Duck and DimSum, Khon Kaen, New Menu and More

I quite enjoy every visit to this restaurant that is located on Naa Muang Road right across the street from in "SYNC" nightclub at the Khon Kaen Hotel.
The first thing I noticed was the new many and second some additions to the menu.
I ordered the new springroll and was quite suprised when it arrived, There is much more gravy than in the photo, and that is not a complaint. I was too full to get more info about it, but it is not your everyday por pia (spring roll). Not Thai or Vietnamese it sure seems to be of Chinese origin. As usual the duck was perfect, meatly, lean, with cripsy skin. The dimsum types are not extensive, but it is no small selection.
If duck and or dimsum are what you are looking for this is an economical foodgasmal place to stop

The Roti Lady is Back, Khon Kaen, Thailand

She has been gone for way too long, Back to Pakistan, said her son who sells vegetables at Beung Kaen Nakhon, here in Khon Kaen. Sweet or Savory she can satisfy the belly. The folks here seem to favor her sweet banana roti, but my weekly treat is the chicken roti,  Bits of chicken, fried onion and please no one tell me how many eggs, She also does a saffron rice and chicken leg, By the numbers buying and the smile on her face I am pretty sure the neighborhood is glad to have her back.

It's about Food Jun 11, 2012 #AmazingThailand

Isaan food is best when not eaten alone, Food should be shared and enjoyed with people whose company one enjoys, Last week wa wonderful for a number of reasons one of which was not eating alone. And the selection of Isaan food through the week was not so varied, but good old standard fare. The exception was Friday dinner. A Foodgasmic curry soup with prawns and omelette and fried lahp balls. The balls were even better after a swim in the curry soup.
