I am a big fan of Thai food. Enough said.
Yeah, when I was a little kid, my mom used to cook Tom Yum Goong soup a lot, since she’s a big fan of Thai food herself. Well, I can say that she’s the one who introduce me to the Thai Food world. In 2011, I had a pleasure to spend my summer in Pattaya Thailand, tasting a variety amount of Thai Food. Believe me, there are so many food stalls serve up cheap and savory foods in Thailand. Yes. Cheap! But here in Indonesia, it’s kinda hard to find a restaurant which serve great Thai food with affordable price. I once went to a restaurant in Jakarta but it was over priced. And the food not even worth the price.
Luckily, I was invited to had a nice dinner at Warung Bho Bho Thai, Kuta, Bali last Saturday.
I never heard about this place before, but later I found out that Warung Bho Bho Thai (in chinese : Grandma Thai) is a newly opened Thai restaurant which offers great variety of Thai foods with afforable price. Some of their recipe is even collected from generation to generation. They charge around Rp 9,000 – Rp 25,000 for each meal. I loveeeee this place so much and I think I’ll come back for more before I go back to Bandung.
The owners, Ko Chris and Ci Merry, are so kind! Ci Merry was so busy cooking and serving foods to their customer, but we do had the pleasure to chat with Ko Chris that night. I also found out that before deciding to open a Thai restaurant in Kuta, Ci Merry has been working in a Thai restaurant for years. And she also did a 2 months food-thai-research in Bangkok, Thailand. So, she’s got a lot of experience about cooking Thai food.
Anyway, they also decorated the wall so it looks catchy.
What’s even more interesting about Warung Bho Bho Thai is that they don’t use pork at all in any of their foods. And no MSG added too! So it’s Halal and healthy and safe for you guys who happens not to eat pork.
The kitchen sits just in front of the restaurant, so from where we sit, we can smell the lovely food is being cooked. I was drooling.
Anyway, about the food…
We had Tom Yum Goong soup, Pineapple Fried Rice (Nasi Goreng Nanas), Pad Thai (a must!), and Thai Milk Tea.
My favorite goes to their Pad Thai. It was surprisingly good! It got a good combination of classic Thai flavor : a lil bit sour, sweet, and spicy. I don’t know. It’s kinda hard to describe it. You gotta taste em yourself.
Fred’s favorite was Pineapple Fried Rice. If you like fried rice, you won’t be disappointed with this one. Even Fred who happens not to like fried rice love this one! Every bite of Pineapple Fried Rice is different. Sometimes you get a sweet-savory combination of pineapple and the paprika, and at the other time you taste the spicy flavor of the rice. Surprise, surprise!
For the soup, we decided to go for the Tom Yum Goong. It tasted a lil bit less sour than it should be that time, but you can ask for more lime and the owner would be happy to give you as much as you need. Just ask for it.
Anyway, their thai milk tea is also so refreshing!
Overall, we do love this place. Good Food. Good Place. Good Service. And the most important thing, good price! Everyone seemed to be very happy.
Thank you for inviting us, Ko Chris and Ci Merry! We will definitely come back for more. 🙂

Psst. You can check out their menu here!
Thank you very much for liking my post 🙂 And also, Thailand is pretty much ‘Foodland’ although food prices have gone up a bit over the few years. Over there, one will find milk tea on nearly every street, it can drive one to a pretty substantial weight gain over a short period…The pineapple fried rice looks delicious!
You are so welcome! Really? I didn’t know about that increasing food price before. Haha that weight gain part is so true.
Yes! And it tastes delicious as well 😀
Yeah, I don’t know if that’s the same in Indonesia.
The restaurant menu looked quite ‘commercial Thai’. There are a lot more exotic dishes to try in Thailand. Have you done a travel log for Thailand? I’d love to read it.
Ah good place for us who want to have a healthy and safe meals (not eat pork).
Halalan Toyyiban, hihi 😉 😉
Hahaha yeah 😀 Anyway what does Halalan Toyyiban means? hihi
It’s “Allowed and good to eat”; the later refers more to food properness (cleanliness, freshness, etc.), while the first to the law 🙂
Wow. I never knew about that words before. Thanks! 😀
Ah I was too late to comment back.
