Have you ever noticed how many of our moments of pure bliss come when they are least expected?
I thought I knew the neighbourhood where my husband and I are staying in Chiang Mai since I did stay here last year, so now wouldn’t I be able to lay claim to knowing all about the neat places to eat and shop? Well, I was mistaken because I happened on a secluded little cafe/restaurant tucked away behind some shrubbery just around the corner from us. After a quick peek inside and perusal of the menu, I noted this place as a ‘must eat’ one so next day dragged G down to try it out. As we sat there in the midst of the trees, flowers, and just a few like-minded diners, we thoroughly enjoyed our first lunch here. We agreed that we had found a little Garden of Eden. For me, it was a blissful moment in time reminding me that such places can still be found in the world and right here at our doorstep in Chiang Mai which is rapidly becoming a fast-growing city with too much traffic and smog. In addition, we found the food to be fresh and tasty, as well as reasonably priced. The service was prompt and courteous, and there were even up to date glossy magazines to look at. Unfortunately, we couldn’t read them because for some strange reason every magazine in Thailand has only the titles in English. All the content is in Thai. However, we saw excellent photographs of what the Royal Family, Kate and William, and some of the top contenders for this year’s Oscar awards are up to. As an extra bonus, this little place is now becoming my inspiration and haven for tackling my blog writing and reading.
