    Villa Market Udon

    Villa Market in Udon has now been open for 2 months. A welcome for Expats for sure, especially the Yanks. A bit expensive but nice for those special treats unavailable before in Udon. Staff well trained towards customer service.

    I've not been there, but the Midget informs me it's packed to the rafters with plastic foodlike products that the Seppos dearly love.

    Dont go and miss out. They carry more British shit anyway. Sausages, kippers, beans of many varieties, and pies. Even that stuff you named your dog after can be bought in big bottles.

    I myself prefer Foodland which is an easier trip from my place. But if I have to get some spice or a special ingredient it seems there is a better chance at Villa. At a much higher price of course. My Foodland has just realized they are in direct competition to Villa and are beginning to stock more and more western food each week.

    It's a welcome addition to Udon. Located downtown. Two local Brit restaurant owners supply pasties, pies, etc. Patron tequila is stocked. Large wine, liquor and cheese selection.

    ^ We got Chern Chim, Tops and Villa now, but mainly use Chern Chim and Tops for ease of parking.

    Villa is in the new Landmark building which if you come into Udon from Nong Khai, don't turn on to the ring road, but keep going straight into town. When you're near the middle, you'll see the building on your right at one of the main intersections.

    For pies your best bet is Chern Chims. The ones at Villa are way too small and more expensive then Chern Chim's. VIP parking is available on the side facing Bangkok Bank so no problem parking also Villa Market opens at 0800 compared to 1030 for Tops. Biggest down side to Villa very poor bread selection, and many items cheaper at Chern Chims.

    Since they have now sorted out a VIP parking area and offer a membership card for future shopping discounts,the Udon outlet is slowly getting there,need to cater more for the Brits/Europeans with products they have in abundance in their Sukhumvit soi 33 outlet.The Yanks have all their products oop here.Deans products seem to sell out fast,never a large stock when I get there.Bloody Laoites coming over the border with their large wallets.

    Deans products do seem to be limited, but then you can always go to his shop and get it for a cheaper price. Bookhouse had a lot of prepared meals in the freezer but are now missing. Apparently the Bookhouse is going through some management changes. One thing I can only find at Villa is Half & Half cream.

    So what has happened to the VIP parking at Villa Market in Udon? It appears many Farangs are unhappy that they can't park right next to the front door. God forbid they sould have to park in the car park and walk a few meters.

    British shit?
    Does that mean they don't stock the worst food on the planet.
    American shit.

    Don't worry in a few months time the staff will forget the training and be back into picking spots,talking on the phone and generally being lazy bastards

    Spotted dick, haven't heard of that since I worked in Wales back around 99. It was included in a proper Christmas supper. The Welsh must start early on their Christmas as it was just the last week of November when the supper was served. The only thing I remember about it was the spotted dick along with a few pints of Old Speckled Hen.
