KOH SAMUI - Amazing Ramen
Awesome restaurant in Koh Samui, Thailand where the food is carefully prepared and attention to detail is high. The atmosphere is clean, comfortable, and friendly. Both the Ramen and Fried Chicken are delicious!
So we’re here at “Shima Ramen” it’s a super rainy day and I’m going to start with a teenee tip for you, if it’s pouring rain and you want your food delivered there are a couple of apps to look into one’s called grab food and another one’s called food panda there’s a couple of panda guys outside right now and they’ll go through the heaviest terrain on their little motorbikes to bring you your food to your villa or wherever you might be staying. We came out we braved the rain and we came in because we wanted to show you this little ramen shop. I love finding little ramen shops wherever we go so there will be a lot of ramen in teenee for you so that you can satisfy that urge when you feel it like I often do. What I have in front of me here is the gyoza so we got a nice little port gyoza let’s start with this and see how it is.
Yeah! that’s a nice juice juicy gyoza, she’s been in the back whipping up it’s kind of like a one-man band in here and she was whipping up all of this stuff fresh. They got the the noodle makings we got some nice cashew pork in here, there is an egg in there somewhere…there it is, one of those nice you know those nice soft ramen eggs so this is a shoyo pork just a classic ramen let’s put a piece of char shoe on there.
Oh a rich broth, I got the spicy ramen and I’m here with Adam. He got the regular one this one has a bit of kick to it, I usually order the spicy ramen wherever I go but this is just a little rainy day stock to warm us up, I wouldn’t say it’s chilly out there but it’s uh it’s not a typical blistering hot day so ramen is really gonna hit the spot here so if you’re ever around these parts come into “Shima Ramen” it’s just on the ring road outside Bo Put and enjoy a nice hot bowl of ramen.
Bangkok, Thailand has some of the most epic shopping anywhere on earth. Many of these massive mall complexes would put their counterparts in Europe or North America to shame. The Holy Grail of Bangkok shopping is IconSiam. This is a newly built architectural masterpiece located right on the east side of the Chao Praya river across from central Bangkok. It has anything and everything that you could think of. Whether you’re looking to purchase something from a luxury brand like Gucci, Chanel, Fendi, Rolex, etc. or simply want a basic Tee from Uniqlo, this place has it all. You can even buy a Ferrari right in the mall if you’re looking to spend some serious coin. There’s also an epic food court on the ground level of IconSiam which features all sorts of tasty Thai treats that you can get at street food prices. One thing that’s actually quite common across many Bangkok shopping centres is to have at least one or two food courts that act more like Thai markets than they do a typical eating area. The food in these areas are both tasty and cheap. The reason that these exist is because the developers or owners of these massive shopping complexes want to drive as much foot traffic as possible inside of their real estate. So, they give significant rent breaks to the vendors that would normally have to compete for space in an outdoor market. What ends up happening is that residents find a specific vendor or restaurant that they like, and make it a weekly routine to go and enjoy some food from that specific location, inside of whatever mall it exists in. The food courts inside of these malls actually become attractions on their own, resulting in more foot traffic inside of the mall.
