Jones The Grocer

IMG_3482.JPGSituated in Em Quartier, this lovely little restaurant and grocery store is located across from the Food Hall on the first floor. It’s a great place to drink some New Zealand wines and stop for lunch in between shopping and beauty treatments.

They have several different gluten free items on their menu, including a tasty beet root and goat cheese salad, roast chicken and this delicious salmon dish with sautéed cabbage and mustard seeds. Oh, and did I mention their French fries are gluten free as well? They are cooked in their own dedicated fryer. I’m not sure where else you can find gf chips and homemade ketchup. Bliss!

The Holy Grill Koh Phangan

The owners at The Holy Grill are always cooking up a storm! I had the pleasure of eating there twice on my recent holiday to Koh Phangan.

The first meal was a BBQ to support a local animal shelter and half of the fee went towards their charity! The owner spoke to me about what I could have – and there was plenty to eat! We dined on hamburgers (sans bun), some delicious salads and grilled veggies.

The second meal was similar, but they had a hog roast for Christmas eve. I had some roast hog and pork steaks from the grill. Despite the rain, the restaurant was packed and the food was even better than the first visit.

BBQ prices range from 200-400 baht, depending on what’s on the grill.

The Holy Grill is located in Chaloklum, about 500m from World’s End Cafe.

baganAfter a few sweaty days of motorbikes and dusty streets in Mandalay, Bagan was a refreshing feast for the eyes!

I stayed at the Bagan Umbra Hotel and was pleased with the pool and accommodation. Rooms ranged from 40-90USD depending on what you wanted. They had a newer wing with rooms overlooking the pool and I would assume that they were closer to 90USD a night. This was a great location as temples were located only a few minutes away, and Old Bagan was a quick bike ride too. Did I mention that this hotel had a pool?
