Koh Samui – Day #6 – Lamai Sunday Nightmarket

markets

armbands
Crazy arm bands.

oyster
Star was craving fresh oysters, which we haven’t found at the resort we’re staying at, but she got lucky at the markets today.

bugs
BUGS!

Tonight Star and I checked out the Lamai Sunday Nightmarkets, about 20 minutes away from our resort. Star bought a shitload of local textiles and yup, WE ATE BUGS! So so bad. Not the texture, nor the taste, just the fucking thought, and how in-tact the whole grasshopper was. I’m pretty much game to eat anything, but these bugs were way too full on for me to just scoff down by the handful!

The food we cooked served to us in the restaurant.

Star and I booked in for a Thai cooking class today and it was awesome fun! We made a beef salad, Tom Yum Goong, a roast duck salad, cashew nut stir fry and banana coconut dessert, all of which was served to us in the Koh Samui fine dining restaurant post class.

O’le

Ved introduced me to O’le a few years ago and we’ve gone back a few times since. Ole’s a small Portuguese style restaurant that does super fresh and clean chicken burgers that don’t leave you feeling like you’re gonna die from bloat post feed. I recommend!

Celebrated Mum’s B’Day dinner at KOI Dessert Bar, which is owned by Reynold, that Asian kid who killed it on Master Chef last year. LOVED IT! Will be back for more!

Wheels are the same width all round, so in this pic you can really see the difference between a stretched 235 and a fat 255.

FAT RUBBER FTW! Much thanks to Toyo Tyres Australia for the R1R’s going on our S15 build. The wheels are the same size all round so we’ve gone for a staggered set of tyres. 235’s at the front and 255’s at the rear. The rears look damn fat! So fat that the tyres stick out just past the rim’s face. Perfecto! The front’s were a bit of a stretch, but we’re thinking this might not be a bad thing as 9.5 wide rims are pretty wide for the front.

Nanami took me to YAYOI who have opened up at The Galeries (where Kinokuniya is) and it’s awesome! If you love the more fishy stuff you’ll love YAYOI. Super clean food, tummy was so happy post meal!

Brooklyn Boy Bagels

Reuben on rye complete with McClure’s pickles (yum!) with a side serving of McClure’s spicy chips if you’re really hungry.

brooklynboybagels
But the bagels are where it’s at! A garlic bagel with Bacon Bourbon and Maple cream cheese.

BBB is becoming a bit of a haunt for me as they’re just down the road and their bagels are so good (I’ve got so many more bagels and fillings to try!).

Finally got to drop past Mike’s new Burger & Hip Hop Joint Belfield on Botany earlier today to try out their cheeseburger, and it didn’t disappoint! Love the shop, the feel, the vibe, the crew and the location too as it’s just 10 minutes away from my place!

Mike runs PlusSixOne, a label which we used to stock at Zen Garage. He’s outdone himself with Belfield, such an awesome job!

PS: The burger sat in my tummy so nice. Gotta love clean food (I didn’t suffer from a food coma post meal).
