The original plan was to revisit Barque Smokehouse with a few friends but with no reservations, the wait was at least an hour.

There was a lot of hype surrounding Khao San Road when it first opened due to the success of Sukhothai. I decided to try it out for dinner with a couple of friends. As usual with a lot of the smaller popular restaurants, they did not take reservations so expect a lengthy wait if you’re [...]
