    ‘Bunny girls’ coffee shop in Chiang Mai becomes talk of the town
    March 27, 2017 12:15
    By The Nation





    A newly opened coffee shop featuring waitresses in “bunny girl uniform” has become a hot topic among online social networkers, especially those in the North.

    But the bunny girl uniform does not resemble that of Play Boy girls. Instead, the waitresses simply wear tight a long-sleeved white shirt with a short black skirt and pink bunny ears over their head.

    Many patrons have posted selfie shots with the bunny waitresses on their Facebook walls, which has brought more curious customers to the shop.

    The shop is located on a soi beside Nong Hoi Market off Jai Kaew Road in Tambon Nong Hoi in Chiang Mai’s Muang district.

    The shop owner, Kanchana Boonprasert, 30, said the shop is open from 9.30am to 8pm. She said the shop serves coffee and other drinks.

    She decided to have the shop feature waitresses in cosplay costumes because she believes it is unprecedented.

    She denied the shop also sell drinks to the waitresses as in cocktail lounges.

    She said her waitresses are university students who do it as a part-time job. At the moment, there are 10 of them at a time and each girl must have her own strategy to entice patrons to return to the shop, Kanchana added.

    Replayed my regular haunt Hua Hin. Everybody goes to the popular weekend Cicada night market (good for handicrafts), but just next door is the Tamarind market (food)

    Navigating the Bang Phlat intersection was tricky even before mass-transit construction began.
    New lane markers are supposed to help. Some drivers aren't so sure.

    When you go to Pattaya I highly recommend this Italian restaurant - Trattoria Pizzeria Toscana right at the Beach Road

    In Pattaya forget about eating Thai food cos there are many angmoh there so angmoh food there is very good, eat Thai food elsewhere.





    Selected the Camelot, a 2011 blended Sicilian of Cabernet and Merlot, a splendid wine indeed for the evening




    Dolcelatte, Italian version of blue cheese, excellent with the strong wine


    Probably the best cold cut I've had




    Parmigiano-Reggiano or parmesan cheese goes well with the salty cold cuts


    Rocket


    Getting next bottle ready for the mains


    Great wine




    Guinea fowl, reared in the restaurant's farm, my first time eating this bird, its got a wild taste to the meat, almost no fat other than the skin, meat if tougher than chicken but more flavor almost like duck, have to say I enjoy although at first a little hesitant



    Lamb chop - charred a little on the outside but done medium juicy on the inside, great chef

    When in Pattaya and if you really want to have Thai seafood, don't go to the Walking Street. If possible drive 9km north of Pattaya to Sattahip for one of the best seafood in Thailand



    Topyam groupa


    Cabbage


    Green gourd vine


    Seabass


    Each of these is half kilogram, mantis prawn, only found in Preecha


    Same giant mantis prawn fried with garlic


    Sea snails roasted


    Check out how fresh ands big they are
