Another good suggestion. I'll try it, although I'm always a bit wary of chicken from stalls. Last night, after leaving the Rockhouse and a visit to Kink, I had the prawn chow mein from Chow Mein Charlies on LK. It was good, but not great. The lady who did the cooking before was better than the guy who does it now. And worst of all, they took spring rolls off the menu. I like Chow Mein Charlies because they cook everything to order right in front of you. The fresh spring rolls, straight out of the fryer, were excellent. Evil

Never been there , Kev In Thailand has meets there .. that chicken breast looked pretty good ... as an aside I saw a deal in Robin Hood this week.. 149 for a Chicken Parmigan is it ? Or maybe hunters chicken .,, anyway you get a free beer normal retail 249 this week only 149 .. sounds like it’s worth a chase up ... Looked a big portion ...
The Hideaway Guest House and Bar on Soi 15 between The Avenue and Soi Buakhao has recently added a Rib Shack. A sign at the front of the Hideaway says the hours are 6 p.m. to midnight, but a post by the owner elsewhere on says the dinner menu is available from 5 p.m. to midnight. The Hideaway also serves breakfast and has snacks like onion rings and chicken nuggets available at other hours. As the name indicates, grilled spare ribs are the focal point of its menu, which features a limited number of dishes. That's an admirable approach I wish more Pattaya restaurants would follow. It's far better to concentrate on a few dishes consistently done well than a long list of mediocre offerings. It's a grill menu with a U.K. rather than U.S. touch, as you won't find Cumberland sausage at many BBQ places in Memphis or Kansas City. I wasn't in the mood for spare ribs the night I ate at the Hideaway and had the grilled chicken breast for 175 baht instead. It came with a choice of French fries or rice and I took rice. The chicken breast was moist, tender and had a good charcoal taste. It wasn't overwhelmed by the BBQ sauce. The small portion of salad consisted of fresh and crispy ingredients. I'm not a fan of raw onion on salad, so I pushed it aside. The condiment basket included a bottle of Heinz salad cream and I used it with an extra splash of malt vinegar rather than the thousand island dressing on the plate. The Hideaway is a clean and comfortable place to have a meal, a snack or a drink. Customers can play pool for free and there's a big-screen TV for sports. The service is very friendly. I had never been to the Hideaway before and the owner greeted me warmly, then came back and asked if everything was OK once my meal arrived. Two of the waitressed also asked me the same question. That sort of interaction with the customer is sadly lacking in many Pattaya restaurants. Bottom line: I'll be back to try the ribs and the Thai daily special. Evil
Useful review. Chunky Munky doesn’t quite seem to be hitting that spot. You’ve been generous returning but there does appear to be a reoccurring theme of poor quality food coming out of the kitchen, albeit at a budget price, but at the cost of flavour.
Nice report Evil. Not quite sure what you would expect for 99 baht to be fair, that’s not even the price of a 6” sub from Subway. Less than a hamburger from McDonalds. I would expect tasteless shit for that price but again that’s just my opinion. You’d be as well buying a ready meal from 7/11.
I haven't had much luck at the Chunky Monkey. I tried the 99-baht daily special yesterday- chicken rissoles with onion gravy and mashed potatoes- and it was as bland as, well, unseasoned chicken. The only flavor came from the thick, glutenous package gravy to which a few bits of onion had been added. The chicken patty itself was totally lacking in any sort of seasoning and consequently, no taste either. On the plus side, the mash was good and the patty had been cooked properly. It wasn't dry inside, but it had an extremely smooth texture, though, which gave it a weird mouth feel. The rissoles would have been much helped by the addition of diced onion, garlic, carrot, green pepper, whatever, but most of all it needed herbs or spices. There are dozens of variations to Australian-style rissoles. There's no one right recipe, but there is a wrong way. I scraped off the icky gravy and gave the rissoles a few splashes of HP Sauce from the condiment basket. That improved them, but it didn't make them good. Bottom line: The Chunky Monkey now has two strikes against it in my book. In the near future, I'll try either the Sunday roast or the meatloaf dinner. A third strike will put it out for me as a dining option for quite awhile. That's unfortunate, as it has a convenient location and an enclosed air-conditioned dining area. It's well-lit, clean and spacious, with the background music played at a blessedly low volume and friendly service. Not many budget restaurants in Pattaya tick all those boxes. The prices for bottled beer are very low (55 baht for Leo and Chang, 65 baht for SML) and big bottles cost 79 baht. Those are New Plaza prices, but in more comfortable surroundings. Perhaps that will be enough to attract customers who aren't concerned about bland food. However, the cocktail van across the street could give it a run for the money for the budget-conscious drinkers.

In the morning, 50 million Americans watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on television. It's the world's biggest parade, with 3.5 million people flooding the streets of Manhattan to watch it live. In the afternoon and evening, a lot of people will watch U.S. football on TV or attend local matches. There's a long tradition of football on Thanksgiving Day. In many communities, the Christmas season also kicks off on Thanksgiving Day, with a lot of families attending local events. Evil
i actually dont know why . all i know is they sacked him and closed the bar for a refurb and put in a new manager . normally that just means they think the figures aint good enough and so put in a new manager who they think will do better .
