Unfortunately there were no table at the balcony, so we had to sit inside. They were fans but the air was still very sticky. After we ordered our meals we noticed, that bugs and ants were running around everywhere. On the table, on the plates and even on my arms and legs. Only because we were very hungry we stayed...

We posted up here because we wanted to have some dinner but after looking at the menu it all seemed a little too much. Too many choices, which sounds like a 'white guy problem' but honestly nothing jumped out at me, so we mutually decided to eat somewhere else.
