Last Saturday (31/03/2018) we attended the colorful opening of Samai Thai Take Away in Kontich. Owner’s Mai and Damiaan treated friends and family to a preview of the authentic Thai food they will be serving up in the outskirts of Antwerp. Authentic food demands authentic Thai dance, which is why my wife and her friends performed a few times as well. What did I do? Well, I mainly sampled the menu and gave it my blessing. For pictures of the Grand Opening, the blessing of the restaurant and details of the new eatery, just continue reading.
Looks like the Dutch are finally giving the Belgians proper credit for french fries and attributing them to the Flemish, who live in Flanders. In reality, fries originated in Wallonia, in a region many consider as the Ardennes but is actually the Condroz and at the time of invention was part of the Spanish Netherlands. #itscomplicated
The Ra Biang Mai Bar (‘Wood Terrace Bar’) is definitely the most beautiful and laid back bar and restaurant in Phimai. With live Thai accoustic music playing every night, it is the perfect venue to hang out at with your friends, or even for a romantic evening with your significant other. With Kratong lanterns rising to the sky all around the bar, it was a magical setting for our festival dinner. My favourite dish? Spicy wing bean salad.
Today’s lunch features noodle soup with red pork, overlooking an ancient water reservoir from the Khmer period.
