Places to eat on the Darkside

Recommended Posts

I've been meaning to start a thread on places to eat on the DS but never got around to it until today.

 

Today driving on Khao Noi just up the hill from La Rouge I saw some construction going on for "New York Pizza" , I stopped in and spoke with some guys, it's from the same owner as NY Pizza on 3rd Rd, They said it will be opening on the 10th of this month, but it seems like there's still a lot of work needed,  (I took some photos but when I plugged my iphone into my computer to download them the cheap ass Chinese replacement charger started smoking...555)

 

Over the years, I've eaten at many places on the DS and will post a review on some of them shortly, with photos, prices, menu selection, etc. 

A few places I'll be posting on soon are Lucky restaurant on SSCC near La Guniette bar, Blue Moose on Soi 9 just off Khao Noi, Fabrice bar, 

 

Please feel free to mention the places you've eaten over on the DS and a quick review.

 

Cheers, 

Joe

I've heard good things about the Salt & Pepper at the top of Khao Talo just past Bird Cage & Happy Moon, is this what you mean?.

On Kao Noi the Troppicana Resturant do quite resonable daily specials, Location - it is just past the Black Sheep Bar and on other side right hand side of the road from the Railway Road. I would also recommend for Sunday Roast the Welcome Inn, on same road but on the left before the Troppicana.  For a more upmarket setting for that special ocassion  try Murphy's Irish Bar opposite the Starlite on the bend after Soi 9 on the left. Food OK and setting good.

Suggestions was always my go to place - great food, owner a really nice guy and the food is well priced and top drawer. He was the chef at Arroi originally, and I must say that when he left arroi turned to shit. Anyway, Suggestions for evening or lunch. 

 

Arround the lake...

 

Shenanigans on the Lake is very good as well - never had a bad un in there. 

 

Lailas Chippy  on the lake - go on Tuesday or wednesday and its good (oil change day) but the rest of the time not so good. Had a real hard on for the blokes wife for a while which was probably why I went in there so much. 

 

Mediterrean Place - used to really love it there but had two massive hits of food poisoning from there, and the second was the full on fever and shakes for 2 days so never go back there now having given them the benefit of the doubt the first time.

 

Local food - take the road up to Siam Country Club golf course (so 7/11, head straight on and not go around the lake). 1 KM up there on the left is a shack that has great local food - their moo tod is to die for.

 

Pumpois Grill - best burger in town. It is tremendous.

Anyone tried the new Japanese place called Wasabi on Ner Plab Wan near Stumble In and Brass Monkey?

 

I spoke with one guy who ate there and he said the portions are small and the sushi not so fresh.

Great deal than for 555Bht a person ... i live close by but hardly ever see customers . 

Would be doing ok if they had a 299Bht buffet but 555Bht a person isn't going to work 

on the darkside .

Terracotta on SSCC just before the lake, middle of new hiway construction site. Good pizza, pasta, breakfasts and Thai food. Good selection of ice cream. Reasonable price, nice people that work there and manage the place.

 

I have not tried everything on the menu yet, sticking to the pizzas and pastas.

I am from Chicago so when I come to Patts 3 weeks at a time I do start to miss some good pizza. Dont get me wrong, I love Thai food but still crave some real good pizza. Pizza Company is about the best I can find. It seems like all the pizza I find dont use ground italian sausage and it drives me nuts. So far the best pizza I found in Thailand is at the Funky Monkey on Koh Samet of all places! My TG sent me a picture of a Pizza Hut ad and said have special. Good pizza or not. 5555. I told her in the USA Pizza Hut is garbage. 5555. I can make some awsome Chicago pizza. I would start a take out pizza place if the demand was there for it, but it can be a little expensive to make and I just dont think people in Thailand are willing to pay for good pizza. Especially Thais!

Try the pizza from Livv on Khao Talo, taste great, just like the Italian place near my old home in Los Angeles.

If you want a pizza go to a real Italian place ... 1 inch of dough and 2 inches of cheese is not a pizza ...  :Finger5:

Have to agree that Kung and Pinkeys are excellent value and always great service and food.Their Sunday lunches are excellent.

Never really had a favourite place as tend to keep trying different ones though I have been going to The Welcome Inn on Khao Noi quite a bit recently.

I do like Kung & Pinkys as well though not been for a 2/3 months one reason being that the specials they offer there were just smaller versions of the main meals so, though cheaper than usual, not enough on the plate for my liking.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
