Minute Steak

Lunch at Foodland
I often eat lunch at Foodland, Sukhumvit Soi 5. Most Foodland supermarkets have a 24-hour food counter. They all serve the same menu of Thai and Western standards.

I usually take a photograph of my food, much to the amusement of the staff. Foodland must be a good employer. This branch has had the same cooks for a long time and they all seem enthusiastic. The turnover is usually high in Thai service businesses. Not here.

Surprisingly if the order taker is busy any of the cooks speak enough English to take orders. That’s very rare in Thailand.

The clientele is a mixture of all types from business people looking for a cheap lunch in an air con environment to western tourists and residents with or without their girlfriend of the moment.

It is also popular with the Indian traders who frequent the lower Sukhumvit. Maybe it is because Foodland has a lot of vegetarian options and even make a passable Indian style curry alongside the Thai varieties.

Their minute steak was not the best meal I have eaten. When I posted the photo to Flickr I said that it gave my teeth good exercise.

Does anybody know where the term minute steak came from? I could look it up but it is more fun to ask online.

    I put the only picture Picapp had for “minute steak” at the end of the post. The “related images” are very strange. I do not get the connection.
