Nang Rong has seen an explosion of restaurants and food outlets over the last few years. So many new places have opened that it’s hard to keep count but we’re trying our best to taste everything!!
Let’s start with the good.
White Cottage is a cafe style restaurant on the main road through Nang Rong. If heading towards Bangkok it’s just after Siam Commercial Bank, in the same side. It’s beautifully decorated and has a selection of coffee, shakes and some rather fabulous cheesecake. It’s reasonably priced and is a lovely place to sit and chat.
Farm Mania is aimed at a similar client base to White Cottage. It’s located within the PTT Station on the road to Pakham, about 5 minutes out of Nang Rong. They offer a good selection of cakes and drinks with birthday cakes of various sizes available.
ICE 33 is on the northern side of town, close to the main Police Station and the
Agricultural College. They offer a selection of food including some rather good pizzas and some delicious desserts. Service is good and it’s become a favorite with many local people.
In a previous post about fitness, we mentioned the new gym at SoFit. This also has a very good restaurant which offers mostly Thai food, at a reasonable price. It’s comfortable and friendly and a good place to chat with friends whilst eating.
On the other side of the coins are two restaurants which are struggling. I’m going to lump them together as, for the same reasons, I think they won’t be around too long.
Love (previously On The Way) and Overtime both have superb locations but are failing to attract customers. Both have tried promotions with beer, sexy girls and music. In my opinion, what they lack is edible food. I’ve eaten and both and, to be honest, I think they need to change their chefs. It’s a shame as I hope they succeed but, as a restaurant, your first priority should be the food!!
