The Five Star Vagabond

Super travel tips, all road tested by David Herd. I'm an Australian guy who moved to Thailand in 2011 & still travel the world as often as possible.


Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy

Typical Bangkok street kitchen

Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy over a 4 day period in July 2017. There are so many terrific places to eat in Bangkok, from 5 star hotels to street food & everything in between. The 3 of us guys were wondering if any Thai people actually eat a home. 🙂

Au Bon Pain for breakfast

Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy We start our day at Au Bon Pain in Silom or one of the many Starbucks in and around Silom Rd near Sala Daeng BTS station. The coffee & croissants are excellent, my favorite is the ham & cheese at Starbucks.

Here it is

 A perfect start to the day, add a tall latte for a cost of B230 or $7 usd.

However if you are on a budget

Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy Foodland (open 24/7) has a breakfast “happy hour”, if you eat before an American breakfast including coffee & juice will only cost you B62 or $1.80 usd, priceless. 🙂

Le Bouchen in Patpong

Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy

TripAdvisor rates Le Bouchen #176 of 9,969 restaurants in Bangkok. I think this is a gross exaggeration, don’t get me wrong, the couple of entrees we had were very good, however it’s an old world French restaurant that doesn’t deserve such a high rating. Dishes were Lasagna with lobster sauce & a Lobster bisque in pastry which was quite excellent.

 These were excellent

Uminoya Izakaya

Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy 

I really enjoyed the food & wine at Uminoya.

Two excellent dishes

Funny story of the day, the skewers were around B250 & the eel B180, or so I thought until the bill came. It was B2100 or $84 aud including 2 large glasses of red, I had made a small error, the eel was B1189 ++, when I ordered it I thought it seemed too cheap. 🙂 🙂 🙂

 China White 3rd floor Central World

Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy Really good low cost Chinese food.

I will definitely visit China White again.

Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy They served the best BBQ pork I have had for a long time.

Roast at The Commons

Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy 

My brother Warren & I both agree the lunch “special” at “Roast” on the top floor is the best value we have ever had in Thailand, & in most other countries as well. There is a choice on entree, main course & desert for only B340 or $10 usd.

The busy kitchen at “Roast”.

We were both so impressed not just with the food, but the presentation, service & cleanliness of this reasonably hard to find top floor restaurant.

 Fresh vegetables in Patpong

Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy Thai people has taken street to an art form. Follow THIS LINK for more Thai street food.

Capri pizzas at Asiatique

Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy This is definitely one of my favorite photos.

 Chicken skewers look good here.

Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy The Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy continues, there is temptation around every corner.

The Wine Connection

Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy There are about 6 branches in Bangkok, this one is in Silom. Choose your wine from their well stocked cellar.

My favorite dish at Wine Connection

Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy

 Garlic prawns cooked exactly like I used to have them in Australia 40 years ago. 🙂

Ice cream shop at Central World

Three Aussies Bangkok Feeding Frenzy We used our willpower & resisted the temptation until we got to Swensen’s at Siam Paragon. 🙂 Can you believe TripAdvisor rate Swensen’s  #166 of 10,489 Places to Eat in Bangkok.

My history, particularly over the last 30 years is dominated by overseas travel. I sold my home in Australia October 20th 2011 and have have been living in Thailand since then. I don’t know where the time has gone? It seems like you go to sleep one night, wake up the next morning, and 20 years have flashed by. Not sure how many years I have left, however I have enjoyed a wonderful charmed life, and if it all ended today I would leave this world with no regrets. I was born in Sydney halfway through the last century, started my travels in the 60s with the usual U.K. Europe adventure at the age of 20, back to Australia and worked in Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide in Sales & Marketing with multinational companies including Sanyo, Canon & Remington. Engaged to be married 3 times and never quite made it to the alter, finally realized by the mid 90s I was not cut out for "long term relationships" so I moved to the Gold Coast in Queensland in January 1987, worked for a couple of banks as a Financial Planner, I took a year off work in 1998 to travel and never went back to full time work again, after 25 fun filled years on the Coast I packed up and moved to Thailand. What is the purpose of this blog? Well I really want to use it to record my travel experiences & to display my photographs, give and receive travel tips, comment on places I visit, restaurants I eat in and use it to replace the autobiography I intended to write, apart from all that it helps me fill in my day. :) I moved to Thailand mainly because I wanted to keep travelling while my health allowed me to, there are huge advantages being closer to all the places I want to visit. Cost of living in Thailand is around 35% of the cost in Australia, plus flights are 50% cheaper because you are much closer to everywhere. ???? Consequently I am able to travel to many more places compared to living in Australia. Having said all that, it is & has always been my intention to return to Australia when my travelling is finished, I predict this will happen around 2021.
