Long Du Restaurant and Coffee Shop
A new restaurant and coffee shop has opened near my place. The owner and chef spent six years in England working as a cook in a Thai restaurant. So far, I've only tried the coffee.

The boiled chickens hanging in the glass case will be used to make the Thai/Chinese dish Khao Man Gai which is sliced chicken breast served over rice, usually with cucumber on the side.

Vietnam Style Drip Coffee
The ground coffee is put in the metal filter which is placed over the coffee cup. It takes about five minutes for the coffee to drip through. It's very nice. This method of making coffee is very popular in Vietnam, but I haven't seen it much in Thailand.
