Best pork pies in Pattaya


Recommended Posts

After extensive research on my part I will plump for Stobarts brand in the frozen products aisle at Tops in Central Beach Road. They are available in standard size of 2 per pack or buffet size 6 per pack. Take out of the freezer in the morning and put in the fridge and they are ready for tea. I give them a 9 out of 10, 1 point deducted for no jelly.

Delicious with a hard boiled egg or 2, mixed pickle (Hayward brand with caulie, thick sliced gherkin and cocktail onions) and a nice piece of extra mature cheddar.

Enjoy.

Yorkies are overrated and overpriced. I went to the shop one time and thought I would treat myself to some beef sausages, arm and a leg but the dog thought they were great.

Champers, I get an impression of a guy sat on his patio in a Union jack T-shirt, also in shorts, socks and sandals, enjoying his Ploughmans.

Yes, they were about the best i have come across but think they have gone down a bit since the pandemic started.

I used to work at a factory in Sheffield and there was a farm on Jawbone that made pies. They started a van round to the factories. It came to us one day and the pies were still warm, memories of warm pies straight out of the ovens in Scotland came flooding back and without thinking bit into it. They were never short on jelly.

Anyone who enjoys pork pies has no taste buds, ie in no position to judge.😄

Surely Pork pies should be eaten cold,  Re: Stobarts Pork pies, I am pleased

Central Tops, imported them, the price also Ok,  before them I just used to

buy Yorkies, but none as good as a real Melton Mowbray proper pork pie.

When in Thailand sometimes you have to settle for the next best thing

Sorry but what you had was not a Pork Pie as they do need jelly - period

I don't recall eating a pork pie in Pattaya with jelly in. If you know where there are some I am all ears  .... as are some inferior pork pies  ...  and sausages.

As an apprentice I was sent to a nearby pie shop for breakfast orders. I had to arrive at the pie shop at exactly 09.40 to see the pies being brought out of the oven. A serious feat to get them back to work as they were red hot with the molten jelly spilling over the top of the pies.

 

When qualified, my breakfast order was always the same, 2 Postlethwaites pork pies and 4 pints of milk. The perfect hangover cure.

Siamsbury's have some jelly in them but not exactly brimming. As for a good English breakfast sausage, I've searched in vain.

I like Yorkie's pork sausages. Good for a sausage sarnie with slow fried onions and mustard of your choice.

OK for teatime too; one day I will post my sausage and carrot pasta dish recipe on the Western Food forum. A great Winter warmer so only really of use for 2 weeks of the year here and very instagrammable as it turns out a lurid dayglo orange.

Sorry if it went over your head.

Of course they should be eaten cold, or you end up like me, losing the jelly all down your shirt.

Scotch pies on the other hand are absolutely delicious hot or cold, but best straight from the oven.

I suggest you try Big Cs Casino brand "Pate en Croute".

Ok it's not called pork pie, it doesn't look like pork pie, but to me, at least, it tastes better than any of the above, and a slice or four go down well with beer and/or whisky! And yes, it's got a little bit of jelly, usually.

Looks richer than a Thai cabinet minister; I will give that a try, looks and sounds delish.

I am a big fan of the black pudding pies that seem to be more and more popular back in the UK. First had one in Melton Mowbray of all places.

And I suppose to you, a bouillabaisse is better than Cullen Skink? Philistine.

Biggest culinary find I ever had was when camping in Scotland. Nipped to the local village for the Sunday papers and smelt something special. Huge made on the premises bridies, straight out of the oven. So good that my then girlfriend sent me back for another. Pies have never been the same since.

Yorkie's! 

143/158-159 Moo 12Nongprue Banglamung

They supply  many shops/stores around Pattaya 

 

 

Worst I have had.  Paid 95 Baht for a small one in Big C a couple of years ago, virtually no jelly and very dry.

Just about acceptable.

 

 

Far better are the pork pies that I have had from Siam Expat Foods in soi Siam Country Club (also available in the Huay Yai Corner Store).

 

 

Saranya's Kitchen:-

Quality is excellent and good value at circa 100 Baht.
