Not a shopping deal,as such,but Sizzler in Central Plaza have currently reduced their Salad Bar from 199 baht to 139 baht.....excellent value....eat as much as you want. \:D/
If they have reduced their salad bar, does that mean they are now catering for their shorter customers :-k

The quality has been declining for a long time not a patch on what it used to be, also all the other prices should come down as they include the very poor salad bar, no little bits of meat for ages, pork, chicken and bacon was always included now nothing, last week not even potatoe salad, very poor.

Bad news for trout lovers I'm afraid. Speaking to the manager of the Royal project shop today. Apparently the current breeding pond is exhausted and being drained and the next one the fish aren't expected to be ready for the market for at least another 3 months . :cry:

Bad news indeed tb. Maybe in about 3 more months, the Royal Project shop will also have a desk for their staff to do their paperwork on rather than using the top of the mini-freezer that the frozen goodies are in.

I will be in Pattaya next week and will see if Siamburi's has any.

NOT a "Shopping Deal" as such BUT the UKs best selling cereal is now available at Tops in Udon!

They are now selling Weetabix (NOT Aussie Weet-bix) at 149THB for a 24 biscuit pack.

To me, that is reasonable, given Thai import duties.

One thing though, the packaging doesn't say Weetabix (please see photo below) - it says "Whole Wheat Biscuits" (I suspect this is down to trading agreements and is packaged in Malaysia) but has the "Product of the UK" symbol clearly shown and the manufacturer is clearly shown (in small print, on the side of the box).

I'm a very happy bunny - I'm not keen on the Aussie version, even though it was the original (the recipe was changed for the UK).

The British Weetabix has been av in Thailand many years at least 5 or 6 but always arrives here in small quantities and didnt get distributed nationwide only in Bkk and Pattaya etc , we used to stock/sell it in our Chern Chim days , it was originally imported by a Nigerian guy in Bkk hes long gone and now i believe a Brit fella based in Chonburi holds the import license for it.

But one get one free tins of rhubarb at TIT (130 baht) get a free pie if you spend 500 baht (usually 100 baht), good deals that are worth a mention.

You're correct.

Even Central Plaza designates that floor with a 'G'. I'd have to guess that is for "Ground", not basement.

I fear that you are destined for disappointment Val.
They are Cape Gooseberries..

I have found that they make a decent tart crumble when mixed 50/50 with apples but otherwise have only used them raw..

Yes sorry to say you are right Bob, bang goes my idea for a nice tarty crumble this weekend , never mind the peaches and plums look delicious to eat just as they are . For the non Brits this is what we call a gooseberry, member of the Ribes family , including black currants etc. The cape gooseberry is from the physalis genre, a totally different family .

Good day. Sorry about the confusion Gooseberries VS Cape gooseberries. Of course i was aware of the difference, but i assumed, never had seen GOOSEBERRIES in Udon, that all would understand that i was referring to Cape Gooseberries.
I should not had taken it for granted. Once again accept my apologies.
