I don't write often about fast-food chain restaurants in Pattaya, mostly because I don't eat in them except on very rare occasions. On an impulse, I tried Texas Chicken at Central Marina.  I was pleasantly surprised; the chicken I got was better than I had expected and it qualified as good.  

IMG_0126a.jpg

Texas Chicken is the name Church's Chicken operates under outside North America.  It's the fourth largest U.S. fried chicken chain in both number of outlets and revenue, but I can't recall ever having tried it in the U.S. as it doesn't have stores in the eastern states.

IMG_0127.jpg

I ordered the three-piece combination for take-away.  It cost 159 baht and came with a small order of French fries,  one biscuit and a "bottomless" cup of soft drink. I also got some mashed potatoes with gravy for 15 baht.  I drank my ice tea in the restaurant; I didn't want to lug it to my hotel.

Here's what I got in my take-away box:

IMG_0140.jpg

The three pieces of chicken were all white meat, not thighs and legs.  They had been battered and deep-fried properly, crisp on the outside, the meat juicy and full of real chicken flavor.  It was far superior to  greasy KFC chicken with its soggy batter and tasteless meat.

IMG_0142.jpg

The sides were less impressive.  The French fries were industrial-style and the mashed potatoes had started out as flakes from a package. The biscuit had been topped with a honey-like sweetener and had a strange texture. It wasn't bad, but reminded me more of a dough-nut hole than a traditional biscuit.

Bottom line:  I don't often get a hankering for U.S.-style fried chicken, but the next time I do, I wouldn't hesitate to make a return visit to Texas Chicken.  The restaurant has plenty of special offers. In that sense, it lives up to its U.S. reputation as the "poor man's KFC"  because of its lower prices.

Yesterday I had breakfast at the Chill Inn on Soi Buakhao.  It's across the street from Jolly's and next door to the former premises of the Great American Sandwich Co. that are currently under conversion to a coyote bar.

IMG_0080a.jpg

It wasn't a calculated move on my part.  I was walking past about 11.00 a.m., felt hungry and saw a sign for a 89-baht breakfast special.  I gave it a try.

IMG_0082.jpg

The breakfast consisted of two fried eggs, back bacon, a U.K.-style sausage, fried potatoes, toast, jam and coffee or tea.

IMG_0074.jpg

It was good for the price.  The eggs were fresh and the bacon and the potatoes fried with onions- they weren't hash browns- were tasty. I  don't like that sort of sausage so i didn't eat it.  The bread was too lightly toasted for me, but that's down to personal preference.

IMG_0075.jpg

I'm well aware you can get three times the food (and probably five times the calories) with the Retox baht-buster breakfast for 99 baht, but the Chill Inn's special was enough for me.  I don't eat big fried breakfasts anymore.

IMG_0077.jpg

It also a pleasant place to sit; open-front, but the fans keep it cool.  I didn't like that they llow smoking- and one customer was even puffing on a pipe-  but the fans kept the fumes away.

IMG_0072.jpg

IMG_0073.jpg

Bottom line:  I doubt I'll have much occasion to eat breakfast again at the Chill Inn, but I was happy with my breakfast there.

i couldnt and wouldnt eat that mate .

the eggs are way over cooked , the sausage is definitely not uk style , its a thai sausage .and there is no place for cucumber on a breakfast .

what you got there was a typical thai offering of what they think a breakfast is .

looks a nice place though .

Sad news for fans of American food:  Richman Poorman in Jomtien is closing its doors.  March 9th is its final day.

I'll have to trundle out there in the next few days; maybe tonight, as the daily specials look inviting. especially the chicken parm at 195 baht:
