Grilled rats have become a local hit in Phitsanulok province and a couple has reportedly earned over a million baht a year selling them.
Somboon Yooyen, 50, and her boyfriend Somsak Tiwong run a grilled rodent stall on Sukhothai-Phitsanulok road near tambon Phai Kho Don.
"I am proud of selling grilled rats and I earn roughly 2,000 to 3,000 baht each day, sometimes 10,000 baht a day during festivals. This occupation provides me with enough cash to buy a truck and a house in only a couple of years,” said Ms Somboon.
