"One of my favorite restaurants around the Old Town is a Thai-Chinese restaurant where they sell stewed goose. Not a lot of people know it, but it's in a really small alley between buildings. It's called Lao Tang. The best thing about the place is stewed goose, and you just eat it with rice and some pickled sauce."

"There's no name but we call it Talat Kao, which translates to ‘the old market,’ in Yaowarat Road. Every time I go, there's always something new. The market sells a lot of Thai and Chinese ingredients: there’s tea, seeds, sauces. For me, it's like Disneyland. It’s open every day, but they close early, like five o'clock."
