New York Diner on Walking Street

Recommended Posts

Since it opened in August, 2014, New York Diner, next to Insomnia on WS, has been a late-night  option for me.

It offers tasty and (relatively) cheap U.S.-style comfort food as well as some international and Thai dishes.  The food won't made your taste buds want to run up the stairs and dance in Insomnia, but it's very acceptable when you need something solid to soak up the booze at 2.00 a.m.

The seating is comfortable and I personally like the New York themed walls.

The New York Diner is part of the Insomnia group and there's a hallway connecting it to Ibar. From time to time, I've seen some of the more famous Insomnia princesses having a meal at the New York Diner without farang male companions.

It's also not a bad spot for people watching.  I've seen everything from fist fights to what I figured was a marriage proposal-  or maybe the girl was just ecstatic over an offer above 1,000 baht for L/T.

A few nights ago, I had the grilled ham and cheese sandwich for 109 baht. Simple comfort food, but sometimes that's all you need after a few hours of imbibing.

Last week I had the macaroni and cheese for 249 baht, which the waiter said was a popular choice. Mac and cheese has become a favorite dish in several countries around the globe, so it doesn't surprise me that more than Americans order it. The pieces of crispy bacon really added flavor.

It wasn't a big portion, but it was enough for me when my belly was already pretty full of beer.

I also tried the current special offer, a pulled beef sandwich for 285 baht.  It was good, slow-cooked beef with a homemade barbecue sauce and all the trimmings, but not good value for money.  There a restaurants all over Pattaya where you can get a full for about the same price, including New York Diner!

Some representative prices from the menu:

I quite like the chili cheese dog at 219 baht, even though that's a premium price. Be aware that the chili topping is spicier than you'll normally get in the U.S.

New York Diner has several types of pizza on its menu, but I don't think the 69-baht special is currently on offer.  It was OK, nothing special, but acceptable.

I haven't taken any pics of the spaghetti Bolognese for awhile, but it is basically the same.  The portion isn't large, but sufficient as a late-night beer soaker.

New York Diner also has an extensive Thai menu with some "value for money" prices. I haven't tried the Thai food, but I've heard it is pretty good.

Bottom line:  I've never been entirely sober when I've eaten at New York Diner, so that may have influenced my opinions of the food.  As a convenient place to get a food fortifier late at night, New York Diner gets the job done.  It wouldn't be my first choice for a normal dinner, but it's OK for snacks and comfort food in the wee hours.

I ate there once but wasn't overly impressed.  The main reason for going there was I was looking for Don Joe, I was disappointed to find the New York Diner in it's place...............

Believe Don Joe relocated to Jomtien, be interested to visit another time.

 

I would concur with Rob that New York Diner would probably be good for a convenience meal or when full of the beer.

Most f it sure looks like American "food"...

With a stomach half full of beer the chili burger dog would make me puke instantly just at seeing it.

But nice reporting anyway, as usual !

Would you eat it if not drunk? Would take a skinful for me to eat that beef sandwich.

Pizza looks like 99cent one from Wal Mart.

I have never been sober after midnight (tried it once didnt like it)

Agreed, it all looks pretty cheap with small portions to boot. Now, before Pork Rind blows a gasket, this is only my impression based on Evil's pictures. :)
