+1 (except for you description of the chips! 555)"As for 'Surin Dinosaur' me I wouldn't be caught dead on site at a 18-24 every night on Entertainment Soi Surin."
18 - 24? You mean 6 to 12 p.m.?
I like Hippie House myself. Go a couple times a week. Usually around 8 or so. Good food, music, beers and booze, his coffee is excellent. I left a bottle of Bailey's there to top up my coffee when I want. His staff is very cute and pleasant. As are some of the female persuasion that hang around there. And he's a good dude and I want to help with some custom so as to keep him in business hopefully now the Covid is supposedly over. I wish more local farang would do the same and stop in for a bite to eat (seriously, the kid cooking the food there is very good, as is the food and menu items) and a drink or two. WiFi and good music on the stereo or when live music is available. I like to sit out front and watch the people walk by and just chill for a couple hours.
I think getting out of the house and meeting people is good for the soul (no need to be a hermit here, plenty of friendly locals), and I want to help out the local businesses, not just the farang businesses, but the Thai businesses as well. It's not exorbitantly expensive by any means. A couple beers, a coffee, and some food. Last time I went the bill was like 250 baht. For some excellent khao pat gai, a couple beer Lao, and a coffee. I say excellent as the kid cooking does it exaclty how it should be. I hate oily khao pat. His is perfect. I find his khao pat comparable to Fon and Waen's. Done just the way it should be. His fries are beautiful too. Crispy, and served with both ketchup and mayo for dipping. So, unless you are a heavy drinker, it is inexpensive to get out some and enjoy yourself and mingle.
As an added plus my wife also enjoys their foods and the laid back atmosphere. And she is picky about her food.
