My son asked if he could have a "nice" meal for his birthday - and despite me trying to get him to sample the delights of a Beijing HotPot, he was adamant it should be Thai. So - Ruan Siam, I remember it being Ruan...More

Red Thai chicken curry (takeaway) should be simply renamed Sweet chicken. I make this dish following a recipe book at home and it is ten times better than this effort. Virtually no Thai flavour and simply tasted of sugar.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
