Cafe 69

Everything about this casual restaurant off the main road in Bophut reminds you you are in Thailand - from the name, to the kitschy disco decor that wouldn't work anywhere else except the land of the thousand smiles, to the owner/chef Vivian who is a man but appears to moonlight as a ladyboy based on a photo on the restaurant wall, but most of all - the fresh, delicious, authentic Thai food.

 Soft shell crab and papaya salad wrapped in rice paper
 Thai Pad, Cafe 69's take on pad thai with amazing battered prawns and tamarind sauce
 Green chicken curry with mango
The interior - what you see is basically the entire restaurant, a tiny but lovingly kept restaurant in Bophut
