Pattaya Travel Guide - Eat

You're in Thailand, so you know food is never far away. There are heaps of restaurants, food carts, food courts, food markets, motorcyle-sidecar hotdog and meatball vendors, fruit sellers both mobile and stationary, even a roaming coffee peddling tuk-tuk. OK, so the germ theory of disease doesn't yet seem to be widely accepted but don't let that stop you from ordering the sushi.

Many (although not all) non-Thai-cuisine restaurants also have at least a limited menu of Thai favorites as well.

Chonburi has a lot of fresh seafood and dried fruits. As there are a lot of people from the north-east (ISarn) living and working in Pattaya, there is an abundance of north-eastern favourites such as Spicy Papaya Salad (Somtum) and Spicy Sour Chopped Pork Salad (Larb).

Budget

  • The noodle stall next to the entrance to the North Pattaya Road bus station does a passable ba mii moo daeng (egg noodles with red pork) for 25 baht.
  • Carrefour food court , Pattaya Klang (near Third Road ). Has good food including excellent & cheap Isaan treats like som tam (papaya salad) and khao neow (sticky rice). The Carrefour stand, usually near the parking garage entrance, has inexpensive sandwiches.  edit
