Apricot House [Phratamnak soi 4]


ThailandWine&Dine

Recommended Posts

Wandering around this morning, LK Metro area, town has a depressing feel to it early on, even more so in low season. None of the usual haunts appealed, so I drove back up Pratamnak thinking I might head for Cabbages & Condoms. On my way down soi 4 I spotted a restaurant on the left (not far from Gerry's Bar) I hadn't noticed before - "Apricot House". Why not?

 

Not a great start; although a group of four had already had their orders taken, after 10 minutes still no sign of any staff, so I headed for the kitchen.

 

A menu was produced, Thai/ international food, and an emphasis on dishes from the southern Caucasus. Owner Narek explained that it was a family-run business, and they were originally from Armenia. The restaurant had been open six months.

 

Nice decor, simple, with a comfortable seating area outside. I picked the 'House Deluxe' set menu (see photo); a traditional Armenian barbecue, served with something called a 'Shepherd's Garnish', pita bread, tan (?), and a glass of house red, all for 345 baht. Armenian cuisine is a first for me, so I didn't know what to expect.

 

The meal came quickly. The pork fillet had been marinated before cooking; it was delicious and very tender. The Shepherd's Garnish was very similar to a slow-cooked French ratatouille. The pita bread was very tasty.

 

At first sight the 'tan' looked like a glass of milk... it turns out that this is a daily drink in Armenia, similar to a Greek yoghurt, but mixed with water and salt. I was a bit dubious about how this would go with my glass of wine, but Narek assured me that it's an excellent drink for the digestion. Ok I'll try anything once. It was actually really good. 3 hours on I'm suffering no ill effects from the strange combination, so maybe I should have a glass or two every day.

 

Finds like this are great. It really was an excellent meal, prepared with care and pride, another example of how small 'home cooking' restaurants can rival the fine dining establishments at a cheaper price - and without the pretentiousness. Without a doubt I shall be going back soon

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
