Ate at Phala Rib House tonight, ribs are the large ones, got the medium rack (5 ribs) and 2 sides 290 bht. Good stuff, plenty of food. I got it for take away but the place looks real nice inside.

Thought so too. The smoked pork ribs (large for me, medium for her) were plentiful and very nice indeed. Must go back and try other items on the menu.

Service was prompt and very friendly also. We will be back soon. 💯

Boardwalk re-opened as the Crab House.

Busy last night, food good and prices not that high.

One big sealed off and air-con room for Karaoke ( if you like that ) or private parties I suppose.

No menu in english yet.

Went out for a beer yesterday, was going stir crazy, beach side place, no names no packdrill.

Busy, quite a few BKK plates in the carpark.

Apart from the staff I could count the masks and examples of SD on one hand. A big % sharing food and no serving spoons in evidence, all using their own spoon, centre dish to mouth etc.

Some reports say some have opened but haven't looked myself.

I did 'recon' on the strip earlier this week purely for research purposes. More of the bars have opened compared to last week and more of the entertainment professionals have returned from their Issan base camps. Punters were few and far between although that was also the case before Covid 19 😀. There were no post lock down special offers.

^Most of the "top end" (geographical, not cultural😉) bars on the Strip are now open. I similarly reconnoitered the environs last night. Not much in the way of pulchritude, unfortunately, but the banter and cold beer made up for it. Go and have a beer, before these places disappear forever.

Having a beer there with the mental image of the strip soon in it's death throes isn't a nice image. 😆

The whole thing kicked off when Mr Coulson opened the first bar,  last building on the row at the Chang Hotel end. Next one was Don McAllister I think, where the new shop is. It just started expanding from there and at that time the majority of 'expat bars' were scattered around Ban Chang.

Prior to the strip the most popular bar was the Oasis on the road from Maptaphut, the road nearest the beach, and when things starting going down with fewer expats working in Maptaphut a lot of the staff from the Oasis moved to the Camel etc.

The strip did have one or two Thai only bars but they didn't last long..

Basically the strip started 97/99 slowly built up and for the past few years has been slowly dying, but who knows the future nowadays.

Early days a lot of guys worked in Maptaphut and they were the main customers. Then the golfers from Pattaya for a couple of years.
