    Cranky T. Great little resturant in Phonsavan.

    Just up the road from Bamboozle.

    N19 27.036 E103 13.098

    Cranky.T%20LAOS%201.

    Impressive menu.
    Cranky.T%20LAOS%202.

    Great coffee
    Cranky.T%20LAOS%203.

    I had these two cakes…one was a Japanese chocolate cake. I was buzzing after eating it. So rich and tasty.
    Cranky.T%20LAOS%204.

    Looks far to posh for Phonsavan, but then again this town is booming.
    Cranky.T%20LAOS%205.

    Phonsavans air conditioned oasis.
    Cranky.T%20LAOS%206.

    Cranky.T%20LAOS%207.

    Cranky.T%20LAOS%208.

    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.
