We decided to treat ourselves to a meal out last night to celebrate the boat festival, first we went to Khop Chai Deu but they were celebrating the Oktoberfest and halloween so we decided to have a walk down the Mekong - sure it was heavin' but we stumbled on this little place called "The Spirit House" I am not sure how they arrived at the name tho, after a quick scan of the menu I noticed a very long list of spirits available so decided that was the reason for the name but then was told that it is the house of "good spirits" so I am back to square one! and I am still non the wiser really. When we arrived all the tables and chairs were still out on the banks of the Mekong from earlier in the day but we were found some others, the food though was fantastic - fish and chips, the fish in beer batter and the chips were real fat wedges, the salad was really fresh too with balsamic vinegar and proper tomatoes. The only down side was the tuk tuk driver who tried to scam me out of 50,000 Kip from Khop Chai Deu (we walked it in 15 minutes with a 4 year old). The owner (I think) is an expat of Oz as their were many references to Australia but I never met him/her so I dont really know 100% but any thoughts on where they got the name "Spirit House" from?
