Perfect Pre-Dinner Snack

For those times when you don’t have access to Opa’s home-grilled Thüringer Bratwurst the wares from ubiquitous mini-BBQ stands make a good substitute. Cranky prefers vendors that specialize in one item – such as these perfectly made pork belly skewers on Thalang Road. Each one is cooked to perfect juicyness and all the burnt bits are carefully trimmed away with scissors. You get four for 20 BAT (66 cents), take that Biwa!


Take Five In Phuket

Let the sun set in the old town of Phuket and you will find some streets transformed with old world charm. Very chill jam sessions going on here and there. Why not start a blues bar so you can stand on your own stage every night? Especially the young local musicians impress with smooth licks on bass and guitar.
