    Literally cannot remember that M'Sahib actually went out for any kind of food anywhere, has to be at least 3 months ago if not more. Anyway, had to do a 90 day report this morning, which in Phuket is no hassle, a 5 minute drive through. Anyway, we ventured to a place, "We Cafe" less than a km up the road from us, and from which we frequently have take aways.

    I had a tuna and boilded egg baguette (not had from here before, now on the take away list)



    In the spirit of the vegetarian festival, this was followed by a tofu steak with mushrooms in a sauce.



    M'Sahib had some kind of mock seafood laab.



    and fried rice with anchovies (which weren't anchovies, they were salty mushrooms).



    Very, very nice have a draught beer.



    M'Sahib sticking to her fresh pineapple juice.



    There are far worse places to have lunch.

    I think i see in the last shot what attracted your good lady to the place

    The question is, was the food a triumph of style over substance? it looks good.

    The world's smallest khao soi. This was my second bowl.



    Twas very very good though. Probably the best curry sauce and noodles, a small amount of points deducted for using the small chicken drumsticks instead of the large ones, and the onions were sliced, but still connected at the base. Other than those 2 minor issues, among the best there is.




    Of course sitting with yer clogs dingly-dangling over the river.




    There's been some flipflops lost.

    All the food was good, though the sauce with the tofu steak was a little too sweet for me.

    Nah, unless she's grown it herself from a seed or a cutting, she's not interested.

    I think I found one of his toes in my spaghetti tonight, strangely enough it tasted like Italian sausage...

    Homemade (Prego Free) gravy with Italian sausage artfully garnished with Thai basil, served in a plastic bowl.

    At 6.99 a bottle it’s hardly a great sacrifice.

    Very nice!
    It must be a pleasure to be able to have a cold beer with your food again.
    Here in Khon Kaen, you still can't but many of the places we frequent know us, and give me one anyway, but it is in a metals container so that no one else knows what it is,.
    Ho ridiculous! any way hopefully this will also be over in KKC soon.
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    Currently, here in Phuket alcohol in restaurants is completely legit. We're lunch people rather than dinner anyway, so a couple of beers (great if draught), maybe a wine, and even a cognac and coffee to round things off is fine. M'Sahib doesn't drink at all, so no constraints re driving home. What really puts me off going out though, is the lack of atmosphere, even though we don't frequent typical tourist areas, it just isn't a pleasure going anywhere, masked up, and service is what appears occasionally in slow motion.

    I'm far more comfortable in my own home, eating and drinking what I want, good TV/film selection. Yes, interaction with others is great, problem is that the sole topic of conversation is how crap things are and akin to a Samaritans meeting. Doesn't do it for me, head for home and dial up season 5 of "The Wire", check out the fridge, walk the dogs, twist the neck of a Regency bottle, trust that the San Miguel in the fridge hasn't gotten TOO cold. I look forward to more social time with my friends here if and when some form of normality returns, or at least I can have them over for lunch or dinner without the risk of a SWAT team of local volunteers raiding my house.

    It's mostly just an age thing though.
