Please check if they have heavy/double cream.

If so, I'll drive from BKK.

 

Thanks.

NO! Pushing your luck for that kind of luxury.

I don't know Tops and I went to one in Pattaya but was so long ago I can't recall what was in it.

 

Is Tops good for Western products at decent prices?

 

I must say I have been quite happy with cheeses,beans and meat products since I discovered the online services by expat foods of Pattaya, with speedy delivery.

 

I am in Khonkaen this coming week.

It's good for Western products at Western prices+. It's possibly the only place in Thailand to get Western quality, but you have to pay dearly for it.

Bangkok Barry, Thank you.

 

I might as well just stick to expat foods Pattaya who provide a good reasonable service then.

 

Their cheeses, pies and meats I found to be good value for Thailand although I found their curries too bland, coming from Northern England, I like fire in mine!.

I buy from someone who deals in expat food and a lot of his stock comes from Pattaya. Seems to be Expat Food Central. As for the curries, try adding a little (or more!) chilli powder. I do that in my mince and beef stews.

I have been cooking so much the last few months that I am looking forward to going to a kitchenware store..  I saw a commercial from usa for a teflon style orange frying pan that doesnt chip or scratch and I got excited.. 

 

what is an air fryer? I am frenzied at the thought!!

Not the only place in Thailand - Villa Market & Foodland in Bangkok are also good, but not cheap.

If you thought the Khon Kaen one was huge , try the one in Central Plazza Udon Thani ?

Even bigger than Tops Khon Kaen???

I've been to the ones in Khon Kaen and Udon, but prefer the one in Central Plaza Korat, which is a "Tops Superstore", as opposed to a regular "Tops Market", like the first two.  However, for Western food, I find the supermarket in The Mall Korat to be better.

I'm going for my second shot also.

 

My wife and I stopped by the Topps also

  It was packed!  Always nice selection and great quality.

 

I'm travel 5 hours from upper SaKon Nakhon.  My wife and I are staying at the Avani Khon Kaen.  Very nice.

 

The first vaccine went great,I hope its that smooth again.  I haven't had a confirmation yet.

 

Any update let us know.

Khon Kaen Pfeizer shots October 2nd.

Who did you pre-register with?

Directly with the hospital.

 

I was frustrated with the Intervac.  After being excepted I was never contacted again.  No email, no SMS, nothing.

 

I got some good advice through this forum and called Khon Kaen Bangkok Hospital.

 

The Khon Kaen hospital manually put me in.

 

Very happy about that.

 

On another positive note:

 

Udon Thani Bangkok Hospital confirmed there receiving the Moderna mid October.

 

So hopefully take a little vacation soon with the family.  End of November.

I registered through ThailandIntervac.com and the 2nd jabs are done by Bangkok Hospital on Oct. 3 at Central in Khon Kaen.

The one in Samui has been extended it’s so big you get lost in it I go there just to buy the mini pork pies .I think Topps is either Sainsburys or Waitrose in the U.K. and it’s not expensive either

I'm going to Khon Kaen from Ban Dung tomorrow 28/9 to get my first Pfizer vaccine at the Health Promotion Center at Bangkok Hospital.

 

I registered thru the https://it-nurse.bkn.co.th/index_vaccine.php website.

 

I will have to check out Tops.  The wife and I are staying overnight at the Avani.

I also live on Samui and TOPS is great for buying UK/Western Brands and fresh produce, but their Great Quality comes at Premium Prices!

 

They stock a lot of Waitrose stuff!

 

But, expect to pay much higher prices than Tesco or Makro!.....

 

Tops market ท็อปส์ มาร์เก็ต - Central Food Retail Company LTD

 

To get an idea have a look at their website..... Tops online is Thailand’s Number 1 online grocery shopping

 

 

There are no Villa Market or Foodland stores on Samui!
