Scruffy’s Sunday Roast Scores A 9/10

scruffys sunday roast

Having scoffed a few pints of Asahi in the afternoon come 7.30pm old Stick was starving and in need of a feed and a change of scenery.

Her indoors has never been to Scruffy Murphy’s before and that’s where we decided to go for some food as I fancied a Sunday roast and know they do decent Thai scran to keep her quiet.

No messing about when we arrived and I went for the Triple Taste at 340 baht that lets you choose from beef, pork, lamb and chicken. I skipped the lamb for no reason in particular.

Mrs Stick scanned the menu and went for extra spicy mixed seafood yum which turned out wasn’t on the menu at all but fair play to the service and chef for knocking up what she wanted.

Being the fat glut that I am, I couldn’t just order a Sunday roast and be content. No, no, no. It doesn’t work that way and I fancied some chips and curry sauce too.

There’s been a lot of talk on Twitter lately debating hand cut and frozen chips so when my plate arrived with homemade chips it was a nice surprise.

Was the food good?

Well, you know it was from the title so there’s no need for all that food writer fluff.

Scruffy’s Sunday roast was one of the best I’ve had in Bangkok scoring an impressive 9/10.

As for the Thai food, I just asked the other half to score her scran out of ten and she immediately gave it full marks. 10 out of 10. Why such a high score? Her words, “they made me exactly what I wanted, how I wanted it and I got mine before you”.

We washed everything down with a 5 bottle beer bucket of Leo that was on offer for just 400 baht. In fact, we were so full we only drank four of them but 2 sambuca’s sent over from Eoin the manager may have played a part in that.

Stick went to bed with a full belly and a mental note to return another Sunday for more of the same.

Note, this is not a sponsored post, Scruffy’s had no idea I was coming and as always I paid my bill. Yes, the manager, who is a friend of mine, sent over two shots on the house which I will be sure to reciprocate next time I meet him when he’s out on the town.

Black Canyon Introduce Robot Waitress Service

Black Canyon Introduce Robot Waitress Service

A Black Canyon coffee shop in Bangkok has introduced the ‘Pudubot’ – a robot waitress – to serve drinks to customers.

The device cuts costs and limits contact between staff and customers, which could prevent transmission of Covid-19.

It also improves efficiency and hygiene, according to Prawit Chitnarapong, who runs the chain of shops.

Footage shows how customers order at the counter before taking a seat at a table. Staff then load meals and drinks onto the shelves of the robot before keying in the table number.

The Pudobot is programmed to travel to each number table and has sensors to avoid bashing into customers.



Staff and customers have been so impressed with the robot waitress that managers now plan to use them to receive orders, accept payments, collect the orders and deliver them to the correct customers.

Chief Executive, Prawit, said the Pudubot could revolutionise the coffee shop industry by improving efficiency.

He said: ”In the future, there will be an increase in efficiency, with the robot able to take orders and also accept payments.

”Importantly, we don’t want the use of robots to replace the workforce, but to increase work efficiency, especially in the new age of life where we need to maintain social distancing when a large number of customers are entering the store.”

My Favourite Fish & Chips In Bangkok

Published

on

The Bangkok Fish & Chips Wars kicked off when Smiths on Sukhumvit Soi 13 and Busters further down at Soi 33/1 launched their new “chippy” menus a few months back and it has been a popular talking point ever since.

For years bars and pubs of all kinds in the capital have been knocking out this British favourite usually with a special at the end of the working week as was the tradition for decades in the UK to eat fish on a Friday.

Pub fish and chips are nothing like what you’d be served or expect in a traditional chip shop. Far from it.

Putting all on a level playing field with 1 very important must – the fish must be either haddock or cod – I have munched my way through dozens upon dozens of offerings all across the capital in the past few months.

Some fine, others have been meh, and many have been pretty damn good.

But one bar stands out from the crowd and ticks all the boxes for me.

For you, well, you might be looking for something different which is why I used “My Favourite Fish & Chips In Bangkok” and not “The Best Fish & Chips In Bangkok”.

My Favourite Fish & Chips In Bangkok

So where does one find Stickboy’s favourite Fish & Chips?

The Old English Pub in Thonglor.

Those guys do it just the way I like it. A classic pub style F&C.

I’m no food critic or photographer so two things you won’t be getting are food blogger fluff and a photo of a dish that has been doctored to death.

What no mushy peas? No this? No that?

As I pointed out already, we are all unique and like things to suit our own tastes.

But the chips are frozen and not hand-cut… exactly what I’d expect in a pub. If I was at a “chippy” I’d be mortified at being served frozen chips.

At 385 baht some will cry a fountain of tears but listen up, you get what you pay for and this is worth every last satang.

Note, this is not a sponsored post, the food and drinks consumed were not comped and as always I paid my own bill.
