Hi guys.

Very quick shout out for the Hungry Hippo diner on soi Buakhao.

I have eaten ther every day for a week and everything has been excellent.

Breakfast specials run til 12.00 with small English with tea or coffee at 68bt which was plenty for me.

large I think was only 99bt.

They run a large selection of meals to suit everyone I'm sure. The Fish and chips were superb at 129bt

and tonight I had sweet and sour chicken and rice also delicious.

no kick back or affiliation to them at all but if someone try's hard they deserve recognition.

Sure you wouldn't be disappointed.

Is there anyone here, who thought Chunky Monkey's food was bland, but has found Hungry Hippo to be better?

I have eaten in both and like each of them. Not much between them both offer very similar food, just have a slight preference for Hungry Hippo.

From my experience, Hungry Hippo seems to he the busier of the two. One other difference, Chunky Monkey closes later than Hungry Hippo.

i had beef stew today 139 baht, comes with mash and bread, i expected it to be bland but was very good quality for the price.

it's good that HH isn't just churning out cheap food but also trying their best to produce good food.

Chicken roast dinner also very good

I've eaten a few times there lately and all the meals have been excellent and good value, especially their breakfast 99 baht and mini mixed grill 119 baht.

The breakfast is excellent at 99 baht, the roast chicken not bad , as for the daily specials i would avoid mostly inedible slop. Eaten here about 7 times over the last 2 weeks, for me its only really a breakfast go to, or the sunday roast,  just as bad as the inedible specials was listening to the owner constantly whinging about everything that is life whilst he occupied a table with a friend, happened at  least 4 times and i was 4 tables away each time

Was it as bad as the 80s music? i have to put earphones in. But to be fair I don't want to hear farang talking guff, which another reason i go upstairs

I only noticed the music once when I had the first table from the tv, after that I tried to sit up towards the glass doors and away from robin

I had the 99baht breakfast this week and it was just meh! Wouldn't go back, 1 sausage was decent, bacon was poor, eggs were kind of flat looking not much of a yolk, fried potato was cut too small and deep fried. The toast was nice and thick with tiny portion of butter and the coffee was quite good. I'd describe it as average Retox was better imo.

Going to give nickys a try tomorrow heard its quite good.

We will obviously have to differ. I have eaten the breakfast there multiple times since Retox lengkee shut and I think it is marginally better. Tomatoes have been much better......

Nicky's is my go,to place   For an English breakfast much better quality than the HH offering but about 60B dearer But inc weetabix or corn flakes which is a nice Touch and plenty of butter on the toast.

Mr magoo

Just came across this, which was posted on my FB newsfeed.

How many more restaurants will follow suit following the reopening ?

At those prices, it's a 'Buakhao Bonanza'
