Hi there,

My name is Darling (really, really, really) but you can call me Ling. I used to work at Khon Kean University as a lecturer in hospitality management. I quit my job and spend most of my time doing volunteer work, gardening, taking care of my husband and kid, and running a small cooking school for kids.

I live in Khon Kean almost my whole life except those time when I went to study in Melbourne, Australia for my Master and PhD. If you want to know anything about Khon Kean (especially cooking, planting and volunteering), I would be more than happy to help. Nice to be the member of this wonderful forum.

Cheers,

Ling

Wow Ling!  What a fantastic introduction.  BIG WELCOME.  Guys, take a minute to say hello to Ling and introduce yourselves.

The best way to see content on the forum that you enjoy is to post interesting and stimulating content that others are likely to reply to.

Cheers,

Rex

hello Darling 555

Maybe you could recommend 1 or 2 restaurants that are not very well known amongst the farangs.

Hi Screamer,
There so many nice restaurants in Khon Kean that haven't been discovered by Farang. If you like Esan food, I would recommend you to go to Daun Pissawas  Restaurant (ด่วนพิศวาส) located next to the railway near Central plaza. When I was a lecturer at Khon Kean Uni, I always take my guest speaker there because the food is good and the hospitality is great. If you like Vietnamese food, you should go to Amporn Namneung Restaurant (อัมพรเเหนมเนือง) located right across the road from the famous Nong Waeng temple. I have been eating at this restaurant since I was a kid (now I am 40 years old). Like I said there are so many nice restaurant here so please let me know what kind of food you are looking for and I will recommend the best restaurant to go to.

Cheers,

Ling

As you suggested, Ling, my wife and I ate at Daun Pissawas  Restaurant (ด่วนพิศวาส).   It was excellent especially if you like Thai and Isan food.  I especially like the very spicy, 2-5 chilis, menu items like Som Tum Thai.  My wife knows the owner who used to own Rad Pub before they got strict on the age issue.

I heartily recommend it.  There is also a great Chiang Mai style restaurant on Prachasamoson Road that we frequent, as well as the Vietnamese restaurant you suggested.  We also have found, ตุลย์เสวย, which is very close to the Metro 2 Condos, as well as the Larb Ped Restaurant on Lao Nadi Road, west of its intersection with the Bypass, to be excellent.

Just had a walk round looking for Daun Pissawas restaurant but couldn't find it.
Can you be any more specific about its location?
I walked from the station along Darun Samoan Alley and then back up the narrow Sri Chan road.

I believe it's the place behind the big tree.

located next to the railway near Central plaza.

Is my identity my own?
Why does anybody feel the need to f**k with it??

My apologies and I will blame it on the heat.

The Vietnamese place set back off Glang Muang Road is still excellent and ridiculously cheap.
