I certainly haven't, but instead all the ladies and gentlemen who had to join the Army lived in my country

.I'm still in touch with a few of them, so I do know a lot about their culture.

I just wanted to know if anybody had tried that food yet. Not blaming a bigger country for not having a real identity......

Some great food there - you'd love it. Seafood and steaks to die for. Excellent spuds and salad ingredients. Tasty Mexican food. Interesting Creole cooking. Huge portions of Texas BBQ'd ribs. Gourmet burgers that taste of BBQ and beef. Yum yum, and eating out is half the cost of the UK

A Brit who was astonished when he went to live there 35 years ago. The British dining scene is now excellent too, but mostly at the high end or Indian/other ethnics. America does budget plain cooking fantastically well.

Wish you every success Sawtooth.

Looks like you'll need it. Us locals have been talking around the subject for the best part of 10 days now, but it seems like none of us can get off our backsides and actually try it whistling.gif

Hours please? I'll give it a whirl on my next trip up there if you are open for lunch, though I wouldn't be surprised if you were starting with evenings only

Hi Brian

As above ..... what hours are you currently opening??

I attended the opening and the meal was excellent ... some Mexican dish the Brian recommended.

OK ..... that's enough --- see you in about 3 hours .. I'm hungry.

We called it "The Cuckoo's Nest" as just a little tongue in cheek fun about all us Farangs who are cut from a different cloth than our mates who still live three blocks from where they were born.

I can tell you is that my wife and I will do our best to provide a clean, fun, small "pub" where a few of "us" crazy Farangs and our Thai family and friends can have a nice coffee, a cold beer, a cocktail, and a nice meal that you might find difficult to find in this part of Isaan.

I believe we make a great selection of HOMEMADE Mexican food including Chile Verde Burritos, Chile Colorado Burritos, Black Bean & Cheese Burritos, Pork Chimichangas, Chicken Quesadillas, Chicken Nacho Salad, Yucatan Style Salsa, Spicy Black Beans and more to come. We hope to offer Pork Carnitas, Carne Asada, and Beef and Chicken Tacos very soon. But we will not offer it unless we can give you a high quality, reasonably price meal, in a cozy environment that you can afford.

Sirchai, perhaps my use of "International" was inappropriate. We are a small place with an expanding menu. It just seamed like a "catch all category" when I wrote it. I sincerely apologize for offending you so seriously. If your find you way to our restaurant and are not satisfied with the food.....it's on me!

We offer Spaghetti with a very rich thick HOMADE meat sauce. Baguette Pizzas. All American Chicken Salad Hoagies (rolls for the "American" impaired! HaHa). We make a nice Pork Steak marinated in my own marinade. A very nice Marinated Beef Tenderloin Steak (when we can get quality Tenderloin). We hope to offer more very soon.

My Thai wife is an excellent cook with many years of experience making tasty a Thai food. She continues this experience at The Cuckoo's Nest.

We welcome anyone who wants to enjoy themselves and have a pleasant time. Please check bad attitudes at the curb!

Cheers, Brian

Do you have a google map reference for your place for us in Northern Isaan who sometimes pass your way on our road trips?

wai.gifGood evening, all!

Just wanted to say that, having read the previous posts, I'm glad to see such a positive response to a new venture in Sisaket!

The food's delicious, the beer & soft drinks are ice-cold, and the clientele are a multi-national mixture of easy-going and interesting characters! I'd recommend it to anybody of any nationality, be you tourist, teacher or ex-pat! Everyone, both Thai and farang, is made to feel welcome and relaxed by Brian & Aew!

Having said that, if you are offended by simple adjectives, or prejudiced against certain nationalities, you might find the regular customers don't share your views thumbsup.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.

I think that he will be very succesfull. Now Pizza Willy is gone and the french guy too. Who will be there for the farangs. Living in the Past ist to far and I believe they will be the next closing down. Sorry.
