I've been on a self-imposed exile from Thailand for the last seven years. After reading about the completely heartless way the Thai government chose to treat the Rohingya refugees (and I thought Thailand was a nation of devout Buddhists?) back in 2008-9, I decided that I would no longer support Thailand by giving them my tourist money. I stopped coming, and treated the country like a deadzone when I planned trips. After all, there is so much to see in the world!
But an invitation to attend the awards for Asia's 50 Best Restaurants, which was held in Bangkok for the first time this year instead of Singapore, was to be the one invitation that I couldn't turn down. Especially since I had turned down an invitation to attend last year's event as I was working to launch a new fund.
I got into the city during lunch time, and dropped off my bags at the Pullman Bangkok Hotel G since my room wasn't ready. The staff had suggested that I take lunch at the on-premise burger joint, but there was just no way that would work for me. I's gonna have me somethin' local!
I pinged Chubby Hubby about meeting up later, and he suggested that I go grab lunch at Supanniga Eating Room since it's close by. Apparently a couple of chefs from Singapore were having lunch there. I'd seen pictures posted by the Great One of her meal there a couple of days ago, so I figured it wouldn't hurt...
