  1. I was in there today for the first time. The host was really good. I ate a burrito for the first time in my life. I have to say it was ok, but not something that I would rush back for. The menu is very limited. But because other places in Sisaket have closed down, the owner has the chance to cash in on the good food franchise

    "Uncle Willies" has gone, and also, the French place. And I can't believe that anyone thinks that the other eating hole, I think it is called Franks, is any good. Years ago I went there before he moved and the food was great, but in the last 6 months I have taken visitors there, and every time he has said sorry we are not serving food, ( and by the way this was only at lunch time), but the place was full of his friends (cronies) eating food. The man is a idiot.

    I sincerely hope that the "Cuckoos Nest" succeeds, but I think that he will really have to expand his menu in order to do so. In my opinion, and what do I know, he would have been better looking for a double unit, where he would have had the room to have a bigger kitchen area, so that he would be comfortable in the space, and would be able to provide a very good menu. I doubt he will succeed in the cramped space that he now occupise.

    But I do wish him, and his wife, the best of luck in their new venture.

    I agree with you in certain points. I pretty much doubt that Frank's got many friends. The food- if he's got some- is most of the time not even worth to take a look at. The definition of German food there does not fit......

    But that's up to him, he's been here long enough to understand what customers want. Or better said: What they don't want.

    I had been at another place where they sold steaks near Kasikam bank. Guess it's Kantharalak road?

    . We were alone, this guy, guess he's Swiss couldn't even say hello to us.

    One of us had to go to the bathroom, the toilet in the middle of his kitchen and a unlock able door made the desire to empty the digestive system impossible.

    I'm very sure that even two or three farlang places would make good money, if.................................coffee1.gif

    You get mixed up. The guy near the bank is from Frankfurt/main and not a Swiss and he gets fixed to Thaicustomers.
  2. I agree with fishbone. It seems you like complaining, one of the typicall guys here, whining about everything. It seem for me to that the whole is escalating. If you don't like his place or german, just stay away. Never call anybody in idiot except yourself. When I'm in Sisaket I allways pleased with his food.

    Look the Schnitzel on the picture and at Frank's you get it.http://media.tripsbytips.de/img/users/10224037/480x424/schnitzel-wiener-art-mit-pommes-10388466.jpg.

    Go around and ask people , very few will agree with you .

    This guy is from Frankfurt.

    Frank has nothing in common with East-Germans. He never made a lot of german food. The only german meals he is doing is schnitzel (great) , german bratwurst (nothing wrong) the last 2 month he starte with peasoup but thats all the rest of his food are pizza,pies, a great chilli con carne, a fantastic stew and sandwiches or rolls. He is not doing art cuisine, if you wont this you are better in Bangkok or other places. If you check google images about frank's german dishes. I can't see any different.

    His toilet is not in the middle of the kitchen he cooks outside. The door I agree he must find a solution but also before he had a lock and some kids locked themselfs .

    And by the way I think that he has many friends he helped a lot of people and allways he had been listen to their problems.

    Just sometimes he is in a funny mood but who not. He runs a one man show and for this he doing well.

    Does anybody know that there’s also a Frankfurt in East Germoney?

    How do you now that he’s got nothing to do with East Germans? He never made a lot of food sounds funny in my eyes. Try a “Schnitzel” my wife’s cooking.

    People who like Bratwurst should try the Nuernberger version, available at Tesco’s TGM place in Ubon. Not different to the German version.

    Peesoup isn’t really a German dish, to be honest. Personally, I don’t like Bangkok, because it’s so polluted.

    His almost cheese less Pizzas would make Italians cry. I don’t understand why he’s got to make his food outside of the kitchen. I googled and googled but couldn’t find images,

    Are the kids still locked in the bathroom? I’m very sorry to hear that. Hope they’ll be rescued soon.

    Guess you meant being drunk with funny mood? Hope he’s getting well soon.

    I’ve googled and actually found a photo. Hope it's not from his outdoor kitchen. Auf Wienerschnitzel..............

    Be happy with your wife about the schnitzel , idoubt. His pizza has more cheese then you think. May you are spoiled by pizza hut. And if you have no idea Frank is from Westgermany (not geremony) If you call people stupid watch YOUR SPELLING or be stupid by youself. I know that he helped many people. Better is you just stop whine around, tha'ts Sisaket and not a touristshowered area. For you google around just put in schnitzel and all the other dishes. Be happy whining. I'm happy that he is here have you done any good thing here before fore other people. Just shut up. For your personal insults you shouldt be banned.

    By the way about Frankfurt , the guy close to Kasikorn Bank, he is from Frankfurt/Main . I hope you know where is the Main-River. Stu... Cun. !

    I agree with you 100 %. I been there few times and he has allways been a very good host, as you said , he is doing most of the shit alone, because his wife ( Nong ) is looking after their granddaughter. He trie a lot and also I know that he has many friens, I mean real friends. in Sisaket. Brian and him are good mates too. I do not like it when people slagging other guys who are nice. Frank with his advices saved some good bucks.

  6. Hi Shivers and welcome to the forum

    If you can make it to Srisaket on 30th October, there is a great bike show/concert in town. Me and a number of fellow 'SurinFarangs' will be riding over there & staying the night. Although I live in neighbouring Surin, I have seen quite a few farangs lurking about Srisaket. Some teach English too. A good focal point is Franks place in Town becase he makes great farang grub. If your around on 19th/20th or 21st November, the worlds biggest Elephant round-up is staged here in Surin.

    Feel free to PM me, if I can help further.

  12. Hi all

    Well those of you who know Norbi's of Surin will be pleased to hear that he is opening a minimart and small Bistro :D on the Buriram Riviera (Friendz side.)

    He will stock top German beers as well as a large selection of wines all at keen prices, along with a selection of European produce.

    If it follows the Surin model he will also stock home cured hams and salami's. As well as providing a good menu of jumbo sized meals!

    All my previous experience of Norbi's has been positive so I look forward to the opening on 2nd April, when I am told free Champers will be available!

    As for the "curse of Buriram bars" Norbi has plenty of experience of running successful establishments so I expect him to stay the course.

    TBWG :D

    For more Info you can check his new website http://www.farangfoodparadise.de.tl   :o

  14. Thailand considering social security for foreign workers

    BANGKOK, March 2 (TNA) - The Cabinet is expected to consider recommendations to extend social security benefits to registered foreign workers in May, Minister of Labour Phaithoon Kaeothong said on Monday, noting that at present the privilege is given by the government and enjoyed only by Thai workers.

     

    Mr. Phaithoon will invite labour officials nationwide to meet later this month to compile the numbers of foreign workers in their provinces so that welfare can be extended to registered workers.

    If privileges are offered to foreign workers in the same manner as Thai workers, Mr. Phaithoon said, he believed crimes committed by foreign workers against their Thai employers as well as diseases brought by them into the country would be reduced.

     

    Unofficial statistics estimate that there are between one to two million foreign workers in Thailand, with only about 500,000 officially registered. The balance are illegal.

    Surveys indicating the number of foreign workers are to be carried out nationwide, Mr. Phaitoon said, after which solutions to problems will be discussed in April with recommendations expected to be sent to the Cabinet in May for approval. 

    The recommendations, if Cabinet-approved, will become law automatically. (TNA)

    What it means ? Is there a possibility that foreigners can get retirement wwhen they work as teachers in Gov. Schools. What's  all in in that social security?
