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.

At the risk of starting a hamburger war, a friend gave Heaven Burger in Jed Yod full marks yesterday.

I agree with your friend.  Great hamburger and I love the onion bun.  Their chicken burger is one of my favotites.

BEERS Restaurant.

(accessed via the out of town bus station)

 

Now run by female owner / chef (Beers) Service can be slow but when everything is freshly prepared, cooked and served.... you get great food. Inexpensive menu plus cheap beers & free ice. I had fish & chips that were outstandingly good with home made tartare sauce. The 2 pieces of fish were cooked in a soft breadcrumb/batter..... far better than most places. Personally I don't like crispy batter so Ioved this so much . The deep fried chicken was also good along with SomTam.

 

I've since been back and have been impressed the fish and chips were still so good. Sausage and homemade mash is also excellent. Each dish is 149b, along with cheap beers. Don't let the location put you off, its far away from the movement of the buses......I wish the owner a good trade who seems to have  has a rough 12 months.

Thanks for the news, we went past a couple of times last year but the hostess was not there.

Will certainly be checking it out in the near future.

Did you notice if she was still selling cheese etc out of her fridge?

Yeah, I did the same last year and took me a while to confirm she was open. Several contact numbers I tried for the same business said it was closed permanently!

Read into that what you want 🙂, hence I am hear letting everyone know she's open. 

No cheese for sale. 

Popped by Kurts C Rai Deli yesterday, he had loads if that helps.

We went in today, fish and chips was reasonably priced and a substantial meal.

About the only criticism I could offer is that a small amount of salad added to the plate could help convince us that we are indulging in healthy eating.

This morning we had Breakfast at Chivit Thamma Da. 

I had Swedish PyttiPanna and my wife had Fried Rice with Mushroom. 

It was great, we were both very happy with the food. And it is very nice sitting in the garden looking over Kok River.

We found our favorite Deli-girl in Food Wishes Baan Du the other day.  She was before in the deli behind Da Vinci in the city. 

 

A lot of good stuff in her new Deli.

I went there Monday, she's moved out of the little shop into the Mexican restaurant next door.

Not sure what the plan is, maybe to put more business the restaurant's way. I looked at a menu while I waited and I must admit it looked tempting.

Ribs and Co was busy today and still good value.

Fish and chips, pasta with mussels and a plate of chicken wings with four coffees was under 600B.

Wine buffs may be interested in a current promotion which included an Australian Shiraz for just over 1000B a bottle.

With respect, if you are talking about 1 plate of fish and chips, 1 plate of chicken wings. 1 plate of mussels and pasta and 4 coffees, this may (or may not) be reasonable value but hardly "good value".

As for Oz Shiraz at 1000 baht, do you ever go to TOPS and compare their retail price with the mark up at restaurants? For 1000 baht you could get something much better.

I'm not sure where you're used to eating, but 2 main meals, a side dish and 4 coffees for 600 Baht sounds like excellent value to me.

BlackPrince- You are remarking on a wine being cheaper in a retail market than in a restaurant. Is there anywhere on the planet where this is not the case?

 

So yes, of course you can get better value in a retail store... not sure of your point.

 

AND, a lot of restaurants are lately charging B50 for coffee...

I'm used to eating in Thailand, not sure about you.

But farang junk food is always overpriced here.

Had to smile at your handbag quip.

There are a few pics further up the threads that indicate what "fish and chips" and "chicken wings" look like. Definitely nothing like the real thing.

Foodie reviews here have always suffered from snobbery and inverse snobbery, or the search for cheapness or the need to indicate that an individual aspires to the the high life that they couldn't afford back home  - etc etc. But really, I don't get farangs who've apparently been here for decades and are still looking for cheap farang food to write home about. Still it takes all sorts I suppose.

I'm even more amused at one or two persons who crow about helping locals with 10p bags of sticky rice while while extolling the virtues of 1k bottles of wine, and no I'm not talking about the OP.

Just having a laugh  😉

To be fair, you can get some really good food here in CR.

If want western stuff ,i generally hit Makro and home cook.

I am nearer to Mae Sai ,so i cant be arsed to travel 1hr + for a western meal.

Most places aren't open at the moment anyhow.

Saifon's German Bakery has moved, as patrons have possibly noticed.

She's not too good at giving directions on the phone but I finally found it today.

 

Coming off of 1211....
