Thai Restaurants In the USA


Recommended Posts

I love Thai food, however it is a rip off in most USA ciities as they are very expensive and the quality is about 65% of the taste in LOS.

When I go to my favorite restaurant at home the prices are about 4 times what I would pay for the same meal or dish in LOS.

Yeah, pretty much the same in the UK.

 

The closest they come to being good value are those that are popular enough to operate a all-you-can-eat buffet, but generally the quality can suffer with these sort of deals.

 

One of my good friends owns a Thai restaurant. He said it is the rent/council licenses/gas and electricity/staff costs/suppliers costs etc that make it difficult to make a huge amount of profit, especially just now with the economic downturn.

 

I agree though with you that it's difficult to truly enjoy a Thai restaurant experience in a western country when you have tasted the authenticity in LOS.

In NY and CA, never had a problem. Good value for the money. Yes, 4 times more, but I kind of expect that, no? :GoldenSmile1:

 

What Thai restaurants do you like in Thailand?

Good point, different places have different cost structures. I was in Issan a few days ago and you can get a quarter of grilled chicken and sticky rice for 25 baht. You would not believe the small amount I got last night in Pattaya for 35 baht without sticky rice.

 

I would also imagine if restaurants in the west sold 'real' Thai food they would not have any customers. The average customer probably has never been to Thailand or if they have in BKK for business or a vacation to Phuket. If the order comes to the table with chicken feet or near rotten crab in it most people would run out of the joint, myself included.

 

But I guess you can have a good time at the place, especially if they are small. I used to go to one in Germany and made friends with the owners and other customers, had a great time drinking and going to Karaoke, etc including being a witness to a fight where a guy broke a bottle on the table and cut a guy in the face.

When you say 'Over charge' are you comparing to Thailand or the local Chinese or Burger place next door?

ditto....i am actually lucky enough to have a mom n pop restaurant to go to...he cooks, she runs the front...food is 90% as good as Pattaya (they only immigrated about 3 years ago from BKK, but like everyone else says, its $12US for Pad Thai or the coconut curry chicken or whatever else I like...only $2-3US in Thailand at the places I frequent...so i dont see the point in going much cept when ive got a bad case of withdrawl and need a fix.

 

I just eat thai 80% of the time while in the LOS and make the most of it.

 

cheers, alex

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
