My son is in Thailand. He's doing that backpacking SE Asia thing much like my generation did Europe back in the 70's. At the moment, he's staying at an Israeli owned rooming house with an Israeli restaurant in Bangkok. He says Israeli food is soooo good. This caught me off-guard because my first reaction was Jewish food -- the type we get around here. Thinking about it, Israeli food must be more Mediterranean. My son said to think Greek and Middle East fusion. Sounds tasty.
