Deli Diner Near Tukcom

Recommended Posts

The Deli Diner is a new restaurant near Tukcom. If you're standing on Pattaya Tai facing Tukcom, it's on the right-hand side of the subsoi to the right, about halfway down the block at the point where Tukcom ends. For those who know the area, it's next door to La Petite Planete.

There's not much point in commenting on a restaurant unless you've eaten there, so I put my money and my mouth in the same place and had the four-course special Monday night at the Deli Diner. It was a very good deal at 299 baht for salad, soup, main course and dessert. You had a choice of several different options in all the "categories" except the salad. A bottle of Singha cost 60 baht. With my customary tip, the total cost was 400 baht.

I liked the special a lot. The ingredients were fresh and the dishes were well-prepared and tasty. The individual portions weren't particularly large, but taken as a whole, they yielded a satisfying meal. What more can you ask for 400 baht?

The name "Deli Diner" is a curious choice, as there's nothing deli- or diner-ish about it, at least in the U.S. sense of those words. I'd call it a small bistro that serves "international" and Thai dishes at modest prices. It has an indoor section and a couple of outside tables. There are apparently two more tables on a balcony reached by a spiral staircase.

I like the fact that you can look into the kitchen, but the view isn't unencumbered. The two chefs I saw were both Thai.

The menu isn't large, but it does include a number of Western and Thai dishes. There's plenty of choice for both farang males and their Thai companions. Prices are modest.

The first course was salad.

To call it Caesar Salad was a bit optimistic, but it was in the right direction with crisp, fresh lettuce; homemade croutons; shaved Parmesan and a nice dressing. I ate it to the last morsel, which I seldom do with starter salads.

A small cup of corn soup was up next. Boiled corn kernels had been pureed with stock, which resulted in a velvety texture and distinct corn taste. It wasn't cream of corn soup nor corn chowder, but quite simply, corn soup served with toast and butter.

The parsley added a great flavor accent to the mild soup and I wish there had been more of it.

The baked salmon with butter almond sauce came as soon as I finished the soup.

Salmon is a delicately flavored fish that doesn't require much in the way of enhancement, so butter almond sauce is good choice. Unfortunately, the sauce was the biggest miss of the meal. It tasted like a bland bechamel to me. Either they had run out of butter almond sauce and substituted another sauce without telling me or the chef and I have very different ideas about how butter almond sauce should taste.

post-6485-0-04948400-1458610704.jpg

Anyway, the salmon itself was baked properly but perhaps slightly dry. The vegetables and potatoes were excellent, not the tasteless and waterlogged variations one gets so often in Pattaya.

Freshness seems to be a major factor at Deli Diner. The food tastes good because it's both fresh and cooked properly.

I finished the meal with panna cotta with strawberry sauce. I had actually wanted the creme caramel, but the waitress told me the last one had "broken apart." I don't know if that meant she'd dropped it on the floor or something else had gone wrong with it, but the panna cotta was fine as a substitute.

The texture and flavor were very good and the strawberry sauce wasn't too sweet. Few Italian restaurants in Pattaya do panna cotta that well.

post-6485-0-60854200-1458612268.jpg

Bottom line: I was happy with my meal at Deli Diner, especially considering the price. There was a miss with the sauce for the salmon, but that won't deter me from returning. Right now Deli Diner is open between 10.30 am and 10.00 pm, but a note on the menu says it will open from 7.30 am beginning in April.

Excellent report as always.

Good value for money dining area, would be more popular with me personally if it wasn't for the 'shirt lifters' that profilerate the area, however, despite my paranoia I look forward to giving this place (and next door) a visit in May when my days will be free.
