The Hit And Run Restaurant "review" Thread

Recommended Posts

That pea soup doesnt sound very unhealthy to me. It does at least contain peas (presumably).

For something really unhealthy look no further than burgers and kebabs, neither of which would ever pass my lips.

You've got a lot to learn about health food.

The pea soup was apparently "chock full of sausages". Dutch food can be delicious, but it ain't healthy.

Rollmops aren't healthy?

The pea soup must still have a proportion of peas in it, which presumably makes it healthier than no peas at all.

Exactly. They're (kebabs) basically dry grilled chicken breast with salad rolled in pita bread.

And the women on Beach Road are there to practice their English.

i dont know about that, but in bangkok the chicken breasts or beef can be clearly seen as they place them on the spit at any number of stalls and restaurants on soi 3

And the first four answers are already comments laugh.png

Something I found : restaurant Split in Soi Chayapruek. According to the owner the only "Yugo" in Thailand. The owner is from Yougoslavia, lived then 20 years in Germany where he was running several restaurants and came to Thailand a couple of years ago.

We had the grill platter. Not bad, maybe a tad too salty. Djuvec rice, cevapcici, all you would expect, including the yulicka after. The platter is 490 Baht, feeds two people and a three year old. post-6036-13567410788926_thumb.jpg

looks very yum! ambiente acceptable to dine there with guests from abroad?

it's a shop house, I'd say okay to bring guests, but it's not the Ritz really. Added bonus for you :the menu is in German.

The place has aircon, but when we were there the weather was cool enough and they had the door wide open.

It's the sausages mate, the sausages... but the peas are made from dehydrated split peas, not fresh peas.

Have you been picking your brains to find some healthy Dutch food? I haven't eaten rollmops for many years - you tell me if they are healthy.

Are you here to hijack the thread? What sort of stupid comment is that?

I know exactly what goes into the kebabs I eat. If you're buying them while drunk on Walking Street, that's your problem.

Now if you are talking about proper kebabs (ie lumps of whole meat skewered and grilled), that is a different matter.

That is what we're talking about and that is what we get.

And that's why we have this thread to inform each other where the good places are.

Now back on topic please.

Hoping to keep this "Hit and Run" brief restaurant thread fresh. Then, when people find new places over time that they would like to mention in brief, there is the space here to do that.

Anyway, here's an idea to jazz things up a bit.

If you have tried any of the places mentioned in this thread based on reading about them here, perhaps you'd like to offer some feedback?

No.

There is really no need for everyone who isn't interested in participating in this thread to post No. But thanks!

Here is another very vague restaurant tip. I sniffed it out but haven't tried yet. It looked promising and hope to get there. Maybe someone will beat me to it and comment on it.

Anyway, here is a vague description.

It's an Italian restaurant in a shophouse off Soi Buakow.

To find it head south on that soi towards Pattaya Tai starting from Soi Lengkee.

Then a ways down on the right hand side, you will see a sign for an Italian restaurant pointing down that soi.

There is some kind of fried food fast food joint on that corner.

I did peruse their menu and it looked good, casual, and well priced. Mostly pastas, I think some seafood, some appetizers. Dishes such as spaghetti puttanesca. The ownership and clientele appeared young and Italian and the food on the tables looked authentic. Wasn't hungry at the time so didn't try as yet. Sorry no name to supply yet. Like I said: vague!

There is a Thai restaurant on Sukhumvit just across from the entrance to Soi Khaotalo (actually there are two side by side but I'm talking about the one closer to South Pattaya Rd. It's called Chok Anann but the sign is (AFAI can remember) only in Thai.

Very popular among the Thais, very reasonably priced and the food is usually good. It's one of the few places I've found that serve tom yam Pra Koop (dried, smoked fish).

The fish itself is not very good to eat but it does give the tom yam a great, smoky flavor. I suggest ordering it with sea bass, but any seafood or something from the turf will taste good as well.

Make sure you tell the staff to let the soup simmer for at least 15 minutes (they usually serve the food very quickly) because if less than that the smoky flavor wont be transferred to the soup properly.

And please share if you know of other places that serve this dish.

Hi

It`s "restaurante itialiano " , not an original name , run by an Italian by the name of Massimo.

He used to have an Italian restaurant & Pizzeria on soi Excite( near the soi Chayapoon end) and re located something over a year ago to where you have described.( without the pizzeria part)

I`d been to his old place several times, it was mostly Italian clientele then and amongst my favourite places.

Food I found to be excellent, prices OK also.

Not yet tried his new place, when I last looked it was busy.

So is this on the same aide of sukumvit as soi khao noi or on the other side of sukumvit? I think it's on the same said so if you come out of soi khao noi it would be on the right correct?
