So you weren't very familiar with them in the first place then?
Sukhumvit Soi 52/1 has a good one. About 100 yards down the soi and your left. I can't remember the name.
I think the chain also made beverages... Omishi, Omrani, not sure... good for black tea and lemon tea ???

Don't get me wrong - I don't want a 'serious' board but I'd like posts to be either genuinely amusing, informative and/ or thought provoking.

Oishi ! that's the one - was always the only white guy in there but a great place to pick up local Thai girls
I never had much luck with Inuit chicks. Too much fur for my taste.

I worked in Alaska for a couple of summers. Scary women. Evil drunks.
LOL. well at the moment it's the local Welsh girls, and that is why some local guys turn to sheep for tricks... but i'll be back for my little Buddhist princess.
Sushi is sooo expensive in Britain, 100 baht (2 uk pounds) at the local Market in Thailand would cost you 750 baht (15 uk pounds) at Sainsburys or 1500 baht (30 uk pounds) at an "AUTHENTIC ASIAN RESTAURANT" So authentic it will cost you 15 times more... go figures
So the monthly exchange rate right now:
you can eat 360 UK pounds of Sushi in Britain OR 24 UK pounds of Sushi in Thailand
So that's why I ate at Oishi 3 times a week for 7 months while freelancing in Bangkok
and with the added advantage of ALL YOU CAN EAT + drinks and ice cream
the new monthly exchange rate then becomes
1,000 UK pounds of Sushi, etc at UK restaurant OR 75 UK pounds at Oishi
I <3 Oishi

You seen those 'sushi' snackpacks in UK Supermarkets?
Absolutely foul. Rice undercooked, minimal amounts of ingredients, and far too cold.
The words "Sushi" and "UK" rarely result in a positive statement...
You can get good noodle packs of sachets of 6 for 1 UK pound if you the buy 3 packs at the same time (that's a special offer from Sainsburys)
and that's almost the same as Thai rates, 3 wafer thin slices of chicken with a soup broth and some vegtables that I can't pronounce the name of
and I'm practically back in Rayong
i must be home sick
