Soi 38 Thai Restaurant Melbourne

Soi 38 Soi Yummy

It was an impromptu date in an unassuming restaurant, which I have seen plenty in Singapore but never in Melbourne.

For the lack of pretentiousness alone, I knew it would be a treat to eat at Soi 38. A place I have been wanting to go to since last year, but no-thanks to Covid and whatnot, it only happened this week.

Soi 38 is located inside a Wilson Parking carpark in Melbourne CBD area. I made a booking for 6.15 PM (booking is highly recommended) at 5.45 PM and went to The Paperback bookshop to spend time there while waiting for Fafa who had a gym class.

At 6.30 PM, we have put our order in: Thai BBQ set, Thai iced tea, coconut juice, Som Tum as the entree and my fave mango sticky rice dessert. The BBQ set came with various meat and seafood, noodles, vegetables and a single egg—all to be cooked on the tabletop bbq stove.

To say I was delighted would be an understatement.

The food, dipped in their homemade Thai sauce, was delicious. And the crowd was interesting. That evening, the place was bursting with diversity, from suit-wearing business people to pierced belly flashing student.

I will come back again, bring all my friends and recommend Soi 38 to anyone.

Last Night in Phuket

Hello from Phuket.

We took the ferry back from Phi Phi island this morning. The itinerary for the day was supposed to be a bit of rest and a lot of roaming around. Unfortunately, we both got food poisoning, with Fafa having it much worse than me. So we decided to stay, rest (and hopefully recuperate) in the hotel instead.

Thankfully, we had a good sense to book a fancy-ish hotel for our last night stay here.

Sad Salmon Dish

I just finished taking the longest luxurious hot shower of my life. And now silently (so as not to wake Fafa up) eating American style sad salmon dish instead of the delicious spicy Thai food to give my suffering stomach a break.

I am typing up this on my iPhone note app to be published later because however horrible we feel at the moment, it will one day be memories.
