At the very beginning of Klong Nin Beach, just opposite the place where the river mouth is, there is a large building made of logs and planks, under a roof of old dry palm leaves. Neither the newfangled design of glass and concrete, nor the isolated air-conditioned aquariums, nor the upholstered furniture - all these excesses Bobby Bigboy's owner ignored. In the afternoon and in the evening, here you are greeted by a wooden frame on a platform made of wooden planks, simple sturdy furniture (tables and benches) and a figurine of a big boy, which actually belongs to the American fast food company Bob’s Big Boy Restaurants, but it seems the owner is not embarrassed.

Bobby Big Boy Cafe
The owner of Bobby Big Boy is a Thai man who has lived in the States for a long time. He speaks very good English, is friendly and outgoing. He invested a minimum in the construction of the restaurant, I don't know for what reasons, but the result was an excellent island restaurant, which can often be found in photographs of tourists in Thailand in the 70s and 80s. Real old school, old school. The interior is very simple, all in wood and bamboo style. There are equipment in the restaurant: a refrigerator with drinks and ice cream, two large TVs on which football was spinning at the time of my arrival, fans and lamps. Everything else - wood, nails, decorative flowers and food.
Despite having the mascot for the company that made a fortune from hamburgers, Big Boy only offers Thai food. Contrary to popular belief that the price here is up by 50-70%, in my opinion, the prices here are average. You just need to look at the plate carefully and see that the portions are large.
We were sitting in a restaurant with a friend, so he ordered Pad Thai, and I ordered PineApple Fried rice for 180 baht, and both ate more than. Tasty from the word «delightfully», special thanks to the owner of the restaurant. I believe that when a person travels to Thailand for a Thai flavor, such Big Boys are just a gift. Cozy simple atmosphere, funny Americanism, as an expression of the owner's nostalgia for the States, huge space and excellent work of the chef.
