King Narai the Great's Royal Golden Pineapple Fried Rice (#62). I have never seen fourteen women so sure of anything as they were of their order. Fortunately they called in advance to let us know what they were ordering which was a very smart thing to do as we rarely have that many pineapples on hand at one time.
It was quite a sight when the wait staff walked out of the kitchen with pineapple boat after pineapple boat after pineapple boat. The staff is still talking about it. Honestly, we have have no idea what all that was about but the women left happy and left good tips so we were happy.
Pineapple boats have a very long and proud tradition in Thailand. Not just to serve fried rice in — there are also boats in the floating marketplaces filled only with pineapples.
But you can find fried rice pineapple boats everywhere, even at Ralph's Farm Market in Murrayville, Canada!
There's no reason why good food can't be fun to eat. Whether you eat by yourself or in a group, I defy anyone to eat fried rice from a pineapple boat without smiling!
