Just a warning, if you go to dinner at the Ruenthong Restaurant at the Laithong Hotel in Ubon Ratchathani be warned not to go before 6 p.m. if you are going to eat Western Food. They don't serve it before that time, only Thai food.
The waiters and waitresses do not know what dinner is. I said to them I would like to have dinner, table for 1 and show me where to go, it was pity full , they could not understand me, after a few tries they realised that I wanted food. So I picked my own spot as it was frustrating to talk any further with them.
I was given a menu and than told that Western food is served from 6p.m onwards so I had to wait 30 minutes to order. I than ordered Thai fried rice and a carafe of red wine to kill the time. When I was ready to order I beckoned the waitress over and said I wanted pork chop, well done with vegetables of the day, I named them but in return she said the chop comes with apple sauce. So I quizzed her and she repeatedly said only chop and apple sauce . So in the end I had to call the manager and ask if this was true, said no I could have any vegetables I wanted. So I chose them for myself. Everything looked good on the plate until you put a few chunks of meat and veggies to your mouth, it was sweet, a lot of sugar. As you know Thais put a lot of sugar in their foods. So it was not a good evening.
As I know it apple sauce is more of a saucy texture, but the one I got was apple sliced and place on the pork chop, so I was eating 2 thin pieces of fruit, to be correct.
