The fish restaurant you are in right now, is named after a Thai children ’s story.
During the rain period the rivers overflow their banks, leaving behind fertile puddles in the endless shallow places and river banks.
It ’s raining cats and dogs, but never for long.
When the sun is shining again and the birds are whistling, another sound can be heard.
It sounds like rain, but it are the fish, who are floundering at the river banks.
To the little Thai it seems as if it is raining fish, where else can they come from?
So: It Rains Fishes
And why is this restaurant named this way?
Well, you are enjoying a different way of cooking here: Western fish is being sprayed with a sunny Eastern rain of flavours.
Whereas the Western finds: I think, so I am.
The Oriental says: we feel, so we are.
