The Food Porn Entry

18 Nov

It’s my last day in Bangkok. And so, as I do on every visit, the last post is the Food Porn Entry.

This visit was as busy as ever with lots of assignments and lots of issues. Like every business, ours continues to change based on government legislation, insurance carrier demands, technology, competitors and, of course, internal issues.

However, what doesn’t change is the quality of the food that I get served, mostly on our main acute care campus where my temporary office is located. Almost all of the food shown in the slides above is from our hospital kitchens. The chefs in our kitchens are capable of making a huge variety of different types of cuisine, including Indian, Laotian, Vietnamese, Middle Eastern and Western. Some of these menu variations are shown above.

As I always say, hospital food here in Bangkok is equivalent to fine restaurant food. I wish that our Canadian hospitals would take the food served to patients more seriously. Surely good food can help people heal better and faster.

Having mentioned the healing quality of the food served here, I should discuss the last slide’s contents. Yes, this is dessert. Yes, this is unhealthy. Yes, this was made in our kitchen. No, this is not served very often. Yes, I did eat some of it. No, I did not eat all of it. Yes, what I ate did make me feel better faster.

Until the next time, good-bye from Bangkok.
