A New Waterhole In Sisaket

Recommended Posts

Have you tried Peppers David? Smoke free and air con.

Coffee is sort of bitter. I think they should change their beans or get a good blend.

The coffee is organically grown over the border in Laos. A lovely bloke by the name of Alan grows it, picks it, roasts it, packages it and delivers it to Ubon. A lot of his profits go back into building health clinics and schools. All sounds lovely duvely doesn't it? Well the best this is that it is the best coffee that I have ever found. I love it so much that I bring home 10kg of the stuff in my suitcase after every trip to Ubon.

Is N'joy reopened? Checked there a while ago, no more British gentleman with his delicious buffet. Only some strange looking and of course overcharging girls. An Archa for 85 baht is a kind of expensive I'd say.........wai.gif

The "British Gentleman" now has a Bar / Restaurant very near the Laithong Hotel called TC Kitchen. He serves Thai and Farang food, excellent homemade Pies and Pasties and a "Kabab Night" on Saturdays (One is not enough!!!)

Good bunch of guys and gals - with the exception of a strange guy who used to live in Phibun tongue.png

Thanks for the useful information. Did you mean one day/week or one Kebab isn't enough? Sorry Kabab.

Hope the strange guy from Phibun isn't a serial killer.........laugh.png

The "strange guy from Phibun" is what I will call a real British Gentleman!! wink.png

One of the best I have to say...

On the Sisaket map Bergen - see Spacemands map posting #14

Maybe soon time for a hash run in Sisaket SantiSuk.........biggrin.png

Yes - that had been in my mind for a few months now. Loads of bamboo bars on the south side of town by the looks of it.

Are any of you SiSaket dwellers likely to be up for a social night out. All you have to do is turn up for a walk (run if you like) and sing a couple of silly songs, drink a few beers then hit the lights (the latter is optional)! Could be August 4th or October 6th.

You can count on Tequila Sunset new in "Sickit" from Pattaya H3, and I'll bring along Ninety-six. We're headed to Phuket for the Hash Bash July 3-7 but will be back for the Hash Run #1 in Sisaket if you let us know when and where the start is, and the ONON ON can be at the CooKoo Nest.

Always good to meet new faces at the Ubon Hash (in Sisaket). OnOn location sounds good too, but keep it a secret! whistling.gif

The hare and GM might have other plans........... biggrin.png

With all due respect David, the coffee at Peppers gets the thumbs up from me .. and my wife, very tasty. I go out of my way to drink there. Although my son pulled a face on taking a mouthful; but there again he is only 10 months old!!

I only drink Espresso with no sugar. Perhaps bitter is not the right word. Sour may be better. I don't like it at all. Of the coffee places that I find Espresso good in Ubon and nearby areas are Spago, Dao in down town Ubon and the Amazon coffee shops at PTT Amnart (road north) and Yasothon (first on right before reaching Yasothon from Ubon). Most other places are hopeless.

Yep; agree with all your locations above. The ones on the side of the road are quite,as you politely say, hopeless.

Have you tried Pantae in Warin. Cracking little coffee shop.

Yes Patriot, I like Pantae very much, especially the garden atmosphere. It was very sad indeed when the young lady owner was killed by a train in Warin 2 years ago when her car stalled on a country crossing early in the morning. The present owner is her sister-in-law. Her brother-in-law runs a horse farm in Warin near Wat Nong Pa Pong. If any readers have children who want to learn to ride horses (more like ponys) take them along for riding lessons.

Almost forgot. I like the coffee at Pantae.

I was in there today for the first time. The host was really good. I ate a burrito for the first time in my life. I have to say it was ok, but not something that I would rush back for. The menu is very limited. But because other places in Sisaket have closed down, the owner has the chance to cash in on the good food franchise

"Uncle Willies" has gone, and also, the French place. And I can't believe that anyone thinks that the other eating hole, I think it is called Franks, is any good. Years ago I went there before he moved and the food was great, but in the last 6 months I have taken visitors there, and every time he has said sorry we are not serving food, ( and by the way this was only at lunch time), but the place was full of his friends (cronies) eating food. The man is a idiot.

I sincerely hope that the "Cuckoos Nest" succeeds, but I think that he will really have to expand his menu in order to do so. In my opinion, and what do I know, he would have been better looking for a double unit, where he would have had the room to have a bigger kitchen area, so that he would be comfortable in the space, and would be able to provide a very good menu. I doubt he will succeed in the cramped space that he now occupise.

But I do wish him, and his wife, the best of luck in their new venture.

I agree with you in certain points. I pretty much doubt that Frank's got many friends. The food- if he's got some- is most of the time not even worth to take a look at. The definition of German food there does not fit......

But that's up to him, he's been here long enough to understand what customers want. Or better said: What they don't want.

I had been at another place where they sold steaks near Kasikam bank. Guess it's Kantharalak road?

. We were alone, this guy, guess he's Swiss couldn't even say hello to us.

One of us had to go to the bathroom, the toilet in the middle of his kitchen and a unlock able door made the desire to empty the digestive system impossible.

I'm very sure that even two or three farlang places would make good money, if.................................coffee1.gif
