The Hit And Run Restaurant "review" Thread

Recommended Posts

Le Freelax,

Third Road, the Soi between The Buffalo Bar and the Castle, 100 m. turn right. Michel the owner is a well-known guy among the French community since years, cheap French bistro cuisine, .

Closed now, open again, I believe, 7 January.

There is also a menu, a little more expensive now.p1030492sy9.jpg

have to check them out! Is there a Soi between buffalo bar and the castle? Never noticed, was probably distracted...

Hangme Korean Restaurant North Pattaya

My pick for best Korean if seeking an authentic, no attitude, experience. Extensive Korean menu. You can have the classic Korean BBQ (not fake Thai Korean BBQ, the real thing) but I would suggest exploring the soup, stew, pancake, and main dish menu. Of course there are the ban chan (side dishes) included with any order and they are excellent. The prices for set dishes are moderate standard Pattaya Korean prices; of course a BBQ feast order meats a la carte will get expensive (your choice). The crowd is local Korean in Pattaya's Korean district. The place isn't big enough for tour buses, and that's a blessing.

3rd road, west side, North Pattaya road end

While you're in the area if you don't know it, look around, there are other good Korean places to eat there as well. But I would suggest Hangme to start.

Il Primo Sole, Beach Road between sois 5 and 6. Very nice Italian restaurant. They do all the standard Italian dishes, and a great bruschetta. Prices reasonable e.g. approx 250 baht for Penne A l'Amatriciana. Also do Pizzas, though I've not had one. Sort of a strange location as you eat in a corridor! Used to be called Al Capone.

Sounds interesting...thanks for the tip. One other thing I feel people should mention is if the place has enclosed air-con seating. In this climate, this is a make or break issue for many. For Il Primo, is their corridor air-conditioned?

Nope, as it's open at the front and the back (but not overhead). However, lots of fans.

Little Wonder, in the arcade next to Kiss restaurant on 2nd Road. It's a British style greasy spoon. Typical British dishes and they do great chips (like French Fries for you Americans, but bigger). One difference, though, is for Londoners they do Pie, Mash and Liquor! Not quite the same as you would get at Manze's or Cooke's in London, but pretty good all the same. Two pies and single mash - 180 baht. Has seating inside (air-con) and outside.

Small adjustment now to my Hit and Run about

Ons Moeder Dutch Restaurant, Jomtien

I will not recommend the daily three course sets at 280 baht. My suggestion for THICK pea soup (served for example in a large bowl chock full of sausages, with brown bread and speck for 160 baht) stands, and probably some of the other a la carte items are worth exploring as well.

Do you reckon they make their liquor the proper way with EEL water? Edited by Jingthing

It's incredible what you manage to cram into your body.... day in day out experimenting at different restaurants. So much for "you are what you eat".

I prefer clean, healthy food. Healthy is more important than tasty, but I like to achieve both at a meal if I can.

It would be nice if we can cover this too. For clean, tasty food one of my favourite places is Hatchiban Ramen. There's 3 in Pattaya. Tukcom, Central 6th floor and Central Centre adjacent to MK.

Being Dutch I really love Dutch food, including the thick pea soup, but unfortunately it's not very healthy.

That pea soup doesnt sound very unhealthy to me. It does at least contain peas (presumably).

For something really unhealthy look no further than burgers and kebabs, neither of which would ever pass my lips.

Real burgers or kebabs are not any worse than a grilled steak. Cannot see anything wrong about it.

You've got a lot to learn about health food.

The pea soup was apparently "chock full of sausages". Dutch food can be delicious, but it ain't healthy.

Exactly. They're (kebabs) basically dry grilled chicken breast with salad rolled in pita bread. The only unhealthy part would be what sauces people use. If it's just a yogurt and garlic sauce, it's a very healthy meal. High protein, moderate carb and low fat with lots of fiber.

would kefir sauce cater to some niche markets?

Okay... Going to bed now... :P

Mixed up with garlic you probably wouldn't distinguish it from yogurt. Surely it would be lot better than mayonnaise.

The stuff that passes for meat on those rotating doner kebab skewers that one sees all over town has little in common with steak. In fact in most countries it would not even be described as meat. "Reconstituted animal matter" is more likely. I dont have much faith about what is in hamburgers here either.

Now if you are talking about proper kebabs (ie lumps of whole meat skewered and grilled), that is a different matter.
