  1. This place got some favorable reviews on another board. Apparently it was a stand but they've now opened a single shop restaurant on soi Lengkee. I gave it a try. The food was okay, but it's not a place I'd go out of my way to visit again.
  2. I had the Tuesday "Bangkok" special, which is a double cheeseburger with jalapenos, and a side of jalapeno poppers. Maybe they should call it the "Tijuana". I think I make a good burger at home, but they don't hold a candle to Prime Burger's.
  3. I stopped by Hideaway for a modified version of their light American breakfast. I traded the beans (seriously? American?) for another hash brown and the pancake which is authentic but I didn't want one for another sausage. Just what I needed after my first night in the bars.
  4. Daugher has wanted to try this place since we told her about it, so today we went back. Starters, mozzarella sticks and jalapeño poppers: TW had the buffalo wings, Daughter the Grand Slam, and I went with the French dip, though there are so many sandwiches on offer I probably won't repeat with that one. Everything was good.
  5. Thanks, it was the pulled pork one that caught my eye.
  6. Nope. We had to drive around the detour sign to get to their parking. For us, coming West on 36, it's an easy drive. When they fix the road we'll be able to get to Taco House again and try Outback. So, can you say what you showed in your photos? Looks interesting.
  7. Yes. There were quite a few customers there already when we arrived around 11:15, and that steadily increased as lunch time progressed.
  8. We had meant to try this American style diner after Christmas after I saw it on a Ride4Kicks video. Then the lock downs happened. We finally got there for lunch today. From their webpage: TW had the chicken fried steak, I had a Rueben. We had jalapeño poppers as a starter which were also very good. Plus they brought the starter out first then both meals together after it was finished. We got another chicken fried steak and a chicken parmesan take away for the kids. I tried the latter later and it was quite good. Four meals, a starter, two SMLs and a vanilla milksh
  9. I just renewed mine (4 wheel and motorcycle) in Rayong. They're absolutely swamped here. I went in a few weeks before my current licenses expired and they said the first date I could start the process was a month later - after my licenses expired. I came back on that date, they processed my paperwork and told me the first opening for the video and eye tests was in several weeks, or I could do them at a driving school. I went to a driving school that evening and did it there. 200 Baht for each license. The film was 45 minutes and the reaction time/eye tests another fifteen. They scan
  10. That's the way Buriram did it. When we moved to Rayong, they said as long as I come back to the previously listed address it isn't necessary.
  11. I have fiber at home but when we visit the country house (like now) I have to use an AIS phone as a hotspot. At our usage level we run through their data cap in no time flat. We use about 5G/day. Up until last April their unlimited plans really were unlimited, now they're a joke. I've checked Dtac and they're the same. If I was going to sign up for a year I'd just go hardwired.
  12. They do ask about pre-existing conditions, and in my case - a daily pill for high blood pressure for nearly 30 years - they told me that they wouldn't cover any heart or circulatory issues. In addition they wouldn't discount the insurance premium for the reduced coverage, so I chose to self insure. I keep enough to cover a severe health event in a Thai savings account that doesn't have an ATM card attached. That also makes annual retirement extensions easy, as I always have more than enough seasoned funds in that account to satisfy immigration. For banks I've only used Kasikornbank, and
  13. Is it possible to get into soi MiT through those bars from Tree Town?
  14. I'm using AIS 6Mbps. Unlimited data at that speed. 550 Baht +vat 30 days *777*7211# or 7 days *777*7210# for 150 Baht +vat. Upcountry we could only get TOT ADSL 10M and actual measured performance was 7M down 500K up. Also any time there was a slight power outage it took over 5 minutes for the internet to reconnect, and in 3 years I had two routers destroyed during thunder storms even though connected through a surge protector. We switched to AIS 6M and it measures 6M down 6M up all the time. I run it as a hot spot on a phone I was no longer using with a range extender e
