so is perceived as rude. But you are a paying customer and this is America.
