Land of Smiles

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Felt like having pizza tonight so where else have the best pizza in town?

Schweppes for the evening


This is what we came for

That pizza looks as close to the real Sicilian thing that I've seen in a long time.

Thanks. I bookmarked your goose restaurant to add to the rest of your places. Cheers. HNY!

Not particularly happy with the black pepper crab at Jumbo Seafood restaurant over New Year, thought go try their Chili crab over the weekend.

Had the fried rice again which I like
Image

and the sambal kangkong
Image

Ordered the sweet and sour snow fish, just so so this dish
Image

Coffee pork ribs, this is really nice
Image

Roast chicken, again this is just so so
Image

Lunch
Image

I was very excited when the legendary Jumbo chili crab came
Image

Was really disappointed when I saw the gravy. Immedately I know its a watered down dish compared to the original in Singapore
Image

This is my Jumbo Chili crab - the sauce is thin, sweet and sour more like its full of ketchup sauce than the original and so little egg. A complete waste of time really


compare to this photo from internet
Image

Dessert deep fried durian
Image

This is one dessert I'd love

Made a simple traditional dish for breakfast with rice - steam pork with salted fish

After marinating the chopped pork with salt and pepper and a little light soya-sauce and some pounded salted fish I assemble the dish like this
Image

And then garnish with ginger, chili and spring onions
Image

And then


Breakfast is served

Hot tomyam is always great for flu especially after having it and sweating out, after that will surely feel better.
