The Alcohol Control Committee (ACC) is mulling a ban on alcohol sales on April 13. If the resolution is approved, that would mean people who would like to indulge in alcohol on the Thai New Year will probably need to buy it earlier.
Well, this isn’t another post out there worshiping a checklist of to-eat’s in Hatyai, Thailand. I don’t normally post about food in my blog, but there is this ONE eatery in Hatyai I just have to recommend to everyone, and it’s not without reasons.
Firstly, this Thai-Chinese old-school boat noodles restaurant is run by my very own good friend, Pom, who always serves me with not one, but two special bowls of beef or pork noodles in generous portions whenever I go visit him.
But to recommend something which I don’t genuinely feel is good isn’t my style, and I don’t do this just because the eatery is run by my friend.
All I can guarantee is the fact that this decade-old restaurant, famously known as Chen Loong Boat Noodles (成龙面条 ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเรือเฉินหลง ใกล้ห้าง Lee Gardens), is probably the best and the most popular one you will ever find in this Southernmost city of Thailand neighboring Malaysia’s Kedah and Perlis.
Named after world-famous Hong Kong actor Jackie Chan, Chen Loong Boat Noodles is situated right in the city center of Hatyai, only less 3 minutes’ walk from the famous Lee Gardens Plaza usually thronged by Malaysian tourists.
