Talking about food in Pattaya

The tale of Big C Salad Bar

Remember my article The Tale of the Chocolate Croissant? Here is more about Big C trying to rob their customers ... and fail. This picture is worth more than a long explanation 1- the price of the salad bar in every Big C was 19 Baht / 100 grams. 2- one day, an idiot at Big C though, ...

Terminal 21 food court is awesome!

If you want to eat some great Thai food at a regular price, go to Pier 21 the food court from Terminal 21. It is located at the top Floor, close to the cinemas. At Central Festival, you would pay 140 baht for a simple chicken with basil. On the beach, +200 baht, the same at Pier 21 will cost ...

A food seller and his dog at Jomtien beach.

Jomtien has become a tourist trap, and food price have soared! You cannot find any Thai food less than 100 baht, even a simple fried rice! Food sellers are the only option for the people who are working there, and the Chinese trapped in the hotels. They are creating an ecosystem where every ...

Soup seller at Na Jomtien in the night.

I was passing by Na Jomtien and I took this picture of a small noodle soup seller waiting on the side of the road. There are not so many place now where you can buy food for 40 baht in this area, most restaurant have raised their prices above 100 baht even for a simple fried rice. If you are ...

Fruit season!

Fruit season!

This year the fruit season is coming early. You can see all these trucks selling the Mangoosteen for $0.5 a kilo and they are delicious. I purchased 4kg for 100 baht yesterday, and most of them were not damaged. This fruit called the Queen of the fruits in Thailand is rare in Europe due to its ...

O Delices at Jomtien, a place to check if you want great quality food!

I have no word to describe the chocolate dome I just eaten... It was Top Chief quality . I think that O Delices must be one of the best bakery in Pattaya. You can taste the difference with the semi industrial cakes sold at Friendship or Foodmart. Not to mention Tesco, Big C and 7/11 who are ...

The Croissant tale: Tops Strike back!

I though that the "Tale of the Chocolate Croissant" will be ended with this article https://truepattaya.org/2019/02/05/the-tale-of-the-chocolate-croissant-or-how-the-business-is-done-in-thailand/But this was without accounting the tenacity of the guys working at Tops. These have recently put ...

Strawberries festival at Central Marina

If you are a strawberry fan, you cannot miss this festival! It is the strawberry season in Thailand and the Royal Project is selling their organic strawberries along with all kind of vegetables at Marina Mall, North Pattaya 3rd road, 1st floor at the entrance of Big C. Try the ones in the fridge ...

A lesson to everyone doing a business in Thailand.

At Terminal 21 in a Coffee shop. It all started beautifully. The strawberry tart was to die for. The work of a real professional, very very far away from all the frozen crap sold in Foodland, Big C or Tesco. I was in heaven, ready to write a glorious review, and do it for Google , Trip Advisor ...

It is Chinese new year 2019: the year of the pig!

Every year the Chinese are giving offering for the new year, and are using firecrackers everywhere. It is not a good time for the ducks, who are the main meat offered. Lot of places are celebrating! Wat Chaimonkhol Market Wat Chaimonkhol Market Wat Chaimonkhol Market Wat Chaimonkhol Market ...

Marino Italian restaurant at Terminal 21

My new favorite restaurant is Marino at Terminal 21. Since the opening, I love their pizzas slices (cost about 100 baht) and they are changing the menu all the time so that you never get bored. Marino is the name of the chief, and he is doing the ravioli and the fresh pasta in front of you every ...

“Giant Cone”? You must be kidding!

These "Giant Cone" are now for sale in every 7/11. Whoever gave a name to these tiny mini small cones must have some sort of humour, maybe an overdose of Monty Python? Or maybe a bad translation, when Thai are saying "I have a giant dick" maybe this is what they are really meaning? These ...
