  1. The Hit And Run Restaurant "review" Thread

    Well I went back for pizza and I have to say it was probably the best pizza I’ve had here. Knowing the many preferences and definitions of a good pizza along with my favorite crust being thin and crispy, which it was, I’m fully aware of detractors and naysayers chiming in but that’s okay. That said the thin and crispy crust was cooked to perfection, none have been better than I’ve found here. The sauce was very tasty and flavorful along with a more than ample amount of toppings. Jim reports that soon plans are in the works for other styles of crusts soon. I ordered the Metropolitis, it did not disappoint. New on the menu is Thai food. Jim had high praises for his Thai chef from Bangkok. My Thai gf ordered Tom Yum Goong and surprisingly she enjoyed the dish. I say surprisingly because she is known for being very discriminate being a somewhat of a Thai chef herself. It is highly unusual for her to like any Thai dish from a restaurant especially a Farlang Restaurant, so my hat’s off to the chef. What a a great place for dining, both of us will be back!

    I’m certainly not an expert on Hawaiian themed. Ambience and decorum looks Hawaiian as does the menu with the names of the offerings. I did have a slice of pineapple next to my burger if that counts. Seriously, Big Kahuna is a nice touch but I enjoyed the food even more. :-)

    Big Kahuna In the old Pastrami and Rye place, same great chef. Had the bacon cheeseburger, patty was cooked fresh, not frozen. The bun was toasted to perfection. Definitely a quality burger, good to see Jim back. I’ll definitely be back for more, probably try the pizza next. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect

  6. It's the Socks and Sandals Thread

    Like a lot of things I tend to look the other way, to each their own. I refuse to worry about it, now if it were me doing this odd stuff, yeah it would be worry some. Being from the states it would more than likely be considered “goofy”. Kind of like the little kid in Walmart tugging on their mother, pointing and laughing at your weird get up. Not for me but I certainly won’t lose any sleep over it.
  7. Boeing 747 in NaJomtien

    I’m certainly no expert either but the last above plane looks similar to a C-47 Douglas transport or a variant, definitely not a “Jumbo Jet”.

  12. Diabetes / Bread Choices &/or Alternatives ???

    I would go talk to the German owner of Back Fabrik, 2nd Rd Jomtien between the two clusters of Jomtien Beach Condo. BACK-FABRIK 350/76-78 Jomtien Sai Song Muang Pattaya, อำเภอ บางละมุง ชลบุรี 20150, Thailand +66 61 642 6575 https://goo.gl/maps/bxgwaURkWr82 http://www.back-fabrik.com/ The owner is slim guy about 6’ tall, also speaks English and is friendly and receptive when spoken to. I’m sure he knows more about baking bread than anyone I know and can at least advise you about the sugar content of his finished products.

    รัศมีทะเลเผา379 Seafood Buffet on Bun Alley in Jomtien now for only 299 baht, all you can eat. https://goo.gl/maps/cK9uJbJuiq62 I'm not normally a big BBQ Thai style seafood fan but for the money this is probably one of the best I've been to. I've been to some top end seafood places and know that there are some pricey dishes out there, but value wise this place is good enough imho. Since my Thai gf approves of this place I know it must be good. Personally I had the chicken and pork skewers with bacon and thin sliced pork steaks. Great value for only 299 baht now, all you can eat seafood, pork, chicken and much more. The service was great and the food was fresh. The food was so fresh that the seafood was literally jumping off the grill, so much so one of the servers had to come over and tame it down. I assume they gave the food a quick freeze. Anyway this made for a great way to end Christmas day. Between the two of us, 2 buffets, one large Leo and a water the total came to 688 baht iirc. Not a bad price for an enjoyable night out.
  14. The best priced Internet leased line @ home

    The condo I reside at has two wireless choices by day or month. Like your experience they are usually pretty slow and sometimes hit and miss. Luckily TOT came and connected to the phone landlines. I’m getting about 45 mbps download and about 10 mbps upload off a 5g wireless router connected to the landline. Fast enough to upload huge files and watch Netflix without interruption. 690 baht plus I believe 7% VAT for 738.30 baht monthly. Can be paid monthly or more.
  15. Chillies / Peppers .....Where?

    The third pepper down looks an awful like the common bell pepper in the US. The rest do look plumper compared to others I've seen in local markets.
