We Said: Thai Treats

We love Lamai, it is Lamailicious! Enjoy our first SlideShare with photos of where we like to eat in Lamai, Koh Samui, Thailand!

We have been in Lamai for over a month now and love all our nearby restaurants and new friends. We eat often at: Balance run by Rocky (they have a new baby born on June 9, 2013), Rock Island run by Bea and deklek 9 month old Poi, Ta's run by Ta, Ton Kun for fruit shakes by Ann, RCT, Weekender with Brian, Krapkabang with Sic and Kit, Ninja Crepes and Thai Food next to Sense and Soul (Their new baby was born in May 2013). 

We will be doing a few posts on our site to highlight our favorites and their fantastic food like Basil Chicken, Cashew Nut Chicken, Panang Chicken and Pad See Ew. At every one of these local establishments, we get fresh reasonably priced healthy food. We also get Thai lessons! At Ninja crepes, they even have our favorite game Rummy Tiles and 70baht food. George rehearses with the band on Tuesdays and plays on Fridays at Rock Island House. I usually hold baby Poi or color with nine-year-old Angie! We plan to be in Koh Samui for the rest of June and all of July! Come visit!
