I do highly recommend O Delices in Jomtien Complex.

It's amazing that we have such a high quality shop in the Pattaya area. Kudos to the owners for taking the risk that the local market would appreciate and pay for the quality they offer.

BTW -- I posted an error before. They don't close at 4 PM, they close at 6 PM. But I have heard that they stop doing hot meals at 4 PM though I don't know that from personal experience.

But what has San Francisco got to do with quality boulangeries? When I think of great boulangeries, I think of Paris, Nice, Marseilles even, San Francisco isn't the first place that comes to mind.

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.

That's you. Thanks for sharing.

San Francisco is one of the greatest food cities on the planet for foods of pretty much all culinary traditions, including French. 

I have an international POV. Not so provincial but you do you.

Oh just stop will you? Ridiculous.

All those places must have been shut when I spent time on the West Coast. There's a lot of hype, but nothing that actually lived up to it.

Have been to all those places and they are good.

But the best bread I ever had is San Fran. Especially the sourdough.

I think sourdough is more of an American thing. Nice but I don't remember ever having seen it in a French boulangerie.

O delices Jomtien was selling sourdough bread before.

 

Not sure if they still are.

 

People are intentionally missing the point about the mention of San Francisco so I now see its necessary to spell it out.

 

Pattaya is not famous for food.

San Francisco is.

 

Very few foodies travel to Pattaya for the food.

 

Many foodies travel to San Francisco for the food.

 

So the comment I originally made that O Delices would be considered good in San Francisco wasn't specially about San Francisco.

 

It was a comparison.

 

Of a city not famous for food to a city that is famous for food.

 

A way of saying that I do not think most people expect food shops as excellent as O Delices will be found in Pattaya a city not famous for food.

 

I could have replaced San Francisco for any global city famous for food.

 

Paris? I do not know it. I am not French. Perhaps some Frenchmen can tell us whether this place would be considered good in Paris. Yes I imagine the competition with French food specifically is most intense there.

 

So a rather casually made statement meant to emphasize that O Delices is really really good and we're lucky to I have it here turns into what now?

 

10 pages of absurd hair splitting analysis and arguing?

 

I have a better idea. Try the place of you want. Don't try it if you don't.

 

Cheers

Sorry, as a European, i would have associated New York as famous for it's food, particularly ethnic European food.

 

Excuse my ignorance, I must have been watching too many movies and not visiting the place.

There are at least 5 and possibly 10 US cities that rate as global foodie destinations. To debate the pros and cons of each one is completely off topic here.

 

This topic is limited to PATTAYA AREA RESTAURANTS.

 

Even Bangkok restaurants are off topic here.

 

You can have your opinions.

 

If you want to discuss details about global food destinations you can start a thread on the travel forum.

Your ignorance notwithstanding, there are any number of US cities that offer great selections of ethnic foods.
