Another hidden gem that we have discovered is the "veggie place." For forty baht (less than two American dollars), you can get an entire meal consisting of brown rice and stir-fried organic vegetables and meats. For dessert, you needn't look far, and on the top of the list is The Volcano. Soft, thick Japanese brick toast is served smothered in caramel, condensed milk, and fresh cut bananas. With the first bite you are overwhelmed with flavor, and the focus goes from your previous conversation, to a determination to finish every last piece, which actually proves to be a pretty daunting task. Almost every other building is another restaurant, and although we have found our favorites, we try our hardest to branch out and try new things.
When I came here, I thought I would crave American food every day, but my experience has been quite the opposite (even though my first stop from the airport will be an In-n-Out drive-thru). With less than two weeks remaining, there are plenty of new restaurants and food carts to experience and I can't wait to find my next favorite.
