My Canterbury Tales


Recommended Posts

Hi Fellas

 

Stayed opposite Canterburys during May 2009, at the the Chow Soy.

 

I breakfasted here on 20+ occasions, so I must have liked it!

 

I chose the big breakfast every day (fat bastard) which included:

 

2 eggs, 2 bacon, 1 sausage, beans, tomato, black pudding, 1 toast and marmalade, Tea or Coffee and orange juice.

 

For a grand price of 140b!

 

Well, many adventures ensued.

 

I was sat with Dave on my 1st day. The waitress got my order wrong (big not small breakfast), but altered my bill accordingly 10 mins later. Dave commented 'f*cking typical'.

 

The waitresses seemed a bit too small (or young) & therefore inexperienced / immature. I thought that they were Dave's daughters at first. :IdHitIt2:

 

Dave is the master of marketing, with his 'orange juice' that is 'orange cordial', & his daily newspapers that are usually 2 weeks out of date (you might find yourself reading the same paper on the plane & on your last day.) I stayed 5 weeks so was glad to be updated on blighty, although belatedly! :MonkeyFight:

 

The food. In one word - excellent. Well cooked & tasty, the best VALUE breakfast in Pattaya!!!

 

Imagine a breakfast you might get from a greasy spoon in the UK (although suprisingly not greasy!)

 

There were various minor problems during my 20+ forays into CTs.

 

Wrong order delivered.

Orange cordial not delivered (didn't care anyway)

Sausage not included (blasphemy!!! Sorted with a quick word.)

Asked for ice coffee, 1 waitress did not understand on several occasions.

 

To summarise. Top work Dave. Great brekkie. Minor teething problems with staff. :GoldenSmile1:

 

For comparison, the Butchers Arms down the road offers a big brekkie inc a pot of tea for 200b, for you LDOPs :Grin_Jump1:

 

Their linconshire sausages are to die for though! Although their fried potatoes leave something to be desired!

 

There is also a nice Thai place to the right of CTs. My Tilac & I ordred lab moo, pad seeyou, som tum & 2 cokes for 150b!!!

 

Sorry Dave. Honest review mate.

 

Best Regards

Ah I think I may have gotten too excited while making this a seperate topic.

 

Mods, please move these posts onto the already busy existing CT cafe topic if possible.

 

One thing I would like to add (sorry Dave negative again) is my tilak's comments regarding the food.

 

On tasting the Tom Yum, she remarked:

 

'Not same before, sailor bar soi 8, not same everywhere, not good here.'

 

I did notice that the soup was rather watery, not creamy like she had had before.

 

Just my (& my tilak's) observations Dave. You might want to rehash the recipe!

 

Peace

The breakfast is OK, reasonably good value, but Dave appears to change his staff more often than his shirt - I have never been to a Farang restaurant where the staff get the orders wrong so frequently(basically just breakfast). Fried egg instead of Scrambled, missed beans, missed sausage, missed toast, missed orange - not all at the same time and I have had quite a few breakfasts there so its not that bad.

Its not the fault of the staff - may be Dave and his wife should do a bit of training for new waitresses and kitchen staff.

Yes I am aware that the staff do make mistakes and often is their fault but sometimes I have to laugh as the other day an Ausy guy shouted to the girl serving " how about a cuppa Luv".

 

She looked at him and didn't really know he was talking to her, I asked him if he really though she knew what he said, he said I should explain, of course I can but I am not there all the time, and as we know with the Thai staff they are no apt at saying 'excuse me what was that" so please guys we do train them but there is only so much they can take in when customers dont know how to ask for it, so please be clear and most of the time they get it right.

 

I spend a lot of time in the Cafe and is very noticeable that when a customer asks clearly for something he normally gets it, but sometimes I cant even understand what they say so there is bound to be confusion.

I have just had many breakfasts over the last 4 weeks and enjoyed all of them, the young girls there are very nice, especially the one that normally takes the order, she always smiles , remembers what you like, I always had no 1 breakfast, she always turned on the fan straight awaay when you sat down, you just had to make sure they understand what you want, the only thing I would stay to dave is maybe put a few more beans in the coffee.

Always a good group of guys there to have a yarn with, a great spot,

 

carry on Dave.

Thanks Regor, it is an awkward one the coffee, some like it strong, some like it weak, really if its too weak ask them to put nit noy more in, they will.

No lake no more, they fixed the drainage and the road, although the road is showing signs of wear already, I think they call it a bodge job, but when it rains its gone very quick now.

Palmers Bar which is well-known for its standard English fare is on Pattayaland Soi 2 close to Boystown.

got to say, went there a couple of times last trip and had no problems.

 

One thing I have always wanted to ask a farang restaurant/cafe owner, why do the fried eggs always come half cooked (still clear whites)? Gives me the 'boak' (nausea).

I try to short circuit that be asking them to fry both sides but I would say maybe 1 out of every 20 cafe's/restaurants actually do what you ask.

 

Would be interested in the reply here.

Wha's like us?

Eggs can be a bit temperamental as some guys like them runny to dip their soldiers in and some like solid overcooked, so I am there a lot and keep my eye on things as much as I can and guys do occasionally ask for them to be overcooked or runny and mostly the staff will get it done, I tend to try to get them to keep them consistently similar to the photo in the post above.

Think you 'wanna' change your name to WONDER WOMAN, cos you're such a bitch. :MonkeyFight:

 

iv eaten there over 20 times...

 

I HAVE eaten there over 20 times as well. See above.

 

and never had a complaint concerning the food or service nor any of my fellow bms.

 

Well lucky you! I had minor issues almost every other day, but still chose to eat at CT. I gave what I thought was an honest review (good & bad points IMO.)

 

So what was the Victor 'f*cking' Meldrew comment about?

 

BTW. No complaints from BMs? Use the search function!

 

Peace. :GoldenSmile1:

Much as I'd like to continue this intellectual meeting of minds. I think that we should draw a veil over this whole sorry affair.

 

Is this person representative of the calibre of trusted / advanced members? Count me out.

 

Peace. :GoldenSmile1:

Hi Dave,

 

That's a mighty fine looking meal there in the 1st pic. Is that 'Weiner Schnitzel' ala Kingsmill with chips?

 

BTW you've not answered my previous question regarding the number of sausages included in your big breakfast.

 

Please forward all outstanding sausages to the following address:

 

c/o Victor Meldrew

Hold Close

Shafta Way

County Pennies

R2D2 C3PO

 

Peace. :)

So is there anywhere that serves a American Breakfast.

I tried several places that advertised American fair but ....

I mean orange juice (not tang), real bacon (not those round slices of ham) and hash browns.

And beans for breakfast ???

How about sausage gravy and buttermilk biscuits

... damn now I am getting hungry.

    • 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)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
