talung66

If interest is shown over the next 6 months i will endeavour to add weekly specials and good buys for basic groceries for those that live here. for the central pattaya area.And cover supermarkets/Tops/villa mart/big C/max valu/foodland/and tesco lotus. i don't drive so no makro or big tesco.

My first post i will cover rice and eggs two of the basics. this week you can get a 5kg bag of rice from tops central festival for 79 baht.that 15.8 baht a kilo that comes in at around 1 baht per serve.(I am a chef costing based on 200 grams cooked) or a better quality rice from tesco for 100 baht and 2 other brands for 82 baht.

Eggs the best deal of the week i have seen is in villa mart buy one get one free 69 baht.

Looking for other BM to add deals for all basics from kitchen/laundry/food etc.

I find great deals on fruit when out on the bike.  Yep, 10b watermelon and pineapple.  It's just kind of when you see them buy.  Can never find if you go looking.

I think discounts have to be measured by time and travel expense. Does it make sense to go somewhere to save 20 Baht if the Baht bus fare or your petrol is just as much or more? If you are buying in bulk it might be worthwhile.

 

i get more excited by discontinued lines or close to use by date shit. Often the discount on these sort of items is massive. At Big C Extra you often find a table full of such stuff.

70 baht per kilo for chicken thighs, legs and breasts is about the regular price at Big C Extra, Makro, many other places. Thai markets are also good for some things.

The discounted chicken is fine if you want to cook it soon and don't mind it not being the freshest chicken on the block. 70 baht per kilo for fresh, bone in chicken thighs without having to hunt is a good deal, especially considering a substantial meal requires perhaps a quarter kilo. I'm all for frugality, but sometimes the savings isn't worth the effort.

Of course, if your bliss comes from finding bargains, have fun.

Here's a couple tips. Siambury's on the darkside has Emborg 'mature cheddar' for 275 a kilo, and many other cheeses at substantial savings. Much lower than you can get even at Makro. They also have 250 grams of Emborg butter for 49 baht, a very very low price--not sure how they can do that.

I'd consider picking some up for anyone who doesn't travel to the darkside, it's pretty far out there--past the top of the hill on Kao Talo.

Good thread, who gave it a one star?

Great information even for those on a brief holiday as it can get old (and expensive) with the fast food and restaurants.

Great thread mate! When I am in Pattaya I like to get all the specials from Big C but cannot read the catalogues! Pictures of the goods help somewhat but it would be good to see it in English.
