Soi 14 house of oral relief Som’s Haven will be changing its name and location next month, but still will be close enough to cap off a Soi Cowboy visit.
A Budget Bobby favourite, Som’s is changing its name to Duangporn’s Haven, which doesn’t exactly trip off the tongue, but probably reflects the fact Som either sold up or settled down after finding a big German sausage.
As for where Som’s, er, Duangporn’s is moving, it’s around the corner on Asoke Montri Road near the Citypoint Hotel complex. Exit the Asok BTS at Exit 4 or the MRT Sukhumvit Station at Exit 3 and you’ll soon find yourself at the home of Budget Bobby’s famous 800-baht B&B Combo.
Don’t go walking in and ask for the Combo, though. They’ll look you like the daft farrang you are. Bobby made a funny. That’s not actually its name. Oh, and the price has gone up to 900-baht.
Finally, why the move you may be asking? The staff couldn’t really talk with their mouths full, but such things usually happen due to leases being up, rents going up or bars being sold.
