Eat and meet

Soppong

There’s not much of a choice in Soppong food-wise, so apart from some simple noodle and rice shops near the market you’ll be relying mostly on guesthouse meals. Luckily though, both Little Eden and Soppong River Inn’s Seven Elephants Restaurant produce fine Thai food at sensible rates, as well as offering some Western options. Little Eden, courtesy of its former German owner, does quite good pizzas. Slightly out of town the The Rock Resort @ Pang Mapha has a very good Thai restaurant. For lunch, apart from the noodle shops and a curry cafe by the market, you’ll find a couple of small but good local cafes down the old Soppong Village high street. Note most of the latter close early in the evenings so don’t leave it too late or you may find only a grilled chicken stall or a 7-eleven toasted sandwich.

Eden, River Inn, Lemon Hill and Ban Cafe Nature Resort all have good real coffee shops though during low season they may not all be open -- or open and staffed. Right at the corner of the road up to Nong Thong village is another fine cafe specialising in local coffee and ice creams.

Soppong River Lodge and Little Eden both have nice sitting areas overlooking the river, so they make great choices for an early evening beer. There may well be more eating options during high season as even the quieter of the village’s guesthouses open up kitchens and get some staff in, so the above may by no means be comprehensive.
