Breakfast Buffet at Hilton Festival

 

Buffet was surprisingly packed this morning. Very nice selections in most categories, but no whole-ham or beefs and no Indian station.I seem to remember them having these pre-covid. 

 

Great selection of breads

Made to order eggs, waffles, pancakes, soups and whatnot.

Very nice fruit selection

Decent cereal and yogurt station

Four flavors of ice-cream (goes well on a hot, fresh waffle...) 

Nice sushi station

Nice cheese & cold-cut station

Plenty of Thai stuff

Hot lattes were pretty good, for buffet fare and the hot-chocolate was said to be excellent

 

It was pretty packed at at about nine-thirty when we got there, but no waiting we got a great table. Weather was great as was the view. 

 

Do you know if The Hiltons Edge Buffet is open again or not.....My can't seem to find info about this.....

I posted on the other thread (about businesses opening and closing) a few weeks ago about the Pulcinella Italian Risto-Pub that has opened in the former Punch & Judy premises on Soi 17 (Soi Region

Yesterday, went to Welcome Inn on Darkside for Sunday Roast. Had the mixed meat for 260B. Outstanding value and enjoyable meal, could not fault it. Welcome Inn has A/C and had about 6 or 7 punter

You have mentioned this in other posts repeatedly???? I know a good short time hotel.

Cheap food can indeed be cheap. But quite often it is only cheap.

 

If you think that more expensive italian restaurants are better when they use exactly the same ingredients as the expensive ones, you must be a real champion and expert !

I think that's the one I'm talking about. The big one on the 15th floor, you go down the escalator and it has indoor and outdoor seating? 

 

Open and busy, at least is was this morning and it's supposed to be open tomorrow morning. Breakfast is 6:30-11:00 Sat & Sun, 6:30-10:30 Mon-Fri,.

 

It was nice this morning, but maybe just because it was Sunday and holiday weekend. I'll report is it's similar tomorrow. 

 

They do not have any of the brunch specials going, so I think it's only for breakfast.

Hilton Buffet Update

 

Edge is (apparently) only open Saturday and Sunday. Buffet not as extensive as yesterday, but the view pretty much make up for it, at least in my opinion...

Are we talking about looking at an empty plate where the previous day it had various items of food on it or something else?

The view in Cheap Charlies may not be to your liking but the 89 baht breakfast is worth taking a look at :thumbsup:

I'm not sure I understand your question. On Sunday the buffet was served in the Edge restaurant, and was quite extensive. Today, the buffet was served in the Horizon restaurant, but while still good, was less extensive.

 

I don't doubt I would enjoy both the view and the 89 baht breakfast at Cheap Charlie's. The only thing I enjoy more than a cheap breakfast is a free breakfast, or better perhaps a free breakfast with a a cheap date...

 

Nicely done.

Oh no!

Another Sichuan restaurant.

 

<deleted> man lou

What was deleted rhymes with Foo but uses a U

2nd road

North Pattaya

 

Now on Hungry Now delivery 

 

Long ago I posted about this restaurant in house and concluded that they have some good food but complained about their high prices. Yes my feeling was that its overpriced for what you get.

 

For examples kung pao chicken and mapo tofu both at 260.

 

Hungry Now used to feature the decent and well priced Chengdu Sichuan restaurant but that's apparently been long closed.

 

So <deleted> Man Lou is their new option in that space. 

 

I sampled their menu on some orders and overall thought that their food was mostly  pretty good. Better for my taste than the previously mentioned Tai Chin which I have been ordering via Lineman.

 

As is sadly typical with Pattaya Sichuan restaurants their Sichuan peppercorns are weak and not fresh enough. 

 

They do have some dishes you don't often see such as so called Chinese pork hamburgers in house made pastry. 80. A good variety of noodles with sauces which are priced OK. 100 to 150.

 

I did try their fish filet slices in chili oil mini hot pot for 480. Thats a market price for that dish here but I was disappointed both on flavor and portion.

 

Hungry Now has free delivery so that compares well to Lineman that has high by distance delivery fees.

 

I know you're all waiting with baited breath but Lineman has another Sichuan restaurant on Pattaya Tai that I never heard of that I hope to give a try. It should be noted that sometimes Lineman has listings for restaurants that are long closed.

 

Many of the apps have menus only in Thai or Chinese. I've avoided those but finally started looking at a system of doing screenshots and then Google translation for restaurants that I'm motivated enough. For example Shanghai on 3rd road on Lineman.  Does anyone know if its still open?

I eat at Cheap Charlies on a semi regular basis, for that breakfast. It is OK for me, have a small appetite and that fills me OK.

 

Yesterday evening went to Chill Inn soi bukhao after having not been there for a while.

 

I had the chicken shnitzel  with fries. Everyday special at 89 baht, Good enough for me.

Glass of wine 120bt, water 30 bt ( I think )

Food consistent there.

 

Other times I will spend a fair bit more, usually if I want Italian or French food, which are my favourites.

Shanghai looked very closed to me. A shame, as it was on my list of eateries.

Real fries or frozen? One of my favourite places in Bangkok, just off the Khaosan road, is the best for that kind of thing. I would be happy if I could get something resembling their offer.

I love the woman who runs it. Working hard all day. She deserves her success.

I imagine that the places in Pattaya take shortcuts. Frozen chips not anywhere close to freshly cut potatoes.

Oh darn. I suspected as much. I guess I can save the bother of translating their menu then. Its annoying that apps such as Lineman don't seem to bother to delete closed restaurants.

I typically eat all my meals at home. I'm only in patts for the weekend to attend an function. If I were not staying at the Hilton, I would not have come here for the breakfast. That said, pre-covid I would occasionally enjoy the "themed" brunch promotions at the Hilton that I thought were a fair value for what you got.

Frozen.

 

I agree fresh cut and " home made" better.

Fresh can be better, but can be very much worse as well.

Thai potatos are not "chippers" like UK Maris Piper or King Edward.

Vietnamese pizza?

Who knew?

Not me.

 

Apparently its a thing and now its a thing you can try in Pattaya.  No, I haven't yet.

 

What is it? 

It has a rice paper crust!

 

https://www.cooking-therapy.com/vietnamese-pizza/

 

Where is it?

 

In the soi next to Big C on Klang and on Food panda. Very cheap! They also do so called Sichuan mala BBQ even cheaper but I'm guessing its the Thai style mala flavor which is not the same at all as Sichuan.

Thanks

 

News to me.

 

When I get the time, I would be tempted to try the Vietnam pizza and quite possibly the Sichuan mala BBQ.

I had to google it  as it goes.

 

I also found your post on the Sichuan restaurant interesting for 1 item that you mentioned.

 

Chinese pork hamburger in home pastry.

Are any of those likely to be spicy do you know?

I cannot tolerate spicy food.

 

Cheers

No, the Chinese pork burger is not spicy.

They also have some non spicy sauces for their noodles there.

 

Thai style mala is chile hot. I like chile hot but once I bought a jar of Thai made mala BBQ sauce and found it vile (also there is no ma).

I would suggest the cumin dominant BBQ sticks at Thai Chin (Chinatown plaza, north Pattaya and Lineman) ... real nice flavor if you like cumin, not chile hot.

Oops.

I just tried a Chinese pork burger from F_u Man Lou and it was indeed spicy. I liked it but they are small more like sliders than burgers so 80 baht for only one is a bit much. The meat was  more mince than patty  You can also find a choice of that type of food at Ippudo Ramen at Pattaya Central mall of all places.

There is a falafel and hummus place just around the corner from where you were at La Baguette, on Pratamak Soi 6, and is decent.

BTW, does anyone know what happened to the middle eastern restaurants?  Are there any still open in Pattaya?

Just read many are closed in the Arab area. Isn't there a good one in T21 still open.
