Tam Mua Restaurant is located on Ladprao 101. Getting there is simple. From Ratchadapisek and Ladprao Road, head towards The Mall Bangkapi.When you reach Ladprao 101, turn left and head straight for approximately 300 meters. The restaurant will be on the left side of the street.
Tam Mua specializes in tradition Issan, or Northeastern, Thai food. You'll see a host of traditional dishes from the Issan province. I was tempted to try the red ant omelet but I have eaten this before so I went with the fried chicken and pork omelet.
Roughly translated in to English, Tam Mua means “Just Pounded.” Pounded as in chili peppers and papaya seeds. Pounded as in, the best part of sex is after being pounded. Relating to the restaurant, the most intense flavors comes after the pounding. But in the case of this restaurant, the English translation is more along the line of "Being Promiscuous."
Saturday my son and I went to the Talad Nam Kwan Riam in Bangkok, on Ramkhamhaeng 187. We came across an OTOP Stall where they make roti, coffee, and tea. The roti are giant, the biggest I've ever seen, but what makes the stall truly unique is the dancing, whirling, twirling, rather large coffee and tea maker. Watch the video and you'll see what I mean...Apparently, these guys are more prevalent in the south of Thailand.
I understand number twelve is "find a job in Thailand" but this basically means do whatever you have to do, legally, using the skills you have or can attain while here.
If you prepare and do your research, you should be able to arrive in Thailand and hit the ground running. In most cases though, you will need to be educated, proficient at something, or have a special talent to make a go of it abroad.
Disclaimer - some of the jobs mentioned are illegal. I am not advocating working
illegally or doing anything against the law. Do the crime, do the time. Up to you.
Choke Dee Dim Sum is a franchise with locations in Bangkok, Chonburi, Prajuapkirikan, Khon Kaen, and Udonthani. I went to their restaurant located on Nawamin Road, Nawamin 66 . I was excited to check out a restaurant specializing in dim sum, however, my excitement quickly changed to disappointment.
If you want dim sum that makes you want to keep ordering, go to Shangri-la Restaurant on Yaowarat Road in Chinatown. If you want quick dim sum in a more convenient location, save your taxi fare and go to 7'11. Their dim sum is every bit as good as what is served at Choke Dee Dim Sum, if not better.
