My cheat days are back! Those who read my blog since the beginning will know that I used to have a cheat day (usually Fridays) where I’m allowed to eat anything, but later all my my days turned into cheat days but I’m back to my old regime. I invited my family for the newly opened Thai cuisine restaurant, Ubon.
I googled the name Ubon, and it came as a city in south-east region of Thailand, nice. I arrived there at lunch time, sadly I couldn’t find a parking spot and instead of parking in front of Ubon restaurant (which is yellow/black curb) I parked at the nearby parking building. Inside Ubon, it was simply and cozily designed, luckily I found a good table.
I picked the menu and saw dish names that I’m totally clueless about, you see I never visited Thailand or experienced Thai food before but thanks to the supervisor who helped us select the top selling dishes.
We picked Ubon Jumbo Prawns (tasty), Green Papayas (Salad with peanuts, ginger, and grape leaf), and Tom Yum Goong soup (didn’t favor it).
We had their Pepper Beef Garlic (liked it), Green Curry Chicken (tasty) along with Jasmine steamed rice (oil-free and light). For drinks we had regular sodas.
Our check came KD18.200 , so did I like Ubon? Its my first time ever to try pure Thai food but I liked the dishes that I tried (Except the soup), the level of service was great and ambient was pleasant.
My only remark is the limited number of tables, and the parking since the parking beside Ubon are not allowed to use and police patrols will have no problem issuing tickets. I asked if they got delivery, they said shortly.
