  1. I'm a big fan of Taco Taco, but I haven't been back too many times since they moved to Soi 9 off Pattaya Klang, simply because the old location, a stall in the Soi Buakhao night market, was more convenient for me. No doubt, though, that the new enclosed, air-conditioned restaurant is a far more comfortable place to have a meal than a fold-up table in front of the old stall. The menu has expanded considerably, too. I went back yesterday to try the Taco Tuesday special: And a tempting pic from Taco Taco's Facebook page: The following tacos cost 60 baht
  2. Il Peccatore ("The Sinner') is an Italian restaurant that's been open since mid-November on Soi Lengkee, about half way between Soi Buakhao and 3rd Road. I read that the owner named it Il Peccatore because Pattaya is a city of sinners. It features indoor and outdoor dining areas, with the enclosed area strictly non-smoking. The indoor area had about 15 diners when I arrived and I didn't want to get intrusive with my camera, so I only took pictures of the bar area. I had been meaning to try Il Peccatore for awhile, but never got around to it until last nig
  3. Someone I know personally wrote on another board that Nueng's Pies do indeed deliver and delivery is free on orders above 300 baht. He said Nueng responds quickly to messages via Facebook. Evil
  4. I've had Nueng's pies in the past and they are good, but I fully acknowledge I have limited experience of UK-style meat pies. She's located on the Darkside and (edit in) delivers to central Pattaya. All the pics come from Neung's Pies FB page.
  5. says I. I just read the following on Facebook: I'll try to find out if it's finito or he is just moving to a new location. Evil
  6. and to Flo. Simon's has been going for awhile, but has changed locations a couple of times. He has a dedicated customer base and gets a lot of word-of-mouth recommendations among Israeli and other Middle Eastern visitors as some of his dishes aren't available elsewhere in Pattaya. Evil
  7. I've finally gotten around to writing up a review of Simon's Hummus Laboratory on Soi Buakhao at the north side of Buakhao Night Market. It's on the upper level above the SCB branch and next to Amazon Coffee. Whether it's on the first or second floor depends on what country you come from. ? It's easy to miss Simon's because there is no eye-catching signage on the ground level. The yellow arrow marks the entrance to Simon's. Simon's is an Israeli and Middle Eastern restaurant. As the name indicates and the Web site proclaims, it is focused on "hummus, hummus and more
  8. (The pic above is from Moon's Facebook page. I went back after my first visit to take an exterior pic in daylight, but Moon was for interior work. My pics below). The Moon Diner has been open in Tree Town for about six weeks and I tried it for dinner a few days ago with two friends. Its theme for the menu, decor and background music is an American diner from the 1950's and 1960's. Of course, the Moon Diner has about as much in common with a real U.S. diner as the Siam Garden Restaurant in Norman, Oklahoma would have with any popular Thai resta
  9. Little Tavern began operating in 2018 the premises of the former Queens Arms on Soi Buakhao south of the intersection with Soi Lengkee. Monday I decided to give it a try, but that was a bad choice. The meal I had was squarely mediocre. Actually, I shouldn't have eaten there at all. I had been attracted by an outdoor chalkboard sign that advertised Chicken Kiev with mashed potatoes and veggies for 169 baht. But when I tried to order it, the waitress said, "Sorry, already finish." It was about 7.00 p.m. at the time. Naughty, naughty. A restaurant should ta
  10. Food World has been open about three weeks now, but it doesn't appear to be off to a rousing start. The total space is huge, probably bigger than the food court at Central Festival, but I never seen more than a handful of customers when I passed by, whether morning, afternoon or evening. It's open between 10 a.m. and 10.00 p.m. The food on offer is what you'd expect at a Thai food court, mostly inexpensive Thai dishes, but at least one vendor has Western-style spaghetti.
  11. Time for an update. La Petite Planète has been offering French food for many years now. I don't when it opened, but I've enjoyed meals there since 2008. It's located about half-way down a sub soi that runs along the west side of Tukcom. It's small and there's nothing fancy about it, but the food is excellent. For a unpretentious bistro meal, La Petite Planète is a good choice. I've never had a bad meal there and plenty of truly good ones. It also features a limit menu of Thai food and the girls I've taken there who've sampled the Thai dishes gave it the thumbs up. Last summe
  12. I had dinner New Year's Eve with a farang friend and his Thai companion at Calles Bar and Restaurant in the arcade next to Soi Diana. That arcade, which runs between 2nd Road and Cherry Bar, is something of Pattaya's Restaurant Row. It's home to Kiss Food, Beefeater, Patrick's, Longhorn Steakhouse, My Way, Little India and a couple of others. All were very busy. Every seat was taken at Kiss; Patrick's had a sign up saying it was fully occupied; Beefeater and Longhorn had people waiting for tables. We got the last table available at 8.00 p.m. at Calles. It hadn't been our first choice
  13. Sorry, my mistake. In haste, I read "nasi rames" as "nasi names." Maybe time for visit to an optician for an eye examination. It's been awhile. Evil
  14. You're welcome! Nasi goreng is listed on the menu. Evil
  15. Bali Café is a new restaurant and guest house on Soi Buakhao about 100 meters north of the misnamed Action Street complex. The menu features a half-dozen Indonesian specialties, a few Dutch dishes and the rest international and Thai items. It's an open-front restaurant with "indoor" and outdoor dining areas. The interior is clean, comfortable, well-ventilated and attractively decorated, although I don't see much that is Balinese about it. There is a big screen TV as well as an even larger projection
  16. Bad news for any fans of the Robin Hood Tavern: From Robin Hood's Facebook page: The explanation given in the comments is that the restaurant is suffering shortage of staff. Apparently some staffers didn't return to work after the New Year holiday. Evil
  17. I should have posted this last night, but better late than never. It's a parody of A Visit from St. Nicholas (better known as Twas the Night Before Christmas), a poem by C. Clement Moore that gave us most the modern Santa conventions. As reminder of the times we live in (copyright permission/author credit at the bottom of the poem): Twas the Night Before Christmas Politically Correct Twas the night before Christmas and Santa's a wreck… How to live in a world that's politically correct? His workers no longer would answer to "Elves", "Vertically Challenged" t
  18. We're getting into "last minute" territory, so a few final suggestions: That's a pretty impressive buffet, especially the mains and dessert, for 870 baht. I may try it on Christmas Eve. Gian's in Jomtien has a two-week special menu (text from a pic on another board): Christmas Special 2018 from December 16th to 30th Soup Lentil Soup with Capsicum and cumin 390 b Home made Tortellini in broth, stuffed with turkey and truffle mortadella 480 b Pasta Home made Ravioli Stuffed with Turkey, Patanegra ham and topped with white truffle sauce 880 b
  19. The King's Table on Soi 13 between Beach Road and 2nd Road is offering a Norwegian Christmas buffet for 599 baht. "On 24 & 25 December, 2018 Traditional Norwegian Christmas dinner Ribbe (Roast Pork Belly) Served with Boiled Potatoes Roast Ham, Roast Lamb Sausage, Meatballs Prunes, Cranberries and Pickled Cabbage Christmas Cake and more Starts at 5.30 p.m. All you can eat!!! Only 599 baht!" To continue the Scandinavian theme: Livv on th Darkside and Akvavit in Jomtien: Here's a translation of the Akvavit Christmas Eve menu: "Akvavit's C
  20. If you haven't made any plans for Christmas dinner, now would be a good time to make a decision. The popular places are likely to be booked solid , although from what I hear, seats are still available at nearly all restaurants. The best value-for-money option I have seen is still the all-you-can-eat buffet for 500 baht at the Chik 'n Coop bar in the arcade that is a 50-meter walk south of Kiss Food. There's more info on it earlier in this thread. Santa Penevil Sent from my Sunny2 Plus using Tapatalk
  21. Same same for me. Opera is better for me than Chrome or Firefox. Evil
  22. I had Thanksgiving Dinner at Tigglebitties and it was very good, with a large portion of turkey: Santa Penevil
  23. After an atrocious Christmas dinner in 2016, Hooters is this year sticking to what it does best: booze, calendars and attractive waitresses.
