7 mouthwatering food sanctuaries in Phuket and Krabi to satisfy all your cravings!

Remember how everyone freaked out when news broke early this year of a ban on Thailand’s beloved street food stalls? That’s how passionate Singaporeans feel about food, even if it’s from another country. And relax foodies, those vendors aren’t going anywhere.

If you’re on the look out for famously cheap eats and popular food haunts to add to your to-try list, you’ve clicked on the right article. Here are seven featured food venues to sample Thailand’s much-loved local dishes, where even the Thais themselves love to frequent!

Aroonsom Patong Food Park, Phuket

Located close to the coast, the Aroonsom Patong Food Park is a seafood lover’s dream that extends two whole blocks along the prolific Rat-U-Thit Road. An assortment of fresh fishes, crustaceans, giant prawns and other underwater delicacies are popular orders at this open-air dining court—at reasonable prices too! The food park may be a far cry from luxury dining, but its food speaks for itself and never fails to draw big crowds of tourist and locals alike. 

Opening Hours: 17:00 – 01:00 

Location: Rat-U-Thit Road, opposite Siam Commercial Bank, Patong, Phuket 

Pa Mai Kanom Jeen, Phuket 

Breakfast is the most important and tastiest meal of the day when devoured at this well-known breakfast joint, where the Kanom Jeen is considered a traditional Thai breakfast staple. In fact, the restaurant is almost always full with hungry patrons. You’ll have to wait for someone else to finish their meal before ‘chope-ing’ a seat of your own. Once you do, pick a plate of plain rice noodles, select your meaty curry sauce of choice from the large pots at the counter before topping off your meal with fresh veggies and aromatic herbs. Mmm hmm! 

 Opening Hours: 05:30 – 11:00

It’s a city state that’s v developed. It’s main language is English, but mandarin and Malay are major languages spoken here. It has 5 million people, incredible food, wonderful culture, amazing plants, and now I live here. I never thought I would move back this soon, but here I am.

He’s restoring. He’s making new. I have a lot of emotional brokenness, I have a lot of weariness from my own failures.
But I’m way better than I’ve been in the past, I’m more confident in relationships, I’m bold in stepping out and speaking up when I wanna be silent. He is teaching me that He is Lord, but extremely personal and intimate. He knows every detail of my life and wants me to be Glad in the fullness of who he is. He is teaching me to love without measure, without a quota. He is loving me so well.

Where to Eat at MAGFest / Katsucon

By: Koumori No Hime Cosplay

It’s almost the New Year, and with that comes two of the most popular conventions in the DC metro area: MAGFest and Katsucon. Both of these conventions take place at the Gaylord National Harbor, a beautiful hotel that exists almost in its’ own little world. While I can’t review the food in the hotel proper (I try to avoid hotel dining as it tends to be on the pricier side- especially room service!) here are my reviews of some of the restaurants in the surrounding area.


1. Cadillac Ranch (http://www.cadillacranchgroup.com/location/national-harbor/)
Cadillac Ranch is just a quick walk away from the convention center and serves the usual American bar-food fare. It is a sit-down type restaurant and does serve alcohol for those of legal age. My friends try to go there at least once per convention, if only for the loaded fry appetizer: cheesy, bacon-y, ranch-y goodness.


2. CVS (http://www.cvs.com/store-locator/store-locator-landing.jsp?_requestid=876370)
CVS is not a restaurant, it’s a convenience store, but it does sell prepackaged food and beverages if you are short on cash and have a refrigerator in your hotel room. Just be aware, it is not a 24-hour establishment, so check hours to avoid disappointment.


3. Elevation Burger (http://eb.gustofb.com/?c=1020&l=1110#/?c=1020&l=1110)
Elevation burger is actually not that far from the convention center, but it feels like an eternity walking there in frigid howling winds, so plan accordingly. It serves burgers, fries, and shakes, but is definitely a step up in quality from McDonalds. It also includes grilled cheese on the menu if you are vegetarian, and you can add toppings to your cheese sandwich just like the burgers (I personally like adding fresh tomatoes).


4. Subway (https://www.nationalharbor.com/stores/subway/)
Subway is the same basic Subway you see all over the USA. The one thing that it has going in the National Harbor is that it is one of the few places open for breakfast.


5. Thai Pavilion (https://www.nationalharbor.com/stores/thai-pavillion/)
Thai Pavilion serves delicious Thai food in generous quantities that is an absolute delight on a cold convention evening. Just look for the ornate silver door and you will know you have arrived. It is a sit-down type restaurant, so expect to spend some time there, but this is one of my favorite places to eat in the National Harbor.


6. Chipotle (https://order.chipotle.com/)
The usual Chipotle you find in the rest of the US. Build your own burrito and eat it there, or get a burrito to stash in the hotel mini-fridge for midnight snacking like my friend does.


7. Potbelly Sandwich Shop (https://m.potbelly.com/locations/md/oxon-hill/national-plaza/)
A bit more gourmet than Subway, Potbelly’s serves hot soup and sandwiches.


8. Nando’s Peri-Peri (https://www.nandosperiperi.com/eat/restaurants/national-harbor)
I will admit my view of this restaurant is a bit tarnished. Last time I was there we ended up waiting two hours from walking in the door, to ordering, to finally getting our food. At that time, the staff was overwhelmed with both dine-in and take-out orders. Hopefully they will have learned how to manage convention rush, but I don’t plan on returning anytime soon.


9. Fiorella’s Italian Kitchen (http://www.fiorellapizzeria.com/menu)
Perhaps because it isn’t as visible from the street as some of the other restaurants, Fiorella’s didn’t have the long lines that the others did the one time we went. And going there was a fantastic decision. We were tired, cold, and hungry, and a nice big bowl of alfredo was everything we wanted.



These are only a handful of the places to eat around the Gaylord, but I hope this gave you some ideas for your next convention! Check out the National Harbor website for more (https://www.nationalharbor.com/), an let me know in the comments if there is anything you think I missed.

anonymous asked:

What's your opinion of Misha's wife?

I LOVE Vicki.

She comes across as someone who doesn’t like the limelight very much (totally cool, it ain’t for everybody), so there aren’t a whole load of pics of her floating around, but from the little I’ve seen of her aesthetically, fucking love her. I’ve always liked people who are similar to me (as narcisstic as that sounds): dark hair, dorky glasses and sunny smile. Vicki is not conventionally attractive, which I dig hardcore because she is definitely my kind of attractive. She also a body far beyond her age, which, may I remind you, has seen the strain of pregnancy. Twice. She must have some magic voodoo going on or something because she is gorgeous, seriously.

But, it’s not even the looks that make me love her.

I love that she indulges Misha. I sometimes get the impression that she’s like ‘oh my god can you just freaking act your age you moron’ but regardless, she’s always there to video his antics or to join in (like the Thai breakfast one OMG) and I think that that is such a desirable trait of a great relationship. In one of her books, the acknowledgement towards Misha reads ‘for my husband, even though this book wasn’t his cup of tea’ and I think that’s so great, you know? That these two people have so much in common, but they also have their differences in opinion but they support each other regardless. I admire that a lot.

I also love her thoughts and her writing process. I own her Threesome Handbook, and I love the way she talks in it. She swears, she doesn’t sugar-coat anything and she says whatever the fuck she wants. She doesn’t leave out the gritty details and she’s a big advocate of everyone having fun. She is no stranger to insecurities – she talks about fighting with the knowledge that she’s bisexual and even at the very end of the book, she talks about whether she should put her real name on it instead of a pen name, because she still doesn’t know. I LOVE that. She is confident and sassy but she still has things that sometimes knock her for six, but she does them anyway, despite the fear of the consequences. Go her.

I LOVE THAT SHE’S A DOCTOR. No, seriously. Dr. Victoria Vantoch. UGH. *Shivers with delight*

She spent six years doing a PhD and DSGLKDSDASD ARGGGHHHH I HAVE SO MANY FEELS ABOUT THIS. I mean like… how the fuck did she decide her thesis? How did she plan it? How did she go about it? How many times did she blow up at Misha because it was stressing her out? How many sleepless nights did she have? Did she write it in pieces? Was it like a fog, trying to find the right words to put down? Did it suddenly just come together? How many words? How many pages? How many references? Would she do it again? Was her thesis the original one or did she change halfway through? How did she manage to do it while being pregnant and giving birth and raising West and Maison? Did it make her scream, laugh, cry? How did she feel when it was done? How many times did she swear at the screen when writing it? SO. MANY. QUESTIONS. (I’m a Psychology graduate, and I’m about to start a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology in September. This shit speaks to me. It’s like academic porn.)

Can I just add about the stories Misha tells his fans about Vicki? All those little anecdotes about her are just wonderful, and I drink them in like a person dying of thirst. I can never get enough hearing about her.

I love that Vicki is her own person. She doesn’t ride off of Misha’s success – she does her own thing. Misha describes her as ‘astounding’ and she sounds it. I would die for an evening with her. I want to talk politics and academics and good food and sex and travelling experiences with her. I want to ask Misha for all the stories about her. I want to know what she’s done, where’s she’s been…

I just want to know Vicki. I really do.

I love her.
