Big C Extra has a good selection of imported beef and lamb.

In Pattaya, you can get OK quality meats at AKA, and TKM foods.

 

Both have about the same selection of local and imported meets, at about the same price.

 

If you want something better, you can order from Paleo Robbie (but don't get their patties).

They ship from Bangkok, and have better selection imho.

 

Makro (south Pattaya) has a good selection of (NZ) Lamb.

Well-aged beef at Arno's in Terminal 21. Take a look at their deli counter.

Price dosn't necessarily mean quality...marinating and how cooked can make the cheapest cut just as good. Food mart on Thappraya I find is good enough.

yeah, good luck. treat hindquarter thai beef as you would western forequarter cuts. ie grind down or stew/ casserole, long and slow. premium price for imported. other meat (chicken and pork) a bargain. I personally steer well away from 'local' seafood, for many reasons (concerns that have been in many threads and news articles). meat aplenty, good meat... less so. welcome to the local palate. a couple of bottles of samsong make every dish taste ok (ish).

Lot's of meat available in Pattaya. Aged, young, tenderloin, light, dark, great selection. From what I understand, most of it comes from Issan.

BIG C on Central, excellent selection, but it's not cheap. The beef is Australian.

Makro, frozen section, MB4+ marbling score badge on the bag (can't remember the brand but easy enough to find), seems to be local Angus. I spotted it a month ago and yes, surprisingly it was good. Other than that I prefer Friendship over BigC extra. 

 

For steaks, age it.

There are farms like Chokchai in Pak Chong. Grasslands, I think that's where the majority comes from. Not sure what breeds, Chokchai itself is a dairy farm.
