You can't have been eating there for 3 years though, he's only been there for about 18 months, he used to run Sabai on 116, Mon is sound though, nice bloke and decent food.

Sabai on 116 is decent too, basically the same menu as Mon.

I'd recommend both.

That's worse than recommending McDonald's as a top burger joint, Pizza Co is dirge.

It serves a purpose but it's like saying the 7/11 micro meals are top Thai cuisine.
Fair enough to a degree. However, some options are better than others (meat deluxe, double cheese for me) and I wouldn't agree there are a whole raft of pizza places vastly superior in town. Part of the post was in reference to the deal. Sure, the bigger boys are never going to get rave reviews by your avid "foodie" but Mac D's, KFC, Subway etc haven't done too bad over the years.

:D

Of course you're right about that. I lived in that soi for 3 years, but Mr. Mon hasn't been there for longer than about 18 months as you mention :)

Those brands make money by pleasing the needs of the lowest common denominator diners. The rest of us think their food is better than going hungry, but not by much.

Whatever you feelings about ff places I am sure newcomers need no intoduction to them.
There are 2 places that I find interesting as they are totally Thai but cooking non-Thai food.
The first is Sakura on Soi 94--the owner a great Thai guy spent years in the US, Chicago I think, and worked in a Japanese restaurant--So he has opened a Japanese place in HH. Excellent and good price.
The other is Grand Steak in the night market next to San Paolo Hospital. Glad they didnt call it Great Steak, cus it isnt.
It has a number of meals Chicken breast, Pork steak, Fried fish, probably steak but as I'm not a beef eater I don't check that out, all with fries and salad for--wait for it---79baht. The rstaurant is totally Thai--VERY popular with Scandinavian tourists.

Yes and one of the things about Thailand is that you can get excellent food at all times of the day and night when in other countries you might be floundering on the beach at McDonalds and the like.

Cheers

I lived in this soi for 3 years and ate there a lot. It is very affordable prices and the thai food is excellent. Some of the thai food is even westernalized a bit so this place has become very popular among farangs in this area. But that said, the thai food is very nice. Even my wife says that the way he/his wife cooks is very good. Dishes I would recommend are: Tum Yum (either with prawns or chicken), deepfried pork with garlic, sweet and sour pork, fried chicken with cashews, Tum Yum Plah(clear soup with fish). The last one is one of my wife's favourites (she orders it spicy hot like the flames in Hell :twisted: ). He also make standard farang dishes and he makes breakfast too. Prices are cheap. Around 50-100 baht for the main dishes.
I also recommend Mr Mon. A really nice guy who speaks English well. If You prefer take away, he will give You a menu to take home. Just call him and order what You like. Get on Your bike and pick up the food after around 15 minutes. Works perfectly all the time.

My only complaint with Mon (or maybe my gfs preference) is his wife cooks on the sweet side, that's just personal preference, I recommend him, great service and friendly.

I've also had the odd piss up with Mon after hours on 116, good guy I class as a mate.

I think you will find this has nothing to do with food and that he wants some shoes made here in HH.

Station lights if you're heading North.

Also, Jungle Juice bar near the Hilton does a good brekkie.

Enjoy :D

Sorry mate having a dizzy period...

So Linn' s is on the same side Market Village going North towards Cha Am 300 m before the Police station Lights?

:cheers:
