Why Does A Tiger Cry? ทำไม เสือ ร้องไห้ 


Why cry lah?

A dish named ‘sua rong hai‘ (เสือ ร้องไห้). In Thai language, Sua means Tiger, Rong Hai means crying or weeping. Hence, “Crying Tiger”.

No one knows why, and everyone has their own interpretations.

Because it’s starving, same as me now.

Because you are eating it and the tiger has no chance, that’s why lah.

I guess it is the chilli, making even the tiger cried as it is chilli hot (spicy).

Because there is a lot of marbling; more fatty, which causes oil to splash during cooking process … hence,  a crying tiger.

Because it’s so good, and mankind finished it. The tiger cried because didn’t get a chance to use it

I think:









It’s MY darn-good-fingerlicking-licious grilled beef , and the tiger can cry if he wants to, cry if he wants to. I would cry to if the grilled beef belonged to the tiger.

Why, do you reckon? What’s your theory?


Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
