THE BIG BREAKFAST IN SOI 8 PUB BANGKOK

This week I decided togo toSoi 8 Pub. I hadnotbeen therein several weeks, so I was overdue for a visit.After having a chat with the owner Dave, I decided to study the menu. I suffered a bit of an ‘analysis paralysis’ because there isso much of a selection.I settled for the English breakfast. WOW! It was avery large plate of food and all for just 185 baht. Some places in Bangkok charge 200-300 baht. Plus youhave to payfor VAT and service charge on top.

Briefly observeDave The Rave’sexpanding waistline and you will see thatI havehad a lot of ‘pub grub’ in my day. Therefore, I feel I have experience in this area…

The old spit ‘n’ sawdust British pubs would sometimes throw in a breakfast for ‘Billy Bunters’ (punters), who stayed overnight at that particular tavern, or inn. By using theEnglish colloquilism’throw in’ it became a literal translation. The buxom barmaid would sling your plate of incinerated fatty food right at you. Nowadays modern pubs are a lot more sophisticated and thank goodness they are!

I have to admit that I am an ardent fan of Soi 8 Pub in Bangkok. Located close to the entrance to Sukhumvit Soi 8, it is conveniently located for respectable folks, as well as piss artists alike! Recently, Soi 8 Pub has expanded the seating area to the left as you walk in the door. While some bar ownersin Bangkok are cutting back, Kiwi Dave isexpandinghis horizons. On Christmas Day, Soi 8 Pub remained full all day. How many bars and restaurants can you say that about?

The service girls wear a smart uniform and they are always friendly and helpful. All in all, it was a terrific tasting, authenticEnglish breakfast.This is a BIGbreakfast, somake sure that you are famished. The service was as efficient as ever. I can confidently say thatthe ‘pub grub’ here is excellent value for money. Soi 8 Pub gets two thumbs up from Dave The Rave… Don’t be shy giveit a try!
