Just traveled to Chanthaburi for a vacation. My group stayed in Cabin Creek Home stay with a convenient location next to a creek as the name suggest. I would recommend this place for a lazy vacation day in nature surroundings.

Watkhaobanchob are located close to Cabin creek and the place is close to Pratoosawan which translates literally to “Heaven’s Gate” The place is just amazing for a slow and relaxing walk in nature.

Recently stumbled upon an interesting organic cafe with distinct Glasshouse structure in a garden in Sukhumvit area. With some curiosity, I’ve entered the place to further explore the cafe.

The main cafe located in the glasshouse consists of organic bakery, Thai dessert, Thai food in Pinto(little food container with distinct silver color) and organic products which percentages of sales are donated in developing provinces in Nakhonpatom area.

I’ve went for a Kanomthuay 10THB/piece  (consisted of coconut milk, loaf sugar and flour). Having quality dessert with greenery scenery is one of the best way to energize  and relax myself in weekend.

The cafe also consisted of outdoor garden to enjoy a good cup of coffee, tea or cocoa. Gotta say that the outdoor garden are one of the most impressive place I’ve visited.

Starting my exploring with drunken cat figure in the alley. I don’t know what to expect from this alley in Dotonbori. However, I press on to find local Okonomiyaki place as recommended from locals.

The place is filled with people chatting and having a good time. I felt like this is a kind of place for hanging out after a long day. Then I ordered Beef tendon + Green onions + Konyaku and added pork and soba noodles.

As I sit in the counter and enjoying cooking show, I found it rather difficult to control myself in front of these gorgeous looking Okonomiyaki.

Finally, my menu has arrived! The texture of flour is well-blended and not too coarse. Fresh ingredient also supports the Okonomiyaki for a delicious menu. Especially beef tendon, I would order extra beef tendon as a la carte if they have it.

That’s all for my review. In my opinion, the place is great to try out local food with local environment. See you next later and hope you have a wonderful day 😊
