Someone brought me to a hidden gem for lunch this afternoon, pad thai. Its in the neighbouring province Patumthani. Why is this a hidden gem? Well its located under a big flyover. Not so easily accessible. (watch my video).

 


 


 

Its kindda like makeshift place

I believe anyone who had visited Thailand will know krapow-moo-saab (Thai basils minced pork) rice is the favourite meal here in Thailand as its a simple dish with vegetable, meat and rice a full meal on a plate. 

 

Another favourite that can also be found almost everywhere is khao-ka-moo or braised pork knuckle rice. This morning a friend introduced me to a shop thats very popular at the vicinity around it. Was told this shop had been around for more than  50 years.

 

Can hardly find this shop thats hidden behind the plants

Jim Jum (Chim Chum) is a clay pot hot pot dish found all over Thailand. Customers will order fresh meats and vegetables mix with egg and cook it in a broth. I always wonder why Thais living is a very hot country like to eat hot pot in this heat however when I eat it I can understand its comfort food that can be eaten with close friends and have fun socialising.

 

After work at 8pm went to a jim jum  joint located at a roadside open air restaurant

nice. Will check it out next time I go north.

 

how's the air in Tak? It's still quite bad in Chiang Mai...

Are you heading further north or going to Mae Sot?

 

I like exploring the old city ruins in Kamphaeng Phet.

Restaurant is known as Pimgview - https://goo.gl/maps/9vUBZGdDdTw

 

Air is clear in Tak. Will spend some time here tomorrow and turn back to Bangkok tomorrow evening or Monday morning. 

 

Its a very nice drive as the expansion of the highway had completed some time last year.

Tak Province is the 4th largest province in Thailand

 

But with a population of only half a million it’s 75th in terms of people density out of 76 provinces.

 

Many mountains here and a famous district of Tak Province is Mae Sot popular with tourists as there’re many hill tribes there. Being a gateway into Myanmar this district is also infamous for trafficking

 

In Thailand province has a capital city with the same name as the province but identified as Mueang which means city. Chiangmai province has a Mueang Chiangmai which most people are familiar with. Some cities like Chiangmai, Khon Kaen, Ubon etc are real cities but some capital “cities” are kore like a town like Mueang Tak. This is basically Mueang Tak
