Are there other competing places with peanut sauce?


Quacky3three t1_j9atpby wrote

Peanut sauce is very common in Thai/Vietnamese restaurants.

Peanut allergy


edgar__allan__bro t1_j9cciho wrote

And for anyone out there who has a peanut allergy and tends to be on the cavalier side of things (i.e. joking about how their allergy could kill them) -- I did have a very, very good friend pass away some years back after accidentally ingesting peanut butter.

Truuu his allergy having genes luckily won’t be spread


Redditributor t1_j9cw7go wrote

I don't think it quite works that way. There are genes that can influence under what conditions certain allergies could develop

They can't eat Thai/Vietnamese restaurants or they'll die, because they contain peanuts. They can't eat Texas Roadhouses either.

So you’re telling me there’s multiple Thai/Vietnamese restaurants in this one town?

Edit: Wow everyone. I guess having a lack of multiple Vietnamese /Thai restaurants near me and being so daring to ask the question means I’ve pissed off a lot of you.

That's not an uncommon thing.

The town I grew up in was an hour from the nearest McDonald’s. If you would have told me as a young kid that you had multiple fast food in your city or more than 1 Chinese restaurant, you lived in a big city in my eyes.

Depends on where you are. I live in a small town with very limited options. Chinese, Mexican, Italian, and several fast food places plus a couple wing places and that is it. The closest bigger town has exactly 1 Thai place and zero Vietnamese. My sister lives in the closest big city (about an hour drive from me) and has a favorite spot to get Pho and a different favorite to get any other type of Vietnamese cuisine.

I live in a Canadian town of about 150,000. Not huge by any means. And we have probably around a dozen Thai or Vietnamese restaurants.


ambermae513 t1_j9b0hp1 wrote

Yeah.... so based on the last census: My town 8,600 Closest bigger town (35 minutes south) 74,000 Closest big city (1 hour north) 880,000

My town has several pizza places, chinese places, and even an indian place sharing a lobby with a fish and chips place.

We have no Mexican, at this point Id settle for a taco bell or something.

I just want some fucking quesadillas man… ones I don’t have to cook for myself.

In the Bay Area, which has one of the largest Asian populations in the US? Yes. My neighborhood has 2 Vietnamese places and 2 Thai places all within a 10 min walk on the same street.

Heck even in Arizona there’s a good handful of Thai/Vietnamese places here. Some Japanese places, some chinese, some Korean, it’s a nice diversity.

I live in a city of 300,00 in Australia and there are probably 15+ Thai restaurants within 20 minutes drive from me and at least half that in Vietnamese
