Western Breakfast / Mad Dog
After writing last week about what a perfect place The Upper Crust would be for breakfast, with all the Western food, coffees and cakes and newspapers and all, I went there for breakfast last Sunday. But... found out they only open at 12 pm noon! Really! So had to pick something else to spend an hour with some fried eggs on toast, some coffee and the newspaper. So I picked Mad Dog bar. It's perhaps more a retired-expat hangout bar than anything else, but they do serve fairly inexpensive food as well, the usual collection of American/British breakfasts, burgers and sandwiches and so on. They do pizza as well. I think the breakfasts especially make a lot of sense, and you do get a lot of food for your 70 or 80 baht. You get your toast, butter, jam, eggs with ham or bacon, orange juice, coffee for 70 baht, or go for the British breakfast for 80 baht which includes some fried potatoes as well. One step up there's even a 'super breakfast' but I shudder to think how big that will turn out. :) There's also burgers and sandwiches that go for around 40-60 baht, and some main courses that I’ve never tried. One interesting thing to note is the almost complete absence of anything 'vegetable' on the menu, and very few things that would qualify as really 'healthy food' in anyone's book.. :-) I did notice that muesli with yogurt & fruit had been added to the menu, so that's at least something. (And it was rather nice too, with fresh mango thrown in, not just the regular banana-papaya-water melon mix.)

It's a low key bar environment, friendly staff, newspapers available, draft beer, etc. Good unpretentious place for a beer or a bite to eat that's Western expat/tourist oriented without going the girlie-bar route, which is a common theme for bars in the Thapae area.

Mad Dog is on Moon Muang road, South of Thapae Gate on the city moat, pretty much across from D.K. Book Center.
