'Beat Cafe' - super simple - lovely people
Posted on 04 / 20 / 2011
Delightfully friendly family run Buddhist open fronted cafe - very simple - very basic.
A breakfast / lunch place - after 15.00 the food selection is very limited.
Old hippies, seasoned backpackers, beatniks will feel quite at home here - I adore Hong Ming & have been visiting for too many years.
You get a plate of several different tasty veggie preparations, mock meats, local red rice or noodles etc. - usually for much less than US$ 1.50.
Point & point again - very little English spoken - I have never looked at a menu.
Be ready to share tables with the locals if the place is busy.
Some groceries also sold.
Beware - the drinks are quite sweet
The red hibiscus flower drink tastes superb.
Hong Ming is the only veggy restaurant in Krabi to date.
Directions - between Maharaja Soi's 6 & 10 - one street back from the river - directly behind the extremely seedy Rongram (Hotel) Vieng Tong which is at 155 Uttarakit Rd., Krabi Town.
Note - this is not, not, not a place for anyone wanting piping hot fancy food & perfect sparkly hygeine - I call it a '5' because I adore such places & I am perhaps slightly eccentric.
