Crust is a very convenient restaurant for us (it is near to Tesco and on the way home from school) which serves Western Food.  There is quite an extensive menu -  It always have a cake on display which looks delicious and also the chalk boards might have something which you want.

Then it does have a great Smorgasbord - I always have this! Then we usually share a pizza with extra Olive oil drizzled over it - but as mentioned the cakes are great.

This one was a Banoffee Pie - delicious.

ปากน้ำ ซีฟู๊ด (Paknam Seafood)

This was a very real surprise - this is a very traditional Thai restaurant and that means that there is very little there in any other language but Thai.

There was very little information that I could find out about this small but very popular restaurant. After leaving I did not realise that I had simple enjoyed my dinner.

I found an interesting blog called Travelog with a review in English though - with some glowing reviews...

So this restaurant is something if you are Thai or if you wanted to try the traditional Thai food. A traditional Thai restaurant.

บ้านขนมไทย (ชาววัง)

As indicated previously this is a very popular Thai restaurant which as absolutely nothing in any other language but English - so you must either know what you what, go with someone that can speak Thai or you like the fun of pointing at something. This Chinese sausage dish was bought by my wife but I did not see it out.

What is out is all in a Buffet Style - so if you are a little later (after 12:00) then you may find dishes be lesser - this is a dish which I cannot eat - Gaeng Som - I cannot eat this so we go out to eat this dish all the time!

This is the selection of cold vegetbles which is always served with a Thai Curry and I have gotten used to eating it with anything...

Then there are the drinks tha you can have and I have to admit this Lychee fresh Fruit drink was not for me...

Then there were so many deserts to take home I as puzzled at which one to take - well they had run out of sticky rice and mango... For a traditional Thai restaurant this is a fantastic place to visit...

The Mangrove Hotel Phuket

The Mangrove Hotel Phuket is near to our home so we decided to go there for breakfast and for Jemma the bacon was just crispy enough.

The breakfast was a usual style breakfast and there was not many people - which meant that there was no queuing. It also meant that you did not have to get up and wait long for anything - which meant that we did not focus on the food very much because it was so easy.

The breakfast was the standard breakfast buffet (360 Baht) so not much more there to explain - it was simply normal and the coffee was not special but nice enough to have a second cup.

The decoration around breakfast was interesting - almost leaving me with the idea that the owner was interested in Andy Warhol and or British Educated...

Then we walked around to the side - the rabbits were a little tired...

So we walked to the edge of the water to watch the boats.

Then we had a play on the swing.

We looked at having a game of chess.

Then Jemma had a play with the sprinkling system.

After that Jemma has had enough...

A nice place to visit for us for breakfast...
