Baan San Raak - closed?

Well this was certainly a surprise....

After visiting here a number of times we did not think that this would close AND it was also a pleasure to visit. So if anybody knows anything more please tell us as we miss it.

The restaurant was comfortable.

The deep fried fish was superb

and now it's closed?

Cindy Beach Pancakes

No this is not the name of a bar in Patong! I do wonder how many hits that I got because the reader thought that they were getting something else - here there are pancakes and they are good.

I always have the pancake with fresh banana and chocolate sauce...

Dinner is taken at The Beach Bar - 100 meters South.

The Mangrove Panwa

We visited The Mangrove Panwa because it was so close to our house and it was Christmas so Jemma and I were in a very happy mood and I can't really remember a lot BUT the satay was good and the coffee was strong. 

BUT the prawns for the salad (which was bursting with flavour were not of a very good quality).

It was better than our first visit.

We will return - it was also a very nice touch that Jemma received a Christmas present from the staff.

This is the best place for the classic Thai dish of Mango and Sticky Rice - I have to apologise to the owners of this place but we have never stayed for anything else.

My friend Jamie has visited here and eaten something else so I feel that his review is better than mine BUT the mango and sticky rice is fabulous!

Mee Ton Poe 3

We popped in here because we knew that the food was good from our previous visits and the food was swift - it was lunchtime. 

Okay it is not the original Mee Ton Poe - that Mee Ton Poe is in Phuket Town near the superb Circle Coffee.

But this was convenient and sometimes we like the more comfortable chairs and tables - the food though is always wonderful - we always have the Hokkien Noodles and they are always great - a place that you must visit.

When you want that hearty sandwich on the fresh loaf Subway is the best place to make your way to in the whole world. Okay i has nothing Thai in the shop - it sells exactly the same thing (apart from the crisps) around the whole of the world.

I like to have the sesame seed baguette with the pepperoni and chilli sauce - delicious.
