Nakhon Sawan News


Recommended Posts

I think that you might have a slight problem Bim if you want to go Vegan.

H/M did have once a veggie friend (A pain in the butt) pop over for a few week's some time ago. Bloody disaster food wise.

We did try a veggie meal one night where the served asparagus wrapped in Bacon it was on their veg menu. It didn't go the waste H/M consumed same. Delish it was too.

Goat that's the way to go all served with Dave's Turkey Noodles + his yes I'm dreaming of pint's of the real stuff not forgetting Fish and chips.

There is a German place in Patts that brews it's own beer, it's on Second road not to far from Big C yes I know not bitter but a good pint all the same. They also sell the obligatory German sausage's, the only thing on a German menu evidently.

Only one day to go now looking forward to the trip in my Limo well except the bit some 114km down from K.P.Phet. Where I hit the N/S Bypass.

H/M.

Fred.

Seedy, I agree with Bill above. In practice this forum covers various items relevant to Nakhon Sawan and Kamphaeng Phet and nearby areas. As far as I know it is the only forum that covers these

But then many of us would not know what is going on in the area. Just because it says Nakhon Sawan news does not only mean Nakhon Sawan. From Wikipedia Nakhon Sawan (Thai: นครสวรรค์) is one of the

Yes only one day to go before peace settles on this forum, maybe that's a better reason to put some bunting out! Now there's an idea!!!

What or where is KPP. Also Fred where is Robinsons and Tops near Nakhon Sawan? Also Makro in NS had Lamb last week. Even Goat? Yuk wink.png

KPP is Khampaeng Phet.

I think Fred was talking about Phitanulok where there is a Robinsons and Tops is the supermarket within Robinsons which itself is in the Central shopping mall if I remember correctly.

I will be down in NS (Nakhon Sawan) next month and probably buy the lamb then.

Goat is nice curried Ghurka style with lots of Ghurka rum. Next day it is advisable not to get too far from a toilet. Stock it with something to read and some cold drinks as you may be there for a while and many times.

Had goat for the first time only last month. Cooked overnight in a low set oven with herbs, spices and rice. It was very nice although I do think lamb has a slight edge over it.

Fresh too. It walked to the truck and fought its way in. Came from Kamphaeng Phet of all places.

Even so, our sphincters weren't hot to trot the next day, so it was worth the effort.

There is a goat farm somewhere close to Khampaeng Phet and live goats were about 3,000 baht. I have his card but it is all in Thai.

Maybe it's the same place. Folks at the mosque in Phitsonulok told us about it as we asked about the availability of Halal foods in the area.

The goat cost us a little over 4,000 THB. although I'm not sure if we got a better or worse average of the weight as the bugger wouldn't keep still, but settled down once it was paid for and in the truck tray.

Still it was very nice when roasted after its demise, The dogs never got a look-in.

Jerry

Sick. Vegan is the way me thinks after reading this sad.png

Goat is only lamb dressed in a different suit, and roast lamb tastes pretty good if ever I can find a decent place to buy some.

For your information anything north of the Watford gap is passport country for us London peeps, so it's the Midlands, that runs right up to the Scottish borders.

What ever the reason for putting out the bunting is a good reason. Just hoping it's there this time.

You will all be pleased to hear that come Saturday the 20th H/M will be putting in his latest remark's on the Hub, not forgetting how the Duke's trip went.

In the mean time enjoy the quiet.

H/M.

Fred.

I was raised on a sheep ranch in Australia and I don't share your sentimental detachment to the realities of where my food comes from.

You couldn't be more wrong than thinking the animal was mistreated in any way, Even (especially) though it was destined for the table.

It was taken to a licensed slaughterhouse to be dispatched ready for cooking and nothing went to waste.

By comparison, having seen how more popular local livestock is transported here, my conscience is very clear.

I think that the taste of lamb/mutton has an edge over goat. However, I haven't found anywhere that I can buy a full sheep. but I can buy a full goat.

The traditional recipe calls for a full carcass. Nuts and all, so goat it was. The whole thing was consumed in a very short space of time and therefore categorized as a successful alternative, even though, the fact it looked horny was a dead giveaway.

I hear that the Triangle bar in Pattaya has Brains Bitter at 130 or 140 baht a pint/500 ml. Sounds worth a try when in the area.

Also hear that confu Zion bar has closed its doors. Pity, now no fish and chips, pie and chips, Indian curries, breakfasts etc., in town.

Jerry I think its called sentimental attachment not detachment. I didnt suggest the animal was mistreated. It seams you have taken my comment personally. Maybe that is your consience talking to you. But to use the word dispatched instead of ending a life or as some would say even murder then thats called denial in terms playing with words not unlike colateral damage or war as a theater. But hey my Karma is my Karma and yours is yours. But if I was ever sitting on a fence on the issue then you have just convinced me the right way is always compassion. Vegan it is then. Hope you dont come back as a goat in your next life. Living in Thailand you should know all about Karma.

Thanks for the info I'll try and find Triangle Bar. At 140bt a pint sounds a bit cheap for Patts though.

Sorry to hear of the demise of ConfuZion bar, I did say the other week that you wont earn enough just opening a few hours in the evening.

Mike our local German restaurant opens from 11am till 10pm everyday, except Monday (closed)

He has always done well, always full with Thai's, and he doesn't have 1 Thai dish or even rice come to that on the menu.

H/M.

The Triangle is at the bottom of Soi Chaiphun (off Soi Bukhao) difficult to miss as its, er, shaped like a triangle. Not on my usual list, but next time I am there a few pints of bitter at a decent price will go down well. The thought cheers up an alcohol free Saturday night anyway.

And on Tuesday Wet Spam play the School of Science again, but will they make Fat Same happy?

Did look up Triangle bar been passed it several times never been in. H/M watched the video. Must say not my cup of tea either, a couple of the usual Pattaya plonkers giving it the big one. But as it's not to far from a restaurant we use I might give it a try on the way out for the night.

I see that they do a happy hour from 8am till 12pm two for one. Only hope it not the same as one we went into last time, also two for one but the price was double to start with. Full's some of the locals I suppose.

H/M will give a full report about the best seaside place to live allegedly that's of cause if you don't include Cleethorpes, on his return.

I bet Sam wasn't to happy tonight 1 up half time then they turned off ended 1/1.

Now waiting for the Spur's game to start at 12.30am Might not watch it to the end as a trite knackered.

H/M.

Fred.

You'll need to add two hours if your going through the town, due to the usual heavy traffic that never seems to abate, but only half hour if you use the bypass. Watch out for the bumpy road just before the first bridge.

I don't remember ever going near the place 'Triangle bar' but will have a look this time.

Going passed indeed.

I will keep a look out for your new White Nissan as you crawl along in the lorry lane.

Note to self turn the tanks wing mirror's in a downward direction.

When you have a problem you are invited to call me. I will of cause send someone to help you out.

I'm sure that I will be able to get away without one of the many Limos in the royal motor cade.

H/M.

Meant to add (ref confuZion) that it is also a pity for the staff that will lose their jobs and whoever has lost money on the venture.

Speaking of losing jobs, the Tesco in Fairyland appears to be closing. Not too surprising really as they generally have more staff than customers, same as the new Big C. Makes it almost a pleasure to go there but no good for the balance sheet.
