Noodle Soup Restaurant at Ban Pa Tio

Noodle Soup Restaurant at Ban Pa Tio (บ้านป่าติ๋ว) — 10 min walk from Baan Sammi.
Recently, a small noodle soup restaurant has opened on a property in the corner of the road T-junction in Ban Pa Tio (บ้านป่าติ๋ว), not far from Wat Pitayaram (วัดปีตยาราม), which is listed on Google Maps. The restaurant is only open from (late?) morning to early afternoon, but may be closed on certain dates without prior notice. Only one dish is offered: a pork noodle soup. You can eat in the restaurant, or you can take the food away, but there is no delivery service to Baan Sammi so far.

Restaurant Pa Yang Poi

Restaurant Pa Yang Poi — opposite Baan Sammi. — ร้านอาหาร ป่ายางปอย
Since December 2017, a new rustic Thai restaurant has opened just opposite Baan Sammi with access from the village road (Pa Yang Poi – Pa Tio Road). All our guests who had lunch or dinner there told us the food was delicious. The restaurant is run by Mrs. Tib (คุณทิป). The prices are low, from 35 to 60 Baht per dish, and we received a handwritten menu in Thai, consisting of 21 dishes, most offered in different ingredients. Originally the restaurant was open daily, 10:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., and 5:00 – 9:00 p.m., but then it was closed by the end of February 2018. Fortunately, food has been still offered since early May 2018, but only during the evening and only on pre-order (by personal contact or by telephone, a few hours in advance or one day in advance). The food can be eaten in the restaurant or it can be delivered to Baan Sammi.

Pharmacy Jip Ang Tueng Osot, in China Town

Pharmacy Jip Ang Tueng Osot L. P. — ร้านขายยา ห้างหุ้นส่วนจำกัด จิบอังตึ้งโอสถ
This pharmacy is located in the heart of China Town, also well-known as Warorot Market. It has drugs that I could not find in other pharmacies. This is the main reason for the recommendation, but it is always advisable to visit several different pharmacies to find out if a particular drug is on stock, can be ordered or not. Also, a price comparison is advisable, including an inquiry as to whether a discount (for drugs in bulk quantity) can be granted.

Actually, Kham Thiang Market is a plant market where you can buy all kind of living plants, e.g. trees, shrubs, bamboos, and herbaceous plants. Most plants are decorative or ornamental garden plants, but plants useful for food or landscaping can be found, too. There are many shops specialized in certain plants like orchids, ferns, succulents, palms, roses, water plants and so on. In addition, there are shops for gardeners' utilities and tools. It is a pleasent market area to stroll around and look at all the numerous exotic plants. Most plants are in flower, because they can be sold better if a customer can see the flowers. There are at least 2 coffee shops within the market area, inviting you to take a rest.
