A Travellerspoint blog

These are a few of my favorite things...

...in Mui Ne as of 2 Nov 2008

sunny 29 °C
View Southeast Asia on kmpossible's travel map.

Our guest house, Nam Khai, is very clean and the staff is friendly. The front desk guy, Kahn, is really sweet. We've borrowed glasses (for local RUM! and coke) and spoons (for cereal and yogurt), and had our laundry done (for about $2) - they've been incredibly accommodating. My advise though is to do your laundry yourself...the detergent smells like dirty feet! Other than that, our experience has been top shelf.

SNOW - located 3 doors down from the hotel. Wifi with purchase - fantastic Long Cosmopolitan and beer, but the food was disappointing for the money. Sushi was OK, but not what I would expect for spending that kind of dime. They have black lights in the inner lounge, which will be fantastic this weekend with our practice poi.

WAX Bar and Restaurant. If you're hungry, the club sandwich fills a hole. The fries are out of a bag, but ok as well. Shrimp tempora is a great drunk food! (or hangover food) Good atmosphere and sometimes good music...check out the fire dancers on Saturday night...I may be joining them this Saturday! =)

Mellow Guest House and Restaurant. Breakfast breakfast breakfast! Scrambled eggs are great, as is the muesli with yogurt and fruit. Omelets are good, too. Today we had lunch there (it was our breakfast, as it was 11:30am and we had JUST woken up!). I had a club sandwich and Mike had a burger. Burger was average and club was good - chips were hand made and quite good. Ask for mayonnaise if you like it like that.

New restaurant across from Nam Khai with really outgoing front-girl. Seriously, if you walk by in the evening, she'll be there to lasso you and to outline the entire menu. If you can get past feeling overwhelmed, stay for the fresh catch BBQ fish, squid and shrimp. Just go to the front counter that says "Fresh BBQ" and point out what you want. It comes with garlic rice, and one small fish with 6 shrimp was plenty for Mike and I for dinner. They bring fruit as a desert included with the meal. Very good food, incredibly friendly service.

Liquor store 2 doors down from Nam Khai, same side of the street. A lovely woman works there, and she usually gives you a free water or something to go along with your purchase - we've been enjoying the RUM! She may base this free item on your total purchase, so don't take my word as gospel. But if you're in there, might as well get a couple bottles, as they're the cheapest we've seen along the beach strip. 2 doors north of Nam Khai on the same side of the street.

We have about 3 more weeks here, so watch this space for additions!

Sending love and peace,
Kim
