Chivit Thamma Da Coffee House never disappoints and breakfast is my favorite.

Le Meridian offered a Christmas brunch this year at 888B+tax+service  which turned out to worth the outlay. I've not been to a brunch there for about three years due to ill health and inconvenien

I have just finished my first trip ever to Chiang Rai - I loved the place. Was lucky enough to go to Chef Sasa for pizza - wow it was fantastic. I honestly think it's one of the best I have ever had.

Me thinks I shall give it a whirl this morning. :-)

Go easy on those Sandwiches. Ones enough for most of us. Everything in 'Moderation' :)

They used to do large ones as well which were perfect if you had an appetite but now they only offer small ones. Like the good man said, they are very nice and the staff will happily mix & match the ingredients to your liking, my regular is tuna, egg & cheese and if I'm not being thrifty I might even splash out and have the bacon & egg one which is worthy of it's own shrine!

The miniature brownies are good too, in moderation of course ;)

Just returned from there now. Wholly satisfied.

Best sandwich Ive ever had.....period!

Great caramel coffee shake too.

I wonder if she can cook British kite marked chips, one of those mini loaves smothered in lurpack and filled with hot jockeys.......oooooooh!

Had the Miss Pauline Special calzone at Tree House tonight, the wife had the salmon with mashed potatoes and braised asparagus. Fantastic stuff, as always. Always nice to find places that don't go downhill with time. They seem to only get better.

No, it isn't on the map. Proceed from the Coffee Doi Chaang Coffee and Arthouse, which is on the map, about another 60 meters towards the new river bridge and Work @ Home is on your left. Wide open front, you can easily see inside and there are usually tables and chairs in front, by the side walk.

So, from the night bazaar, head towards the river, cross the first traffic light (clock tower street) and proceed about 100 meters more. There is also a small Honda shop on the left. Work @ Home is the next building after the Honda shop. I often park behind the cafe, have a lunch and then leave the car parked there as I go on into the city center to shop or get a haircut. Short walk to the night bazaar area, maybe five minutes, tops.

You can buy fresh bread there also. Good bread.

I would love to visit the store, but I cannot make chocolate from the directions.... Please from one of the two clocktowers?

I just came back from a beautiful biketrip to Chiang Khong together with 2 friends.

We had lunch at Bamboo Snack Bar and we all three ordered mexican food. It was just fantastic, best mexican food I have ever eaten in Thailand.

We talked there to two tourists from Arizona and they said they stayed in Chiang Khong for 4 days instead of two just because of the food in Bamboo Snack Bar! And they owned their own mexican restaurant in US so they probably knew what they were talking about

So if you go to Chiang Khong and like Mex food, do not miss it.

You can find Bamboo Snack Bar on the main road in the city.

For what it's worth Dept: I like tuna, but am troubled by over fishing, particularly by the Japaneses, and noticeably in the Mediterranean. I still eat tuna sometimes, but feel a bit chagrined when doing so. Now, there's the new concern about radioactivity which may or may not be affecting sea creatures, including seaweed for making sushi. Call me a tree-hugger if you want (I've been called worse), but this once and future hippie (though now with less hair), is still concerned with the environment on this finite planet - being raped to benefit one voracious insatiable species.

A friend stopped by yesterday and reported on a great lunch at Vivian House. I didn't know they served lunch, as I always go in the evening.

Anyway, he reported that the chicken cordon bleu was excellent, as usual. VH is one of the few places in CR that you can find that dish. It has been a while since I ate there. Missing it a little. The spicy cashew chicken is excellent.

They have tables inside and outside; no street noise or vehicle exhaust with your meal.

My mother used to make this mexican dish that I loved. She would take velveeta cheese and nuke it with salsa. Then we would pour it into hard shell tacos and crumble corn chips on top. God that was good. I guess that would be too hard to find.

Velveeta cheese seems to be identical to the Kraft Cheese sold in the supermarkets here.

Salsa is plentiful, Don's make it and sell it.

Taco shell's and corn chips at Northern Farm.... :)

Other than a few little cheese mixes in tiny jars, I haven't seen any Kraft cheese that is close to Velveeta, anywhere. If anyone finds some, melts it and has something like Velveeta, let us know what you found. That will be a good day in CR.

I'll confess that I made my judgement on appearances.

It still melts nicely though, possibly a more runny melt could be created if it was mixed and heated through with a little hot milk.

No need to abandon our improvisation skills just because Central Mall has arrived.

Yesterday I found out that Mom Mai in Central Plaza has closed.

But fortunately the restaurant (Mom Mai) in Den Ha is still open. Beautiful place with very, very good Thai food.

:):D:)

Not surprised. Never saw more than one table occupied. Too bad. Too much competition? Service compared to original? I wonder about some of the high end clothing stores but maybe a chain can hang in longer for the long run.

Full array of Mexican food stuffs at new Top's supermarket in Central Plaza.

Tortilla Chips Bag about 60-70 baht, salted and nacho style. Dorrito's nacho chips bag 90 baht.

Flour tortillas in the cooler.

Refried Beans, Hormel chili con carne, nacho jalapeno cheese sauce all in cans.

Pre made corn taco shells.

Salsa, Tabasco, Jalapeno's, Taco, and Burrito seasoning packets, etc.

Top's also has a lot of cheese choices

Hard to find any Corn tortilla's in CR anymore. Usually now only find them at Rimping in Chiang Mai.

Can get some nice Salsa's and Sauces at Sausage King Chiang Rai and at Northern Farms.

Can also get Avacado's cheap here in Northern Thailand during seasonal months for Quacamole. 3 Kilo's for 90-100 baht

Good to see you back here Sceadugenga.

I have found Tops is cheaper than Northern Farms for Mex ingrediants lately.

Am dying for some Tamale's. At least Kae's in the night bizzare makes a good enchelada.

Don's Foods in Doi Hang has the best Thai beef available from the largest supplier with over 4000 head of cattle. Steaks are portion cut and vacuum packed. Also, have an excellent supply of Mexican food making products. Our new Irish sausage is the talk of the town.

Dusit Island Breakfast Buffet

document.write(eopts);contact info | www | mapdusit1.jpg A two hundred baht breakfast in Chiang Rai is not easy to find but a two hundred baht buffet breakfast in a leading hotel - impossible. Not only do you get to eat from a selection of cooked meats, pastries made for you omelettes, all kinds of condiments, fresh croissants served at your table, coffee, fresh fruit juice etc etc but you also get the relaxing views over the lawns and the Kok river. The selection is huge, you can eat a different breakfast everyday for a week and then wash it down with coffee until you are as wired up as TOT.

dusit2.jpgIn six years of eating western breakfasts in Chiang Rai this is easily the best both in terms of price and quality. This breakfast deal (200 B - all inclusive) runs until the end of July - I am fairly sure that by then demand will extend this offer. For any potential patrons scared off by the cholesterol fuelled meals described there is always plenty of fresh, healthy food on offer also.

If you do get a chance to try this breakfast say dusit3.jpghello to the busy General Manager K. Pornthep - A friendly and helpful host who will make sure you enjoy this Dusit experience.

I would advise would be 'breakfast goers' to also check out the Dusits fiitness centre - if you get addicted to this breakfast your waist will be in trouble. This is a highly recommended opportunity to dine in superb surroundings and eat a breakfast thats hard to beat.

After searching for Ban Klang Wieng or the Tree House Restaurant numerous times, I finally found it and was totally impressed with what I had. Now I have not a drop of Italian blood anywhere in the family tree as far as I know, and therefore had no Italian Grandmother making lasagna for me as a kid, but I do know that I really like the American bastardized version of it and when I got it yesterday I was in heaven! Aside from the texture and the presentation, the taste was out of this world. I will be coming back to try other dishes. Five thumbs up for this place. ett
