Garlic fried fish

Crispy-fried fish topped with garlic and peas, served with a spicy dip and a side of vegetables. Perfect, except that I don’t eat garlic so first task is always to scrape off all the garlic and shake the fish free of garlic crumbs before digging into it. One of my most-ordered and most favorite dishes at this crowded restaurant by the  street in Chiang Mai. It’s actually weird...

New sushi and sashimi bar in Garapan

THE first thing that greeted me and my companion when we entered the smoky glass doors of this restaurant located at the second floor of the A1 Store in Garapan is the mouthwatering aroma of grilled beef, and the cozy atmosphere and spaciousness inside.

Of course I had been there before, but for a drink or two and not to eat. Four tourists were having chasers with their drinks at the next table and all the other customers were also having drinks. It felt kind of...

Dining at Pier 54 (aka Moby Dick)

DINING on seafood in a restaurant filled with pictures and carvings of fish, marine life and ship paraphernalia is one experience you can get at Moby Dick. It makes you almost imagine the salty breeze from the ocean blowing through if you open the windows, except that Moby Dick is not on the beach but at the heart of Garapan. The place is a seafood lover’s haven. An...

Not yet conditioned to eat, I glanced idly at the lunch menu and ordered for the first thing that caught my attention from the seafood section — Fish Meuneire. My companions opted for the special $6 lunch of pork...
