Land of Smiles

I'm an expat in Bangkok for past 13 years. Just found this forum and this Thailand News and Discussion thought I like to start this thread to post some of the things I see and experience here particularly food and places of interest. If anyone of you think I'm posting too much and don't like it do let me know. So lets start by this lunch visit to a very local beef noodle stall

Thursday went to my favourite Thai beef noodle shop in Bangkok. This is hot pot style. The soup is simply heavenly.



As it was a public holiday the shop was very crowded

As you can see this shop is very simple its more like a huge shed but you could also see its packed with people having to queue so it has to be good

My order

Image

Braised beef

Image

Fresh sliced beef

Image

Beef balls

Image

This order is actually good for like 3-4 people as normally 1-2 people they will simply order in bowls rather than the hot pot so obviously I couldn't finish alone nevertheless it was fun, watch the video.

The best place in LOS for ladies is Pattaya. 1000's of ladies are available to drain your juices your you can dine at the Y whatever your pleasure. You can have doubles three times a day, if your wallet is thick enough. You can have FL's on beach road and numerous bars, go-go girls on walking street, beach road soi 6, 7, 8, 13/1, and many other soi. At least 1,000 bar girls are available at hundreds of beer bars. Just come to Pattaya and you'll be smiling. Alternatively, you can find a regular/normal Thai lady as a GF, in a shop, restaurant, dating website.

1 USD = 31.7 THB as of today at BKK airport.

Thai food rules.

But Italian and French are a close second, imo.

That’s sliced fresh beef to be cooked in the hot pot.

This meal costs $15
