Regular readers know I don’t do food and restaurant reviews as I prefer to leave that carry on to the freeloading foodies who have an orgasm over a bit of crispy lettuce.
I do on the other hand like to give a mention to places I’ve stopped off at for a feed and think they are worth sharing for those looking for somewhere new to try.
If you fancy a belly busting traditional Sunday Roast then pop into Chequers on Sukhumvit Soi 4, a short walk up the soi on the left hand side not too far past the Dynasty Hotel, and you won’t leave disappointed or skint.
I went for the roast pork that came in at only 320 baht with my mate Yorkie digging into the chicken option for the same price. If you can find a space after clearing your plate then try the blueberry pie and custard to be sure that the staff will need to roll you out the door.
Now a regular Sunday spot for Stickboy as I prefer my food being served up from the kitchen rather than buffet style.
When I shared these photos a couple of week back on social media the usual negative Norman’s of the world were out in force blabbing on you can get a Sunday Roast at XYZ for 150 baht… fill yer boots boys if you want to join the ranks of Budget Bobby.
For me the 320 baht price tag at Chequers is value for money and don’t be fooled into thinking there wasn’t much pork on the plate, there was plenty. If there wasn’t would I have been back on a Sunday afternoon more than once?

Is Air Fried Food Really Healthier?
Up to 90% less fat. That’s just one of the claims of air fryer manufacturers. We’ve bought so much into this idea of a healthier way of cooking, that the air fryer market is expected to reach US$1.2b by 2026.
But how much healthier is air frying, compared to deep frying, really? Talking Point host Sharda Harrison conducts her own tests in search of answers.
