Job Joob (closed)

Joob Joob is a more popular stop than it shows on this blog - foursquare has the most - each time we go into Central for Zen and other restaurants I like to 'pop in' to Joob Joob.

It is a small place where they create the most wonderful cupcakes - for many occasions - read TripAdvisor for the plethora of different cakes that they have made. When I wrote this post Joob Joob was #1of44 Coffee + Tea in Phuket Town.

Joob Joob is essentially a small self contained kitchen where the cupcakes are created and then displayed and adjacent to this is the wonderful Illy Coffee.

Wonderful for a place to pop in.

ตำเว้ยเฮ้ย สามกอง

Delicious Pad Dook Foo
This was a wonderful exploration - we found this to be slightly outside Phuket Town - the closest 'large' site is Tesco and the now closed Phuket Butterfly Farm.

It is a relatively new operation - late 2013 and has been built near to where housing was built and is adjacent to an artificial reservoir.

The furniture is simple and organised outside - there is an inside and air-conditioning but I have only seen it used once.

Traditional and served with the small crab
The food is wonderful - served in a typical Thai way - no frills and simple!

Issan style Som Tam

Traditional Thai Iced Tea - sweet 
Traditional Thai Desert - Lod Chong Nam Kai Ti
The photographs say it all! 

Getting here is simple; if you have a driver who will wait for you (and knows where it is already), got a motorbike, used the Pink Bus which drops you on the road adjacent to Tesco, have your own transport or walk from Tesco / Bangkok Hospital BUT it is definitely worth a vist for the food alone.

Then we visited here after Jemma's Graduation and found that as a special treat we could have chips for Jemma.

The Beach Bar

This is certainly one of the places that we most frequent - check out my foursquare check-in's.

I have visited here so many times (see below for posts) that I have to admit to have stopped posting - so for this post I have collected all the pictures together. Sorry if you have seen them before I do apologise. 

This means that the next post for The Beach Bar will return to the food.

Here is a recent Instagram photograph.

ร้านหมี่น้ำกุ้ง อ่าวเก ถ.พูนผล

We have visited ร้านหมี่น้ำกุ้ง อ่าวเก ถ.พูนผล a number of times since then but my first visit was part of the TAT Chinese Temple Tour.

Well it certainly was a popular location for lunch - it was packed!

The cooks were very busy and I should no longer be surprised that the food is always distributed correctly.

The noodles that I chose were the Seafood Noodles - and they were delicious always with some of the extra chilli - we have visited there a number of times now. 

Certainly a place to visit for Thai Traditional Noodles.

I would take someone with you who can speak and / or read Thai to help you make an order - there were menus on the wall though or a Thai Food Talking App.

Rati Coffee and Rati Clinic

I really do not recall a clinic being built with a cafe in mind - on reflection it was a great idea. 

Someone needs to pop in and then the other can wait outside but I was alone...

The cafe is very close to the road and this made it easy to 'pop in'. I do not know whether that is a good thing or a bag thing but it wasn't noisy.

Clean, empty, Free WiFi and air-conditioned!

 The coffe was good and the service was quick!
