we were both famished, so in a complete change of pace we decided to have a Chinese meal for Sunday lunch, in The Village, it is on Third Road near the fire station but on the opposite side,
the chippy, then the Chinese, we decided to sit outside as it was quiet cool,
great way to order food, just check the boxes with a red felt tip marker,
we first ordered duck and pancakes, 295 baht,
that may seem a lot but the helping was huge! unlike the UK where the duck is brought to your table and shredded whilst you watch here the preparation takes place in the kitchen,
Diana enjoyed every moment of it,
in case you have not done this before and want to try this most delicious dish, take one of the steamed pancakes from the bamboo pot, put a line of sauce on it, then a sprinkling of sliced onion and cucumber, there was so much duck you can put a really generous helping of that, next roll the pancake, eat and enjoy!
it was so nice Diana eat the very last bit,
we were so full, luckily we only ordered the duck as we did not want to rush, which was just as well as we needed a long break before our next course, the duck was for two people a main meal in itself, we had ordered it just as a appetiser, boy were we wrong! so one to our next course,
fried rice with prawn which at 120 baht was a bargain, most places we have been to, rice with just a few peas added runs 140 - 160, but the rice here not only had peas it also was sprinkled with sweet corn, the prawns for the price were a real bonus, to complement that we also ordered chicken chow mien at 140, both dishes were to say the least delicious, all in all if you like the taste of British Chinese this is the place for you, if you have never tried it before the food here is well worth the trip to try,
the waitresses have some natty T shirts,
no chance of missing where they work!I know I have got the numbers out of order, but I thought I would put the map first,
and the two page menu from the Chinese side of things,
after all of that food we went home to do what we do most Sunday afternoon's, feet up and catch a few ZZZZZ,'s!
Deep Impact was first out for the evenings entertainment, as a comet is on a collision course with earth, humans have to prepare for their survival, they randomly select eight hundred thousand people to be saved in order to keep the human race alive, the story is based loosely on another disaster movie made in 1951, When Worlds Collide, but in this one it is another planet that is threatening earth, now the bad news in this one the earth is destroyed,
followed by the last of frost that we have, Endangered Species, Frost is summoned to a remote farm-house by criminal Kevin Flanagan who is in a blind panic, at the farm he finds a crocodile and cages full of endangered species as well as a severed leg, at the same time the Harris family are shocked to find the nude corpse of a local art teacher in their bedroom, remember the old joke? 'waiter bring me a crocodile soup and make it snappy!' well it is not as bad as that but the 'snappy' line still makes it in there, after that for us off to bed.
