Anyone like Korean food?
« on: May 22, 2016, 09:06:55 PM »
I love Korean food, and although there are a couple of Korean restaurants in Korat, they're still somewhat limited in menu selections.  Anne Yeong is one of my favorites.

One thing you can pick up in Thailand, and that's learning how to cook the food you can't find, but love to eat. Most ingredients can be found at The Mall market and Makro.  Here's my version of Bi-Bim-Bop.  I threw a little bit of Japanese into it. 

Second dish is Blackened seared Ahi (Yellow fin tuna), with a Japanese Sesame dressing.

Here's some scrambled eggs I whipped up and a grilled Chicken breast salad.  Yes, there is a chicken breast under all the veggies and dressing. Ok, so this isn't Korean, but I thought I'd throw it in there anyway.

Wow.  The presentation looks fantastic.  I bet the taste was great. You've gone to great lengths to photo the results.

Thanks, Aussie.  My wife wants me to open a restaurant, but I really don't want to go down that road.

Baby Farts - If you like cooking and really need the money then maybe for you it might  be a good thing to open a restaurant.  Unfortunately, history has shown us in Thailand that most Farang/Thai businesses that open are closed or bankrupt within the first year.  There is an old adage referring to restaurants, "That you get rich by feeding the poor and get poor by feeding the rich". Opening a restaurant in Thailand is equivalent to burning your money in a trash can.

Certainly don't need the money.  It would be more of a hobby if anything.  I totally agree with what you've said. Luckily I have almost 2 rai which I'm building the shops and condos on.  I could just keep one of the units for myself heh heh.  I dunno... Location is everything, but land is so darn expensive now.

I'm surprised at the number of restaurants that have gone up on the road to Suranaree University and Sarasas school.  It's all Por Bor Tor 5 land which means you cannot do anything it except use it for farming and/or agricultural purposes only. Por Bor Tor 5 only shows you have a tax number, but no official rights at all.
It was formerly used to establish that the holder was occupying a plot of land and could apply for a Sor Kor 1 and later for a land title deed. Here's the catcher.  Ago you could upgrade to Sor Kor Nung, but a Sor. Kor. 1 has never been issued since 1972!....it can only be done through the courts and the last day to apply for an upgrade without going to court was back in February of 2010. 

This is scary stuff, because the government / military could easily do a sweep of that area.  I only know of ONE are that has Chanotes and that's the housing development there.  There may be more.  This is where "money under the table" comes in, but it would make NO difference to the military.  Lately that's exactly what they've been doing....these land sweeps where they take the land and everything on it.  Ouch. 

The reason I bring this up is because I almost bought a coffee shop and land a few years ago out there until I found out the truth about the land in that area and how it can only be used for farming and agricultural purposes. Glad didn't!  I would've become poor very quick!  I guess some folks are willing to take the risks though. sigh..
