    Cranky T. Great little resturant in Phonsavan.

    Just up the road from Bamboozle.

    N19 27.036 E103 13.098


    Impressive menu.

    Great coffee

    I had these two cakes…one was a Japanese chocolate cake. I was buzzing after eating it. So rich and tasty.

    Looks far to posh for Phonsavan, but then again this town is booming.

    Phonsavans air conditioned oasis.



    Certainly worth checking out, ..a great place to escape the heat after a days riding.

    Thoroughly recommend Cranky T..
    The owners Dad is the contractor for the road to Long Cheng.
    The Chinese have the contract from the other direction. I guess the ones getting shot up recently ?

    She employees mostly Hmong.. May come across as a bit of a hard case.
    But just trying to teach them what is right and wrong and how to work properly. .
    Genuinely cares for the staff.

    When there met Dad and the Mayor of Phonsavan. They had been playing Badminton.

    Selfie with the Mayor :)

    There’s two ripper little bakery’s located directly opposite Bamboozle.

    Great places to stock up on some riding tucker before taking off.

    There open early and close late.

    The Lao Farang has had a smart make over

    green is the go

    AND this is the top brekky spot in town, or at least in low season.
    The american breakfast

    The fruit & yoghurt brekky
    not to be missed when everything else is closed , But the food is good & the coffee tops I thought.

    On the corner between the Dok Khoune GH & the Bamboozle is the Phoxai

    located right on a corner at the entrance to the market soi it is a great place to hang out & watch all the locals go by.
    Plus get some tasty cheap fresh food

    Beer 'n chips Lao style

    fried veges & larb - minced chicked

    Beef steak
    & not quite how I was expecting the steak to be, but is was certainly tasty enough.
