With the easing of Pattaya’s drought, an elderly couple selling water from their truck has switched gears to sell stirred fried mussels and Pad Thai instead.

Panthip Sa-aum and Eakarin Hukathong did good business in South Pattaya during the spring and early summer due to citywide water shortages. But now with taps running smoothly again, people have stopped buying from the “Old Uncle Water Truck” as they are known.
Instead the couple has set up a food shop on Khopai Soi 3, selling tasty dishes for as little as 30 baht each. In addition to their specialties, they also offer homemade raisin bread and roti for dessert.
