Simple thing, a banana pancake - one of the most popular desserts, you can find it everywhere in Thailand.

But here on Koh Samui, on the main street in Maenam village Mr. Pancake Man is a local institution!!! Very popular with tourists as well as with locals, who constantly turn up at the shop, write their orders in Mr. Khun's book and wait patiently, gossiping with the owner.
It's very local, authentic, pleasant to watch this busy man working and serving his pancakes always with a smile.

I don't have to mention that my pancakes were always yummy, and dead cheap - 25B!!!

Mr. Pancake Man ROCKS!

This became my nightly ritual on the way back to our hotel after dinner. Delicious banana pancakes that melt in the mouth and are so cheap, only 45 baht. Lots of varieties available but banana is my favourite.

Khun Lek´s pancakes are outstanding, wonderfully crisp, the banana (if you chose that variety) warm and just starting to get gooey - but watching Mr. Pancake Man make them is part of the experience. He is a warm-hearted, hard-working man who never stops smiling and keeping his workplace clean. Locals and tourists love this guy and his products and there is always a line... prices start at 15 Baht
