Kopitiam



This is a popular place that know that a friend of mine - Jamie likes to visit and it is a popular place for people seeking traditional Thai food. I believe that there is another outlet two doors down from here and that it is air-conditioned but I have not visited there. We like to sit outside and watch the world walk past. If you go in the evening they shine different coloured lights onto the buildings adjacent. If this is what you are looking at the best place is eleven two + company....



Despite looking like the restaurant has been there forever it actually opened in 2011!

Kopitiam is run by the Bumrungwong family who also run the well known herb shop next door - and the family also had the Wilai restaurant which is on the other side of the herb shop. Kopitiam is also called "Kopitiam by Wilai". The Wilai restaurant is now part of Kopitiam - an airconditioned section! And it has a little secret - a passageway through the kitchen leads to the Shrine of the Serene Light which has its entrance on Phang Nga Road one block south. There's quite a bit of history here!

There are a multitude of choices to make before your dinner - I enjoy the cold beer they serve but there is a 'butterfly drink' which I have been told to try!



Then there is the choice of food - we were waiting for mummy to come home and it was simple foods...





We loved everything and will certainly go again...
