A New Waterhole In Sisaket

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I walked around the town and was surprised. A new place had its opening today. It's called the cuckoo's nest, I found the following discripion on facebook:

The ‘Cuckoo’s Nest’ is another name for a mental institution, making it an appropriate name for a farang bar in Thailand! In Sisaket, we farang have one thing in common: the cosmic bakers took us out of the oven a little too early!

Whether you’re crazy or not, a Farang far from home or a Thai person looking for new experiences, you’re always welcome at The Cuckoo’s Nest Pub & Grub. Sit back, relax, enjoy our delicious home-made food and refreshing cocktails. Straightjackets and thorazine available on request.

Remember our motto: it’s okay to be crazy, just don’t let it drive you nuts!

Beer, Cocktails, Great Food

Thai, Mexican, Italian, International

Located On Walking Street in Sisaket just 250 Meters East of Pompiman Hotel

So did you stop in? Was it any good?

I didn't stop because it was crowded. Next time I will have a try and check the food.

Alas, Sisaket was always known to be a backwater [a positive thing].

Seems to be expanding, in regards to Farang accomodations left and right of the last 5-6 years.

With all due respects and good luck to the owner considering the amount of raving loons, basket cases, care in the community patients and just outright mad as a shithouse rat nutjobs who seem to gravitate to LOS I wouldn't consider playing on the "we're wacky" element too much.

"Thorazine available on request." A drug used in the treatment of schizophrenia, bi-polar disorders and manic depression.

Table for two near the wondow please and can I see the wine list. biggrin.png

Any input please regarding the quality of food? Any Schnitzel Vienna style, or other decent food?

Thai Mexican, Italian, International....

Thai- Fried rice with frog legs Mexican- Tacos from Macro. Italian- Chinese noodles sold as Italian spaghetti.

What could international stand for? .International French Fries from France?

I hope they don't use too much Rohypnol in their food to keep the guests quiet.....bah.gif

Its a Mexican twist there is a facebook group for the place if you search with some pictures, the name I think is just a tongue in cheek to have a a little fun and a theme.

I know the owner a little a jolly American that knows his food. Its a new place open for 4-5 days but expanding the menu almost daily and with only one other Farang place in town there is definitely room for it.

For pizza, stews, pies, sausages, schnitzels and european type of food we have Living in the Past by Frank and Nong

For burgers, Mexican style and so on we have Cuckoo's

Both places and the owners are great and no matter where you go you will get go service and good food, both are worth a visit.

So that would be on Thanon Ratchagan Rotfai, the street running parallel to, and south of, the railway line, would it Fishbone?

As a regularish, but mostly day time, visitor to SiSaket (living amphur Kantharalak), Im not familiar with 'Walking Street' (in SiSaket at least) and there's no walking street marked on that English language map of central SiSaket that I came accross a couple of years ago.

PS - while we are on about SiSaket is the zoo still open? Can someone give rough directions, coming from Kantharalak and hitting the southern 'ring road'.

Not quite sure about the directions to the zoo from the ring road Santisuk but I can assure you that it is open. Looks like only quite recently though.

Here is a blurb I found about the zoo on the internet.

"The ‘Cuckoo’s Nest’ is another name for a mental institution, making it an appropriate name for a farang bar in Thailand! In Sisaket, we farang have one thing in common: the cosmic bakers took us out of the oven a little too early!"

Walking street is the street that have the Sunday night market, If you come from Pompiman hotel and walks down the street towards the train station is on your left side.

On the old Sisaket Map its the same location as the old Sisaket Coffee.

The zoo is also on the map its all the way down in the left corner, in the Somdet Phra Sri Nakarin Park.If you come from Kantharalak the turn left on the ring road pass the Aquarium next big intersection with traffic lights turn right, then 300-400 meters straight then turn left at the traffic light and its 200-300 meter down the road on your left side.

An American knows HIS food. American food.

A Thai knows his food. Thai food.

A German knows his food. German food.

I see no problem with that statement. And the problem is?

Good luck to the owner. With shitty attitudes like that one, it only means that happy, nice people will be sitting at his tables! Hurrah!

Did anybody try that food yet? American food hmmmmm... Do they have hot dogs? tongue.png
