Thai Bites

  Given that one of the first things Thais ask each other when they meet up is “Have you eaten yet?” it’s clear this is a nation that’s extremely passionate about its eats. You want to know how good a Thai restaurant is?     Don’t look at the menu, the decor or even the prices. Look at the number of people inside. That’s your quality indicator.     With that in mind we thought we would look at a few Thai dishes. Some are world famous, others are more…

The Breakfast Club

    One essential thing you need to bring with you when you travel to Thailand is your ‘APPETITE‘! No matter where you are in Thailand you’re never too far from a food stall, hovering in alleyways, carts parked on the side of streets, food markets! Food is ‘EVERYWHERE‘! And partly for this reason locals aren’t to be found scoffing beans ‘n’ sausages, bacon sarnies and jam on toast to start their day.       There are thousands of  Thai dishes, of which only perhaps a few are considered…

“I Can’t Believe this is Pattaya” I

    Every time I hear someone bash Pattaya, I’m tempted to say, “Yeah, that’s right … Pattaya sucks. Don’t ever go there”. However, I can’t help but let the cat out of the Pattaya bag sometimes.

So, I’ll have plenty of content to offer as I kick off this new series of articles about the never ending surprises our “little fishing village” springs on me. Food Glorious Food Pattaya…

Marco’s Nuevo Franco-Italian Cuisine

  I first found Marco a couple of years ago in his little shop-house restaurant hidden among the beer bar colony near Rompho Market in Jomtien Beach. Selfishly, I kept it to myself how incredible his food is. But, good food will always be discovered and he was soon the busiest guy on the block.   In 2016 Marco stepped up his game and moved to “Restaurant-Row” on Thappraya Road right next to Bruno’s. In my opinion, both an intelligent and ballsy move. “I wanted to change the vision of…

LA COSTA by L’ITALIANO

    Having been in Pattaya for over 10 years previously on Walking Street I already knew how incredible Nicola’s food is and his new restaurant situated on beach road at the LK Empress hotel, La Costa by La’Italiano in my opinion will be his best move to date.   No fuss. No fancy terms. No pretension. Located on beach road at the LK Empress hotel (on the corner of soi 12) La Costa offers outstanding Italian food as well as Thai dishes.   VAST MENU   Nicola has kept…

No Con”fusion” … Chef Krist makes Chinese Food Contemporary Chinese Cuisine on Pratumnak Hill

  In a world where chefs are celebrities and channels like “The Food Network” bombard us with culinary propaganda 24/7, food has become something more than just fuel to propel us through the day. Where you eat, how the food is prepared, what it looks like and where it comes from are as important as the flavor. Food isn’t just food; its culture, its passion, it is even trendy and fashionable. This past decade, no trend has been more popular than “fusion” food. Just like musicians are jamming two seemingly…
