Thai beach food

Thai beach food Sat one day having a beer at Ska Bar on the beach at Kata Beach, Phuket, when up strolls this chap with what looked like boiled eggs in baskets on his pole.

I happened to be in a tricycle (the motorbike taxis of the Philippines - a tuk tuk by any other name) with Ollie and Jimboy (Mary’s boy) on the way back to our hotel after watching a film in the city centre. We were cruising along at speed, and I spied the sign below. Any restaurant with a sign with a picture of beer on it has to be a winner in my book. Also ...

It was just Mary and I as well, so an “adult” encounter with lots of self-indulgence without the kidlets. Oh yeah and it was 5*’s all the way. We experienced this restaurant one day on a ...
