RICHMAN POORMAN: the restaurant, End of an Era

Recommended Posts

He was friendly to his golfing buddies, but for the rest of us, not so much.

I went there once about a month ago and waited an age for my English Breakfast...(which was okay once delivered) the owner was apparently on business in Cambodia.

The yanks must be leaving port big time.

The young lad behind Big Kahuna has also jumped ship although the grub is still top notch by local standards.

Good luck to all & RMPM will really be missed

So are the Brits. Simons café, on Soi 5, was my go to place for breakfast in the whole of Pattaya. Run by an English guy, he not only produced great English breakfasts but soled lots of English imports that you just can't get in Thailand. Bury Black Pudding being like gold dust here.

 

Some time ago, sold up to a fat old Indian who sits in a corner all day, chain smoking and glowering at the customers. Food is now dreadful.

 

It's descended from being the best place for breakfast to the worst. Would be greatful if anyone can recommend a good English breakfast in Jomtien.

Have visited Pig and Whistle on Pattaya Soi7 for breakfast for a number of years. Back in the day had draught Stella and a very good breakfast. Tried the one in Jomtien recently, overall a good breakfast but the sausages were meh.

Maybe I hit them on a bad day. Sausages were like paste inside, no texture, not much flavour. Like the cheap frozen sausages you get in the UK. If I can't find anywhere else, I'll try them again.

Do any of you readers have any information as to what happened?

I believe the owner moved to the dark side and opened up another place there.  I have seen his posts on Facebook. Think he is running some sort of burger kitchen on wheels.

You could try The Continental Bakery. It is 100 Mtrs down the hill from the coach station. There is a very big choice of breakfasts. I thought it was good, though not outstandingly so.

The crumpets at Simons were one of the vilest breakfast products I have had the misfortune to eat.

It isnt exactly a "full English" but with a little imagination you can turn the Hotel Danmark buffet breakfast into a pretty good approximation. 190B

 

It is certainly the best value breakfast that I know of in Jomtien.

It may be heaving with assorted Scandinavians at this time of year though.
