I'd slice a cutlet off a fresh pork leg, or bone out a top loin and slice it really thin.

Really really good! I sometimes made "veal" marsala with pork too.

I think you are probably correct. The pork in Thailand is good but the beef is, well...

Some of the restaurants here offer Schweineschnitzel on the menu at about the same price. My "Weinshhnitzel" meal is presented well, tastes delicious and -despite my complaining- can still be had for a reasonable price.

The Thais must love corn too because they use is as a pizza topping as well. I have even seen it sprinkled on ice cream :

Would a native Thai pay the same price for the same service at the same place?

Would his/her price be lower for the same service at another place where "farangs" don't frequent as often?

We have a fast food chain around here called weinerschnitzel...primarily bad hot dogs and even worse hamburgers.

http://www.wienerschnitzel.com/

That'd make for a fairly equitable replacement for the macdonalds index.

That was the "Thai" price. It's in the Lad Praow area of Bangkok, very few tourists so no double pricing

I could get an EXCELLENT Weinerschitnzel meal including fried potatos, salad and small Beer Chang for B130 or $3.25 USD
And don't forget the inflation in the cost of the cholesterol meds.

Just be sure that when on your deathbed and proclaiming "But I had a LOT of weinerschnitzel!" that you clarify that its the german dish and not the fast food joint!

Also, it'd be good to make sure you can get the "schnitzel" part out before you expire.
