Lunch On The Road Side .....By Bike Saling.....
Now we've got the three wheeler. (See last posting) weve been off to have a lunch at a local road side restaurant. These places are everywhere. They are really for locals and of course therefore sensibly priced accordingly. Some are good and some complete rubbish so when we do find a good one we tend to keep using it. We must have about 6-8 such places we go to, which we do on some inbuild informal rotation basis. This particular one has an OBAMA sign, and no he is not a Democrate. It's an advert for a local Brew....
The place is located only about 500 meters from home and to date is absolutely the best we've found. (Five Star for sure).
It does have two draw backs: 1, in so much as it closes at 3.30pm everyday and 2, the menu is only in Thai. You really do need to know what to order. Wanna is checking it out for us.... Lazy me.
In my defence I have begun to read quite reasonably Thai menus and simple stuff which you see most days. But have not reached the standard of reading the Newspaper. One day maybe.As for opening hours. It means really we can only use it at weekends. But just look at the colours of the food. The is Penang Curry with Chicken, Tom Yum Soup, and a pork/vegetable stir fry in oyster sauce. Fantastic.Apparently the cook/owner was a chef at the local Siam Country Golf Club. It caters for LPGA's and other Asian and International Golf tournaments So working there he had to be good. He set up on his own at home adn 'mam' is he good.
While I'm writing thsi I can smell the food... Its wasn't just great, it was fantastic.
A meal for 4 persons including beers each was 10US$ all in. Where will I beat that. Thats 1US$ per plate plus beer. Way to go....
