Angry Birds pad Thai: Enough is enough!

Angry Birds pad Thai: Enough is enough!

A restaurant south of Bangkok has given the popular noodle dish a fishy, Finnish infusion of fury

Would you eat this? JM's pad Thai is topped with furious-looking fowl. There's no stopping those crazy Angry Birds.

The stars of the insanely popular video game continue to migrate from electronic screens to the real word, appearing in an ever-widening range of merchandise, attractions and eats.

Not even Thai cuisine is safe from their fury.

Though at this point, with the law of diminishing returns kicking in, we kind of wish it were.

Nevertheless, diners hitting up one of JM Cuisine's two restaurants in the Thai town of Phetchaburi can now order up plates of Angry Birds pad Thai.

The little edible birds are actually made by a local fish ball factory following JM Cuisine's specifications, say staff. They essentially have the same taste/texture as Thailand's popular spongy fish balls, which are usually found in noodle soups or grilled satay sticks. But not pad Thai.

A traditional plate of this stir-fried rice noodle dish is usually made with eggs, fish sauce, tamarind juice, chili pepper, bean sprouts and shrimp, topped with crushed peanuts, coriander and lime.

So would you call JM's version Finnish/Thai fusion? After all, the Angry Birds games were created by Finland-based Rovio Entertainment.

But even we can't complain about the price. A plate of JM's Angry Birds pad Thai will set you back just 50 baht.

JM Cuisine: Branch 1 is on Phetchaburi's Khao Wang Road, opposite a Shell gas station. Open daily, 7 a.m.-8 p.m. +66 (0)85 832 3330. The just-opened Branch 2 is near the entrance to the cable car at Phetchaburi's Phra Nakhon Khiri Historical Park. Open daily, 6 a.m.-5 p.m. +66 (0)89 910 0099.
