The Craft Gin Club goes to Thailand: Thai food porn

We were lucky enough to spend a bit of time in Thailand recently. Although we searched for decent cocktails, we found much better views than cocktails (although the views more than made up for the mediocrity of the drinks). But one thing we did find was good food - everywhere. 

From £2 dishes on a street corner in Bangkok to freshly caught fish in the islands, our Thai chefs never disappointed. Here are a few of our favourites in food-pornish style (we're not terribly great at sexy shots - we're working on it).

Baked Pineapple - full of rice, veggies, sausage and obviously pineapple - and red curry

Delicious "No names" - basically fried balls of dough with veggies and prawns - accompanied by the closest thing we could find to a Negroni - a glass of Campari (left)
