Phuket Town noodle vendor is adamant that her Super Cheap somtam was made from snake, not fish.

Wanida Pakamaad, a late-night noodle vendor in Phuket Town, raised the alarm by posting her initial surprise on Facebook. (See here.)

Ms Wanida tagged the location of her complaint as a “Super Cheap” outlet on Surin Rd in Phuket Town.

In her Facebook post, Ms Wanida pointed out that she had ordered Pla Ra Kra dii Luan, which roughly translates to “pickled fish made from moonlight gourami”.

“How could the supermarket have done something like this to me. I can’t imagine how. The supermarket must check this. Please share,” she said.

Ms Wanida bought more than half a kilogramme of the Pla Ra to use to serve to her own customers.

Some people commenting on her post suggested the dish might contain some other kind of fish, but Ms Wanida insisted that the meat in her serving was snake.

Ms Wanida filed her formal complaint at Phuket City Police Station yesterday.

She vowed to file a complaint with the Consumer Protection Office in Phuket Town today (Sept 10), calling for the agency to investigate the business that served the suspect dish.
